Hmm… let’s see if we can fix that a bit…

I’d still like to take out a bunch of that texture, but wetsuit/basketball rubber is the new superhero-in-leather of the moment, so I’m leaving most of it, smoothing it just a bit, and bringing up the colors to what they should be.

You’re welcome.

Comic Con 2008 Day 1: Con You Feel The Love Tonight?

July 24, 2008
Alrighty, folks, EG and OG here in glorious San Diego (or at a hotel near enough that didn’t cost an arm and leg to stay at).  It has been an epic journey this day.

Our much anticipated day of adolescent frivolity began at 5 in the a.m., after a delightful four, I repeat, four hours of sleep.  You may ask, Why so little sleep?  I’d love to say there was a good reason, but it was due, mostly, to watching the slammin’ dance moves of Optimus Prime courtesy of YouTube.  Sadly, we aren’t kidding.  Here is the proof:

Yeah, it doesn’t take much to amuse us, but if you’ve read this blog before, you know that already.

Anyway, we got up, got ready and were on the road just after 6 a.m., making the two hour trek to San Diego.  Or, what should have been a two hour trek.

Unfortunately, due to a horrible accident (in which nobody was seriously injured), our trip lasted over six hours.  Mostly in bumper to bumper traffic.

As  such, we got a very late start at the Con, missed a few panels, and didn’t get nearly as many pictures as we had hoped.  Nevertheless, we share with you what we did get today.  Please to enjoy:

The first costume we saw - a promising start for the Con!

Well, folks, as mentioned briefly in a previous posting, your delightful hosts will be heading out this week to partake in Geek Mecca, aka, the International Comic Con.

Yes, EG and OG, like hundreds of thousands of other geeks, will put down our D&D sourcebooks and Klingon dictionaries, make our way through the labyrinth of 7 foot stacks of comics and trades, venture forth out of our basements (The Light! The Light! It burns!!!), and travel forth unto San Diego, all for the chance to scowl at Dan Didio and Joe Quesada in person!

Now, depending on our hotel’s wireless capabilities, we will be trying to post a bit each day about our adventures while at the largest gathering of stereotypes in the world. So, be sure to check in, and with any luck, you can revel in all the nerdy goodness vicariously through us!!!

I’m not even a Star Wars fan…
