That big Dalek, Baby Groot, Winter Soldier Irish jib crossover is finally here!!!
Yes, today, we hit Toronto Comic Con – or “Geek Festival” as Akemi refers to it.
Like most cons, much of the fun is in checking out the people in costume. Or at least I assume they were in costume.
When in doubt, follow the woman with wings!
I think I successfully convinced Akemi to dress up as a stubby-limbed dinosaur next con.
I consider myself fairly well-versed when it comes to anime and comic books but even so I can usually only identify half of the cosplay characters. For instance, on the left is Tokyo Ghoul’s Kaneki, but I have no idea who’s standing beside him. More often than not, when I draw a blank, it’s a video-game character. Final Fantasy?
Plenty of Black Panther cosplay at this event.
Ran into my buddy, Duane – a comic con veteran.
Picked up an awesome Dark Matter mug and bag from artist Nicky’s shop.
It’s a Stargate/Dark Matter crossover!
Natasha with the Elizabeth Weir cosplay. Nice!
Even Pikachu put in an appearance.
You shall not pass!
You shall not pass!!!
No. Wait. Wrong big budget fantasy series.
Two and a half hours later…
All in all, not a bad outing. I picked up a slew of cufflinks (including a pair of nifty Walking Dead crossbows) and added to my burgeoning super villain t-shirt collection with some interesting finds (Gorilla Grodd and a motorcycle-riding Orb among them).
Alright. Back to work!
