It’s good to take a break from the Japan posts every so often. With only five posts left from that trip, this seems like a good time to detour.
In January of this year, when I’d been back to the US for just over three months, Amelie and I went to the Magic City Comic Con in Miami. I took a bunch of photos while we were there, and I prepped them for posting in the blog. What happened next was that I got caught up in moving into my first new apartment in the U.S. since 2003, and I completely and utterly forgot to post the Magic City photos.
With that said, here they are, and only ten months late. For the Flash, ten months is an eternity.
Miami Beach party people. Klingons. Same difference.
I feel like Rocky Horror is too easy for a Con, but kudos to this chick for finding that jacket.
As with any costume from video games, there’s always a good chance I just won’t get the reference. And if I never see another Harley Quinn at a con, it’ll be too soon. Seriously, Harley Quinn and Deadpool are the new Crow – there are far, far, far too many of them at any given event.
This was one of the highlights of the day- a “Peanut Butter Jelly Time” dance party with Waldo, Ash, Spidey, and the dancing banana.
Adventure Time’s Ice King needed a break from the South Florida heat.
What did I say earlier about all the Harley Quinns? It’s a little more palatable when she’s with a Joker, Black Mask, and Doctor Freeze.
Amelie, a TARDIS, and a Doctor. I think that’s a Tenth Doctor, but it’s possible she wasn’t going for a specific incarnation. The vaguely steam-punky TARDIS outfit was pretty nifty also.
There were lots of video-game inspired costumes at this con.
…and a larger than average contingent of DC Comics characters, like this excellent Huntress cosplay. The Batman Begins Batsuit utility belt painted purple is a nice touch.
A pretty decent Thor, with YAH. (Yet Another Harley.)
I caught this Airbender on the escalator.
More DC Comics folks- a Poison Ivy, a Robin, YAH, and a Riddler.
Here’s the reason for all the DC Comics Batman characters- Kevin Conroy, the voice of the animated Batman since 1992’s “The Animated Series,” was doing a panel.
Also attending this con was Jim Cumming, the voice of Darkwing Duck, Winnie The Pooh, Tigger, and many more.
…and back to the costumes. I’m not sure what’s going on with Kitty-Thor, but it’s a very fun outfit.
As we were headed out at the end of the day, we walked right past a very well done Spawn.
Which do you prefer, Coke, Pepsi, or some other third brand?
