Comic-Con 2016: Friday Cosplay

I could never do it. I have to run around too much, and I’ll admit my Bag of Holding would likely ruin the effect of any costume I would want to wear anyway. But I admire the heck out of those who put costumes together and wear them all day at the Con; I even more admire those that put together themes.

My favorite of the day — “I saw it in the window and just had to have it.” Time to show the kids some Carol Burnett, people.

He wouldn’t tell me his name…


They are the law.
