Wondercon 2008

Yesterday I attended the geek-fest that is Wondercon in San Francisco. I'm definitely on the "artist-geek" end of things, but the "fan geeks" definitely make the event highly entertaining. I picked up some really great books which I'll talk about later. But first here are some pics from the day. These photos were taken with my phone, so apologies for the low quality. Some people really spend time making elaborate costumes. I don't even know who these characters are supposed to be. wingd duo

Ah, yes. Cobra Command! cobracommand.jpg

Again, I have no clue what character she's supposed to be. But it's cool!masked lady

Silent Hill was a pretty awful movie, but I loved the production design, and these evil characters. They were pretty memorable, and I was pleasantly surprised to see these two go through all the trouble of recreating them here. silent hill

Lou Ferrigno! The Original Hulk!!! I'm usually not so easily star-struck, but this guy made such a big impression on me when I was 5 years old and watching the Incredible Hulk on tv with my dad. He scared the living crap out of me back then, and I think also helped nurture my fascination with horror and all things scary. lou
