more expo costumes!

Later I'll post pictures and links to the people I actually knew at the Expo, but here are a few more costumes:

I think this costume on the right is what I would wear if I decided to go as Extreme Audrey Niffenegger.

Disney's Enchanted costume and Pikachu

I saw loads of versions of this Watchmen guy; they must have got pretty hot. And some gothic lolita Heathers (although I'm not too good on pinning down names to exact styles, you might have to fill me in).


Okay, that last one is me, unintentionally but perfectly colour-coordinated with Gary's Derek the Sheep book. Lamely, I didn't have any costume in mind, but I'd recently bought some go-go boots off Ebay that turned out to be WAY more plasticky than I was expecting, so I thought, if I coudln't wear them there, I couldn't wear them anywhere. I felt a bit silly walking to the Tube station wearing them, but once I got to Expo, I looked rather drab. But I got about five people who 'recognised' my costume; I wish I'd written down the names they gave me. The only one I can remember was Mad Men so yeah, I'll go with that.

Sarah - you look like a very stylish air hostess for the Comics Express. Great photies.

And I must commend you on your colour coordination - I love your sense of style :D

I don't think I like all this costume stuff; it detracts from the actual comics!

Yeah, I don't think I'd want every comics event to be like that. But it was pretty incredible. And to get that many thousands of kids together so companionably, I think it's great they had something they could all get so excited about. Anything that makes people get more into comics, I'm up for it, I think.

This is an addition to the industry, not a replacement for pure comic events. It has to be experienced to be believed!

Meh. I suppose so. Like Sarah says, at least they're into comics in some way!

awesome boots
You look fantastic in your go-go boots! Maybe they should be your trademark thing when you make public appearances?

Re: awesome boots
Ha ha, thanks! I'm not sure I'd want to wear them on a boiling hot day, though! That said, this is England and we don't get many of those...
