my comic con experience

Post by zombiemonkie » Wed Jul 29, 2009 3:17 am

first off i have to say how much fun i had this year..... and i owe it all to NOT waiting in stupid lines for signings and toy releases.
honestly all that lineup and wait stuff was begining to kill me. so i just wondered, bought very little and had tons of fun at free partys and bars!
here are my pix

i saved money by sleeping in my car the ENTIRE week this year. it was tough but super fun... and the cop's didnt hassel me at all!
Image

1st night: free gwar show... w an open bar! man did i get wasted!
Image

ran into zander cruse at the show! MASTER CYLENDER PANTS!!!
Image

12" stormtrooper customs. the one on the left is INCREDABLE and i would buy it this second if sideshow decided to produce one HINT HINT
Image

night 2: boosh bash 09! the mighty boosh live in their 2nd US apearence....
THE ENTIRE reasion i went to con this year
outside wasting i spotted the crack fox:
Image

bioshock 2 had an awesome display with tons of cool rapture items.... like this rapture records 8" you could actuatly play
Image

at comic con even the bathroom graph is geeky! please note i didnt write this... i just though it was funny.
Image

sat night: FREE kaiju big battle show.
giant monster cage match... what else do i need to say!
Image

the return of pedro plantain at kaiju big battle!
Image

an incredable zombie sketch of me... done by my good buddy johnathan wayshack
Image

my bootie: i spent under $250 this year... which is by FAR the least ive ever spent at con!
Image

last day at con... i dont think i look to bad after 4 days living in my car.... but man do i smell!
Image

Thanks for sharing! \:D/

I loved your story line and the pics. So... who won in the "giant monster cage match?"

Your bootie is awesome :wink: lol. I see that you've gotten Gonzo and Sweetums! I am definitely aiming to get a Sweetums at some point. My favorite item that I have from the muppets would be the Swedish Chef Kitchen Deluxe Playset:

I also have the hand-painted Seaweed Muscamoot Lake Monster. That was supposed to be thier second release, but came out first... and the Fire on Water version was supposed to be their first release, but came out second :rolleyes: lol. I actually had someone 'mule' the fire on water version for me, so now I have both \:D/ (but not the tribute version... :doubt: but that's okay :) )

So... what was the picture on Zander Cruse's Master Cylinder pants? I can't quite make it out on this pic, nor on the Frisky Dingo show...
Was he the most interesting character/person you met at SDCC, or was there someone even more interesting? :-k

Yeah, sleeping in the car is awesome. I did it the past 2 years, this year got a camping spot. Wish I would of known you were doing the car thing I would of told you where to park and where the Denny's is with a large bathroom to change and take sink showers. Cops don't care, shoot there are homeless people laying down by the tracks right across from the convention. Saving money is awesome. :rock:

Thanks :lol: those pants are great!
Oh man, you got Sweetums for only $10?!?! That's a great deal, good for you =D> Hopefully when I'll go to SDCC next year, they'll have an extra Sweetums for $10 along with the lobster banditos Swedish Chef :wink: (I want those lobsters, lol)

I think when the guy in Brazil votes 100% yes, it's pretty safe to say that you can close the polls.

yah wayshack has been a great buddy ever since i found some of his art at a flee mkt. and tracked down the artist.
ive been bugging him for over 5 years now to draw me a zombie, and he totally came through!
defiantly one of the best artists i know.... and the most chronically under rated.
the crazy'st thing about johnathan is that he's such a nice normal guy. looking at his art youd' think he was some insane speed addict who just sat in his room obsessing over his art... but he's no where close.
