More Comic Con
One of the misperceptions of Comic Con to the outside world is that it is comic books. Only. What is it actually? Art. Imagination. Theatre. People walking around dressed in Superhero costumes, Cosplay outfits (love the fox ears and tails with kilts)and Loli dresses, steampunkers and sci-fi fans and freaks, all sorts of fans...as someone who loved Bladerunner, the X-files, twin peaks, Sleeper, now HAVEN (watch! on the SYFY channel, it's great!), Star Trek, Close Encounters, yetis and krakens and all sorts of nonsense, and yes there truly is a sea monster in Loch Ness as well as in Lake Champlain (I have stood on the decks of boats on both lakes and called to them :) It's a Scottish thing. So why not believe or at least play that you do? It's fun.
