C has been a comic book fan for years so we decided to check out a comic convention in our area. We went to one in Lexington, KY, a couple of months ago and enjoyed it, but it was so crowded that it was almost overwhelming.
Louisville, KY hosted its own Derby City Comicon on June 29th, so we went to check it out. It didn’t seem to be nearly as big or well attended as the one in Lexington, but it was still fun. I am not that knowledgeable about the characters that were popular. I was always an Archie comics fan myself and you just don’t see much of that anymore. Hmmm, I am getting old!
It was a beautiful day to get out and do something so we were both glad that we took the time to go. It is fun to people watch and see the different costumes that people come up with. Here are a few of my favorite from that day:
Girlified Iron Man, Loki & Captain America from The Avengers:
A Steampunk Wonder Woman costume: (I loved this one! If you are wondering what “steampunk” is…it is a style combination of Victorian and industrial items. Kinda weird, but way cool! Go here for more steampunk inspiration.)
A mini Darth Vader:
One of the Mario Brothers:
A mini (& injured) Green Lantern with his Bat Girl mom:
Joker & Harley Quinn from Batman:
The Riddler from Batman:
