So...Many...Pictures...It's like 3 am and I'm still looking at the glorious galleries. You guys are awesome.

Poxpower Aug 12th, 2009 03:51 AM

I just gotta say... there's too many fat people dressed up in skintight costumes.

Which makes me think there might be good money in creating a superhero with a beer gut.

RUFIO! RUFIO!

The squished Hellboy toys are like the Transformers Robot Heroes toys.

All Hail Duke Aug 12th, 2009 06:13 AM

damn baby

puppetgeneral39 Aug 12th, 2009 06:25 AM

OH SHIT! A Cholly and Flytrap figure on page 12! Best...whatever the hell they weres ever!

Copper Aug 12th, 2009 07:35 AM

Gaaaah! Hate you!

Sorry, that's just the jealousy talking. Thanks for all the fantastic pics, folks! It's a blast seeing what's there and the comments really make some of them. By far, my favorite page was 23. So many favorite characters there! And I can agree on the Monarch costume. Only thing that would've made it better would've been wings, but I can imagine those would have been a bitch to get around with. Great seeing all the steampunk stuff, too. Have a couple friends that like it, so I'll have to share info on the pics.

Every time I read one of these things, it's "Someday, when I win the lottery..." Until then, this is the next best thing! Fab presentation, Rog!

the butt pictures should have their own gallery

Colonel Flagg Aug 12th, 2009 11:05 AM

Jesus this will take a LOOOOOONG time to page through. Looks awesome so far, though.

captain516 Aug 12th, 2009 01:14 PM

These galleries are pretty much the best damn advertisements for SDCC.

stevetothepast Aug 12th, 2009 03:57 PM

well shit. That was damn good coverage of the comic con. Any chance the left over shirts will make their way onto the store page? On a side note, what kind of nes to usb did you guys use at the booth? I've been looking for one, but don't want it to feel cheap.

Kat Aug 12th, 2009 07:04 PM

Holy CRAP.

Someone actually went as "The White Violin" from Umbrella Academy on page 8! I was planning to do that for halloween. Since I play violin and I'm a comic writer, I could think of no better costume than an outcast violinist that uses her music to kill.

Tell me, though: Was she only holding the violin or did she actually play?

Sweet baby Jesus and the orphans. That was a hell of an impressive collection of photos. I have been waiting for these for a while, seeing as I live in sunny old England, I won't be making my way over to the Comic Con anytime soon, but at least can see your awesome collection of pics RoG (and the rest of the guys).

PS I nearly wet myself laughing at the last picture of the Cobra Comander getting himself some munchies.

The Leader Aug 12th, 2009 08:52 PM

You called Jango Fett, Boba Fett in one description. I didn't bother checking which page it was, though, because I want to make you suffer knowing that you have failed as a Star Wars fan.

Also, the last picture was the best. He's dressed just like he was in the cartoon movie! AWESOME

Sam Aug 13th, 2009 02:02 AM

Was that really Buckethead? :(

the true star wars fan fails to acknowledge anything introduced after the initial trilogy of movies

Protoclown Aug 13th, 2009 11:13 AM

Good call, Willie. That was obviously just a really poor Boba Fett costume put together by someone who is color blind.

robo_rob Aug 13th, 2009 02:29 PM

I can just tell by the pictures that the entire place reeked of b.o.

Inflatable Animated Jazz costume? That's different.

Beardy Goodness Aug 13th, 2009 03:14 PM

By the way, the mini me at batman's feet is bat-mite, a sort of mr mxyptlk for batman.
I am ashamed that I know this.

Protoclown Aug 13th, 2009 03:45 PM

Eh, I know it too and I'm not ashamed. I suggested a new caption referencing Bat-Mite, but I think Roger just liked his original caption better.

My mistake. :tear

Mockery Aug 13th, 2009 08:29 PM

Thanks for all the compliments so far everybody! It took a hell of a long time to put all the photos together, and then myself, Proto & Boogie had to put captions under 'em. Glad you guys are enjoying all the coverage though... all we want to do is give you the next best thing to attending the event, so hopefully it worked!

I used a genuine NES controller combined with a retro usb cable hook up for it. Then I just mapped it to the keys for the game and it worked like a charm. Kudos to BoM for getting the game to work in fullscreen mode so everybody could enjoy it on the flatscreen TV!

As for whether or not the shirts will make their way onto the store page, as I stated in the article itself, EVERYTHING we sold at Comic-Con will be available for purchase on the site at some point in the near future. I just need to revamp the store a bit and figure out the shipping costs for things. But yeah, it'll all be available for purchase on I-Mockery soon.

T-Shirts, Posters, Pickle Hats, Comics, Stickers... the works!

You'd have to ask Proto or Max or whoever took that photo. I would venture to guess that she could play it though.

I'll say yes... but realistically speaking, anybody could but a KFC bucket on their head and call themselves Buckethead. Especially at Comic-Con.

Sadly, I was not there when that picture of the White Violin was taken, so I'd guess it was either Re or Scott who took that picture. Shame too, because I would have loved to see the costume myself (and discovered whether she played the violin)!

:edit
I can't wait to buy Proto's comic

And what better way to hide out at Comic-Con then NOT wearing a KFC bucket on your head when you are well known for it. :(
