Busted out this mash-up of Cyclops styles for LA Comic-Con and plan on using it again for the WeHo Halloween Block Party. Apologies for the poor photo quality.

These are the 3 looks I spotted at NYCC, though none will be my Halloween costume. Next on the docket is a Last Jedi Poe Dameron I’ve been working on for my personal Halloween party, and then I’m thinking about either Indy again or John McClain for my work Halloween party.

My son and I are IronDad and Spider-Lad. (Hopefully I got this picture to work). I built the Ironman armor from EVA foam and used the same with a PVC core to make the boy’s spider legs

This year I’m Wesley as Dread Pirate Roberts, wife is Princess Buttercup, and our 2 y/o is a RoUS....assuming we can wrangle him into the costume.

The Halloween Costume Contest returns! I can’t decide to suit up as Snake (MAN, that was awesome getting into the header image) again like last year, or try something different.

I feel its main story could’ve been done a bit better, but I loved the characters (even though Philly’s a big jerkface) and the sort of rule-of-cool world they inhabit is a really, well, cool one - would absolutely love it if they did lots of standalone episodes next season to have more fun with it.

You can change your Netflix settings so that it doesn’t autoplay the next episode. It’s in Playback Settings under Account — just uncheck the “Play next episode automatically” box.

If I’m ever part of a support group for geeks who lost all their money from geeking out too hard over the current geek golden age and someone stands up in front of the group and says, “Hello, my name is James,” I’ll be straightup expecting to hear this story next.

This is why I love the Multiverse; there’s a non-zero chance that when I die, I’ll actually end up going to the GFFA itself. Sure, I might wake up enslaved to a Hutt or Toydarian, but at least I’ll have a long career in galactic politics to look forward to — and best of all, no lines to get in!
