Like any comic-con, there were lots of great cosplayers in attendance. We saw a bunch of superheroes, Star Wars villains and Lord Of The Rings characters. I figure "when in Rome", so I decided to get into the act and dress as a certain "round-headed kid.":
While walking around the Con, "Chuck" attracted attention wherever he went. I was stopped by quite a few people who wanted to get their picture taken with Charlie Brown, including:
"Wash" from the series Firefly tv series:
And Gamorra, daughter of Thanos and a Guardian of the Galaxy!:
I'll be honest, after donning the bald wig & yellow shirt, I was a little nervous about how "Chuck" would be received. Would Charlie Brown be appreciated by hundreds of people dressed as Asgardian gods, zombies and Dothraki? The answer was a resounding YES! Everywhere I went, people yelled out "Hey, it's Charlie Brown!!" and sent smiles in my direction. Which is a very good sign, with 2015 being Chuck's 65th anniversary and a new Peanuts movie in the works.
And I was happy to see that I was not the only one dressed up as a "old school" comic strip character:
|"Dick Tracy" and "Charlie Brown", together again for the first time!|
I don't think Lucy would pull the football away from this guy:
