Comic-Con pictures - SDCC part 3

Here we go again.  More pictures from the Con.  Let's dive in. 

Jeff just started working the Tick booth.  No one seemed to mind. 

This guy had one of the strangest costumes there.  He also played up the "really weird dude" thing a lot. 

Another Marty McFly.  This guy really nailed the Part 2 costume.

So outside the convention hall, in front of the Hilton, they had Batmobiles.  Lots of Batmobiles.  All of them as a matter of fact.  From the Nolan movies, they had the Tumbler, and the Bane version.  They had all the other movie ones, and also a '66 Batmobile.  It was quite awesome.  I took a bunch of pictures. 

Jeff really wanted to create a Venture Brothers costume.  He wanted to do something unique that no one has ever done.  He chose Jet Boy and Jet Girl.  They were Henchmen 21 and 24 in their alternate henching homemade outfits.  The characters were in these outfits for a total of about five minutes in one episode.  Here is a still from the show.

We nailed it. 

I was leery about the costumes.  I didn't think anyone would know who we were.  But before we even had the costumes all the way on, someone ran up to and started reciting lines from the episode.  It was a huge success.  We ended up meeting the Venture Brothers creators a few times and they loved the costumes.  They said they never saw anyone else in these costumes.  Jeff was ecstatic.

It's Jet Boy and Jet Girl with Jackson Publick and Doc Hammer. 

There was a lot of Venture Brothers craziness going on.  This is our booth neighbor Angel wearing one of our masks. 

While in costume, we also met Matt Atchity, editor-in-chief of Rotten Tomatoes.  He ended up interviewing us for Comic-Con Radio on Sirius XM.  We got to spread the love for Teddy and the Yeti, Franks and Beans, and DukesCollector to the satellite radio world.  Thanks Matt. 

Today, I'll end with my awesome Saturday lunch.  First time I ever had fish tacos.  My greatest discovery of the Con was the taco truck behind the rear parking lot.  They even had Coke in glass bottles.  Way better than the cardboard pizza you could buy inside the convention center.  Looks like I have enough pictures for one more post.  I'll get them online soon.
