For Father’s Day, Jeff’s gift was tickets to Wizard World ComicCon in Chicago. Today was the big day! We started out the morning meeting and getting a family photo with the legendary Stan Lee (photo to come) who gave his hearty endorsement for the outfits I made the entire family and told me, “Well done!” and gave me the thumbs up. The rest of the day we spent exploring and people watching. The boys loved seeing all the costumes, though it was a tad over-stimulating so by mid-day there were meltdowns. We left early-afternoon and stopped off for a delicious lunch at a nearby Mexican restaurant before heading home and all crashing out. Exhausting but awesome day.
Joshua was thrilled to have spied Miss Frizzle in the crowd, and I think she was a little smitten with him. (and impressed he knew who she was.)
Of course we had to check out the video game area.
And loved seeing some of the awesome costumes. This guy’s Ghostbuster outfit was incredible.
Justin also wanted to see Miss Frizzle.
So many lightsabers. Supposedly combat-ready. Like we need that in our house.
We saw some Power Rangers doing a conga line.
This guy’s Ironman suit had an automated mask that opened and closed. Very cool.
We spied Lou Ferigno near the signing area.
This kid hitched a ride for a while.
Hawkeye was one of the boy’s favorite outfits they saw.
Joshua got picked up and hugged by this Hulk. Which he later announced that, “It’s just a Human inside of it.”
And these ladies we saw as we left. For some reason, they were too intimidating for the boys to pose with, despite being early accosted by a Hulk…
