BygJuce @ Philly Comic Con ’13!

Comic Con

Hey, Internet!  For anyone who follows me on Twitter (@BygJuce), you’d know that I went to Philadelphia this past weekend to kick its manliness up to 11!  I had a hell of a good time despite my kids falling asleep and forcing me to carry them (50 lbs. gets real freaking heavy after an hour).  I met a lot of cool artists, fellow geeks, and gorgeous celebrities, including Stan Lee, Lou Ferrigno, William “”The Shat” Shatner, and the entire cast of Firefly – minus Nathan Fillion who was scheduled but canceled because of other obligations.

Though the cool merchandise and the star appeal is great, I really go to these conventions for one thing: Cosplayers!  I don’t cosplay myself because by wife would divorce me out of embarrassment, but I do appreciate me some good cosplayers when I see ’em.  So I’d like to share my favorite pastime: Photographing my favorite heroes and villains doing mundane things!  Yay!

If viewing this didn’t make you poop with laughter, you’re either too young or don’t have a soul.


Lastly, I’d like to present “BygJuce’s Greatest Costume” Award!  And this prestigious and coveted honor goes to…

The Red Jaguars!


Congratulations to the Red Jaguars who not only had the funniest and therefore best costume, but also for showing dedication by epically failing at piecing the Shrine of the Silver Monkey together so miserably that I got frustrated and started yelling at them.  Ah, just like old times!

There you go!  I hope you got a few laughs out of this.  If you guys have any good stories about any conventions you’ve been to, make sure to leave them in the comments below.  Also, if you’re not following me on Twitter yet, fix that immediately!  Just find @BygJuce and click that follow button.
