Coming Up in April - Pittsburgh Comic Con

The Pittsburgh Comic Con (not in the Pitt for some reason) is April 23-25 this spring. It is a fun medium-size show. I does fall into that hybrid category though of "entertainment expo" more than "comic con" since there are always a fair share of horror B-movie celebs from the 70s, wrestlers and toy dealers. However, when it does come to comics, a show like this is good because lines are generally not long for the creators (rare exceptions of course like when they have to sell tickets for someone special attending).

This time around the Costume Contest is on Sunday. It will be broken down into 3 age groups (kids, teens, adults). Coming to the show in costume on Sunday gets you into the show for free. The categories with costume contests are always a bit "grey" since there are plenty of crossovers; i.e., Marvel not only has comics but cartoons also, etc.

  • Comic books
  • Cartoons
  • TV/Movie
  • Literature
  • Original Concept
  • Other

Since Joe Sinnott will be there, I will definitely spend some time in my Fantastic 4 suit. Otherwise, don't forget to come visit me at the Guns of Shadow Valley booth with artist/writer Dave Wachter.

Hullo. I saw your Rogue costume and loved it. A bunch of m friends decided to dress up as out favorite Marvel characters this year.. and I chose Rogue. This is probably weird to ask, but I don't have the time or money to make an outfit right now.. but, would be willing to sell the outfit? if not, how about I offer to pay you to make one? I don't know, I can't really find what I'm looking for. I still love the outfit. My Name is Shanna Shaw and my email is IrisX65@hotmail.com. You can also find me on Youtube, my name is IrisX65.
