a cloudy day in Metropolis

Sadly, many of our best beloved residents seemed not quite up to the challenge of Comic Book Night at the Kokopelli Stage, in Steelhead. Fortunately for us, we had quite the collection of intriguing concepts anyway.

I, of course, defaulted to an outfit I'd last worn last October, that of Morrigan Aensland, and apparently caused some small distraction.

It's the wings.

Mr. Fawkes Allen was perfectly in character as Nny from Johnny the Homicidal Maniac--to the point that people thought he was craaazy.

Heh. Nice touch with Nailbunny. (Sorry, that's an in joke...)

Miss Christine came as Poison Ivy, which just made sense, really--considering her signature color is green, after all. And all that red hair...

Tensai Hilra, evil genius and resident Warrior Goddess of Steelhead, decided to take an hour of her time and create Master Shake for the dance.

Wau. And funny.

Mr. Ranulph Graves decided to come as Spider Jerusalem from Transmetropolitan.

Okay, my favorite Spider Jerusalem quote:

So this Zealot comes to my door, all glazed eyes and clean reproductive organs, asking me if I ever think about God.

So I tell him I killed God. I tracked God down like a rabid dog, hacked off his legs with a hedge trimmer, raped him with a corncob, and boiled off his corpse in an acid bath.

So he pulls an alternating-current taser on me and tells me that only the Official Serbian Church of Tesla can save my polyphase intrinsic electric field, known to non-engineers as "the soul."

So I hit him. What would you do?


My second favorite quote:

There's one hole in every revolution, large or small. And it's one word long--people.

No matter how big the idea is they all stand under, people are small and weak and cheap and frightened.

It's people that kill every revolution.


Okay, I'll stop.

Miss Lumina did an exquisite job as Death from the Vertigo series Sandman. Ankh, lovely eye spiral, and all. She won for best female, by the way. (Mr. Allen won for best male).

Our Sheriff, Fuzzball Ortega, also does an amazing job on Fridays DJing for the dances. Tonight was no exception, and tonight he came as the Green Lantern. His version? Apparently has no problem with gold...heh.

I don't believe there's a comic book surrounding Miss Qlippothic's choice of costume...

...but perhaps Captain Caledon should consider getting one!

Hee. Down to the traditional Caledon tartan as a skirt...

Mr. TotalLunar Eclipse came, unsurprisingly enough, as Sesshomaru from the series InuYasha. Incredible level of detail.

And finally...

Miss Dagger broadened the definition of "comic book" to include favorite personal heroes, and came as Miss Tensai Hilra.

This is a joke you only get if you know the Warrior Goddess. :)

And...that's it, I'm off to the art show! I haven't seen a single shot from the Glamour Cats show (upstairs, at the King Has Fallen Gallery, in Sonata), and only seen a few pieces from Volatiles (the show downstairs). I'm dying to see them!

A Green Lantern needs to feel fear and overcome the fear, and the yellow is no longer a problem.

Well, then.

Good for you. :)
