A few weeks ago, a group of us took a foreign exchange student to Emerald City ComiCon (ECCC)—allowing us to cross it off our bucket list.
Seeing ComiCon through the eyes of a 15-year-old exchange student raised the event to another level.
My younger sibling, also a SciFi fan attended as a Dalek from Doctor Who. I’m the one in the orange wearing The Blerch shirt. Over the course of the day she posed for over 70 photos with Doctor Who fans. Small children followed behind her chanting in mechanized tones, “Ex-term-i-nate.”
I’ve only viewed a couple episodes of the Doctor, making it much more amusing for me.
The event staff wandered around the convention center with shirts saying “Minion”. One of the Minions presented my sister, the Dalek, with a Super Fan award for her costume. She was psyched.
A good costume is a terrible thing to waste.
Two weeks later, while still basking in the memories of our recent Comicon adventure, we celebrated Quiz night dressed in our costumes.
Even the Twinkies came dressed as “Minions,” and the water bottles wore capes.
I’m not sure how many of the “Minions” survived the evening . . .
