Photos: New York Comic Con 2009 - Friday

Friday was Geekanerds "lazy day" at Comic Con. No stress, no running from panel to panel...just a stroll around the floor, chatting up creators and PR people, trying to get free stuff, and watching a bunch of uncensored episodes of Shin Chan.

I did manage to take a few pics of some of the more extraordinary sights...

Like this for example!

The ladies of Valve! This is Zoey from Left 4 Dead and Chell from Portal, but of course you knew that. I suggested this pose, and I saw them using it again later on the floor. This is because I'm a director, and when not blogging, I help the world by directing it to be more funny and visually pleasing.

Sketches, booths, Leias, and the requistite Storm Trooper, after the jump...


Look up in that window...see that? A Stormtrooper. He was watching me. Probably thought I was a Jedi. A lot of people make that mistake.


This was the best promo booth I saw. It's for a Showtime Show about clones (the name escapes me) but they were giving people a chance to watch clips of the show on those movie-goggle things while standing in cool sci-fi tubes. There's no reason these people had to be in tubes - it's purely for visual effect of the passerby. Get it, they look like clones! Eh, maybe you had to be there.

Mario seems genuinely surprised to see that Hunter. I guess when you're used to dealing with like, evil mushrooms and turtles, killer zombies are a little above your paygrade. I was genuinely surprised not to see more Left 4 Dead cosplay...there was a general lack of interesting costumes over all...I'm hoping it will pick up tomorrow.

Nice booth, Squaresville! What was the New York Times doing at Comic Con in the first place? I think they just unpacked their table, looked around, and left at around noon.

I guess this sweatshirt is old news, but it was the first time I've ever seen it. Awesome. Awesome. Awesome. I know it's not cool to like Boba Fett ever since Lucas killed that Golden Goose of Coolness with overexposure. But honestly; this is cool. The sweatshirt is by Ecco and can be purchased online for a Ben, and I don't mean Kenobi. I have to say, the dude in the picture did a good job accesorizing it, I think it was a smart purchase. I love cosplay that doesn't replicate a costume, but creates a cool outfit BASED on a character, like this.

Hey, remember this panel from Cleaners #2? It was the recipient of the Banana Randomizer Award in Panel Dicussion a few weeks back. I had the opportunity to meet the creators of Cleaners, who were both super cool and happy to talk about their work with a nerd like me. They had a book of the original inked pages, so I took of picture of my favorite scene. Artist Rahsan Ekedal was even good enough to sign a copy of issue #1 for me with a little picture of a shark fin.

Free fortune cookies in the press room! And possibly a free book? Honestly I didn't even notice anything beyond the cookies.

Okay this photo is blown out, sorry. But still - two slave Leias! Eh? Ehh?

More to come tomorrow!

If the bride and groom managed to share a kiss over the stack, lace wigsit was supposed to symbolize a lifetime of prosperity. However, during the reign of King Charles II, a French chef paid a visit to London and he observed the cake piling ritual. The chef found this ritual inconvenient and he decided that he would use short lengths of broom sticks to separate the layers.wedding invitations The cakes had to be prepared in advance and due to the lack or refrigeration, they had to be frosted in lard to stop them from drying out. Before the wedding ceremony, the lard was scraped from the cake, however, cheap wedding dressesin later years to improve the taste of the lard, sugar was added and the lard was left on the cake as a form of decorative icing.

家具與室內設計是密不可分的。但一直以來,大部分國內顧客佈置新居的模式都是:先裝修好,再買家具。?這種落後方式的弊端是顯而易見的,最後顧客往往會為兩者在風格、尺寸配合上的不協調而頭疼不已,卻又無計可施。?新的模式將是:先選定家具再確定裝修方案,兩者密切配合、同步進行。?在新的模式下,顧客選購家具時,室內設計師的意見無疑將變得非常重要。
