So tomorrow is Batman’s 75th anniversary. We usually pick up our comics every Wednesday and when I knew about the 75th I thought, huh, it might be fun to just turn up in costume. I mean the 75th is a big deal and I think turning up as Batman would be pretty neat.
Well last week when picking up comics, my local store asked me if I’d be willing to be at the store for a few hours in costume. I guess it kind of blew my mind that I was asked. I was willing to go, but to have them ask me if I would be in store as Batman. I think it made me feel like that hey, I kind of make a pretty decent Batman. Yes I’m overweight and there are a bunch of things I want to improve on my costume, but in the end I still make a pretty good Batman.
So yeah, that’s what I’m doing tomorrow. Hanging around in a comic store dressed as Batman. Isn’t this like a geek dream?

I have no words, but when the photographer requested that I pose in front of this background, I couldn’t say no.

I’m really happy with the upgrade of my cowl. I know last year I felt a minor irk with all my pictures because of it. Now my ire is drawn towards my cape which is not as bad but something I definitely want to improve next time (improving my weight is a bloody given!).
Didn’t take too many photos as I always seem to do. It’s not too easy to take good photos in full costume so I usually avoid it until I’m out of it.
Genuine squee moment seeing the Lina Inverse though.
I think this has to be my favourite photo of the weekend.

I am representing America here via satellite, live via satellite, I want to say DOTA is not a real video game and you can take it back to your weird curries and take aways and take your lorry to your lift up to your flat. USA motherfucker.
So I guess I’m really nervous about next week. The last time I wore my costume in a place with lots of people was ConnectiCon last year. I had hoped to have lost more weight but haven’t been too successful. I think it’s why I’ve been excessively exercising all last week to try and help. I’m also nervous cause I’m doing the Deathmatch this year and I just hope I don’t make a fool of myself.
Anyway. This is my costume for ConnectiCon 2014. Same as last year really but I have the new Reevz cowl.
