My first encounter with anything close to a Sci Fi Convention was when I worked at a movie theater and we were doing a Star Trek marathon of the first four movies back to back. People were dressed as Klingons, as Kirk, as spock and as other random characters. However the one that made me actually laugh out loud was the 4 foot 10 inch woman dressed like a tribble.
Now with Avatar taking the world by storm will it also take over Comic-Con and other Sci Fi conventions? I am foreseeing alot of blue body paint being sold this year and some of the models won’t be so pretty.

a 4 ft tribble, that’s funny! i’m not a sci-fi fan but that tribble reminds me of cousin It from the addams family. i always wanted a cousin It. 🙂 then i got rip!
Rip is almost as hairy as IT.
Aww come-on, Bearman – I’m gonna’ exercise before the convention (that blue paint is kinda’ hard to get off my wii fit, though)! 🙂
First you have to get OFF the wii fit.
I do FALL OFF rather frequently! 🙂
And the Avatar folk are nine footers. I can see a problem with head-hunting in the doorways.
Ever been to a midnight showing of the Rocky Horror Picture Show? Went to one way back in Los Angeles. The costumers were out in force. Outstanding time.
I am surprised no one has done a sci fi musical.
Why don’t you write one Bear? Maybe Star Nerds.. The Musical. You could make it a science fiction, musical comedy.
How about Space Balls the musical. I mean Mel Brooks did it with the producers and Young Frankenstein. Why not this one.
YES!!! I propose a contest, with the point being to come up with the best sci-fi musical. I propose “Bach’s ninth plan form outer space.”
that is frikkin hilarious!!! i love it
Thanks Thomas. Thanks for stopping by.
I THINK I WOULD BEEN CRYING BECAUSE OF LAUGHING SO HARD!
Just wait till the pics from Comic-con come back.
HAHAHAHA!! That’s great! It’s always a surprise that you don’t see more ‘Battlefield Earth’ characters at those things… 😛
Well maybe they would if Travolta got to be Keynote speaker.
and pray tell why wasn’t this cartoon done in 3D? Here’s hoping there is a shortage of blue face paint!
It was done in 3D. Put on your special 3D glasses and you will see the 1000 extras that I drew in the background.
Oh yeah, now I see them….thanks
those poor poor middle aged men…
You’ll be one of those guys soon enough. Middle aged I mean.
Ha! Funny Material. Cannot remember if I posted here yet. I know I’ve read the cartoons before. The Cold Blooded Killer if I remember correct is freaking hilarious, as is The Print Cartoonists vs. Web Cartoonists. Thanks for dropping in on my little cartoon universe, I really appreciate it.
MJ…no problem. I kept seeing you everywhere so I had to check out your stuff too. Thanks for stopping by.
HA! I think the sci fi conventions are gonna get a lot stranger (if that’s possible — and I looove sci fi cons) with all the naked blue folks. But is it really that different than dressing up as a green half naked person?
Oh, the tribble person I HAVE to see. Any pictures? 🙂
Yes b/c women don’t tend to dress like the Hulk.
No unfortunately that was a time before cell phone cameras.
They should become Scientologists…those guys accept anybody!
I thought you had to be famous.
I would like to go to a Sci-Fi convention dressed up as a Sesame Street character and really throw everyone off.
That would be funny. Make sure to video tape it. You would be the next YouTube sensation.
Once you go blue, you can never go back!
…or something like that….
That dye is so hard to wash off.
I wanted to go to this year’s Comic-Con, but while waiting for my best friend to make up his mind, it got sold out. There are still tickets available for Thursday and Sunday, but of course I wanted Wednesday (preview night) through Sunday. Maybe next year. 🙁 And no, I wasn’t going to dress up as anything, my geekness has limits, sometimes. Ok, maybe I was going to dress as Malcolm Reynolds from Firefly. Maybe.
Your geekness is so high that I don’t know who you are talking about from Firefly..haha
As a pink middle aged male it is my opinion that there are some fecking edgiots like me, everywhere!!
Sure that pink isn’t caused by salmonella?
Salmonell sh8te is traffic light colours; red, yellow and green!
My prediction is lots of comic-book-guy types in full body paint, looking for swimsuit-model type females in full body paint. Sadly, the ratio will be about 150:1. With the 1 being a cardboard cutout at the Avatar booth.
No…they always hire those 20 somethings to hock crap to the horny masses.
Did Kent and Dave ever fit in??
Well when everyone was wearing Star Trek and STar Wars…now???
I haven’t seen the movie yet, but I suspect you’re gonna be right about the majority of Avatar fans inundating the conventions this year.
I think I am going to finally break down and see it this weekend. All I know is that it better not be the let down thatTitanic was
lol….this takes the cake
i guess the good thing about conventions is that unattractive people and geeks can dress up wear masks and costumes of even uglier weirder looking ppl and creatures and others think its cool, even satisfy weird fetishes that way.. i guess they serve a purpose lol
So what are you going to wear this year..ha ha j/k
i might go with the classic look…. Chewy… haha
I like stuff like this. It gives me great comfort to know that there are a few people out there who are a lot weirder than I am.
Just a few??
Probably very few.
I can’t wait to paint myself blue and show up naked at the next convention.
Thanks for the idea.
This is awesome. No one will know it’s me, and I’ll be naked!
Did those Avatar guys wear loinclothes?
No…just strategically placed beads.
Not being a sci-fi nerd myself but I think James T Kirk could kick an avatars butt on any day!!
But could Picard beat Kirk???
