So I’ve bought the train tickets and committed to go to “Comic Con without Comic Con” this Saturday. (It’s rather like “Garfield without Garfield,” but less existential.)
The Surfliner isn’t particularly cheap, but the hassle of traffic and what is sure to be $20 ($30?) parking anywhere near the convention center makes the train the logical choice. And having to walk from the train to the Con means comfy shoes and casual clothes, since I am just not one of those people willing to suffer for their cosplay.
Hence: Pizza Dog Shirt. I figure this choice would be obscure enough to represent one of my fave comics while letting me figure out who is “in on the joke.” I used freezer paper for the stencil (Google it - it is magic!) and I’m really pleased with how the shirt turned out. It looked a little plain, so I added the Hawkeye badge in the corner to make it “zazzy.”
