ON THE LOOSE AT WIZARD WORLD PHILLY CON 2011-Day 3: A SHORT MORNING

And so Sunday morning rolled around and I had to return to NYC, while Amber and Ashley continued to represent in costume in the name of geekery for one more day. I was packed and ready to check out early, so I amused myself by snapping shots of Amber gearing up as Firestar from the old SPIDER-MAN AND HIS AMAZING FRIENDS cartoon show, and also of Ashley in her badassed Black Canary duds.

Beneath her cool superhero boots, Firestar rocks moose sox.


(Please forgive your humble narrator and photographer as he indulges himself.)

Amber as Firestar, with mask and "fiery" contact lenses.



Ashley, cutting a dashing figure as the Black Canary.


A textbook demonstration of the use of props to disguise "the toe."

Outside the hotel and getting ready to head back to the con. As we walked, we passed an old black man sitting on a bench, enjoying the lovely morning and checking out the girls' butts. As we walked by I greeted him with "Good morning, Mr. Roundtree" and the girls had no idea who he was. That's when I told them we had just walked past none other than Shaft himself.

THE END. (For now...)

Did either of the girls at least ask, "who's the cat who won't cop out when there's danger all about?"

Roundtree is one of the all-time greats.
