Aquaman at the Baltimore Comic-Convention!


On Sunday, I (Rob) went to the Baltimore annual comic-convention while Tom stayed home and did stuff around the house (it's not his thing). So, I met our friend (also named Tom) and we shopped the convention floor getting good bargains on comic books, graphic novels, and figurines of superheroes (our friend collects them). After a quick sandwich, and Rob changed into his Aquaman outfit we were back for the 1pm costume contest. There were over 150 contestants!! It was a long process, so after I walked in front of the judges (2 1/2 hours later), my friend and I left. At that point I didn't care if I won anything- BUT, the entire couple of hours as Aquaman was awesome! I got my picture taken with a woman dressed as Hawkgirl; then with a couple dressed as "Batman Beyond" (from the future) and Batwoman; a muscle-bound trojan soldier; and Dr. Strange! It was fun. While waiting in line for the contest, I talked a lot to a guy dressed up as the Batman villian Two-Face, and 6 foot 5 guy in a Superman outfit.
When we left the convention, people on the street had called out "Aquaman!" and beeped their horns, too. Fun day!




Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
