Baltimore Comic-Con Part 2: Female Bat-Family and Snow White

Aquaman and Snow White
I (Rob) made my annual journey to the Baltimore Comic-Con  as Aquaman and ran into a Bat-family of women and Snow White!

SNOW WHITE- As we were walking the Comic-con we ran into Snow White!   
DID YOU KNOW? "Snow White" is a German fairy tale known across much of Europe and is today one of the most famous fairy tales worldwide. The Brothers Grimm published it in 1812 in the first edition of their collection Grimms' Fairy Tales
The Grimms completed their final revision of the story in 1854. The fairy tale features such elements as the magic mirror, the poisoned apple, the glass coffin, and the characters of the evil queen/stepmother and the seven dwarfs. The seven dwarfs were first given individual names in the Broadway play Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1912) and then given different names in Walt Disney's 1937 film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. 

THE BATFAMILY- There are a lot of characters associated with Batman, and one group of young girls decided that they would become many of them (even if the
Batgirl, Harley Quinn, Riddler, Joker, Nightwing

roles are really males). So, I ran into "Batgirl,"Harley Quinn," "The Riddler," The Joker," and Nightwing."
  All of those characters are well known with the exception of Harley Quinn and Nightwing. 
WHO IS  HARLEY QUINN - Former psychiatrist Harleen Quinzel who counseled the Joker, and she went made. She became a super-villain, carrying gag-themed weaponry, and murdering countless civilians—all just to put a smile on the Joker's face (with whom she fell in love).
WHO IS NIGHTWING? - Nightwing is the former Robin, Dick Grayson, all grown up and in a new costume and identity. 


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.
