2018 Comic Con Posted July 24, 2018 by Girl With Chalk I had a great time exhibiting at this year’s Comic-Con in San Diego. Wakanda Forever! These costumes were awesome. My table partner this year was Cartoon Flophouse’s Michael Aushenker. We are kind of goofing off in this picture. With our visitor, Frederick Luis Aldama who is a Professor of English and Distinguished Scholar at The Ohio State University. He teaches courses on Latinx & Latin American culture including literature, film, TV, music, sports, video games, and comic books. He is the author and editor of thirty-four books, including the Eisner Award-winning “Latinx Superheroes in Mainstream Comics.” Of course, this photo was taken approximately 8 or so hours before winning his Eisner Award at the 2018 Comic-Con! Congratulations Profe, we are so proud of you! The Korean ice cream that I picked up at SomiSomi, San Diego. It’s black sesame & taro swirl with happy toppings. The waffle cone is shaped like a goldfish! The Grady twins were one of my favorite costumes. Just for fun, the Tightrope Girl from Disney’s Haunted Mansion. Black Heroes Matter, the Pink Panther! The highlight of the convention for me was meeting Eric Singer and Tommy Thayer. (Eric Singer though!) Before leaving San Diego, I had to stop at the Boba Bar for a fruit “puffle” made with a delicious waffle, pineapple ice cream, fresh fruit and drizzled with honey. The perfect ending to the perfect day.
