Last weekend was one of the best ever. Mumbai had a Film and Comics convention. There were a lot of wackily dressed up people, having fun, taking pictures and to top it off, there was a Cosplay contest too!
Sheehan, Patrick and myself decided to go too.. I mean how could we miss this? They went both days, but I went only on day 2 - Sunday, as I was working the previous day..
So here's what we went as..
Sheehan was the Joker from The Dark Knight
Patrick was the robot from the LMFAO videos
I was cat-woman from.. I haven't really decided where.. But definitely not The Dark Knight Rises (cuz I felt she was lame)
Here are some pictures!
Funny thing was, when we entered, people was just so taken aback. Every one wanted a picture with the female Joker, also every one wanted a picture with the robot and of course, every guy wanted a picture with Cat Woman!
Every step we took, we heard 'excuse me, picture please!'.. It was exciting and also annoying, but some organizers noticed how 'in demand' we were, and we were promptly invited to the after party!
There was a tiny board next to this that said 'Tweet your picture with Gandalf and win official Dark Knight Rises merchandise' and I did soo.. And just as I was about to publish this blog post, Warner Bros India tweeted to send in my details.. So I guess I'm one of the winners! 'Whoo hoo!!'
Many people told Sheehan she was the best Joker ever.. One guy even tweeted to me saying 'Your sister is my second favoritest joker ever, after Heath Ledger' Awww..
We also met a whole lot of other Batman freaks.. From l-r - The Scarecrow, The Joker, Two Face, Cat-Woman and The Joker
There were 2 other Cat Womans too.. But I thought my hand crafted lace mask was way better.. :-P
And of course there was Jiah Khan who came on the first day.. Who I didn't get to see.. I loved her costume, except for the belt and the shoes (from a fashion point of view)
And not to sound like a show off, but this one guy commented on a picture of me on the Comic Con page on facebook saying 'She was most beautiful catwoman in Comic Con' *BLUSHES*
This guy was hilarious! So brilliant and original.. Alan from the Hangover series!
These zombies were just too good!!
My favorite pictures of Sheehan ---
The first one
She threw that card 10-20 times, just to get this shot! It was hilarious, and could have been photoshopped, but we wanted something legit.
Where we tried to recreate this one..
But it was tough doing it in a moving taxi and of course, we did keep getting weird looks from fellow Mumbaikars!
P.S we were on our way to Tryst, to the after party..
And after getting there, We realised that Sheehan and Patrick had a lot of competition!!
This was the Comic Con after party and the Kingfisher Beer Up all rolled into one crazy big party!
And I met my long lost school friend there, who was dressed up as Dexter!
Free beers, so we made the most of it!
The rest are just too much to share.. Sheehan and me had our drunk faces on.. Patrick took off his head (he really couldn't see that well with the box on)
Now I'm just waiting for Comic Con to come back, and this time, I've vowed to spend more than half an hour on my costume!
Most pictures taken from the Canon Rebel XT either by Sheehan, me or Patrick, the low res ones from the iTouch and the ones with the watermark from the Comic Con page!
