Finally! Part 1 of a 4 part series featuring photos taken at Wizard World Chicago 2006. Many of these pictures are rather blurry. You can thank Bill and his amazing camera skills for that. You can also thank my wife for going out of town and snatching up our camera to take on the trip. At any rate, you can click any of the photos for the full sized version. Enjoy!
There were a lot more people in line at 9am than I expected there to be. The doors opened at 10am for guest who purchased their tickets at the gate, but at 9am for those who purchased in advance. I figured there would be quite a few people purchasing in advance, but didn’t think there would be several hundred taking advantage of the early entrance.
Here you can see Thor in the distance reading a comic book. If you squint you can see the girl next to him (to your left) with her hand on her face. I believe this was his wife or girlfriend. She was wearing some type of belated costume (a cheap mini-skirt, boots and a small cape) but she seemed very embarrassed by the whole thing (especially during Thor’s photo ops), as if she had lost a bet.
This skating area was set up to promote the new Tony Hawk video game. They were giving away $20 to any costumed character who successfully skated. Thor gave it a try and nearly broke the skateboard. His girlfriend also gave it a try… she didn’t seem embarrassed by the whole thing any more and was letting loose a little.
That’s all for now, check back soon for Part 2 of this 4 part series!
I said some fairly rude things in this and the other Wizard World picture posts. For that I apologize to any who were offended. It was meant to be in good fun, but translated over the internet to hate. I have removed the commentary in question to make for a more enjoyable experience.
