I had the time of my life on Saturday. In case you have not heard due to being new to our world or living under a rock, The Saturday of May has been officially called "Free Comic Book Day" and it is like a nation wide convention, without the hotel fees. This is my 4th or 5th FCBD and for the sake of my comic store I dressed up as Spider-man, and the kids loved me. I would run down the line giving everyone high fives to everyone in line. There were some kids that I scared a little at first, so when I got a high five from them, I would get excited and they would smile and be so happy.
I would high five people driving by comic book store which was something I was unable to do last year. There was one time I ran up to an SUV and jumped next to them yelling "SELFIE!!!" and scared the teeange girl in the passenger seat. I go back and Wonder Woman had fallen to the ground laughing her head off.
There was also Spider-Gwen there and she looked awesome. When you saw her, you could tell that a lot of work was put into her outfit. However....when she spoke....it was obvious that 'she' was actually a 'he' under all the padding. XD There were a lot of confused faces.
There was music, there was a frozen ice stand, and so many cosplays that were awesome. I think the best moment was part of the day was when Star Lord, The Queen Fairy and I (Spider-man) Started dancing to the 'Bird is the Word.' The people in line roared in laughter and were getting into it. After the dance one of the comic store workers, that knows me, walks up and says, 'You have just made Books Galore History. He recorded the whole dance and will no doubt have it playing at the store, maybe even post it on Youtube. XD
Needless to say, my body is soar, my throat is soar, and there are tiny moments in my mind where I say, "That was really stupid." However the rest of my mind takes over and says with a smile, "Totally worth it."
So what did you guy do for Free Comic Book Day? Please tell me you all had as much fun as I did! XD
