Sally Forth Comic Con: Devourer of Worlds, Devourer of Rats

Posted in Uncategorized by cesco7 on July 6, 2018

Today’s background cosplayers include Wonder Woman, Rogue, and Valerie from Josie and the Pussycats along with Nona donning Galactus (“Devourer of Worlds” headgear), Ted with his Battle of the Planets t-shirt, Hilary and Duncan as Maka and Soul Evans from Soul Eater and, of course, Sally as Starlee from Starlee and the Moonbeams.

But today also features some offscreen costuming, inspired by the below cosplay I saw at San Diego Comic Con 2016, in which the individual noted that yes, it was a very specific age demographic that got she was going as the “Diana eats the rodent” scene from the original V: The Miniseries (1983)

Of course, the problem with revisiting the past is that it never matches your memory. Or in this case, it reminds you of the limits of early 80s TV special effects when it comes to unhinging a jaw.

    One of the more entertaining things you see at a con is the mashing together of worlds that should never happen. One time at Wizard World they had an area cordoned off for ‘fighting’ demonstrations, and there was a Jedi engaged in a lightsaber duel with one of the Visitors from V, a sight that made slightly less sense than Doc Brown’s time machine parked next to the Hazzard County Sherriff’s car.
