I'm back! And reading! And maybe even blogging! No promises!

1st Day At the Con

Cons are neat. We wandered around, saw booths, bought stuff. (I have a Guy Gardner doll!)

We did get to go to the DC Nation panel, that was fun. Some teases and "accidental" slips from the panelists. (I used quotes because I'm a cynic. :-P) Still it was interesting.

I ended up skipping the Marvel panel to go see John Cassaday and get him to sign my copy of Fallen Son #5. Specifically on Captain America's chest. He seemed a bit bemused by the request, but did it. So I have a signed Captain America chest. Between that and the Guy doll, my trip's been made worth it.

(By the way, John Cassaday is kinda hot. By "kinda", I mean really really hot. Eeek.)

My roommate got a picture taken with Richard Hatch. That was pretty cool.

As it turns out, helping one's blogging partner put together her green lantern costume ("helping" is read "watching and making peanut gallery type commentary while whining annoyingly about having a head cold" in my case. But still...) leads to strange conversation topics about Green Lanterns and lipstick.

We've apparently decided that Kyle would wear cute pink, John's color is eggplant, Guy's a gloss-man, and Hal's would be slutty candy-apple red.

...Yeah. We're kind of weird. Fortunately we got distracted before we started talking mascara or eye-shadow. Tonight is safe.

    Pink? Kyle? Oh, no. That would never suit his complexion. Not to mention pinks aren’t exactly in season. If we stick exclusively with the original “black Irish” thing he has going on an intense red with just a hint of blue would be stunning (and teeth whitening). If we take the Hispanic heritage into account a swift more to rich and deep nudes and wines would suite him. And red is far too overpowering for Hal. Wine tones for him.

    However, Guy and gloss…perfect. Especially if its flavored. He strikes me as the orange type…maybe it’s the hair.

    Hey that was fun! Thanks.

    Actually, Anonymous is probably right about the lipstick colors. You have to take their respective skin tones and hair color into the mix.

    So yes, candy-apple red would probably be the wrong color for Hal. On the other hand, Hal is pretty much a floozy, so he's wear it ANYWAY. And nail polish to match.

    But the eggplant would look stunning on John. Gloss is just fine for Guy, he's a redhead, so he has that going for him already. And Kyle is so cute, he'd look good in just about anything.

    Too bad Kilowog doesn't have lips.

    What about Alan?

    Alan would wear J. Edgar Hoover Salmon.

    And has been for years.

    How true, Derek. How true.
