Yes that’s totally me and UC77.
Secretly what’s happening here is I was pointing at him with my thumb up, and this doofus just sorta leans down and picks up his sharpie and starts to slip it into my grip right before the picture that wasn’t blurry got shot.
The person taking the photo is the lovely Gabby who managed to take these photos for me too. XD
Anywho so I actually ran into UC before I realized who he was right after I’d gotten the priority autograph voucher and was waiting for the Dealer halls to open. I watched ‘some random Batman cosplayer’ wander by me while joking to his buddies that he couldn’t smile because his parents were dead.
Given Deadpool’s background I
politely haughtily chipped in that he was totally wrong. I quickly corrected myself by adding that maybe you just needed to have your lover try to kill you and more relatives die before you were able to smile, but you know, no big deal. XD
He was happy to put a smile on my mask with his fingers while I was showing off, retorting that at least he was a hero.
I quickly challenged him, asking if he was implying I wasn’t a hero.
He conceded anti-hero, and I wandered off quipping I’d stopped listening after I’d heard the word hero.
When I went to go find UC77 in the dealer hall, to shake his hand and let him know I’m a fan of his work, I didn’t recognize him until he pulled out the batman mask!
Later I dropped in to get a picture to make the folks on Tumblr jealous because he’s totally famous, I ran into Gabby who dropped by his booth to take a breather before heading back out into the ‘fray’ once more.
Awesome people and I’m glad I got to run into you guys at the con and get some awesome memories and pictures XD
