(Disclaimer: I am not Qs23. My coming as Waldo was not announced on the forums as to make it a surprise for those who found me)
Waldo's PAX 09 Adventures
You might have seen me around the con this year, and while pulling off Waldo seems like an easy task, you have to be able to handle it. Make no mistake: it was a blast of fun, but if I had a dollar for every time someone called me out... Although if you happened to be standing nearby at time of call, you probably got a piece of candy from me. It takes a level head to be Waldo, but like him I always keep my cool in every situation.
I also was a buttoneer this year, and gave out the winking Pikachu buttons. Either I seriously underestimated how many buttoneers there would be, or my status as Waldo gathered buttoneers from all over. It was fun though, even though I ran out by Sunday. Next year will be better! I'll be sending messages to everyone I got buttons from, but not all of the buttons have usernames on them. So if you got one of my buttons be sure to drop me a line eh?
Lots of people wanted pictures of me, as besides being Waldo I was an item on the scavenger hunt. It sure makes you feel good when you can make so many people happy. Alot of people told me how their day was made by seeing me at the con, and making people happy is what I do best. Being Waldo is kind of like the gift that keeps on giving. "Dude! I've been looking everywhere for you man!"
I managed to get pictures with several other cosplayers, not to mention various pictures of me around the con and expo hall. There's a slideshow of photobucket if anyone is interested.Where's Waldo? At PAX09!
If you took a picture of me and want it added to the slideshow, drop me a message and I'll give you me email. Then you can mail it to me and I'll add it.
As of now I'm planning to go as Waldo again next year, and maybe by that time I'll have a Wizard Whitebeard along too.
Keep a steady eye Waldo watchers!

Sorry dude. You looked cute and all but I agree.
I guess that makes me a snob then.
