Waldo's PAX 09 Adventures


Picture036-1.jpg

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!

    Huh. I'm sure many just assumed that you were Qs23 since that's kinda been his thing for the past several years I think.

    I was confused when I saw one waldo go by, then another a little bit after.

    I was driving some out-of-towner friends around, and I kept complaining about being blinded. They responded with "You see, where we come from, people tend to wear Sunglasses." I retorted with a simple "You people tend to have sun."

    I thought the Waldo thing was just a little played out.... Seen it done to many times already and also there was five different people playing Waldo that I found.

    Soon everyone will be dressed like waldo and you'll have to find Qs23 by his aftershave or something.

    Don't give the guy a hard time. He did something fun and he even put in his original post that he isn't Qs23. We aren't a bunch of elitist snobs around here, are we?

    Sorry dude. You looked cute and all but I agree.

    I guess that makes me a snob then.

    Ah, don't worry about it! Though I *do* think it would be awesome if next year you went as Odlaw instead:

    That could have a high potential to be epic =)

    So when did we make a rule where you can only have 1 cosplayer per character?

    I'm worried this Highlander attitude might limit the number of Harley Quinns at future cons. This must not be allowed to happen.
