    Yelling at qs23 while he was Waldo-ified was one of my secret joys at PAX

    "Damn Waldo your mean!"

    I didn't even realize Waldo was qs23, I saw him a few times but never got his button because of that... oh well.

    Anyway, I have yet to find myself or anybody in my crew in any media pictures, but I was dead center, staring at the camera in a picture that Arenanet took in the expo hall last year, which was awesome. But that was last year...

    Yeah I saw some of Anet's pics, but never recognized anybody. It doesn't surprise me though, I didn't spend near as much time in the expo hall as I had planned. However I was in their "3 years of Guild Wars" panel, in the back-right, so if I enlarged one or two of their pics I might be able to spot myself, but never took the time to look.

    On a side note, G4 posted a couple cool videos, one of which shows a bunch of random things and people, maybe somebody will recognize somebody there? Check them out, they're pretty cool

    Zephyr gets a brief spot in this vid as well, an both he and Whytmage can be seen in-costume right at the end. You can also see BA in one or two of the Omegathon shots, hidden in the background.

    That's all I recognize this early in the morning.

    I'm dead center at the bottom. Around 17 seconds in you can see the top half of my face :P

    The metaness of there being a Waldo among all the throngs of people makes it such an awesome costume and probably why it's popular with the media. :) Good work.

    I saw Waldo (Qs23) all over the place. Great costume! Is it just me though, or would it have been a lot more fun had about 12 other people dressed similarly to him, but not quite in the full getup?

    Those were always the hardest Where's Waldo pictures to get! The guy who made Where's Waldo was a real bastard with that.

    I remember as a kid, I spent probably a week looking at that page trying to find that particular Waldo (the one with the missing left shoe). Eventually I gave up, and never, ever looked upon a Waldo book ever again. =) I honestly thought that it was a tease, and that the waldo with the missing shoe didn't actually exist. =)
