This is probably my favorite picture from Comic Con. No, that's not a fellow cosplayer I'm standing with, but a life size Iron Man statue complete with glowing eyes and chest piece. I totally want one.
I once bought a life size statue of an Alien. That was about 1993. I have still not heard the end of it from the missus. There is no way I will ever get an Ironman. That would give her enough ammunition to last the rest of my life.
Okay. No, I bought that years ago. But I am reminded when we have to cut corners that I have a huge Alien statue. In her defense, I do haul it around and put it in the living room or kitchen on occasion.
