With my wife’s camera in-hand, I set out on the second day of Portland’s Wizard World Comic Con to capture all the wonderful things to to see and do. Such as...

This guy greeted us as we entered, towering over the WETA Workshop, which was loaded with all sorts of swag for sale to Middle Earth fans with deep pockets. You could even get prosthetic Hobbit ears attached by a professional make-up artist...

Or get a tattoo of your favorite superhero by the folks from A&E’s Epic Ink (based right here in Portland)...

Or participate in Last Man Standing, a new game show hosted by the one-and-only Bruce Campbell (yours truly was a contestant, which I previously wrote about HERE)...

Comic book Heaven...

Manga Heaven...

One of the original artists of Pinky and the Brain (of which I’m still a huge fan)...

The least-visited booth at the Con (what were they even doing here?)...

Q&A panel with the great Yaphet Kotto (Alien, The Running Man), who I‘ll write about in the next article...

There was even some entertainment outside the Convention Center in the form of Bible thumpers who arrived to remind cosplayers they will all burn in Hell...

Of course, it wouldn’t be a comic con without cosplayers, and there were plenty of them buzzing around the Oregon Convention Center this weekend. Whatever comic, movie or TV character you can think of, there was likely someone dressed up like them. And there were a lot more in attendance on the second day than the first.

Bane, looking badass...

Dredd, passing judgment...

Little Pythons...

Security was tight at the Con...

“Who” is this guy?

Yours-truly with…hell, I didn’t know. A little kid standing nearby rolled his eyes as he informed me it’s a character from Tron...

“Hudson or Hicks?” I asked. He said, “Hicks. Who the hell wants to be Hudson?”

Walter and The Dude, from one of my favorite movies...

The ultimate Alien queen (mee-ow!)...

This lady’s make-up was awesome, even up close...

Baby Fett...

Some characters know how to photobomb...

There were a ton of Maleficents & Black Widows (and no one was complaining)...

One cosplayer is obviously looking forward to Mad Max: Fury Road...

Chewbacca was one of the big hits of the Con (even though he killed this man)...

Plenty of classic characters were around as well...
