SDCC 2011: Scavenger Hunt

Posted by sora_thekey (8152 posts) - - Show Bio

What do you want to see?

This weekend I get the amazing privilege to, once again, hang out with Whiskey Media's awesome personalities as their intern. It has been decided to let the Comic Vine community in on the San Diego Comic-Con experience by making me complete a scavenger hunt. I will be your eyes throughout the Con with my camera, taking pictures of whatever you want!

First, let me go over the game rules. In the comment section of this post, write out what you want a picture of. You can ask for a picture of anyone/anything that I might be able to find at the convention. You can even ask me to do something in the pictures. For example: "Do a handstand in the middle of the convention floor" (I'm not doing this btw). Ask for whatever you want, the sky is the limit, but because I am only human I cannot guarantee all your requests will be met. I will try to do most of them though.

Ex:

"Picture with Spider-Man" --sora_thekey

At the end of each day I will be posting the pictures of what you asked for. Ready? Set? Go!

"Get a picture of the mighty Humberto Ramos" --xerox-kitty

"Propose marriage to a Power Girl cosplay ;p" --Kellarkz

...and she said yes! (Got this on video too)

"Can we get a picture of a (notable) artist working on a commission?" --The Dark Huntress

Is Chris Giarrusso notable??

"Get some Dark Knight Rises pictures please :D." --Caligula

Poster and Bat-Suit!

"I want you hugging a Wonder Woman cosplay" --RazzaTazz

I got two hugs from two different Wonder Women!

"Get a picture of anything Dr. Who while holding a sign up that says For Jenna" --CrashLanden

Couldn't find the art but hopefully the 7 year old is happy! Tardis! (Sorry for the face... It was the end of a long day of walking)

"Take a picture of the crew of The Big Bang Theory." --Billy Batson

The line to see the BBT cast was three hours... So I got the next best thing:

"Anything Jim Lee" --Tigerstriper

Blown up poster of JLA #1

"I would love to see some footage of the Arkham Asylum stuff" --.Mistress Redhead.

I didn't have a video camera, but would some promo posters be enough? (You can see the San Diego trolley!)

"I want a picture of chris evans in the costume of Captain America" --qiva12

Chris Evans was there but not in costume... Then the costume was there but no Chris. So I got you a picture of the costume from the Marvel Booth:

"A picture with Francis Manupal would be EPIC as well." --Darkchild

He was getting ready for a CV video!

"See if you can find any Watchmen cosplayers to do the sprinkler dance." --Caligula

They were awkward about it but they did it. (One of them didn't want to)

"Get a picture of InferiorEgo at the con!" --inferiorego

Last one I got! I found him drinking!

This was great guys. Let me know if you want me to do this again for a future convention! Hope you all enjoyed this little adventure that Comic Vine included you all in.

Get some Dark Knight Rises pictures please :D.
 if it has a booth.

#5 Posted by danhimself (22270 posts) - - Show Bio

you should find out if you can recreate the Spider-man movie kiss  :)

#6 Posted by Caligula (12417 posts) - - Show Bio

also see if you can find any, Watchmen cosplayers to do the sprinkler dance.

#7 Posted by Billy Batson (57743 posts) - - Show Bio

Do a handstand in the CORNER of the convention floor. 

 

Something related to European comics. (anything)

Take a picture of Dan Hipp and ask for a sketch (if he's there) 

Take a picture of the crew of The Big Bang Theory.

I have 2 requests... Could you look in the Souvenir Book and see if there is a drawing of the Watchmen by Crash! Landen? I would be very gracious to see a picture of that. I don't know if there is one, though. If there's not, you could crush my spirit with that news, also. 
 
My second, less selfish request would be could you get a picture of anything Dr. Who while holding a sign up that says For Jenna? Tardis, cast, whatever... You would make a 7 year old who couldn't go to SDCC this year very happy. 
 
Thanks.

Time to get the Vapo Rub, but be-careful and don't go counter-clockwise cause my chest hair mats.

Find Bob Burden and take a picture with him.

#17 Posted by Darkchild (40624 posts) - - Show Bio

picture of a button, if u can find one with Aquaman would be epic. Or hell a picture with Francis Manupal would be EPIC as well.

#18 Posted by harleyquinn12 (1767 posts) - - Show Bio

A picture with Alan Moore, possibly? xD I'm SURE he's there.

I agree, I am Mr. Moore's biggest fan, but I have never got to meet him. His writings are the reason I am who I am today. If you could get a cool picture of him I would love you even more than I already do Geo!!! 
Even more if you can get a mall piece of paper with his autograph for me :D

Ask a Stormtrooper how he goes to the bathroom.

cool blog Sora

#26 Posted by Caligula (12417 posts) - - Show Bio

if you find yourself around a Batgirl booth, find out what's up with Stephanie Brown?

I was really really loving Stephanie's run, and it seems as though DC has just shoved her into the ether.

#27 Posted by danhimself (22270 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm pretty sure I saw Sora on G4 yesterday

#28 Posted by ruckus24 (135 posts) - - Show Bio

Okay Sora here's a challenge. Find Andy Mangels and get a picture of you, him, and at least two Wonder Woman Cosplayers (all together). If you need it, I'll give you a little help since this might be difficult to stage.

I want a picture of chris evans in the costume of Captain America

#30 Posted by CrashLanden (122 posts) - - Show Bio

I got a picture last year of (I think) Micheal Cera in a Captain America costume (http://crashlanden.files.wordpress.com/2010/07/capamerica1723.jpg).

#31 Posted by sora_thekey (8152 posts) - - Show Bio

Alright! A lot of the pictures have been posted. I have a few more I have not completed but just so everybody knows today is the last day to request stuff. Today is also the day with the most cosplay. So get me working!
