We fans of Mystery Science Theater 3000 had great reasons to show up this weekend. More about that in later entries. For now, you should really just relax.
Previously on Midlife Crisis Crossover: my wife and I went to C2E2 and took photos! Other chapters in the series:
Part 1: Costume Contest Winners
Part 2: The Rest of the Costume Contest
Part 3: Edge of Deadpoolverse
Part 4: Mighty Marvel Costumes
Part 5: More Comics Costumes
Part 7: Last Call for Costumes
Part 8: Stars of Comics and Screens
Part 9: Random Acts of C2E2ing
Today’s feature: costumes from sci-fi movies and TV! And a smidgen of fantasy for texture.
A Return of the Jedi Biker Scout represents for the Lucas fans. If only we all could’ve attended Star Wars Celebration Anaheim the weekend before. Meanwhile, Merida from Brave ponders her next move.
Wherever you find one Stormtrooper variant, dozens more are sure to follow. They multiply like “Sorceror’s Apprentice” brooms.
Before the exhibit hall opened Friday, an Imperial Officer handed out Droid Hunt cards to any attendees who loved the idea of ratting out the Rebel Alliance.
Careful observers will note this Wookiee is not Chewbacca. There’s a way to learn his/her name, but we’d have to rewatch either Revenge of the Sith or The Star Wars Holiday Special. You first.
Dark Helmet and Dot Matrix from Spaceballs. And they weren’t alone…
…as Lord Helmet brought along two of his beachcombers…
…and several other cast members for a live production of “Spaceballs: the Cosplayers!”
One of their trickiest feats was pulling off a Pizza the Hutt, who began to attract a following…
…and before we knew it, Aisle 100 found itself blessed and cursed with “Spaceballs: the Traffic Jam” as gawkers gathered in full force and everyone ran out of personal space. Forward motion became a challenge for several minutes.
Normally I’d think it scandalous to see Jessica Rabbit and Eddie Valiant together as a couple, but I calmed down a bit when I realized her husband Roger was an accessory.
We saw a few Doctors around the place, and expected no less, but this is the first time we’ve noticed someone bringing his trusty friend K-9. I think his programming’s been corrupted, though.
Six seasons and no movie, but Xena lives on anyway!
The Snowths, two of The Muppet Show‘s most celebrated one-hit wonders.
We began with MST3K. We end with MST3K. Keep circulating the pics!
To be continued!
