Austin Comic-Con

I finally bit the bullet and decided to take the kids to the Austin Comic-Con but under one condition, we cosplay. I thought this would be the deterrent but I was wrong. My two youngest daughters were all in. One went as Maleficent and the other as Princess Star Butterfly and I went big.  I could have easily picked something easy like batman or something from overwatch but thats no fun. Instead I went with a Cacodemon from the doom.

Took me a couple attempts to get the shape but I knocked the whole thing out in less than two weeks. It primarily made of good old spray foam on top of a fiberglass shell. Paint is standard spray paint. The horns and teeth are XPS foam and the eye is a large Christmas tree ornament.  It was somewhat comfortable but sweaty swamp inside. Thankfully I took home Best Male Villain at the cosplay contest, so it was worth it.

Daughter number 2 went as Princess Star Butterfly. Almost everything is made from scratch except the boots and leggings.

Here is a close up of Princess Star Butterflys Wand

Unfortunately, I dont have any pics of the Maleficent costume.

Snack Attack! Pringles : Jalapeno

Wow. Pringles for the win again. The can was empty before we knew it. Im not the biggest fan of Jalapeno’s but the subtleness of these was fantastic.  Still amazing how Pringles is able to single in on a certain taste. If there was an Noble Peace Prize for chips, Pringles would win every year.

Snack Attack International! Nestle : Lion

SNACKATTACK4

I know what you are saying, this is a candy bar and might not qualify as a snack but I don’t care. I was traveling, and figured why not do a Snack Attack International. And let me tell you, this thing is fucking amazing. But before I get into the dirty, let me give some back story. I was sitting in my hotel room one night and a commercial came on for this candy bar and I was instantly pulled in. I walked down to the local convenience store and got one. Alright, that’s a lie. I passed out from exhaustion from traveling but the next night, after some copious amounts of beer and meat, I found this jewel of Europe. And like I said before, it is amazing. Nestle basically took every ingredient from its line of candy bars and jammed it into the Lion. It consists of a wafer, caramel, rice crispy, peanut butter, milk chocolate and finished off with a little tap on the ass from Jesus himself. I really did feel like a Lion after. This is the best candy bar I have ever had. Period. It is a shame its not available in the U.S. Thankfully I bought an entire box.
