This weekend I’ve got a 3 day pass for Wizard World in Philly. This is the first year that I have skipped on the VIP package, so no freebies or goodie bag waiting for me, but this year I am focused on economic efficiency. You can blame The Simple Dollar for my new-found attempts at thrift and fiscal responsibility.
I got in touch with Harley Yee, a seller that I have bought from on eBay as well as in person in Pittsburgh this year. The game plan is to flip some of my X-Men duplicates for cash and/or some of the books on my wish list. After two recent purchases, I’m down to six books left on my X-Men 1-201 run. Issue number 1 still eludes me, mostly because I have a mortgage. But someday, someday.
Debating a costume for Saturday. With the current bearded look I’m sporting, my options are limited. I went through my closet and I think my low-cost pret-a-porter costume is Shipwreck from GI Joe.
My only fear is looking a sailor on shore leave in the middle of the City of Brotherly Love.
Hopefully, I’ll look better than this dude:
Someday, my girlfriend will dress like the Baroness. Someday, someday…
