I don’t fully understand Comic-Con. Is it happening now? Hasn’t it been happening for, like, two months? Comic-Con is like the olympics or like any sports playoffs to me in that I don’t understand when they happen or how long they are or why anyone is interested. Except at least Comic-Con isn’t on ALL the channels ALL the time, so it is definitely the front runner. But one thing I do understand about it is that famous people are there (because one time my friend went and met Clark Duke) and in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Sarah Michelle Gellar discusses her experience with Comic-Con and offers this advice to other actresses:
I always say to actresses, if you haven’t been — this is going to sound really funny — but get a mask and take a look around. I’m serious. You get rushed into your panel and you come out of the backside, and you never actually see the main hall. It’s pretty amazing.
It definitely sounds pretty amazing. But yeah, sure! It seems perfectly reasonable that if you are a famous actress, it would be an appealing idea to be able to just put on a whatever mask and be able to walk around and look at a bunch of weirdos while they leave you alone. I’ve heard about celebrities doing that before and it sounds great. But this obviously leaves us with a big question in all caps: WHAT IS SARAH MICHELLE GELLAR’S COMIC-CON DISGUISE?
Now, I don’t know a whole lot about what people dress up as at Comic-Con but here are my guesses:
- Harry Pottress
- George W. Bush
- Buffy the Vampire Slayer
- Cheerleader With Fairy Wings And Fangs
- Kanye West
- Japanese Girl
- Present-Day John Norris
- Black Swan
- Lots Of Hats That Seem Like They’re Going To Topple Over But They Don’t
- Ghost World
- Scary Mask That I Don’t Understand With The Mustache
- Clark Duke
- Backwards Clothes w/Stab Wound
- Kurt Loder
- Sexy Nurse w/Zombie Mouth
- Downtown Julie Brown
- Gideon Yago
Those seem the most likely to me but, again, I don’t know THAT much about it all.
