Default SOS...Costume help...Wizard World Philly!

I'm going to WW Philly for one day only, Friday, June 17. I need costume suggestions. I'm a big dude...6'1". 350 lbs. I went as Arthur dent 2 years ago, need something easy and fun cheap is a plus, I want to spend my money on sketches... What say y'all?

I just bought a black suit at a thrift store that fits me reasonably well...any ideas that might incorporate that would be cool, as long as I don't destroy the suit. (it's just pants and a jacket...)

Here's an idea.



Sylent and I saw this guy at SDCC and thought his costume was awesome. Instead of Optimus, it's probably better if you wrote Megatron.

LOL! If you go for the Megatron costume, get a cardboard poster tube and rubberband it around your arm for the blaster.

That or you can go as a member of the Crazy 88 from Kill Bill. You'll just need to find a black mask and a toy sword.

I kinda like that idea, that option is open. More suggestions though...I've got a week to put something together.

I walked around the costume shop and pondered costumes and decided on The Penguin. I like the results, and I made the local news website.
