Tom recently took a road trip with friends to New Orleans to go to Comic Con. Most of the pictures are of his friends--he doesn't have any costumes. But the pictures sure look like they had a great time. I don't know much about this phenomenon. I recognized the Star Wars costumes but that was about it. I had to ask Chris about what everything else represented. He had to point out the Slender Man, Battlestar Galactica, Star Trek and Umbrella Special Forces costumes to me.
His friend, Mike, paid to get an autograph from Jonathan Frakes of Star Trek: The Next Generation and talked to "Data" who was sitting at the next booth so that was pretty fun to have a brush with celebrities. They also went to eat at the famous Mother's Restaurant in New Orleans. I didn't realize the history of the place until after he said that he went there. But it was a hangout for Marines and they have a lot of military photos hanging on the walls. Tom captured that in the photo of his three buddies all looking at the menu in line together although it is too small for you to see here.
