MODOK’s Adventures

It was a dark and stormy morning at Dragon Con. OK, it wasn’t dark and it was only a light drizzle of rain, but MODOK made the smart decision to get into the STG – Boy Genius panel line early. Earlier in the Con Wil Wheaton had announced that he really didn’t want to do an hour of STG talk and would tell the “William F@#%ing Shatner” story with Paul and Storm.

The panel started with this:

Yep, Wheaton proceeded to “Cos” Play Cosby on STG, with the Plasma and the pudding pops. “That’s a $25 dollar joke folks.” After some back and forth between Wheaton and Paul and Storm about the cost of said joke, an attractive brunnette in a Mirror Universe, midriff exposed, Star Trek costume stood up from the front row and handed Wheaton $25 to subsidize that routine.

After removing the sweater Wil called out for “THE CAPE OF DICKS.” Here’s the 2011 PAX video where Wil received the cape.


There was much pomp and ceremony when Wil donned the Cape of Dicks. The donning ceremony ended with Wil saying:

“If you find yourself offended by the Cape of Dicks, you should probably leave before I start talking.”


Then began the epic story of Wheaton’s first meeting with “William F@#%ing Shatner.” (This is a previously performed version, MODOK’s video recorder failed epically.)

Wil then sat down with Garret Wang of Voyager fame and the current Dragon Con Trek Track Director. There were the usual questions until Wil was asked if he would sign a woman’s boob. Wil said why not and proceeded to autograph that boob.

About 4 questions later a guy stepped up to the mic and asked the same question.

The panel wrapped up and every filed out. Wheaton is very fast on his feet while on stage and really gives a great show. While MODOK was walking back to another hotel at the convention he ended up walking through the rain just behind . . .

Yes, that is Wil Wheaton in the Cape of Dicks walking in the rain back to the hotel for his time signing at the Walk of Fame. Even Internet greats get rained on. It was suprisingly fitting that Wil was kept dry by the Cape of Dicks.

Here are some other pictures of Cosplay that missed the last post.



MODOK began to lose his sense of time and space as the weekend progressed. Days blurred, panel lines stretched into infinity, and a 12 oz Diet Coke for $2 and a ham and cheese sandwich for $8 started to look like a great deal. MODOK would like to mention something that has not gotten a lot of press that really made Dragon Con fun, sparking laughter, conversations, and general good feelings.

Dragon Con TV – Surprisingly funny, and entertaining. Taking cues from and using Adult Swim style show bumpers, Dragon Con TV made some great shorts about conventions and the people that attend them. These helped entertain the panel crowds while seating and setup occurred.


There was also some great shorts by Sci-Fi Janitors. These guys are very funny and the shorts are fantastic.



MODOK would apologize for having t0o much fun at Dragon Con and not posting MODOK’s Adventures in a timely manner, except for the simple fact that


Saturday was full of great fun starting with the Dragon Con Parade. The folks over at posted a great video of the parade that captured the festival atmosphere of the parade.


 Saturday evening was a costume bonanza in the hotel lobbies. The gender switch costumes are big this year with plenty of great female Han Solo and male Disney Princesses.





Then it happened . . . MODOK found his minions and there was great rejoicing and much picture taking.

A.I.M. Scientist Soldiers!

These guys were great fun and a big hit for those walking around the hotel lobbies. There are a ton more pictures to post as well as a treasure trove from a friends shots. Once the Con is over and MODOK has a chance to breath MODOK will post a couple of galleries of the best, funniest, and most creative costumes.

MODOK needs rest now. There’s a panel that MODOK will have to line up for around 7AM to make sure MODOK gets in.
