Thoughts about Suicide Squad

After a couple of weeks of waiting, I was finally able to see Suicide Squad. Here are some of my quick thoughts about the movie, so be warned if you haven’t seen it because I will divulge spoilery things.

Snapshot … ECCC 2015 Pix

I talk about that experience on Episode 82 of the podcast. Anyway, I was looking at my phone the other day and realized that I forgot to post some pictures the day that the girls and I dressed up at the 2015 Emerald City Comicon.

Of course, they HAVE to fight! ;)

At this point, we were ready to go to the last day of the con. We split up, and “Harley” came with me to the Redesigning Costumes panel. She’s so shy, right?

 

 

Finally, I wanted to have a picture of us in front of the ECCC picture screens, so we took this picture right before we left. It was a great day.
