Science fiction conventions can feel like an alien world for newcomers.
People can speak differently at them, often invoking insider references about their favorite shows and comics.
And it’s a world where die-hard fans dress differently.
For instance, this weekend’s Planet Comicon in Kansas City is expected to attract droves of costumed convention-goers, dressed up like their favorite protagonists and antagonists from sci-fi novels and cinema.
We’re not suggesting that you dress up in costume this weekend, but we are curious about Kansas City’s sci-fi favorites.
Do you see yourself donning the costume of a phaser-wielding Capt. Kirk? Or do you lean toward more forgiving outfits, like Jabba the Hutt or a trench-coat clad Doctor Who?
Tell KCUR: If you were going to dress up for Comicon, which sci-fi hero would you pick? Why?
Or, call us and leave a message at 816-235-2881.
We’ll share your stories Thursday.
