Tell KCUR: If You Dressed Up For Comicon, Which Sci-Fi Hero Would You Pick? Why?


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?
