There’s a Superhero Fun Run on May 8th, in which they’re trying to beat the Guinness Book of World Records for the number of superheroes who show up to do a 5K fundraiser walk.

Obviously this is an ideal opportunity to make a Chance costume. I don’t suppose I can knock off 15 pounds, grow another 8 inches of hair, and get Arms of Steel by then, too…

(giant picture of the Chance outfit behind the cut, just in case by some insane reason you’ve been reading this blog and yet somehow don’t know what Chance looks like… :))

Oooo, that sounds awesome! I love the idea of a fun run. And the idea of someone going as Chance is just fantastic. The idea of you going as Chance is off the scales.

Let me know if you do it. I will absolutely sponsor you. Because that is just too much awesomeness to let go unrewarded.

I can't decide if it's a good idea or hopelessly, embarrassingly Mary-Sue-self-indulgent. :)

Definitely the former.

(Besides, even if it is a little of the latter - which it so isn't, but even if it was - don't we all need a bit of that from time to time?)

It'll be fun. It has to be. It says so in the title. ;) And it's for a good cause.

Besides, how many of the participants can claim to be a real, live published comics author?

Or, think about it this way: Let's say Neil Gaiman was going. What if he went as someone from the Sandman books? Would you think that was egotistical and self-indulgent or just plain awesome?

Personally, I think it'd be pretty awesome, and not self-indulgent at all. If anything, it speaks of a personal pride in your work, saying to everyone, "I am proud of my work!"

Of course, carrying that concept forward, I get the giggles thinking of Stan Lee dressed in a Spider-Man costume... ;)
