At the big multi-media comic conventions, the big media stars generally keep to themselves. The stages, the autograph booths, the photo pose area, the green rooms backstage, the hotel suites and private bars and maybe a VIP party or three.
But Peter Capaldi is a comic book fan of old. So when he goes to a comic convention like Emerald City Comic Con last weekend, he does all the above.

And has perfected his Jon Pertwee hand-to-camera pose too…
“You Never Forget Your First Doctor” is a shirt I saw in 2015. It’s true. #PeterCushing was my #DoctorWho movie introduction, #PeterCapaldi was my TV one, but the latter remains with me the most! 😊💕 #TwelfthDoctor #ECCC #ECCC2019https://t.co/4Uh90EawaPhttps://t.co/TT1L2GGafC pic.twitter.com/5WDkKpOZ5c

But then goes and finds the kind of comics and comic creators he likes as well. At a Comic Con. And it’s enough of an oddity that is worthy of note. Especially by comic book creators.

You know…… a guy came by my booth that looked A LOT like Peter Capaldi and I was going to compliment him on his ace cosplay, and am one billion percent glad I did not, in retrospect.

Biggest shout out to Peter Capaldi our king who goes to the artist alley of conventions and is just taking photos, shaking hands and signing

Also I totally thought “That’s a great Dr Who cosplay” before I saw the four guards flanking him. In a all blue suit and sunglasses, just strolling through like a boss.

Maybe more media stars might like to try it? You don’t have to mask up to disguise yourselves…
