One Day at Comic Con (a very short story)

A 140 word story for the GISHWHES scavenger hunt
As requested by team Quackles Loves Multiple Bison Loves Soups Natural Loves Geekwhes

Boba Fett blocked my path. He stood beside Darth Vader, posing for pictures and blocking the already clogged aisle.

I wanted to shout. “Don’t you know who I am? I’m Misha Collins, star of Supernatural!”  I’m not, of course. Well, I am. However dressed as the Queen of England in drag no one would know.

I shouldered Boba Fett aside. “Make way for the Queen!” I roared. Laughs from the crowd.

A tentacle suddenly draped across my shoulder. It belonged to the most astounding costume in the convention center: an Elopus. Half elephant, half octopus. “Picture with you?” a gibbering voice asked.

“Sure,” I stammered.

The cosplayer leaned in and snapped a selfie. “Thank you, Misha,” it whispered.

I whirled, surprised. “How did--”

The elephant’s mouth parted. Inside was the actual Queen of England. She winked, turned, and slithered off.

(If you don't know what any of this means... don't worry, neither do I)
