John Heder

     For Comic-Con 2005, Cris wanted to do something a little different and more comfortable than the Star Wars costumes that we had been wearing for several years.  We had just seen Napoleon Dynamite the previous summer and thought that the Vote for Pedro costume would be right up our alley :) 
    Well, when we got to the con, the costume was suprisingly popular.  Cris was even interviewed by a very giddy reporter and then recognized several times from that appearance on the local news!  To top it off, we discovered that Napoleon himself, John Heder, was going to be in attendance and would be signing autographs for the lucky few who had winning raffle tickets...
    Well the timing for the signing was less than convienient due to someother scheduling conflicts, but we decided that if we won, Cris would run back to the hotel and change... 
    As you can see, we won!  John was very cool.  He smiled patiently as the crowd grew and grew trying to get a shot of the two of us side by side.  He was even cracking jokes in his Napoleon voice!  Hopefully someday we will be able to run into him again and get one of these pictures personalized :)
