If you're at Comic-Con and want to schedule your own appointment, head to the Hilton San Diego Bayfront Hotel early each morning.

Headed for wardrobe? The salon? The armory?

Don't shoot

Again, not me, but love the hat. (When you go through the experience, you get to keep the genuine cowboy hat!)

Cocktail hour?

After the sorting hat, my compadres and I met up in the Saloon for some period-appropriate drinks and some good conversation. 

Black hats and white hats mingled without any altercations (surprisingly).

Haunting sounds

A blood-spattered piano played in the background as we ignored the feeling that danger was headed our way and lived without limits.
