TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Volunteer to do something nice for someone and you will enhance your reputation. Research an area of interest and you will find a way to incorporate it into your plans. An old idea, look or trend can be brought back to life successfully.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): A change of plans may not suit you, but instead of making a scene, make whatever alterations are necessary and go about your business. Don't waste time trying to convince someone to do things your way. Give others freedom and space.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Protect your position, reputation and status. Not everyone will be supportive, and some may even try to make you look bad. You will overcome any opposition if you keep your story straight and live up to your promises.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Don't agree to do things you don't want to do. Someone you love will help you recognize what you must do to stabilize your life. Change is required, but it doesn't have to cost you. Moderation is your ticket to advancement.

Dressing up at a Comic-Con:

• General Rule: Don't worry about being body-type appropriate for your costume. Nobody else does.

• Be prepared to let free your inner geek/nerd. Let it run free … but on a short leash. (We don't want it breeding.)

• Don't forget to also wear your credentials: Either your convention pass or broken glasses held together by masking tape.

• Obscure characters are welcome, but be careful if people are trying to figure out if you're dressed up or not.

• If you're a woman, be prepared to stop every 30 seconds for someone to take your picture.

• If you're a man, be prepared to stop about every 30 seconds to take a woman's picture. (Feel free to dress up, too, if you want; not that it really matters.)

• Expect to be jostled on busy days, so if you have a costume with extra appendages or paraphernalia, don't become miffed when one of your wings gets clipped. Just take those broken wings and learn to fly again, learn to live so free.

• Most overused costumes for women: Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn. Most underused: Invisible Woman. Or is it?

• Most overused costumes for men: Joker and Batman. (Really, there's life outside of Gotham, people.) Most underused: Dr. Manhattan — much to all fangirls' dismay.

• Women: Whether you're wearing short skirts or HAZMAT suits, if it's a costume of any kind, no matter how skimpy or non-skimpy, you will still get your picture taken. You're a WOMAN at a COMIC-CON; it's just the way it is.

Brian Tanner went as Krillin one year. He died six times before the Con was over.
