The Craigslist Missed Connections of St. Louis Wizard World
Jon Gitchoff The Khaleesi and Khal Drogo found each other. Who's next?
Earlier this week, we shared how an ingenious local man used a Wizard World photo opportunity with Firefly and Castle star Nathan Fillion to propose to his girlfriend. It's an adorable story, but unfortunately, not everybody was as lucky in love at the comic book/pop culture convention.
A look at the Missed Connections section of Craigslist reveals that a number of people were hit by "love at first sight" at Wizard World, held April 4 through 6 at America's Center. And we're down with kismet! But because many of the personal ads still are online nearly two weeks after the event, we can only assume that the love connections are still yet to be made.
So help us out, readers! Check out the enchanting Missed Connections ads below, and help us find the folks who might be somebody's love of a lifetime.
Note: all spelling, capitalization, wording and punctuation are exactly as they appear in the original ads.
CURIOUS ABOUT A CAT
Sexy Catwoman - m4w (Wizard Con)
Saw you a couple times during the con. Wasn't really in a good situation to approach you, but I really liked your costume and I think that you are beyond gorgeous. To filter out all of the other cat ladies, you were wearing glasses and had gold nails on your gloves. We got into a little staring contest during one of the panels. If you're interested and remember me, email me back.

During our many, many hours of walking the convention floor, we saw the Catwoman with the gold nails! Her costume was rad, but we weren't able to snap a photo of her. We did, however, get a shot of this other lovely Catwoman. She doesn't have special claws, but we wonder if she'd give the ad author cat-scratch fever anyway. Mreow!
Jon Gitchoff There's a Catwoman out there who's purrrrfect for the ad author above.

That after-party was a pretty big deal, with hundreds of cosplayers shaking their thangs to trance while rapper Tech N9ne gave out limited-edition prints with collaborator/artist Rob Prior. But we didn't notice Cinderella dashing away from the ball. Will her prince ever see her again?
On page two, we look for a worldly lady, an electric Pokémon and el doctor número diez.
