Or you can take a cue from AwesomeCloud and watch with mild curiosity as they groan and flail at you on camera, and giggle and joke when you put the camera away.
Bystanders remarked that AwesomeCloud was astonishingly mellow and unafraid of all the zombies surrounding him. I remarked, "Oh, this is nothing. One time, he walked right up to Boba Fett."
We enjoyed our photo op, and as we headed back to the stroller, a gentleman waved at me and asked, "So, did you take him to a science fiction thing or something, when he met Boba Fett?"
"It was Free Comic Book Day, actually," I replied.
"Ah," said the man. "I'm a reporter for the Cape Cod Times. May I ask you your names?"
So, yeah. Not only did we witness a newsworthy event, but now we may even be mentioned in the newspaper. (Or not. The article will primarily be about the participants, and they'll be roaming the streets till 4:00 PM, so maybe he'll collect better bystander reactions than ours.)
