After the past weekend, I can safely cross one more off the bucklet list: to attend a Comic Con! In spite of impending exams, I decided that nerd life comes before studying (for once), and went with a friend to the Philadelphia Comic Con...and boy was it an experience. Being a comic con 'virigin,' I had no idea what to expect from attending a comic con, and quickly learned how awesome it is to dwell in nerdom with fellow fans, and get to meet to people involved in the industry.
|You can check in, but you can never leave...(with a full wallet).|
|Shinnies on sale. Expensive shinnies.|
|Sometimes I think the plate describes my life. Outtatime!|
|Collectibles on sale!|
|Superman and his 3 useful friends (I don't want to tempt Aquaman)|
|Darth Vader and a Royal Guard. Badasses of the Universe.|
|The nefarious Joker who never fails to amaze with his penchant for chaos...|
|Andrew Griffith of Transformers fame.|
|GW Fisher, he's quite a funny guy.|
|Mike S Miller, famous for his work on Games of Thrones and Injustice.|
|It's a wonder how much talent there is...|
What's especially cool about Comic Cons are the cosplayers. There is no doubt about that. These guys and girls really add flavor to the event, and I felt 'naked' not being in costume! I've crossed paths with superheroes, khalessis, and even an Astartes, and how awesome is that?! For now, I plan on saving up money to cosplay/dress up the next comic con I would be going to :)
|Khalessis on show, haven't seen a Khal Drogo around yet.|
|Who am I gonna call???|
|COOOOOBBBBBRRRRRAAAAAA! A dad who dresses up is super cool by my count.|
|Orcs and humans shall never find peace...at least in front of the camera.|
|I AM THE LAW!!!!|
|Managed to catch Sonic before he ran off!|
|FOR THE EMPEROR!!!|
|Oh yeah...the beginnings of being enslaved to heartless capitalism?|
Well, that leaves me having some notes for the next Comic Con:
Keep a close watch on VIP appearances/panels.
Research comic book artists.
Have to dress up next time!
JQ get your ass to a Comic Con!
I love being a geek.
