Don’t let the headline fool you, I am not a con artist, I was just referring to someone who spends a lot of time at Conventions, a conner, and I am not one. But I did spend last weekend at San Diego Comic-Con, the largest comic and pop culture convention in the country, if not the world.
I’m not going to spend this post recapping what I did, it’s probably not that interesting since most of it was walking that giant creature around downtown San Diego. But really, that thing is awesome and if you want to learn more check it out here.
Basically, my boyfriend – Ryan Cultrera, works for the Stan Winston School of Character Arts and we volunteered to help out with their giant creature for the weekend. In return we got into a few parties and got to hang out with it all day. Which was AWESOME! I met Skrillex at Adam Savage’s party on Friday night. What more could a girl want?!
Really, this post is to show you that I, someone with fairly bad social anxiety, braved the most crowded building/area in the world for a weekend. And I survived! It was actually fantastic. Lines were long, but totally worth it. I got to try out an oculus rift, and see 4 minutes of new footage from Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Now for what this post is really about. The pictures. Here are the best pictures I snapped this weekend. I’m sorry there isn’t more cosplay, it was just so crazy most of the time.
And that was my brief trip to Comic-Con. Next year I’ll have more to write about, and of course take many more pictures. Hopefully next year someone will pay me to write about what it was like being in that crazy, clusterfuck of a convention center.
