Hello convention lovers,
I spent a lot of this year at San Diego Comic-Con standing in lines to get into rooms and watching panels (a.k.a. sitting in one room all day). While the panels are always a good time, standing in the lines really SUCKS.
Luckily, I also had almost a full day where I was free to do nothing but walk around the con floor, which is one of my favorite things to do at the San Diego Convention Center.
Walking around the con floor can be a bit overwhelming. The crowds are crazy! I came home with tons of tiny bruises all over my body from constantly bumping into people. I frequently lost site of my friends while trying to navigate through the giant nerd mass. I found it easiest to only travel with Anne.
Once we tried adding more peeps, I got too stressed trying not to get separated. Still, it is totally worth the chaos to see the phenomenal merchandise, people in costume, and some of my favorite writers and television/movie stars on the floor.
Check out this pic I got of Stan Lee!
Also, check out these crazy remote control flying sharks (Air Swimmers) someone had!
People in costume are abundant on the con floor. They are constantly being stopped and asked for photos and sometimes stay in the same spot taking pictures with people for hours. Some people are dressed in costumes that you could buy at your local Halloween store, while others go ALL out. It’s incredible what some of these people are able to put together. They truly look like they just walked off a movie set. I wish I had a fraction of the talent that these people who make these astounding works of art have.
I made sure to gather a photo collection of me hugging the bad guys from Star Wars I saw just so I can send them to my brother who always hums the Imperial March when I walk into a room.
Thank you for your service to the Dark Side!
You can also find people dressed up outside the con. Anne and I went out in search of food with some friends one night and we got trapped on the sidewalk by a freaking ZOMBIE parade!
These people got ALL into being zombies. I actually saw a girl take a guy with a camera down to the ground, and she freaking BIT him. FOR REAL. He was screaming and I could see the bite mark on him.
Check out this zombie chick with the baby! Crazy, huh?
Zombies in San Diego? Who ya gonna call?
I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention all the extraordinary merchandise that’s available at the con. There is a wide variety of stuff for purchase like apparel, actions figures, and toys.
The con has thousands of kick-ass nerd shirts for sale. I got this one for myself!
I also got these Star Wars ice cube trays.
And, of course, there are marvelous collectables all over the floor.
I also picked up some toys for myself. I ran into the Uncle Milton Star Wars Science booth and I fell in love. They make educational Star Wars toys. How cool is that? I picked up these super cool light sabers.
I got a chance to talk with Dave Malacrida from Uncle Milton Star Wars Science a little about their other products. Check out the interview below:
