Aiya (Hello in Quenya)!
Today we are gonna take a look at my trip to the
San Diego Comic Con 2013.
I was privileged enough to be given a professional pass
this year for myself and a +1!
So lets have a look, shall we?
Btw, at the end of this post, I have 3 giveaway prizes from Comic Con!
Above is a panoramic shot of Comic Con.
The convention center is to the left (barely in the picture), towards the middle is where gaslamp district is, and on the right is petco park!
This bridge is pretty gnarly.
It looks like a sword!
Here’s an over head shot of one of the areas outside of the convention center.
You actually don’t need a pass to access this area.
Here’s a closer look at a few of the things in this area…
Prop from the new movie, Wolverine.
Adult Swim fun house…
Here’s a look at the lines outside of Hall H for the panels.
I didn’t go to any panels because I didn’t want to wait hours and hours to get in.
I heard that some people waited as long as 12 hours for a panel,
while others waited 9+ hours and didn’t even get it.
Anyways, now looking inside of the Exhibit Hall.
Yes, you need a pass for this area.
The My Little Pony section!
Some Hello Kitty meets Street Fighter.
I love the Hello Kitty Akuma, lol.
Gundams~ I still dream of building one someday.
Oh and this year there was a Zombie Walk during Comic Con!
So lots and lots of zombies everywhere.
And of course when you think zombies, you should think…
THE WALKING DEAD!
Haha, I’m not good at acting scared…
While we were in the exhibit hall, the entire cast of How I Met Your Mother
walked right by us to go to their booth.
Ahh my favorite character, Barney
Oh and of course, Breaking Bad.
Adventure Time also had a fun booth with a larger than life Ice King. You can actually walk inside him and it looks like his castle with the jail, throne, and everything. Including penguins!
Here’s our photo that we took inside.
Here’s a few Sideshow Collectable figurines.
All very detailed and awesome!
Here’s some artwork sold by Acme Archives Direct.
Oh how I love Star Wars and wish I could own all of these paintings…
I really want this Millennium Falcon Tech Plate…
That way I can display it over a Millennium Falcon replica in my future house, HA!
This is also on my wish list, The Jedi Path (center book).
It is incased in a box that opens up in a super cool way.
Boss, Yoda is.
Haha, I think we see Stan Lee and every convention.
Now when I see him, it’s more like, oh look there’s Stan again!
Here’s a crazy sculpture of the Lich King from World of Warcraft at the Blizzard Entertainment booth. The detailing is amazing!
This is WarJack from Warmachine made by Privateer Press.
Now for some cosplay photos…
I think AX wins at cosplay. Most of the cosplays at comic con looked more like store bought halloween costumes. But there were some that stood out, such as Cinema Makeup School’s two unique characters. Great makeup work!
I think I’m in love with Comic Con’s all out, full body cosplays.
How do they survive wearing those things?!
Ahh, here are some old school Cylons. They actually made that humming sound too, and the red dot in the eyes actually moves back and forth. Really legit!
I saw so many headless horse mens at Comic Con, or were they all the same ones?! Lol.
Night time in the Gaslamp District is beautiful!!
All the geeks and nerds have over run this city. I love it.
We some how ended up at a really grungy underground club, but whatever.. they had cheap drinks, good music, and lots of lights!
As a whole, I truly enjoyed my time at Comic Con. I will definitely be back again next year! I must admit, it is a tad bit more fun than Anime Expo, but I think my heart will always belong to AX first.
