It was another amazing year for San Diego Comic-Con. I don’t know about you, but I find it so hard to explain all of the amazingness of the week. Each Comic-Con brings it’s own sense of wonder and awe which is why it is unique from year to year. I am incredibly exhausted so I will do my best to put together a post that is somewhat coherent. In somewhat chronological order (but not by importance), my highlights of the week would included:
First arriving at San Diego and seeing all the banners, wraps, and promotions really brings back all the ‘feels’. It’s like stepping into Tomorrowland.
I can’t say enough how special it was to host Game of Bloggers. It was packed out with the finest the internet had to offer. To finally meet so many of you and hear your stories may have been the biggest highlight of the week for me.
Of course the creativity and zaniness of the Exhibit Floor.
Moderating the Wrath of Con Bloggers panel with Leonard, Megan, and Alyssa. Thank you for those that attended!
The Her Universe Fashion Show remains my favorite event of the week. So much inspiration and creativity!
Experiencing the excitement and enthusiasm over my Comic-Converse from fellow SDCC fans!
Without you, the week would not have been possible.
Going to the WB Hard Rock Rooftop party.
Almost getting eaten alive in a zombie apocalypse!
Checking out all the amazing offsite events like CONival, Nerd HQ, SherlockeDCC, Geeks Go Glam, and more.
The creativity of cosplay never ceases to amaze- and shame me.
GEEK WARS: The Nerds Awaken. Awesome panelists and awesome crowd.
Serendipity strikes as I cross over 10k Twitter followers, on my 10th anniversary at the show, on July 10th! CONgrats to Ben Root (Florida) for winning this swag bag- and it was his very first time to Comic-Con. Perfect.
Being at Hall H when the Batmobile and Zack Snyder rolled up to the delight of the campers. Only at Comic-Con.
While no one likes lines, I was so happy to see fans were able to walk into Hall H and Ballroom 20 at times throughout the week. I want as many people as possible to experience those crazy rooms.
Hanging out with my friend and designer Michael Lew. We had many amazing conversations about the Hero Within Collection. Some future meetings and iterations have already been planned- more to come about that soon.
Discovering cool and unique swag like the VR Box from Legendary Pictures.
Being reunited with old con friends and nerding out. Here, Chad, Angela, and I do our best Batman v Superman v Wonder Woman impression. Chad was a perfect Amazonian.
And lastly, meeting you all. I am always so blown away with your generosity and kindness with so many of you that I met. I am beyond humbled that that my site, videos, and my social media has brought value to our nerd community. Thank you for stopping me and saying hello!
Here were some of your highlights:
