I've never been to Comic Con before. I was always afraid of it. Large crowds, nerds, nerds dressed up with their faces covered so they can commit crimes and get away with it...
Clearly, this slightly claustrophobic dork forgets that nerds are only violent in video games, but still. Comic Con never seemed like my idea of a good time.
This year, however, my BFF Glow was hired by G4 as their Art Director for their live event coverage and she invited us to hang out with her on her off hours, so hang out with her on her off hours we did!
I carpooled with Phoenix and the Boy She Adores and went down Friday night and here's a few pictures of what San Diego was like.
San Diego was cold. I think it got up to 68. Here's me poolside. I am wearing a bikini. And a terrycloth sleeveless Snuggie, also known as a towel.
I brought tank tops with me, cause you know, Southern California is usually very hot in the summer, but the weather was wacky. I wore a zip up hoodie all day and a jacket at night. And for the most part, I was still cold. But, well, I'm always cold. I should probably have more iron in my diet.
The only reason why that person behind me is laying out all normal like, is because he is probably from Alaska. And 68 is tanning weather over there. That's the only reason that makes sense. I mean, look at my hair! It was windy too!
And a lot of them dress up. It's kinda like Halloween. You see Super Mario characters, anime princesses, the Joker and Harleyquin, and one couple even dressed up as Carmen San Diego and Waldo. Never have I been more proud of finding those two, even if San Diego seemed to be an obvious choice to start searching for Carmen....
We rolled back in late yesterday afternoon, and the trip was great. I'll probably go next year.
And maybe even dress up.
