So Comic Con has hit San Diego. Can you believe it all started 44 years ago in the basement of a hotel? It’s quite a lot bigger now. A WHOLE lot bigger, with more than 125,00 people attending. WOW! I have never been inside Comic Con. I have only been on the streets surrounding the convention center – watching the zombies and gladiators running around in character. Huge fun. I’ve seen costumed characters get off the trolley near my house, and I am in awe.
Then again, I love to play dress-up. I would SO do this if I had the chance.
Dress up is the name of the game.
Well-behaved mob obviously waiting for something. Look at the detail on that guy’s leather armor! Lot the extra-large ram horns in the back too. Wouldn’t want to butt heads with him!
Every super hero needs some cheek blood.
Okay. Creeped out now. Very creeped out.
In addition to all the costumes, there are panels that everybody wants to attend. Some are more popular than others. My favorite Game of Thrones character was here yesterday. Love Tyrion! Played by Peter Dinklage.
I wonder if George Martin will kill him off soon….. Hope not.
And Benedict Cumberbatch is here too. In addition to having one of the coolest real names EVER, he is also a very nice man. Apparently, he is completely enamored with Comic Con and stops to talk to people. How sweet is that? He isn’t jaded yet. They all get jaded sooner or later. I think jaded-ness comes with the territory.
Still a nice guy, that Benedict Cumberbatch. Maybe his cool name will save him from eventual asshole-ness.
I don’t think Morgan Freeman is jaded. He sucked helium with Jimmy Fallon. That’s a clear indication he is probably not an asshole.
