Comic Con: The Nerd Economy Thrives

Went today. Never attended this particular one before. Although I’ve been to a few sci-fi or writer’s conventions. I thought Comic Con was only a west coast affair.

Rather nice and interesting event, I expected TV shows or something of that nature. But it was pure comics, video games, and the like.

I only regret not getting my hands on a T-shirt. It ended too soon, before I could see everything. And it was packed!

  1. Happy New Year. Sorry I missed you there.
    🙂

    (It’s been awhile since I’ve posted … but still lurking/reading. Don’t even get me started on the TSA, LOLsigh.)

    GoldenAh: Hey there, long time no speak!!! Hope everything is working out well. Happy New Years, and great to hear from you. 😉

  2. Haha, you should do it! Everyone should cosplay at least once in there life. I’m already planning my costume for A-kon (anime convention in Dallas,TX). I’ve been Maka Albarn from the anime Soul Eater for the last two years now (got my costume from Cosplay Magic.com, it’s legit and the costumes are top notch). I’m into the Mori Girl subculture now though and I wanna give it try. It’s not as dramatic as Lolita fashion, but equally charming *sigh* I’m in love.

    GoldenAh: That’s the first one I went to that was so BIG. I’ve seen costuming / cosplay before, but honestly, I’ve never seen so many black people (esp. the sisters) involved in it. Really nice. I was impressed, I really liked seeing that. 🙂

    So, if I ever find a catwoman-like costume. Maybe….

    Thank you for the links, Samadhi101.

  3. Hi Betty!
    Did you cosplay?

    GoldenAh: I wish I had the nerve. I admire the people who can do it and not feel selfconscious. I cannot even get into a costume for Halloween if my life depended on it. 🙂

    I liked it a lot. I can see myself returning next year….

    Now that I think about it: I wouldn’t mind wearing a Cat Woman outfit. 😀
