Hey there Hoppereenos! Just bouncing on by with a lil bit of fun stuff from today.
Today I wanted to just get a feel for the crowd. Seek out some more cool merch, as tomorrow the panels I REALLY want to see are going to be springing up. It will be the weekend. The Vendors will be coming round more. Basically…MASS CHAOS. So one more day of just wandering and letting it all sink in.
Kind of cracked me up because the first two people I run into going inside are Adam and Matt (Matt from FOX this time). Both completely amazing guys. They gave me some pointers of what areas around had cool items (as I didn’t realize this Con goes BEYOND just the Convention Center). What to watch for. Also to let me know to expect to start the “sardine walking” on Friday. So off I went.
First, Cosplayers…I really wanted to see some fun people dressed up. Now, forgive me…some of the pics are a lil out of focus. More so because I was juggling swag I am collecting to possibly give out to our readers (hint hint), but also due to there were just soooooo many cute Geeks n Nerds…let’s just say I wasn’t all that focused. Lol.
This I thought was totally awesome!! Not only did she go all out to create Vanellope, but she also went to her knees and the car…it GOES. Wheels move and all. Brilliant!!
This group was an adorable family that cracked me up. Bob had to run to the lil boys room, so he missed out on the pic. Lol
These two guys made me giggle. Spotted them while passing the FOX booth (where Kiefer Sutherland was signing autographs, met him before…nice guy). I of course chose it as time to ask these two to stop and let me take a pic. Lol.
Then I wandered some more. Still just trying to take it all in. I feel like a Zombie. No thoughts…no will…just… “need geek things, hungry”.
EVERYTHING IS AWESOME!!! Just so much stimulation. Can I just have one of everything please?
Just. So. Much.
By this time, I was melting. It was soooooo hot inside. Like the A/C had been sucked into the pores of everyone in there. I needed some air.
So what does one do when you are really hot? Go outside in the direct sunlight of course!! Lol. Today I figured I would venture over to Petco Park. (I love that they put stuff outside.)
Saw another interesting group of cosplayers on the way.
I could see just how big the expansion of the Convention Center was from the bridge leading over the street to it. WOW!
Everywhere you go there was a line for this or that with tons of free stuff. Even people just randomly handing it out to you for just walking around. What really caught my eye here was a “company” for the show Leftovers. A booth set up as if this just really happened and we were left behind, but miss the ones gone. So this company, Loved Ones, will take images of those gone and recreate them. It was kinda creepy and cool at the same time. The skin felt real, the hands and hair, and even the eyes too. Not to mention extras like scars, piercings, and even tattoos.
I sat back and watched the looks on peoples faces as they touched each item. Lol.
Wow, it is hard to believe they packed so much into this. I am in awe. Time to rest for the night as I still have 3 more days of this to go. Still more to come.
Something at SDCC YOU want to know about? Any tips for me? Anything I should watch out for? TALK TO ME!!! Lol.
Til Next Time,
