Another Comic-Con in the bag

Stick a fork in me, I'm done. I'm nearly recovered from San Diego Comic-Con. Though the convention is all kinds of crazy and exhausting, I wouldn't trade it for anything. It did feel harder to navigate the crowds this year and getting from point a to point b made me more tired and crankier than usual, but I have a hunch the high humidity and heat that plagued San Diego had something to do with it. Come on, weather controlling people, San Diego's supposed to be breezy and tolerable!


Here's a rundown of some of the cool things I saw and did this year:

- I met the real-life Chopper (not the statue in the above picture) from Star Wars Rebels. I want one.
- I saw the first episode of Star Wars Rebels, and it was delightful. My spoiler-free thoughts are at IGN.
- I interviewed the cast and executive producers for Agents of SHIELD, Agent Carter, Once Upon a Time, and Supernatural for IGN and Nerdist.
- I covered some cool panels including ones for the shows listed above and iZombie and Toy Story that Time Forgot. I'm feeling jazzed about iZombie.
- I got in some Baymax love because I've already fallen for the character from Big Hero 6:

- I didn't eat nearly enough food.
- I received my first ever blisters in nine years of attending Comic-Con. That was not my favorite.
- I hugged people I only see a few times a year.
- I followed Guillermo del Toro in a makeup chair during an IGN livestream recording thing.
- I got stuck in a swarm of crowds at least one million times.
- I watched people run through an Assassin's Creed parkour/obstacle course, video here.


- I stopped by the Wired Cafe and had some Game of Thrones beer:


- I attended my first fashion show, and it featured geek haute couture.
- I dressed like a Lumberjanes scout with some of my dearest friends:


- I had an amazing time despite being sweaty and wiped for 4.5 days straight.

  1. That seems like it was an awesome time. It kind of cool to experience comic-con through your blog. I hope I will be able to make it there one year, right now I'm planning for next year, but we'll see how that goes. Thanks for sharing.

    1. It was a whirlwind but completely worth the stress and lack of sleep. Thanks for reading the posts, and I hope you make it to San Diego next year. It's an experience, for sure.
