- Lack of crowds
- Lack of costumes
Quality of costumes All of the pics I have seen show top notch costumes so when I saw some not as good, it was a bit strange. Some peoples reminded me of race costumes which is fine when running but a bit strange when not.
Harley QuinnHoly Harley Quinn! She was definitely the most popular costume I saw. Easily saw 20+. The costume is pretty easy to put together
Lots to do outside the ConJust walking around there were tons of events to do like Adult Swim, ComicConHQ, FX, etc and we did the all on Sunday. One thing to note is there are long lines for everything so we didn't do too much interactive stuff.
Virtual Reality (VR)wow-VR is really taking off. We were able to do it for a suicide squad trailer at the Samsung event. It was really cool but some of it made me dizzy. One thing I noticed was a lot of people were doing VR but the lines were crazy long because they would only have 3 machines. Hopefully as the technology get cheaper, it'll be more fun.
All the fandomsSo I consider myself a nerd and know a decent amount about fandoms. However I was blown away by how much I didn't know. People would walk by with shirts on and I would have no idea the reference. I went to the adult swim outdoor event and literally had no idea what was going on.
The coming together of the party We went out to a bar where a lot of 501st people were going and the juxtaposition of the comic con folks in their casual clothes and people just going out in San Diego. It was definitely interesting but also fun!
Pokemon goUmm the amount of pokestops and Pokemons I caught was out of control. And so many others were playing too.
Overall, I had a good time! I would definitely go back and at some point would want to go to the actual Con inside. There are heavy tumors that Comic Con may more to Anaheim in the next year or two so we will see. In the meantime, I need to buy my badge for the D23 Expo coming up next July!
Have you ever been to Comic Con?
