Waiting in SeaTac for our plane to San Diego. It was bittersweet for Syd. She had a great time at CTY.
Balcony over the Freeway
Arrived in San Diego and check into the Sheraton - Mission Valley. Got upgraded to a top floor suite with its own balcony.
Iron Man - SideShow
The first place we visit at Comic-con in the morning is the SideShow.com booth. They make very high end models.
Star Wars - SideShow
Boba Fett - SideShow
Vision - SideShow
The First Costumed Couple
Turns out there are a large number of couples who attend Comic-con in costume together. Anyone in costume is very happy to pose for a photo.
You Can Buy Your Costume at Comic-con
Sydney was excited to get a photo with guy. We thought his costume was very cool. It turns out there is whole section at Comic-con where you can buy costume stuff like this.
Green Lantern Collectibles
Sydney was excited by these Green Lantern collectibles.
Spong Bob Shoes & Hats
Bait had a line of shoes with lenticular soles.
All the Spong Bob Cast!
A bit surprised to see all characters have their own shoes.
The Maker-Bot booth was neat. They had made a giant geared heart model that worked.
One of the more elaborate costumes of the day.
One of the Comic-Con artists makes a sketch of Sydney as a flying superhero.
Working on Super Syd art.
There were many, many "Batmen".
Gene Simmons Bust
Kind of hardcore.
More Sponge Bob
Of course, Sydney like this.
Life is stranger...
You can't make this kind of stuff up. A little girl dressed as Princess Leia walked up to a Darth Vader and started playing with his buttons.
It's getting harder to find these guys.
Stand next to the woman while I take her picture. :)
Just walking around…this is what it's like.
Is it a club!
There are many clubs for people who dress in themed costumed. I think this is the "Any Kind of Princess" club.
One of the common areas for eating. There aren't nearly enough chairs.
Really like the Zombie artwork here.
Crazy LED Fur Coat
This guy is happy. He is about to get interviewed by a video crew. We are all curious about his inspiration.
A collection of girls that get tattoos, take off their clothes, and pose for photos. Of course, they have a booth at Comic-con.
Everyone was noticing her "Super Powers"...
Are those Super Powers...
I became interested in photographing the photography.
Zombie Wrestling Woman signing autographs…of course.
Don't know what this is.
Notice the Comic-con Bags
Especially the large "Warner Bros" Bag that goes to the ground. You can carry a lot in these.
This girl had a Millenium Falcon skirt. We were all a bit freaked out the the dude with the Princes Leia outfit.
Yes, there are Star Wars characters at Comic-con.
Weird Puppet Guy
Bloody puppet guy with Zombie puppets.
This girl was explaining the motorized Cat ears she was wearing…didn't really notice them.
Guess why these guys come to Comic-con
Costume Designers Guild
its on his bag
Alfred E. Newman
Klingons Use Escalators, too.
Lots of Stuff...
