Over $700 in spending
7 miles a day of walking
Meeting friends and readers
And hanging out with geeks
That's Comic Con in my world. But I also wanted to do a recap of my experience in San Diego. So here we go.
- It so fun, I think everybody should at least once.
- I will stay downtown next time.
- The hired help were not informed properly. They were giving the wrong info and had no idea what was going on.
- Nathan Fillion is really hot in person.
- There were tons of folks there.
- Doctor Who peeps were very popular this year.
- The process to get limited Comic Con edition of toys is tired. We shouldn't have to stand in line to get in, stand in line to get a ticket to get the toys and then stand in line to get the damn thing.
- The costumes are getting better and better.
- Mattel... supply the demand and quit running out of stuff!
- Geeks are the best.
- The gays represented this year!
- Comic Con is outgrowing San Diego... It's the truth.
- Putting Supernatural and Smallville panels at the weakest and final day of Comic Con is very telling.
- The staff must empty of the main ballrooms! We should not spend most of the day in long ass lines, just to get turn away because of folks sitting in there for the last 8 hours waiting to see Vampire Dairies. Make everyone clear out for each session! (someone got stabbed because of this)
- They need lockers so you can put your items away. It gets tiresome carrying a bunch of toys, comics, posters and figurines all day.
- Serve healthy food! All they serve is fast BAD food. Please serve wheat bread, baked chicken and turkey slices.
- To the vendors: When an item, like a X-Men figure that cost $14 bucks, sells out. Don't turn around and sell your sold out figure for $75 dollars.
- I'm declaring war on these slutty, broke ass Wonder Woman costumes! If you're going to dress like her, do it right!
- These movie studios use scantly clad women to giveaway promotions for movies, but where are the scantly clad men? We need men dressed up in sexy gear! It's not fair to see nothing but starlets. That's sexism!
- I want folks to stop wearing those demon/possessed eye contacts at Comic-Con. It ain't cute.
- Fashion does not exist at Comic Con.
- I can't wait for next year, but really... Comic Con should come to Los Angeles. We can handle it.
