I mentioned last week that Comic-Con was making its annual appearance here in San Diego. It is always a marvelous show with thousands of people running around town in full regalia even if you don’t know who their costumes represent. I didn’t get down there until Sunday after many of the events were over, but it was still quite a show and quite a crowd! Vampires and zombies are always well represented and many of them, even if they are the living dead, show a surprising amount of skin…..
There are long lines for just about every presentation but they are always made more enjoyable by the unusual characters that are in every line…..
It seems to be very popular among couples and families. People fly in from all over – some even use airplanes!
Many don’t come in costumes they just attend the various presentations throughout the four days – but even some of them end up with masks and different faces…….
And of course, since this is an American gathering, there has to be…..lots of firearms of all sorts. Luckily, these are all of the sort that can’t hurt anyone.
And finally, there are always ambiguous sights where you can’t figure out whether the people are just families or whether they are the lead characters in some kind of weird show about clones……..
Hope you enjoyed our short visit to Comic-con. I only stayed there for an hour or two – it gets scary down there with all those monsters and vampires at night!
