I look forward to going to Comic Con every summer.  Sadly I didn’t get a badge this year and was left to wander aimlessly outside the convention center.

Still I had a good time seeing the awesome Cosplay.

There are lots of free activities outside you don’t need a badge for but the lines tend to take over an hour each.

At the Thunderbirds exhibit I got my photo taken with the props and there was a blue screen photo area.

While waiting in line for Timeless I saw a ton of Cosplayers walk by.

It took a bit over an hour to get inside the Timeless exhibit which turned out to be a 3 minute ride which spun really fast and simulated artificial gravity.  While I had fun outside I miss buying comics books, meeting artists, and going to panels to learn out new movies and tv shows inside the con.

    Great cosplayer photographs! Think the silver surfer is my favorite! I’m sure you’ll get in next year. It’s just bad business for Comic Con to keep turning people away…

      They need a bigger convention center which the city is unable to fund. Or they need an entire week of comic con which the comic con president refuses to do. 🙁

      Glad you liked the photos! You will have to watch the Rocketeer so you can appreciate his costume better.

    We too wandered aimlessly outside. We even got free krispy kreme donuts and a free t-shirt! 🙂

      Lucky! I read about that area in the newspaper the next day.

    I’m surprised you didn’t get a badge this year. What’s the process to get a badge? I know it’s an online system but is there a trick to get tickets? The costumes all look so fun. Wonder how some of them managed to wear the heavier costumes in this heat wave 🙁

      You go to the comic con website at 9am Saturday and hope the spinning ball stops spinning and you can buy a badge. You can make a pact with friends to buy them tickets and they must do the same to increase your chances.

      Those costumed people are tough and stay tough and in character unless you run them over with a car.

      Maybe next year….

  5. You need a bigger network of people to get a pass! I thought about wandering around outside but I was just too lazy to wait in lines. And it was hot AF outside. I do like seeing pics though. Hubs and other family had plenty to show me and an acquaintance bumped into Conan. Dang that would have been cool. 🙂

      Did your network get you a pass? I was offered a pass to Conan’s show but that would have been a long wait.
