Let Your Geek Flag Fly at San Diego Comic-Con!

San Diego Comicon

In late July each year, San Diego becomes aMecca for a wide range of pop-culture enthusiasts. Fan boys, and fan girls, comic book aficionados, sci-fi lovers, horror buffs, and fantasy nerds unite to embrace their collective quirks. They gather to meet and greet stars from cult classic movies and television shows, attend interesting panels dedicated to diverse subjects, have books and paintings signed by their favorite artists, and participate in cosplay contests, featuring elaborate costumes created with painstaking attention to detail.

Even if you’re shy about your inner-nerd, you can still have an awesome time at the Con! Cosplay is not required, but it does make people-watching more fun than usual. When you’re not observing or mingling with the massive crowds of people, stop by one of the hundreds of vendors’ booths and pick up trinkets, souvenirs, and gear from your favorite show, movie, or book.
