For those of you that don’t know, my partner (and Co-Founder of the site) Dylan Fields came out to California this last weekend to attend his first San Diego Comic-Con. For me, it was number eight or nine. We had talked about covering the event for the site but thought that he should come out and get a feel for the event first. Our goal is to try and cover it next year. While we didn’t sit through the butt-numb-a-thon that is “Hall H” this year, to bring you all the breaking news, it doesn’t mean we weren’t active.
We spent the entirety of our time there handing out Man, I Love Films and MILFcast promotional items and documenting the sites and sounds of the event. Below you’ll find a large collection of pics and videos that we took to help try and capture the essence of this crazy fun yearly event. We did this for all of you out there that couldn’t make the mecca. Hope you enjoy it…
While we didn’t hit all the star studded panels, it’s not like there weren’t any celebrities to be seen. Apologies for the quality of some of these. Here’s a few of the celebrities we crossed paths with:
David “The Hoff” Hasselhoff
Bud Bundy (aka: David Faustino)
He’s there every year but it never gets old seeing Lou “Hulk” Ferrigno.
(Bones co-star Emily Deschanel was just out of frame)
And, of course, Gene Simmons and his hair!
Gene was plugging his new comic book which starred these guys…
Let’s look at some more costumes as that really is one of the funnest parts of Comic-Con!
For those of you that don’t know what Cosplay is, it’s basically just short for “Costume Play” and there is PLENTY of it at SDCC every year. Here’s some of the stuff that was so good we had to snap pics of it:
The best of the day was easily this Engineer from Prometheus. He actually looked better than the ones in the film and had my partner Dylan a little freaked out. We actually couldn’t figure out if he had made a great costume or was paid to be there.
Check out the video at the bottom of this post to see how creepy this guy was walking around the con!
Dylan and I loved this understated Wolverine.
Though, this guy definitely fit the role a little better.
Still, my favorite was this dude who went old school Weapon X!
Got a kick out of this fresh take on good old Indiana Jones.
Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.
…and this group of hall of fame bad guys!
This Earthworm Jim gets the “underappreciated” and “originality” awards. Plus, he let me hold his gun!
These guys were paid to do the photo op but, while Loki was okay, this RDJ impersonator was pretty awesome.
So good, in fact, I’ll give you two!
These kids were just awesome!!!
I didn’t want to bother The Dark Knight while he was having a sandwich but had to get a pic with him.
No, that’s not me… as far as you know.
One of many Wonder Women cruising around the convention center.
Casual Friday on the Deathstar!
This Loki was a fan of the MILFcast.
Bender is a fan too.
Scantily clad women were, of course, out in full force!
We have a tie for least effort put into a costume. It goes to this ensemble (which had nipples on the back???)…
…and Card Board Box Guy (Minecraft???).
AROUND THE CON.
Here’s some miscellaneous shots from around the main floor and outside the convention center:
I had to jump in the anti-hero line-up.
Dylan gets the action figure treatment…
…as do I!
Django Unchained had a sweet a little western town set-up.
Across the street at Petco Park (aka: Padres Stadium) there was a simulated Zombie outbreak to traverse.
This little advertisement was set-up across the street.
Complete with real flesh-eaters!!!
This booth was like a geek collage. It had Ghost Rider‘s bike, a life size Edward Scissorhands and Superman‘s suit.
The Walking Dead booth had this sweet Season 3 photo-op with Michonne and crew.
WETA was not to be outdone with one of the coolest looking booths in the entire room!
This was one of our favorite art collections of the day.
Sideshow always has a sweet plot and showcases some of the best movie themed statues in the industry.
This was a highlight as all seven (Mark) versions of the Iron Man suits were on display.
It was so big, it took two shots to capture the whole thing!
Anybody want a mustache ride?
The Lego art was going on all over the place and it was pretty amazing!
(Imaginary) life size Optimus Prime!
The sweet ride from Total Recall.
Looper had a tiny set-up…
…but it was pretty cool.
And, finally, the coolest shoes we saw all day!
Here are some videos we took just walking around the main floor. Check them out if you want to get a feel of what you might see if you were to attend. DEFINITELY, check out the Engineer. Enjoy:
