The world’s largest and most kickass annual 4-day nerd fest in sunny San Diego, California featuring comic books, games, arts, movies, and various pop culture. This is where you’ll find the coolest and the hottest actors/actresses as well as the biggest dorks and geeks in the world under one roof. You will occasionally see some hotties in slutty costumes as well.
Sunday 30th August 2015 – York Racecourse
I’m surprised I’ve never been to a Comic Con before, it’s so my thing but I’ve never gotten round to it. This was York’s first one so I had to go, I went with my friends Kerry & Dan and the whole afternoon was one big nerdy gathering. The venue was filled with stalls of geeky merch including jewellery, clothes, art prints, old consoles, figurines etc. People were walking around in stunning costumes, there was a Jack Sparrow who pulled off the mannerisms perfectly, a few stormtroopers, a mad hatter, Marceline & PB and so many more. Really impressed with it, I wasn’t expecting much because York is much smaller than the usual hosts. They’re doing the same thing next year so I definitely recommend going if you live in the Yorkshire region and are interested in nerdy pop culture.
Anyway, I took a few snaps.
A Little Nerdy Haul
I’m horrifically skint at the moment but I wanted so many things, meaning, I had to be super picky about the few things I did buy. I already owned a Marceline Funko Pop figure so I bought a Princess Bubblegum to keep her company on my bookshelf. I also got a trinket box covered with The Legend of Zelda manga snippets and a pendant with Sally from The Nightmare Before Christmas on. Overall, I managed to only spend around £25 so I am very content with that.
Potential Cosplay ideas?
Next time, I am going to London, Birmingham or Manchester and I HAVE to cosplay! It would make the day a lot more fun. Listed some ideas below, can’t decide right now…
- Princess Zelda / Sheik
- Marceline The Vampire Queen
- Blake Belladonna
- Sally from The Nightmare Before Christmas
- Zero Suit Samus
- Princess Rosalina of Super Mario Galaxy
- Pokemon Nurse Joy
- Buttercup from The Powerpuff Girls
I’m kind of leaning towards Sheik at the moment because I love the whole princess turned badass look, but we’ll see.
