Comic Con is everything you expect it to be - full of people in costume taking the whole thing very seriously. I took some pictures...
When I fist arrived I found these dudes. The guy in the shiny black stuff scared me a bit.
There was a talk going on with the director and cast of Misfits. Some of the audience were clearly big fans. That bloke who's also in This Is England was there being hilarious and Northern.
Check those weapons! The guy on the left was genuinely upset because part of his sword had broken off earlier in the day.
Who were these people supposed to be? No idea.
This person was so desperate for some "lovin" that he wore a Pikachu onesie and asked strangers for hugs.
This guy was in the 'steampunk' area and completely in character. After sitting playing on his iphone (which he had secured in the back of camera), he lifted up the plant and said "my little darling is being fed by the plant isn't he? growing big and strong isn't he?" and talking to that weird little skeleton. Yes, really.
How is this relevant?
I found a stormtrooper...
Of course samurai swords were for sale!
Along with loads of Japanese stuff, including shaved ice, which is actually really good.
These London school girls wished that they were Japanese school girls, as they perved over sexy Anime characters.
These guys were loving life.
The event was just too much for this one.
