I went to my first-ever Comic Con over the weekend. It was... not quite what I expected. (I'm not a reader of comic books or fan of the movies, but I assumed there would be a *little* bit more pop culture to enjoy.) The celebs were very D-list (Kevin Sorbo and "The Big Show" from WWF circa 2000 were the only ones I recognized), the layout was a bit roughshod, and there wasn't much in the way of game-oriented stuff. The one game-centered talk I did make it to was with a panel made up entirely of MMORPG developers, and all they wanted to do was talk about the MMORPGs they are developing. I don't play MMORPGs, so I was bored.

But! The cosplay was generally pretty good, considering the small size of the event. Enjoy my terrible photos and feel free to comment. Captions are below the imgur play-box (if I know them). Since this is a public forum, I decided to refrain from any snarky comments that might offend :)
