My husband has a college friend who is a known comic book illustrator and we got word that he was visiting locally for a convention, so we decided to go and met up with my Husband's friend and see what a comic convention is all about.
Having never been to one of these events before I was fascinated with all the adults and children who dressed up in costumes. Many of the outfits I did not recognize but some I did. Firedrake loved watching the artist drawing and even stop to watch some artists and ask questions. MarioFan found the whole experience over the top and some of the costumes a bit scary. The placed was packed and it was hard to move around because of all the people.
|Upon entering we saw an batman:)|
|I took this for my friends in England who are big Dr. Who fans (waves)|
|Stars wars R2D2|
|Various super hero's shields I only recognize Captain America|
|Masks. My kids didn't know any of them and I could only recall a couple|
|Firedrake had fun talking to an artist and seeing his work up close. He gave her some great tips on drawing while we were there.|
|Superman and I don't know who the side kick was but Firedrake was fascinated with her RED eyes|
|I thought this was good|
|There were also lots of old toys about. I pointed out to the kids the old Atari game system that was around when I was a kid. My family personally didn't own one:( But I remember playing it at friends houses.|
|One of the few stands I allowed the kids to take a free copy of the comic book as it was kid friendly. There were a few comics that I question the kid friendly content. Yeah I am a little over protective and cautious about those types of things. :)|
|aww who remembers gizmo:)|
|Is this a comic book character? If so I don't know who it is:( I am so out of touch these days, but maybe that is a good thing:)|
|Is this an Flash Gordon?|
|we got to watch a sculptor work on his comic book character in 3D, MarioFan thought it was too scary looking.|
