San Diego Comic Con 2015

Growing up in San Diego Comic Con was something I totally took for granted. Of course every year people dressed up in fun costumes and ran amok in the streets of downtown San Diego! Doesn’t everyone have one of those?

Every year it has gotten bigger and bigger, and San Diego Comic Con 2015 drew in not just more people in more costumes, but crazy giant outdoor props, like this giant snowglobe and enough religious protestors that they got counter-protestors of their own. Dang! Our convention is so big it’s protestors have protestors!

One of the best parts of Comic-Con is how inclusive it seems to be. Old, young and everyone in between seems to get in on the fun. Though there are tons of real celebrities to be seen inside of the convention, anyone who puts enough work into their costume gets to be a celebrity for a day. Being chased down by fans and asked for photos every few minutes. I personally chased down this lady Rufio calling out “Rufio! Rufio! Rufiooo! for two blocks before I caught up with her to get a photo. And one little princess was so entranced by meeting Sailor Moon that she knocked her to the ground with a gigantic hug.

Truth be told I was almost as excited as that little girl when I found a couple of Quidditch players who let me hold their snitch.

How many characters you can recognize at Comic Con is definitely a good meterstick for your nerd cred. There are some favorites that nearly anyone would recognize and other people dressed so obscurely that we had no chance of recognizing them.

Though the crowds are nuts and the sun is beating down, how could you not want to go roam the streets with Totoro, My Little Ponies, and any other pop culture icon you can think of?! Though Tom and I don’t ever actually go INTO the convention, San Diego is worth a visit in July just for the people-watching that the comic convention brings.

Measure your nerd cred! How many can you recognize?

I think of California as officially "home" but can usually be found a lot closer to the equatorial belt. After finishing a Masters program in 2011 I found myself trying to decide between a couple of different high-powered career options. I decided I wasn't quite ready to "grow up" and went with an entirely different plan which involved selling off everything I owned with my partner Tom and buying a one-way ticket to Colombia. Our plan was to travel "Till The Money Ran Out" and then go home to start our grown-up lives. Instead, we started our own app development company on the road and have been criss-crossing the globe, traveling, working, eating spicy food and refusing to "grow up" ever since.
