Cool cosplay and fun outside San Diego Comic-Con.

I'm given a hearty greeting by the Mighty Thor. Last year this awesome guy cosplayed as Batman.

Here’s a bunch of fun photos showing activity outside the convention center during 2015 San Diego Comic-Con. There’s so much to see, to absorb, one could happily spend hours just walking around. Most of these pics are from this evening–Thursday. A few are from Wednesday.

Downtown San Diego has been my home for many years. My online activities reflect my love for writing, blogging, walking and photography.

    1. Most of downtown is involved. Hotels throughout the county are jammed at capacity. Comic-Con is the major focus on local news. The media coverage is massive around the world and shines a spotlight on San Diego, reaching billions of people. It has grown to be an enormous deal! And it keeps growing!

  1. Wish I knew where to look for you! Great pics!! Thanks for the photo tour of the stuff we will try to check out tomorrow. The Thursday Hall H panels were fabulous, now we need to see the sights around town- we had to make the most of inside the Con since the Fox 5 passes we won were for a single day only. Thank you, Fox 5!

      1. After we picked up our passes from Town and Country just after noon on Wednesday, we high-tailed it over to the Hall H line! I put up a couple blog posts about it- my daughter’s friend got in line about 5 am Wednesday morning, and I line sat for him and several others from around 2:00 until we received the wrist bands after 10:00 that night! The hard part was getting up at 4:30 Thursday morning to get back in line, ugh. It was a lot of fun, meeting people from around the world!
