Fun stuff outside Comic-Con on Preview Night!

Scary cosplay outside in the Gaslamp promoting the TV series Medinah. It's late Wednesday afternoon. It's 2017 San Diego Comic-Con Preview Night!

I couldn’t go into the San Diego Convention Center for Preview Night this year. (I was fortunate to do so a couple times in the past.) So instead I walked around outside and took photos of the late afternoon fun.

Not much cosplay, but I did spot a couple instances of it. Mostly it was just people wandering about looking at the many pop culture attractions that are open free to the public. That’s one very cool aspect of San Diego Comic-Con!
