Here’s one last batch of fun and funny photos from 2018 San Diego Comic-Con, including more great examples of cosplay.

I confess I didn’t stand in long lines for some of the more popular offsite attractions–I mainly just walked around. Watching people. Taking it all in. That’s what I love to do.

I hope you had as much fun as I did!

Now I’ll probably take a rest from blogging until next weekend. On Saturday, I’m going on a special tour at the San Diego Museum of Art.

Have a great week!

The very moment you enter, prepare to be mesmerized…

Late this morning I enjoyed Comic-Con by walking behind the San Diego Convention Center, then through The Experience by Petco Park. This first batch of fun photos is from the area behind the convention center.

As usual, I encountered a bunch of super creative cosplay and magic at every turn!

Early this morning, as I walked from Cortez Hill down to the Gaslamp, I was joined by others heading toward the convention center for the very first day of 2018 San Diego Comic-Con.

The offsites still hadn’t opened, and one or two that I passed didn’t appear to be quite ready. But long lines were already forming!

I spotted lots of great cosplay as I walked along Martin Luther King Jr. Promenade, then over the Harbor Drive pedestrian bridge to see the action behind the San Diego Convention Center.

Buses packed with Comic-Con attendees were arriving continuously from hotels around the city. By this afternoon, the streets and sidewalks will be jammed with crazy activity!
