So, Karen and the kids and Chuck and I hopped on the Trolley this morning and headed downtown to Comic-Con. If you are unfamiliar with what this is visit http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/San_Diego_Comic-Con_International or http://www.comic-con.org/cci/ . It is THE largest convention that San Diego hosts and apparently has gotten so big, it may have outgrown SD's convention center. It pretty much takes up the whole downtown area now. It is next to impossible to get tickets to get inside the convention center but you can enjoy yourself by just walking around outside and seeing everything there is that is going on there. What is really enjoyable is seeing all of the inventive costumes that people come up with. Everything from cartoons to anime to TV to movies to comic books to computer games. I really wasn't familiar with a lot of the characters but did appreciate the costumes anyway. I took lots of pictures so enjoy!
Extra had a stage behind the convention center where casts of shows would come out to be interviewed. We were a little too early for this but saw Renee Bargh of Extra interviewing someone who must be a Johnny Depp wannabe.
