Salt Lake Comic Con 2013 Part 1

Posted by stephyc under: Uncategorized .

As the wife of a self proclaimed “geek”–you find yourself (or I do anyway) doing things you never dreamed of doing.  This past Saturdays was one of those times.  Never one to be late, I asked several times if we should get there early.  Keep in mind we already knew that 30,000 tickets had already been sold.  Jason reassured me that we would be there early enough.

Wanting to make sure we photographed our day we started like this…

We headed south about 8:30am to Salt Lake City, Utah for the Salt Lake Comic Con 2013.  As we drove by the Salt Palace the line was already getting long.

After parking the car and walking up a couple blocks the line had already grown by another block.  We should have stopped and dropped off a couple people to hop in line before parking the car.  Now we know for next time…

The line took over half an hour to circle around to the front doors of the convention center, but we made the best of it.

It was quite interesting to find when we walked in the front doors there really weren’t that many people…

Everyone was quickly shuffled into the exhibit hall, all I can say is “WOW!”  Immediately I felt the urge to look here, there, and everywhere.  Where do we start???  It was overwhelming, but amazing at the same time….

These previous photos and several others were taken in the first 5 minutes of being in the hall.  We were amazed by the dinosaur wandering the exhibit hall floor.  It was amazing to watch with some of it’s realistic movements.  Lizzi opted for a photo with it and was rewarded with a shake and bump on her side from the dinosaur that made her jump.

There were many people dressed up for the event including some favorites, some unknowns (to me anyway), and even some life-size figurines.
