Comic Con

I meet with a group of children who need a daily check-in at work after lunch most days. One has said they want to go to Comic Con and use their Christmas money for that. As the conversation went on it became clear the reason they had never been was because their parent wasn't interested so we've decided to plan a class trip as it will be a summer weekend when the CC is on.

When my daughter was interested in something I still went along even if it was of no interest to me.

What did you do for a family member despite not liking it yourself?

I've been to the Football, of various codes.

We went to a football match once with some people we met on holiday who came up to see a match and popped in to see us in the process.

Other than that, shopping.

By the way. What is "Comic Con"?

We've got some old Beano and Dandy albums on top of our wardrobe.

Comic Convention. It's a lot of fun, and, yes, I have been to one. Eldest son treated me to one a couple of years back. Many of the people who attended even dressed up as their favourite Characters. Often there is more than a smattering of "Star Fleet Personnel" along with a Klingon or two. Even a few Daleks. The have interviews with various celebrities from some of the popular genres. Our particular one, which was the attraction, had Jonathan Frakes as one of the celebrities. We even had a private "meet and greet" after the event which was interesting. We educated him on ANZAC day. He's a very likeable person. There is opportunity to purchase various mementos and other stuff, not unlike any other trade fair.

Would I go again? Hell yeah! I've seriously considered (given the time and resources) building my own Dalek. (Full size using an electric Wheelchair as a base) They do have a contest for the best costume. Comic con (despite my description) is not only the realm of Sci fi, but also other popular culture like Game of Thrones, and other online gaming communities.

Greetings Fellow Geek!

I make my brother suffer enough through my taste in comedy, so I watch "The Thick of It" with him even though it's boring.
