This was my third time going to Comic-Con LA and I had a blast! It’s definitely the place to be if you love comics, artists, fandoms, and just want to have a fun weekend. There were so many incredible booths and amazing costumes! I even spied a Lady Oscar cosplay, but unfortunately didn’t manage to capture it in a photo. Hands down the best, costume for me was the girl who dressed as Dani in Ari Aster’s Midsommar. It was gorgeous and the girl herself gave me total Elle Fanning vibes (she should totally do a cosplay of Neon Demon or The Great!).
Hot Topic had the best Photo Op section, transforming a good portion of the Con into Nightmare Before Christmas graveyard. It was cute and very Tim Burton-like. However, I really missed Crypt TV being there! I really loved their promo materials and photo Op in the past. In fact, it seemed like this time there weren’t as many or as creative Photo Op areas in the Con, although I did think they had a lot more awesome shops and brands there. There was even a massage section where the masseuse was dressed as Geralt from The Witcher.
I also enjoyed the variety of food trucks they had at the Con. I ate lunch at Love Bird Fried Chicken, and I’m not joking when I say it was hands down the best fried chicken sandwich I ate in my life, ever. So props for that.
This time I stayed a lot longer at the Con than the previous years, so much so, that I ended up racking up 12,189 steps! Yes, I was completely dead the following day, just so ya know.
I didn’t find many comics I was interested in, and a lot of the horror comics were on the pricier side (maybe because they were vintage originals from the 70’s). But I was excited to have found the comic version of A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night, because I am a HUGE fan of the movie and its vibes. I also was excited that I found a Candyman mug (not even a bad price $10!) and Emily the Strange Lipstick in Rebel Red.
All in all, it was a fun time, but I really hope that next year Crypt TV will be back, because there were very few horror peeps otherwise. But I’m looking forward to next year’s Comic-Con (by then I’ll be ready to walk another 12k steps!).
