SDCC 2016: Sights and Swag

WHAT UP INTERNET?!

If you’re all about living the ConLife, you know the “post-Con blues” are a legit phenomenon which can trouble even the most seasoned ConLife connoisseurs. Although you spend the majority of your time eating terribly, spending way too much money, hardly sleeping and in line while attending a convention like SDCC, there’s nothing quite like the spectacle of San Diego Comic-Con and it’s an event I will never miss. Given the plethora of activities to see and the massive amounts of people descending upon the San Diego Gaslamp District, being able to actually experience everything SDCC has to offer is a logistical impossibility.

While you may not be able to actually partake in every photo op available or try out every VR experience available during the Con, it is possible to see-at least, passingly-many of the unique events and structures which materialize only during the Con of all Cons. With this in mind, I’ve included many of the photos I snapped during SDCC 2016 for those who may be interested in seeing some of the sights the crew and I encountered during our adventures.

Didn't occur to me to take a photo in front of this guy for scale. I think I went up to his shoe..

If you’re interested in some of the other stuff your Bro got into, feel free to give me a follow on Twitter and Instagram-you know I’m always posting throwback pictures! I also accrued a tremendous amount of free swag during SDCC 2016 and in the video below I go through it. If you aren’t following your Bro on Twitch you should be, since next week I plan to give away a SDCC swag bag on stream! Until next time, Bros!
