Day 2 of San Diego Comic-Con was spent mostly wandering around the off-site events, including all the activations at the PETCO parking lot. I got to visit the Ice Cream Citadel where the Lich King (from Blizzard’s Hearthstone) presided over his shop as people lined up for free ice cream. Surprisingly, the Deadquarters—The Walking Dead experience— didn’t have a long line and I decided to check it out. It was a nice outdoor lounge, too much sun for me personally, but there was free Mountain Dew and a cool bunker experience!
Every year, a tiny, beautiful part of Los Angeles gets transformed into a fantasy realm for the annual Labyrinth of Jareth Masquerade, produced by Sypher Studios. The event occurs in just one week, on August 5th and 6th, 2016,
Now in its 17th year, the masquerade ball is in its second year at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel, a storied historic building in downtown Los Angeles, built in 1923 in the Renaissance and Mediterranean Revival style, and home to the early years of the Academy Awards ceremonies.
We are giving away a pair of tickets to both Friday and Saturday of the masquerade! See bottom of article for how to enter!
San Diego Comic Con—aka, Nerd Christmas in the Summer— came and went. I attended for the entire weekend this year and snapped a handful of photos of cosplayers and all the cool things around the convention. There were way more that I missed, of course. The heat was brutal this year and I am too much of a wuss to walk in extreme heat. Fortunately, there were still tons of things to see and do. Check out the photo slideshow below! You can also view the photos on our Facebook page as well.
As a rabid Jane-ite, one who considers themselves an expert in all things Jane Austen, I was pleased as a Regency spiked punch to be able to attend the Jane Austen Evening this year, which is held annually at the Pasadena Masonic Lodge by the Society for Manners and Merriment.
