Preview night has become one of my favorite nights at San Diego Comic-Con. It is the only night I can tolerate the Exhibit Hall, which becomes way too crowded once the con kicks off on Thursday. I didn’t go shopping this year (I had to be very disciplined). Check out photos of all the cool things I didn’t buy though!

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.
This was my first year attending Yaoi-Con.
The convention has been around for many years but it was usually held at San Francisco, California. This year, it moved to Long Beach, California and Fortune Cookie and I decided to check it out. I’m going to try and give the convention a fair assessment, as this was my first year in attendance and I will try not to be a jaded, bitter cookie about it.
First of all, if you don’t know what yaoi means, head on over to the Wikipedia page. If you don’t feel like reading the Wikipedia page, yaoi is boys loving each other manga and anime. Warning, there is a NSFW photo below the cut!
