Comic-Con Recap: Friday


Graphic-Tee: Jinx
Skirt and belt: Old Navy
Sandals: Payless

I apologize for the delay, but I'm finally getting around to posting the rest of my Comic-con recaps. My Friday outfit included another geeky graphic tee. This time it's the fictional fast food joint (that you probably shouldn't eat at) Cheesy Beards from The Guild. I got it at last years Comic-Con and it's a conversation starter when I wear it. When someone asks me about this shirt, sometimes I'll tell them it's a regional franchise and that I got the shirt from a friend. :P

I started Friday by walking down 6th street where I got free coffee and pins from the Falling Skies street and then I made my way over to where Marvel Comics were displaying their monster trucks. You heard right, monster trucks. Next year during Comic-con, Marvel is going to present Monster Trucks Live.

It looks like it would be an awesome event to experience and they even had some of the trucks on display.

Again, I spent most of the day walking the floor or outside the convention center. It's way better than having to wait in line for panels, which I ended up doing the next day. 
I also have a really cool celeb sighting. My brother and I were leaving the exhibit floor when I saw over by a Starbucks cart, Edgar Wright. A favorite of my brother and I, he directed Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. He was just there getting coffee, so my brother quickly got out his Polaroid camera and got a picture with him.

Edgar and my brother
Unfortunately I didn't get a picture because I was dumb and took too long figuring out how to use my brothers camera. I was just too director struck. Ah maybe next time.

Southpark Bus
Adult Swim Ice Cream Trucks
Adult Swim had ice cream trucks that handed out Ben and Jerry's ice cream bars.
Don't Believe the Hype!
We bumped into the Venture Bros Monarchs and Futurama's Fry at Smashburger.

Later on my brother and I went over to the House of Blues to check out Donald Glover (of Community) where he performed as Childish Gambino.  It was an awesome show (he had a full band to back him up) and he's  just super talented. Not only does he act and write (he used to write for 30 Rock),  but he has a great singing voice and is a pretty good rapper. Plus anyone that randomly name checks Shining Time Station in a rap song is awesome in my book.

I'll be back tomorrow for my Saturday recap and a post just on the food I had there. Nom nom!

So many awesome pictures! Wish I could've been there this year. I'm stalking the Comic Con 2012 page trying to find out when next year's tickets go on sale. Hoping the Doctor Who folks will come back!
