Pre-Comic-Con Photos, give a glimpse into the Gaslamp before it’s transformed into Comic Con, seemingly, overnight.
As we all know Comic-Con 2018 begins this week. It’s Monday and the San Diego Gaslamp is getting ready. I came into the city early to see the seemingly overnight transformation. Some of my shots are on the ground, some are from my hotel room I have at the Hard Rock Hotel across from the convention center.
Even though not every event is set up yet, its still quite exciting to watch. Comic Con is my passion, and you can see more of my pictures on @capricefilms on Instagram and also on our Facebook page, which can be found on our main page.
This is just a small taste of what I am going to take pictures of during the week. I spent most of the day exploring the city, the city that I love so much at this time.
I will be here all week documenting, in photos the amazing things I come across. I hope you enjoy and feel free to leave comments. Enjoy!
The Long Beach Comic Expo is an expo in its own category. You never know what you will see or find there. Year after year I’ve attended and each year I’m more impressed. This year I attended all three days and I found some of the greatest comic books, met some great creative people and saw some out of this world cosplay.
These are just a handful of the cosplays I’ve seen and just had to snap a picture. Conventions are where you will see the most interesting people, creative. You can be whomever you want. That is what keeps me coming back.
This year I found that the small press booths had a lot of excellent comics to read, which is at some times a nice break from the mainstream comics that everyone reads.
Each Expo or Comic Convention is an opportunity to enjoy and be who you are without feeling any judgement. For that I am thankful, and I hope that each venue continues to grow and add different creative outlets to their shows. I know so many people who enjoy them. I’ve also introduced many people to these and they love it. They had no idea that they weren’t alone in their love of Star Wars, or The Fade Out by Ed Brubaker.
We are everywhere. We thank you for coming each year and look forward to Long Beach Comic Con which is September 8th to the 9th of 2018. I’ll be there. I’m more into the comic book, but I still have chances to see and experience things that I don’t in my day to day life.
If you get a chance to go to a convention or an expo or even to introduce someone to a new world, this is the way to do it.
