Top 4 Comic-Con Experiences

I don’t think I need to tell you I had an awesome time at Comic-Con. So much so that I’m looking forward to checking out the NYC one in the fall. It has grown in the past few years, from a dinky location near Penn Station/Madison Square Garden to the Javits Center.

Now back to my top 4 experiences at this year’s Comic-Con:

1.  The Vikings activation. Guests got to go through make-up, by actual make up artists, and then costume to create their own 30 second Vikings promo in front of two scenes, village and boat. Afterwards, they can see the final product that they can share via social media. As if all that wasn’t enough, everyone who completes the experience gets a souvenir plastic Das Horn drinking vessel with a map of all participating bars with drink specials.

2.  The Assassin’s Creed Activation. I’m not much of a gamer, unless you count Plants vs. Zombies 2 and Tiny Village on my iPhone, but this was activation was cool! Guests go through a gauntlet of daring trials similar to those in the game, based on what I see on their commercials. (Speaking of their commercials, they are so very cool that I wish I was a gamer!) On a side note, someone told me that the activation got shut down because someone got hurt on the obstacle course. That someone was a fairly fit guy wearing a Captain America costume, no less! I wish I had a video of it to share with you because one can’t make that story up. But here’s a video of the activation on YouTube.

3. Anomaly The Graphic Novel. This one you needed the highly-coveted Comic-Con pass to see them in action. Anomaly has this really cool, like out of this world awesome, app that brings their graphic novel to 3-D life. My pictures don’t do this amazing app any justice, so do yourself a favor by clicking through to their website, www.experienceanomaly.com/anomaly/.

4.  All the cosplay! For those of you who don’t know, cosplay = costume play. I thought I saw a lot but looking at Adam Savage’s, from MythBusters, post or tested.com, shows that I missed out on a lot. You can check out all my pics from Comic-Con here.
