We went to Long Beach Comic Con last weekend. Had a good time. Katie dressed up as Professor Trelawney, we found some cool art and hit some panels, and J. spent as much time as he could playing laser tag and looking at remote-controlled Astromech droids.

10 Years of Long Beach Comic Con! (2018) – K²R

Back in 2009, I attended the first-ever Long Beach Comic-Con, an event that filled the void left when Wizard World cancelled WWLA at the last minute. I had a good time, and it had a lot of support from the industry, but I wondered how long it would last. Ten years on, LBCC is still …

Most of the cosplay photos are really just snapshots, though I did spend some time composing shots of my wife as Professor Trelawney from Harry Potter. This one came out the best.

A few scenic shots taken around the Long Beach Convention Center during Long Beach Comic Con over the past weekend.

The first is a new walkway that connects the main entrance to the convention center with a theater around the far side.

The second is a building lit up by the sunset reflecting off a building behind me.

The third is a mural on the side of the convention center *under* the theater.

Spent the weekend at Long Beach Comic Con.

10th year of the con, still smallish but very comics & art focused (unlike other “comic cons”).

7YO was fascinated by the droid builders as always, and played a lot of laser tag. Wife cosplayed as Prof. Trelawney. I went to see Marv Wolfman & Christopher Priest talk about their careers as writers and editors. We bought some art cards, prints, toys & discount books.

My wife has been talking about cosplaying Professor Trelawney for a while now. She put together the pieces for a costume over the last couple of weeks, and wore them on Saturday at Long Beach Comic Con.

It was a huge success! Lots of people recognized the character and wanted photos. We even ran into “Mad-Eye” Moody on the way into the convention!
