San Francisco Comic Con 2017

Sunday admission ticket!

I picked up Joseph a little after 9:00am. We got to the convention around 9:30am.  A quick trip through will call for our wristbands, a ride up the escalators and we were ready to go.

At 10:00am the doors opened, and we were allowed to go downstairs.

The entrance!

First cosplayers we spotted!

We then dashed over to the photo op area to buy a ticket for the Peter Capaldi photo op, which the main reason we were attending this convention.

That’s the guy…

More cosplayers!

Bruce Timm

McCree from the Overwatch video game

This gal was adorable in that she was at first surprised when I asked if I could take her picture, then asked me if I knew who she was. “Black Canary,” I answered, and she smiled and walked off, happy.

Robin, Deathstroke, Catwoman




About this time I had checked my pics and had to make a manual adjustment on the camera…

Green Ranger

Cosplayer! Not sure who the character is…

Kaylee and Captain Reynolds

The plushies looked pissed

Cosplayers!  Gaston and Belle, I think…

Free shrugs, demonstrated!

After I took this picture, Neal Adams asked if I liked the shit-eating grin, and then told me that they sell them at Walmart for $80.  “That’s a bargain!” I said, and then shook his hand and thanked him for his work.

Arcade area.  Some kid was playing Galaxian for a long time, so I didn’t get to play myself.

I think we missed the show…

Boop the Kittencorn, from Tee Turtle

The main reason, as I mentioned was to get a photo op with Peter Capaldi.  Which we did.

He was very friendly, asking what our names were, greeting us with handshakes and calling us by our names, and then I handed him my sonic screwdriver for the photo.  He even activated it with the switch as the photo was taken.  As we finished up, I got to say to him, “Thank you, Doctor,” to which he smiled again as we shook hands.

I admit I teared up a little.

Joseph even said his legs were still shaking as we waited for our prints of the photo.  He also said that he was never going to wash his hand ever again.

Overall, this was a fun convention, and I’m happy that San Francisco has it’s own comic-con again.  I’ll be back again next year.
