Logan and his friend Q trying out some of the games.
Sunday Logan and I traveled downtown to see WizardWorld Tulsa. A popular culture event. Popular culture in this case goes toward superhero movies, videogame characters, cartoon characters, and so on.
A car from same famous Zombie movie that I didn’t see.
I find it fascinating although I miss most of the cultural references.
Cool little Jurassic Park Jeep.
I gravitate toward the cars. I get cars. Mot of them anyway. Many of the cars you could sit in them and get your photo taken. No thanks. No way my face adds anything to the car.
Remember back to the future? Remember the Delorean?
And the Ghost Busters car. We watched the new Ghost Busters on video this weekend.
A big reason that people go to a Comic-Con is to Cosplay, or dress up as your character. To see and be seen and get your photo taken. I have trouble walking up and asking somebody if I could take their pic.
I told Logan that next year we need to Cos-Play. I think I’ll show up as Walter White, the chemistry teacher gone meth cook from Breaking Bad. I love that guy. Talk about pure evil. Logan said he is just going to get a mask.
The Tulsa World has a photo gallery with some of the Cos Play costumes.
This is our third year to attend Wizard World. Check out our 2014 and 2016 visits.
Big excitement this past week in Tulsa. Wizard World brought their Pop Culture Convention to Tulsa, 2014 Comic Con Tulsa, for the first time ever. I didn’t know exactly what it was and neither did Logan but I bought us tickets anyway. We had to go check it out. It was a good thing that we bought them several weeks in advance because the Saturday single day tickets sold out.
So what is Comic Con. Welllllllll, it is about a certain segment of pop culture having to do with super hero movies, comic books, and art and books having to do with that certain segment of culture. Fans show up in costumes portraying their favorite characters. I didn’t know hardly any of them. Except for like Mario and Luigi, Freddy Krueger, and others. Basically super heroes, and super villains and a sprinkling of cartoon characters. Logan was my guide, he knew who everybody was supposed to be.
There were also booths were you get autographs, for a price, of actors and authors. Again, I didn’t know who any of them were except for William Shatner. And unsurprisingly Logan knew most of them. What a drag attending Comic Con with old Dad uh?
There was a fantastic array of merchandise of all prices between sold. Everything from art work and books to costumes to weapons (costume weapons).
We had a good time and are planning to go again next year. They are already selling tickets!
