On Thursday night at Comic-Con, we happened to score tickets to a party hosted at Bang Bang with Elijah Wood as DJ! It was a surreal experience. We loved dancing the night away with fellow geeks and Wood’s actor friends– and the club had exquisite decor. We couldn’t help but take a bunch of pictures of the bathroom…

On Friday, we spent most of the day waiting in line for Saturday Hall H (worth it!), but we managed to sneak away for some cool stuff.
Some rad figures on the floor at San Diego Comic-Con this year.
This is a busy week! So, I’m just going to dump photos here from our daily Comic-Con adventures. Enjoy!
If you’re in the Salt Lake area, check out Salt Lake Comic-Con Fan-Xperience, Thursday through Saturday. If the event is anything like last year’s Salt Lake Comic-Con, you’re in for a treat. This has quickly become one of the largest comic conventions in terms of attendees, and last year’s crowd was unbeatable. Part of the magic of comic conventions is meeting like-minded peeps, and last year we were surrounded by so much enthusiasm and homemade cosplay, our hearts nearly exploded. This year, both Jeff and I will be working at the False Positive booth (#1811), so come by and say hello and snag some free schwag. We’ll even hook you up with a free sketch from the comic’s talented creator. See you there!
At Salt Lake Comic-Con, we had the fortune of finding some of the coolest chocolates ever, made by The Truffle Cottage. We loved them so much, we bought beautifully molded chocolates in the shape of zombie body parts, a companion cube, and a Death Star. And those were so good that when Halloween rolled around, we giddily bought even more unique chocolates from the talented chocolate crafters.
This place is the real deal. Not only are the chocolates lovingly crafted with striking detail, but they are absolutely delicious and come in unique flavors like strawberries and cream and pumpkin pie. As the holidays approach, keep an eye out for gems from The Truffle Cottage. They’re sure to come up with new creations that will make perfect gifts from the holidays. As examples of their awe-inspiring work, here are some of the chocolates they showcased at Salt Lake Comic-Con (now available on their website).
With my favorite holiday fast approaching, some of you may be scrambling to throw together an easy costume. Not everyone can obsessively plan out Halloween months in advance (like I do), and maybe you just want a clever costume for a Halloween party. Here are some easy costume options that can all be donned by women and gents alike.
1. Dr. Who
What You Need:
- Collared shirt
- Tweed jacket
- Red bow tie
With a few easy-to-find and inexpensive items, you’re in business as Dr. Who. Think Geek even offers a Dr. Who quick costume set with a fez and bow tie. It doesn’t get any easier.
What You Need:
- Name tag
- Red tie
- White collared shirt
- Fake blood
Muss up your shirt and tie so you look nice and disheveled from running for your life. Don’t forget to put a red ink stain on the shirt pocket. Bonus points for adding a cricket bat to the ensemble.
Over the weekend, Salt Lake City had its first comic convention, with record-breaking attendance for an inaugural geek fest. At Salt Lake Comic-Con, Stan Lee and William Shatner showed up, along with some lesser-known celebrities, but the highlight of the con was the fans. Because so many fans purchased tickets, the event had to move to a larger convention center– tallying about 70,000 tickets sold and turning away thousands more after the event sold out. The fan energy and enthusiasm was contagious– there were so many costumed individuals happily crammed together and swooning over the booths. We’ll post on some cool stuff we got from the Con in a later post, but here are some of our favorite pictures from the con. Enjoy!
