On Saturday, I attended my first comic con, and I can tell you right now, it did not disappoint. Seeing so many attendees dress up as their favorite superheros was definitely impressive.
Of course, I was also able to get down with my own geekiness, as I am a huge Joss Whedon fan. The first thing I did once I arrived on the scene was get in line for a Buffy the Vampire Slayer panel discussion made up of some of the writers, one actor, and one comic book artist (yes, there is a Buffy comic – You should pick one up!), but I digress.
After the Buffy panel, I spent some time taking pictures of the costumed fans with the lovely Benjamin Plackett, a fellow NYU sherpie and Wired intern. Benjamin posted some of those pictures on the Wired.com blog Underwire on Sunday night, but I had a few leftover, so I decided to post them here.
Don’t these people look great?
