Super Blake hits Comic Con …

26 Jul

Blake Dean on the Comic Con prowl.

This past weekend, we took Blake down to San Diego for Comic Con – the international convention for all things super-hero/comic book/overall rad. Granted, we didn’t actually have tickets. Instead, a good friend, Doug Kline, (author of the Unauthorized San Diego Comic Con Survival Guide and the geek behind www.PopCultureGeek.com), was good enough to share inside info on all the free events happening around the venue that an almost-3-year-old would love. He didn’t disappoint. The experience was pure heaven for Blake Dean, who walked the event fully clad in his red Super Blake cape, making beautiful memories at every turn.

Darth Hottie. Er, Hot Vader. Whatever. Blake was happy.

I have to admit – I’m not really into comic books. But that point is so irrelevant when it comes to Comic Con itself, where there are costumed people, parties, and mayhem at every turn. My favorite moments:

People watching: Everywhere we looked, we saw super heroes and icons, from Spider Man and Darth Vader to Dexter victims and Beetlejuice. There was never a dull moment. We could have watched the madness for days.

Spidey! (This sighting earned me Top Mom honors for sure)

Getting people-watched ourselves: Blake’s cape won him some adoring fans; he got photographed numerous times for different FB pages and blogs, which of course made my mama tail feathers fan out in pride. Someone even asked which comic Super Blake is from. Um … the one where Blake puts a home-made cape on! :)

Trucking it
: The super-hero themed monster trucks at Marvel Monstergeddon were amazing

Monster Truck heaven.

Biting it: Blake could have watched folks fall off the mechanical shark at the Shark Night 3D event all day long

Super Blake = shark bait.

The swag: We got fun free food, stickers, tattoos and toys at every turn, including a rad Transformer and stuffed Angry Bird plushie

Storm Trooper

And the best part: Seeing Blake’s eyes light up literally everywhere he looked.

It was an amazing weekend and just what we needed to remind ourselves of all the simple sweetness all around us. (Special thanks to Nancy’s Vacation Rentals for having such rad pads.)

Thanks, Comic-Con – see you again next year. I already know what I’m going to wear … (I’m pretty sure I already have that skirt and those boots ;)

Astrid: How to Train Your Dragon (a.k.a. Me at next year's Comic Con)
