Comic-Con Denver Style

Posted by on August 30, 2013

Halloween in May?

Does the Mile High altitude affect people in Denver? If not, why were thousands of adults and children wearing Halloween costumes in the month of May? As we walked alongside Bat Man, a junior Hulk, Wonder Woman, and Godzilla, we learned they were headed to the Denver Comic-Con convention.


Junior Hulk

Comic-Con is an event where the culture and pageantry of comic art forms are upright and visible. It gives the attendees an opportunity for full-out expressionism. Many of them dressed beyond the scope of Marvel and DC Comics. Which left me asking, “now… who is that?”

Streets of Color

It was absolutely fun! The downtown intersections were in a deadlock with hundreds of Comic-con attendees and looky-loos. People with cameras swerved in and around the Comic-Con crowd.

Some children stood in awe while others leaned in for a photo op. Rubber masks, flowing capes, green tights, spiked boots, and anything-but-natural hair color descended upon the Colorado Convention Center.

It was a spectacular vision. We were captivated by the excitement and followed the crowd. Unfortunately, it was a sold out event. Being the consummate tourists, we held our post at the entrance and ooh-ed and ahh-ed while the parade funneled inside.

Above All Else; Life Should Be Fun

Dikki has a plaque in his office that reads: Above all else; Life should be fun. Everyone at this event was doing just that! Of course, I couldn’t let the day end without standing next to my super hero counter-part. What fun!

      Who would you be? I’d like to dress up as Wonder Woman. Do you think it would take 2-Spanxs or 3?
