The crowds were sparse, the vendors were fully stocked, and yet the con was a shadow of what it was in the past. I descended onto the con floor to see how the con looked for the celebration of geeks.
As you can see from the image, this is on a Saturday afternoon, the day where cons are hard to walk through as everyone and their momma, deluge into the vendors and more.
The vendors were helping bringing Alamo City Comic Con out of the stone age but one vendor stole the show by creating some unique groots and helped bring an unseen cool element that was needed badly at this con.
Sir Nick Justice stole that show for vendors as he brought unique hand made products that rivaled many of the high end vendors that brought thousands worth of product. His hand made products were fairly priced and nearly sold out during Alamo City Comic Con.
With the lack of unique cosplayers, two cosplayers brought down the house, and of course, the crowds with their fireworks status of cosplay. Miss Torii and Christina Mcdaniel brought the cosplay realm to their knees with their breath taking cosplays at the event and of course fun factor entertainment with the crowds.
As I continued walking around, I wasn’t echoed to see more of the con as only an HOUR and a HALF of easy walking around, I was quite disappointed with the way of the con marketed itself. Just six months ago, the con nearly had 100,000 fans for the weekend, I didn’t even seen 1/10 of that number this weekend at Alamo City Comic Con. I will be watching as improvements are made but will San Antonio to continue to embrace a comic con relying on elements from 2014 when they are in 2018. Time will only tell.
