Keith, at one of my default "go here when you need to see a friendly face" places during this insanity.

Darabont and Struzan were signing posters for The Walking Dead in a set built to look like a zombie-overrun house. Over Darabont's shoulder is a fake corpse.

Here's a wider shot of the Walking Dead booth. Video screens were rigged up behind the windows showing footage of shuffling zombies. Harry Knowles is giving an interview.
The 'Alien' booth
The "Alien" booth
Promoting the Blu Ray set of the Alien films are Weylamd-Yutani hibernation booths, like those from the original 1979 film. People could lie down in the four booths. I wanted to, but the line was massively long each time I tried.
Brent Spiner of 'Star Trek: The Next Generation'
Brent Spiner of "Star Trek: The Next Generation"
I didn't say hi to Spiner. I should have, as well as tell him about the really fun July 4th weekend screening of Independence Day (the film where he's used as a speaker phone) that Portland had; he would've appreciated it. Over his shoulder are his Star Trek co-stars Marina Sirtis and Michael Dorn.

A Jack Sparrow cosplayer at least seemingly reasonably approves of Alice in Wonderland cosplayers.

The Supernatural and Troublesome Ectoplasmic Apparition Management, a SoCal performance troupe. All hail steampunk. Also all hail recycling, which is sort of steampunk but sort of not.

I've contributed to a campaign like that before, for the late-Nineties series Cupid.

Peter David, signing at the Boom! Studios booth, commiserates with a fellow parent. (The parent had had a small toy Gumby. Peter pointed out that it's a hazardous toy to have around kids. "I wouldn't want anything to happen to my kids!" he was saying when I took this shot.)
And this was only PART of the crowd.

I stayed in Marriott's south tower. Next door: the San Diego Convention Center. Beyond is the Hilton (with a Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World ad on its side) and the Coronado Bridge. I shot this from the 44th floor of the Hyatt.
