2018 was Los Angeles Comic Con’s 8th year where over 106,000 fans joined to celebrate pop culture in the City of Angels. Taking place days before Halloween, the costumes were in full force ready to engage in memorable interactions with guests, artists, and vendors. Sometimes three days just isn’t enough as there were plenty of activities and panels to attend.

The exhibit floor offered a wide variety of likings for all. Whether you were feeling like a hero from a galaxy far, far, away, or going on adventure to Mordor, there was a vendor that you can go to satisfy your thirst for blue milk and go for that second breakfast. If you were feeling like getting a one of a kind souvenir, the artist alley is sure to deliver fulfillment for that urge. Industry artists are readily available to showcase their wonderful talent where fans can pick up a piece of it. The main stage always has the spotlight on and panels are happening throughout the day right on the floor. No need to queue up in lines to enter a room to hear guests speak. It is right there on the exhibit floor mixing it up with the fans.

Attendee numbers are climbing from previous years. The trend is not going backwards as each morning before the floor is open, there were a sea of fans ready to step afoot into the exhibit floor. It is sure quite the spectacle to see your favorite characters worn by cosplayers eagerly waiting at the base of the escalator waiting for security to let the floodgates wide open. Once open, staff and personnel has provided an exceptional job at keeping things in order and maintaining a pleasant experience. 

Los Angeles is a favorite amongst fans and each year they don’t fail to deliver. The month of October changes the mood for cosplay as it gears ready towards the aspects of Halloween. There are more goblins, ghosts, and ghouls on the floor than any other time of the year. It is a family friendly event and is easily a weekend getaway for fan of popular culture.

Los Angeles Comic Con will return in October 2019.
