I Came, I “Conned”, I Conquered

Not many people are aware of the grandeur of effort put into the grand convention that is known as Comic Con. To the untrained eye, or the un-imaginative individual, Comic Con can appear to be a “massive nerd gathering” in which people “dress up in costumes” and parade around all day taking pictures. However, speaking as a first-time “conner” and first time cosplayer (that’s what those “costumes” are called by the way), Comic Con was actually much more than the stereotypical “massive nerd gathering”.
