Well guys, the day has finally come, and we are more than excited. Wizard World has finally come to Tulsa and brought with it the first major Comic Con. We have Tokyo in Tulsa which represents the anime fandom with the best of them but we have yet to have a big ticket Comic Con come in. Finally we have an entire weekend of A-list celebrities and more vendors than you can shake a stick at. (click here for a schedule of all day tomorrow)
As is to be expected, the crowds were large but not nearly as big as they will be tomorrow. Everyone was buzzing around and all with smiles. The cosplayers were out in force (although I expect there to be many tomorrow) and there was a everything from Doctor Who to Dragon Ball Z. Make sure to look over the small gallery below to see all the awesome cosplay we found tonight and make sure to check back tomorrow night for even more!
The game rooms down below were already crawling with people playing some of the 100’s of free games there. If you get the chance make sure to check out the gaming floor and play a round or two and make some new friends! Love role playing games? They will be running DnD and Pathfinder all weekend long. Card games more your pace? Magic and others are also going most of the day! A great time for any table top gamer and just people who want to take a load off and laugh!
Now, let’s just talk over the look of the con. The convention center just looks like a different place all together. The main floor is opened up and just seems to be enormous! The vendors have it packed out and there is unique items, collectibles, and clothes from wall to wall! If you can not find what you want here then you either have very specific taste or you are looking for the wrong thing! Make sure to plan for time to walk slowly and oh! and ah! at all the fantastic artist and craft makers as well! This should take you hours to make it through just to appreciate all the awesome!
The Wizard World merch table also has some pretty cool things to grab. I personally will be picking up a patch and lanyard tomorrow (and in case you were wondering, no we were not paid to say this…we wish we were)
All in all it was an amazing first day and we can’t wait to check out some of the awesome panels tomorrow and just soak in all the love for our geek fandoms! Make sure to look out for us and check back tomorrow for more coverage and even more cosplay. For now, enjoy the small gallery!
