Lessons of Salt Lake Comic Con

8 lessons learned from last week's inaugural Salt Lake Comic Con

By Bill Frost
Posted // September 11,2013 -

Eight lessons learned from last week’s inaugural Salt Lake Comic Con:

8. Leave the babies at home.

7. If your cosplay costume requires an entourage and machinery to move, scale back.

6. Seriously, babies ruin everything.

5. The majority of film and TV stars are no taller than five feet. The rest are over seven feet.

4. A baby stroller is bad enough; a double-stroller doesn’t even fly at Walmart.

3. A neon utility belt is not flattering for a 48-inch waistline—for a 48-inch bustline, however, it’s fantastic.

2. You take your stupid babies to movie theaters and restaurants, too, don’t you?

1. There are now at least 50,000 reasons to think twice about making fun of geeks.

The babies are fine.

Deny the damn strollers.

Believe it or not, Comic Con was successful because of families! NOT because of the 40 year old virgins who don't bathe and play world of warcraft in their "Man Cave" in their mothers basement!  So get over it an deal with the kids and babies.   You were young once, and wish your parents took you to Comic Con.

But yes. easy on the strollers.

While it may have been annoying dodging baby strollers on the convention floor, I fully endorse children attending ComiCon. There is something truely magical when you see a childs face light up when they see their favorite charicter in real life (cosplay) at ComiCon. We were all children once lest we forget and what a magical time it was.

If anything, I believe Dan Farr Productions learned that ComiCon is far bigger than we imagined. Next year I imagine they will need to rent the entire exibit hall at the Salt Lake Convention Center to house the 50K plus people who attend.

ComiCon will only invite more celebrities year after year with bigger comic book talent and pop culture stars (Im looking at you Matt Smith). ComiCon is far larger than comic books, it is a cultural force and has become vastly popular world wide!

I think your baby-hating is simply the manifestation of your involuntary sexual abstinence.

Bring your baby!  Leave the strollers in the car.
