It's been almost a decade since my (Silver) last visit to a comic-con. The last time was back in Helsinki, Finland and while a long time has passed, I remember fondly the halls crowded with geeks, cosplayers, and artists alleys. I watched passionate panels and of course browsed through the endless amount of merch that you just can't leave without. So I was a little bit nervous to go to the Lisbon comic-con this year as I was afraid my nostalgia wouldn't hold up - it couldn't possibly, right? Right?
Well, I'm glad to tell you that this year's Comic-con in Lisbon was even better than what I expected: I have never seen so many happy nerds in one place, going apeshit bananas about pop-culture. It really was a tribe of awesome enthusiasts. Even though the day was hot enough to boil your brain, the mood of the event was off the roof. My favorite cosplays were from Lord of the Rings, Critical Role, and Star Wars, and I couldn't get enough of the artist alley that reminded me of a fantasy bazaar with all its colorful adventurers and hustling merchants.
I wish I'd taken more photos, but I was kind of overwhelmed by trying to see everything. Let's try next year again with bit more photos of us too.
