Comic Con is an annual comic convention held in various cities ever year but one of the biggest is held in San Diego, California. For many nerds, this is an annual homecoming. Each year, tens of thousands of geeks (and wannabe or soon-to-be geeks) descend on Comic-Con International to enjoy the various pop-culture pleasures of the conference. Fans, geeks and nerds alike also get the chance to truly be themselves. Whether they’re into Star Wars or Spider-Man or The Walking Dead, there’s something for every geek’s taste, and more. People have the chance to be proud of their hobby’s and passions. But sometimes having free reign to be oneself has its downside.
We really just want to change out of our costumes so we can see the show without getting stopped for photos every two minutes.

To really get in the Comic-Con scene, a representative from Wired.com was present for the conference to photograph the good, the bad and the ugly, to find out what people are wearing and what they’re geeking out over. Crazy!
