San Antonio Whovians Assemble!

on June 28, 2013

Last weekend was big for us geeks,  with the release of World War Z and the Texas Comicon 2013 in San Antonio and I am pleased to announce the Whovians were out in full force.

Living in San Antonio and being a Whovian can be challenging, my husband and I seem to have no one to talk to about our passion and have to reach out to our fellow Whovians spread amongst the stars and across the internet to connect.

Well last Saturday made us feel at home in our own city, seeing so many Who fans in once place was a very welcome change to our everyday struggle to find someone to share our stories and love.

We were finally able to talk to people about Dr Who (I had a fun conversation about Disney and Dr Who with one the merchants who was wearing a plushie Tenth and a yoda Disney pin) and there were even a few Doctors among the crowd.

Bowties are cool- 11th Doctor

Would you like a Jelly Baby? 4th Doctor

This is my favorite a switched gender 10th and Rose, but I LOVE the Tardis hat most!

If you were looking for a guy in a union jack, here he is!

And the scariest Dr Who species ever invaded the convention, so whatever you do, don’t blink!

So okay guys, I now you are out there and would love to be able to share all my Whovian geekery with you, you have been seen so please come out and share San Antonio 🙂

I hope to be seeing all of you around!

Now on a side note, yes, I love Who, but lets be honest, I am a full fledged geek and do not love just one thing geek. So here are all the other totally awesome costumes seen at the comiccon that I love. I will totally be dressing up for the next Comiccon in October, can’t wait!

    Seems like in every Comic Con or other superhero gathering, Princes Leia and Luke show up in some form or fashion. Must be an unwritten law in the journals of comic book fans “Superheros assemble Princess Leia, are you ready to deploy?” 😉 BTW, great pics!

    While trying to find somewhere in San Antonio that might carry Jelly Babies I found your post.
