Comic-Con rolled into San Diego last weekend and took over downtown. The convention is one of the biggest in the United States, drawing in over 125,000 attendees. The vast number of people walking around make the aisles of the convention center and the sidewalks surrounding it hard to navigate, but that doesn’t stop cosplayers from showing up in force. I imagine that wearing a costume at Comic-Con takes a considerable amount of planning because it would make getting around more difficult than usual, but it’s not a deterrent. I saw mash-ups, costumes from Inside Out, costumes from Star Wars, costumes from iZombie, and more.
Sadness, Inside Out
Scout troopers, Star Wars
Captain Rex, Star Wars Rebels
Frank and Athena, Tomorrowland
Imperator Furiosa, Mad Max: Fury Road

We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
