Wizard World Comic Con 2017: St. Louis

Last year my son and I ventured to St. Louis for our first Comic Con, and had a blast. As soon as we left, he was planning his own costume for this year’s event. We attended Wizard World Comic Con 2017 this past Saturday, and he was fully costumed as a character named Robin from the game series, Fire Emblem. Of course, being 17, he ditched mom and dad as soon as we arrived at the convention center. But it wasn’t a problem. Husband and I had a great time, wandering around taking pictures. We also ate at one of St. Louis’s best Italian restaurants, Charlie Gitto’s Downtown (where toasted ravioli was invented). Plus, I had my palm read for $10. (You’ll be happy to know I’m a joyful person with a long life ahead.) Here are some highlights of the day–More next week of pairs and groups, too. So many great costumes!

I confess that I don’t know who most of these lovely people are supposed to be, so I may just make up names for them. Feel free to correct me in the comments. Many thanks to all the gracious folks who let me take their photographs.

    Laura, what wonderful pictures; your son is adorable, and this looks as if it was a joy of a time. I have never been west of upstate, PA, but many of my friends are from the St. Louis area.
