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.
