Arrow and WB didn't hold back at SDCC 14

After several years of attending San Diego Comic Con, our expectations have been raised. This year Arrow and Warner Bros met and then exceeded anything we may have thought we were going to see. 





I have to admit that I did not attend the original Arrow panel. I had my mind set on attending their Saturday night party. Plus I was dead-set that I was meeting the cast. That was one of my two SDCC priorities (the other was experience an Oculus Rift). With this in mind, we camped out from 8:30 pm till the general admission line let us scurry to the WB autograph line.

HBO's Survive the Realm Game Of Thrones Experience SDCC 2014

The event also featured the actual costumes from characters we all love and love to hate. Security was super tight around the displays. Maybe these pictures can help your GOT cosplay.














Like icing on a cake, the next section held a GOT themed Oculus Rift that was waiting to wisk us up to the top of the wall. Thankfully we got to ride the wall's elevator, because climbing is just beneath us. HBO added a fan to blow some chilling winds which helped this ride transport you to sickening heights.
