CraneCon 2015 – Photo Gallery

There are probably only two things that are truly unstoppable in this world, the forces of nature and geeks determined to do good.  Yesterday in the shadow of Swedish furniture ingenuity AJ from Energy 103.7, a local San Diego radio station, called out again for his fellow geeks, nerds, dweebs, dorks and all other manner of awesome human beings to come out to the second CraneCon, his own mini Comic-Con.  Part of the annual AJ’s Kids Crane event where AJ ascends to the sky in a lift to live out the next week dedicated to raising money and gathering toys for the children at Rady Children’s Hosptial. This year’s CraneCon was another great event filled with amazing vendors, cosplayers, and your favorite heroes and heroines from Pixelatedgeek.com and Nintendiego.

Check out our gallery of the day’s events, and if you’re in the San Diego area and would like to give to this very worthy cause AJ will be living in his crane until Thurs., Nov. 19th.  Each day will have a different event going on that you can attend and drop of toys or go to any local Pacific Marine Credit Union or iHop to give a monetary donation.

For the 13th year, AJ of Energy 103.7 camped out on top of a crane in Mission Valley for a week to raise money and toys for Rady Children’s Hospital. But this was the first year that a geektastic convention surrounded the crane for a day, with cosplayers and vendors and panels of nerd-knowledge helping to bring in the crowds.

Comic Issues and Pixelated Geek ran a booth and recorded a panel live in front of an awesome audience, and NintenDiego shared the booth and ran an epic Super Smash Bros. 3DS tournament. Check out the photo gallery of all the fun!

Anthony, Andrew and Elizabeth gave away some comics, sold some lanyards, and witnessed a fantastic NintenDiego Super Smash Bros. 3DS tournament. And they got to record a panel in front of, seriously, one of the coolest audiences ever. Listen in to the Geek 101 discussion, recorded live at Crane Con.
