Nerd Con 2015 – Photo and Video Gallery

I think it’s safe to say the attendance at this weekend’s first ever Nerd Con surprised everyone. The line to pick up tickets stretched all the way around the California Center for the Arts Escondido, the sales floor was massively packed, and the cosplayers were out in force. Despite the heat, the mood was upbeat and excited: if the first year is this good, we can hopefully look forward to even more awesomeness next year.
