San Diego Comic Con, Day 2: Photobooth Fun
Our staffers’ Comic Con experience continued yesterday (Friday), and it was great! Day 2 wasn’t as heavily packed with Catching Fire-related things because Lionsgate didn’t have any events scheduled for the day, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have some really nifty things to show you.
Lionsgate’s booth (pictured above) was still open at the Convention Center, still giving out freebies like the mockingjay pin we showed you in our day 1 post. Yesterday, they also had a cool activity for fans to participate in: a Catching Fire photobooth! Mockingjay.net and PageToPremiere.com founder Kimmy had the chance to stop by and get these amazing souvenir pics:
Smart Pop Books, which published V. Arrow’s Panem Companion, was also handing out these awesome District pins at their Comic Con booth. They have three different sets of these, so if you’re at the Con, be sure to drop by to grab some!
Despite it being a slow day at the Con as far as our fandom is related, the fans were definitely present and visible. Check out these adorable pics of some young fans showing their Hunger Games pride, thanks to The Hunger Games‘ official Twitter.
And of course, there was also more cosplay going around! Once again thanks to The Hunger Games‘ official Twitter, here are some fantastic takes on Katniss in her Training Center outfit. Don’t they look great?
In the afternoon, our staffers had to pack up and get ready to camp in line for today’s Catching Fire panel. Yes, they had to actually spend the night queueing, it gets that crazy. They’re actually awake now (at six in the morning!) and waiting for the line to be let in (probably in a few hours), so if you’re at the Con and you see them in line, make sure to say hi– you can get a free bookmark! They’re all wearing their Mockingjay.net t-shirts so you can recognize them. Check out some pictures of the team below.
That’s it as far as the highlights for day 2 go, but don’t worry, we’ll be bringing you all the details of day 3 tomorrow. And that’s saying a lot because day 3 is going to be our BIG DAY! Several events are planned. Costume designer Trish Summerville will be participating in a panel and signing autographs; we’ll have Jeffrey Wright (Beetee), Jena Malone (Johanna) and Willow Shields (Prim) signing autographs as well; and let’s not forget the biggest event of the day: the Catching Fire panel with the cast and director, and the world premiere of a brand new trailer for the movie. We’ll definitely be posting about it, so don’t miss it for the world!
Once again, throughout the day we’re always posting all of these highlights directly to our social media sites, so if you’d like to get on-the-spot Comic Con updates, be sure to follow us there as well!
