Missing the in-person component, a few dozen decided to create an unofficial SDCC Shrine with their memories of SDCC, and met for photo opps around the Convention Center on the same weekend July 23-25.
The SDCC Shrine was erected at the Tin Fish restaurant sign, on the open plaza usually packed with SDCC attendees and sponsor activations.
The shrine itself includes some photos of cosplayers, and photos of past SDCC memories, which anyone can bring and post. Bouquets of flowers adorn the shrine, like any memorial.
SDCC signage like Hall H, Front of Line, Badge Pickup and more lovingly hugged the trees.
On the plaza, fans created chalk art memories of SDCC, including chalk art of superheroes, the SDCC logo, and phrases like “Miss you.”
