Incognito Celebrities

Comic Con Tips Incognito Celebs SDCC 2014Did you take cosplay photos at San Diego Comic Con? If you got any photos of Spider-Man, there’s a chance that Daniel Radcliffe was under the mask. Or perhaps you saw Peter Jackson as an evil jester. Or Adam Savage in one of the best Alien costumes ever produced. Daily Dot has compiled some of the best incognito celebs from SDCC 2014.

Assassin’s Creed Experience

In anticipation of the release of Assassin’s Creed: Unity this fall, Ubisoft partnered with Tempest Freerunning Academy to build a parkour course at San Diego Comic using elements pulled directly from the game. Attendees had the opportunity to run through the course and get a feel of what it would be like to truly be an assassin. If you’ve ever seen American Ninja Warrior, then you have a pretty good idea of what to expect, although the obstacles weren’t nearly that tough. People that attempted the course were also given a cool Assassin’s Creed t-shirt that was exclusive to the experience at the Con. Speaking of American Ninja Warrior, fan favorite Kacy Catanzaro (who blew everyone away at the Dallas finals) stopped by to run through the course. Check it all out in the video here:


Game of Thrones: Survive the Realm

Over at the Omni Hotel, Game of Thrones fans were able to “experience” the world of Westeros. There were photo opportunities like sitting in the Iron Throne or posing (on a green screen) with dragons. There were costumes on display and a chance to climb a virtual “Wall”. Maybe most notable was the chance to get GOT tattoos. Not the temporary ones, these were the real deal. Here are a few of the designs you could choose from:

Quite frankly, Tim is a 17-year-old trapped in a 30-something-year-old’s body. He loves good TV – by which he means something with a good serialized storyline – and movies, and spends many of his nights immersed in a gloriously complex video game. He’s a firm believer that Lost was the greatest show ever made, and that includes the ending. Oh, and Tim is a staunch defender of the Ewoks and their place in the Star Wars canon. You can listen to Tim on the Whatever Makes You Weird podcast, check out his opinions about upcoming movies in our Trailerpark Tuesday segments, and find his reporting about cons and all things nerd-ish on Comic Con Tips.
