Mattel's Monster High continues to gain popularity, and this year convention-goers can vote for one of three new students who'll be the next to enroll in the school. The other two will get stuck with a lousy public education.

Dunno what that thing is, but I'm sure Will Smith will devote an entire verse rapping
about it in his very thorough theme song.

NBC set up a Playboy Club in the Gaslamp Quarter to promote its new fall series.
Fans could pose with the bunnies and receive a Playboy key and dogtag that an onsite locksmith could cut
and customize for them... because there's nothing more romantic than giving out a spare key to your
house with the Playboy logo on it.

The actual Back to the Future car.
They kept blasting the Huey Lewis theme song, "The Power of Love" in this area...
at least it wasn't a prop from the first Spider-Man movie that had a Nickelback theme song.
You should see what Casual Friday on Eternia looks like.
Apparently, Teela's costume is now the female version of He-Man's, complete with the
Apple Bottom loins and the boots with the fur.

He-Man dance party!

Props from the upcoming remake of Total Recall starring Colin Farrell.
Every year, someone brings in an amazing homemade remote-controlled R2-D2,
just once I'd like to see a really crappy DIY droid that looks like a pinata on rollerskates.
There were an awful lot of women going down the cosplaying rabbit hole as Alice from the American McGee
video game, and Art Asylum's Alice was the best. Adventure Time was probably one of the most
popular shows to inspire cosplayers this year.

A giant inflatable Jake and Finn from Adventure Time.

Happiness is a Snoopy rainbow.
Never go on a booze cruise with Dexter.
