CNN PRODUCER NOTE Sarah Balducci is loving her first San Diego Comic-Con: 'Crowds are normally stressful, but everyone here is so polite and quick to strike up a conversation that it feels like spending a weekend with 135,000 friends. People's costumes are amazing, and there's so much to do. On a serious level, dressing in revealing clothes at other events like concerts or shows often results in harassment and unwanted comments for me- the crowd at Comic-Con, on the other hand, is beyond respectful in my experience. Every single person asks permission before taking a picture of my costume, and every interaction is a pleasure.'
