San Diego Comic-Con 2012: NBC Bringing a Grimm Revolution to Gaslamp Square Park
One way to escape the massive Comic-Con crowds inside the San Diego Convention Center is by checking out the outdoor events, one of which will be this year's takeover of Gaslamp Square Park by NBC to bring the ultimate "Grimm" and "Revolution" experience to fans.
Local restaurant Tin Fish (170 Sixth Avenue) will be transformed into the world of "Grimm" as lush greenery encompasses the building and its surroundings. Guests can "'Grimm' their skin" and receive creepy "Grimm" skin carvings applied by professional theatrical makeup artists. Those who tweet photos of their skin carvings with the hashtag #GRIMM will be entered for a chance to win a Season 1 DVD collection signed by the cast.
A replica of Aunt Marie's vintage Airstream trailer is coming to Gaslamp Square Park (Fifth Avenue and K Street in the Gaslamp District of Downtown San Diego), and fans will be treated to a personalized introduction from Nick and Monroe as they take a tour inside and see authentic props from the series including weapons cabinets, maps, the book of "Grimm," and more. Upon exit fans will receive a limited edition "Grimm" comic poster.
From the trailer take a trip through the "Grimm" forest and visit the Wesen Monuments for a description of which Wesen to look out for in the forest. Receive a "Grimm"/"Revolution" bag if you make it out of the forest.
"Revolution" takes over the peninsula tip of Gaslamp Square Park with the actual Ferris wheel from the "Revolution" pilot and an abandoned car transformed into a garden. Get a "Revolution" power button pin and a re-usable water bottle on your trip through "Revolution Village."
Additionally, a wallscape featuring the "Revolution" power button will be showcased along the Hilton San Diego Bayfront Hotel's (1 Park Blvd.) entire facade facing the Convention Center.
In addition, the panels for both shows are taking place Saturday, July 14th:
