Despite the gray and damp conditions, courtesy of the Pineapple Express, hundreds of enthusiastic attendees came in costume for the festivities.

They waited in line to meet celebrities like Jerry Mathers and Mads Mikkelsen.

But co-founder Rick White said Silicon Valley Comic Con is unique because it goes beyond celebrities and pop culture.

"We look at science fiction as tomorrow's science reality," said White.
