Con Banega Crorepati

first_imgIt is not everyday that you see Dilliwallahs jostle to take a look at books. And buy them by the dozen. The Book Fair has been going mostly empty. But if you had been going to Dilli Haat over the last weekend, you would see how the place has completely transformed. All thanks to the Third Annual Comic Con. Every Delhiite worth his Diamond Comics came along. If not to buy books, to browse through them. If not to browse, then pick up merchandise. And if for nothing else, then to get themselves clicked with the quirky banners and with men and women who decided to give themselves a fun makeover.

But it is as much about the merchandise, some of which you will get only at Comic Con which makes them all the more attractive for the funk-loving youngsters. And funky they all are. Superkudi, that hit theme of the last edition of Comic Con, has given way to Supermummy this year. So apart from banners, you could also pick up Supermummy tees, posters, wall clocks, cushions and even mugs. The ‘Wonder Bai’, or the ubiquitous Indian maid, was another favourite.

While some were the more regular ones, there were others which had been fun slogans. The Bangalore-based Hysteria, was seen doing brisk business with their badges, posters, tees, art prints and more. So much so, that you actually had to queue up to see their poster catalogue. While the now well-known Chumbak (every girl worth her auto raja boxers have heard of them) has a stall, we found the lesser known ones doing brisk business. The merchandise was similar — tees, mugs, quirky posters, calendars and even toys of comic characters — but each added their own quirky take to them. Want to voice an opinion? Wear it on the tee. That was the USP of the Wear Your Opinion stall. A stall which stocked Harry Potter merchandise, was also a crowd favourite.last_img
