3 Things I’m doing NOW to prepare for Comic Con

Comic Con

I am a REALLY organized person and like to prepare for things WAY early! (Yes, I have already started planning Christmas gifts.) Salt Lake Comic Con is scheduled for September 21-23 and while that may seem like a long ways away, it will be here before you know it! So here are 3 things that I am currently doing now to prepare for Comic Con.

3 Things I doing NOW to prepare for Comic Con

Saving money!!-

This is something that we always say we are going to do, but then never actually do. Well I started actually doing it and it has made my Comic Con experience so much more enjoyable! Comic Con, for me, is not an inexpensive venture. I always get a celebrities autograph and I don’t think I have ever gotten less then two pictures at every con I’ve gone to. To help plan for this I take $25.00 out of each paycheck (I get paid twice a month) and put it. The best part is that $25.00 isn’t a lot of money but it quickly starts to add up. When it comes time for Comic Con I just take the money I’ve saved to the con in cash. I talked about the importance of using cash in this post. This is the best way for me not to overspend at the con.

Improve my stamina-

Comic Con is exhausting!! Utterly amazing, but definitely exhausting! So I’m trying to do simple things so that when I go I can make it through the con. Some really cool stuff happens at the end of each day. And if you leave at say six you could mix something awesome! *Cough, cough cosplay contest.* So I’m trying to walk more and be more active. This way I will be better able to enjoy  every little moment!

Planning Costumes-

This is definitely something that you want to prepare in advance! No one likes to be rushing around last minute trying to throw together a costume! When you prepare in advance you can take your time and make your costume look exactly the way that you want it. Or in my case fix up any old costumes that you are planning on reusing. This year I was thinking making one new costume and reusing some of my previous costumes. I lately have been OBSESSED with Jurassic World so I think it would be really fun to go as Claire. I already have a red headed wig. All I would need to do is find/make a white skirt, a white blouse, and a purple tank top. Plus, I’d be able to wear all the clothes again!

5 Things I wish I’d have known before my first con

Comic Con

The Amazing Las Vegas Comic Con is making its annual appearance this year on June 23-25, 2017.  And vegas.com got me thinking, what do I wish I had known before my first con??? Huzzah! A new blog post idea! For those of you attending the convention (jealous!!!) here are some Las Vegas vacation package deals that may make planning your trip SOO much easier. That is NOT an affiliate link, I get nothing out of it. 🙂 Hopefully this post will help you as you prepare to have an awesome time at the convention!

I’ve decided to start a new series on this blog! At the beginning of the month I will write a post about all the things that I have been loving in the previous month. This past month was an especially good time to be a nerd! *Cough, cough FanX* cough cough* I almost feel like I went on a nerd over load of amazing things and experiences! If that’s even possible. 😉 Below is a list of things that I absolutely LOVE!! Come and check out my monthly favorites for March.

Monthly Favorites March 2017

 

Harry Potter Merchandise

A lot of these things I already posted about in my FanX Haul post. But these are my favorite Harry Potter things I got out of my haul.

 

Gringotts coins

I love these little coins! I think that these are probably one of my favorite purchases EVER from Comic Con. Right now I have them displayed on my Harry Potter shelf, and it makes me happy every time I look at them. Eventually I do plan on putting each of the coins on a necklace. Obviously, you can’t get the same ones that I got but I did find them in a lovely boxed set on Amazon for $17.50. I am planning on getting the boxed set when I put these on a necklace!

Four times I lost my cool and fangirled! The last one was embarrassing…

Comic ConDoctor WhoFanXHarry Potter

I have had an occasion to meet a couple of celebrities, thank you Salt Lake Comic Con! And I have have definitely fangirled when meeting some of them. Usually I’m pretty good at keeping it together when I actually meet the celebrity, USUALLY being the key word. It’s when I am walking away that I geek out. Check out these four times I totally fangirled.

Four times I totally fangirled

Tom Felton

Tom Felton was the second celebrity that I had met, the first being Karen Gillian.  I was standing in his autograph line for a about four hours and as we were snaking our way to the autograph table I started freaking out. Usually, I can contain myself when I am actually meeting a celebrity. However, I geek out when I am about to meet them or after I have just met them. I was dressed up as Bellatrix Lestrange in her prison costume, which he commented on. 🙂 As I was walking away I got really excited and almost started hyperventilating. My sister, who was in the the autograph line with me, told me if I passed out she was going to leave me there. 🙂 Keep reading

Favorite things I’ve bought at conventions! And for relatively cheap too!!

Comic ConFanX

Guys, their is only a little over eight weeks left until FanX 2017 at Salt Lake City! Here is a list of some of my favorite things that I’ve bought at cons in Salt Lake. I thought this would give you an idea of what to look forward to!

Favorite things I’ve bought at cons

Favorite things I've bought at a con

Doctor Who word art

I love that I can find some of my favorite Doctor Who quotes in this picture! The top of the TARDIS says “Bow ties are cool.” I bought this at the first con that I went to, which was FanX 2015. This cost picture cost me $20.00. I also have a Doctor Who Rose and 10, a golden snitch picture, and a Hunger Games symbol picture that I got at a different time. The seller was offering a “buy two, get one free” deal. I made sure to take advantage of that! Keep reading

Once in a lifetime experience at Salt Lake Comic Con!!

Comic ConStar Wars

One of the major events that went down at this past Salt Lake Comic Con is that Mark Hamill was one of the celebrity guests!!! This was a huge deal because it was the only convention in the continental United States that Mark Hamill was scheduled to come to! And you can BET that I was planning on going to his panel!

SLCC wanted to break the record for the largest audience that Mark had spoken in front of. And because the Ballroom (the largest panel room) in the Salt Palace only seats 5,500 people that wasn’t an option. So his panel was moved to the Vivant Arena, and boy was I glad that it was! Because the general public could go to see Mark Hamill’s panel. The panel wasn’t just open to people with a Comic Con ticket.  I was really impressed by how Dan Farr and Bryan Brandenburg try really hard to make it so that everyone can experience the awesome nerdy-ness!
