Do’s and Don’ts of Salt Lake Comic Con

Comic Con

Because Salt Lake Comic Con starts this Thursday I won’t be doing a post on Thursday. I’m going to be quite busy (as I’m sure you can imagine 😉 )! So in honor of SLComic Con here is my list of do’s and don’ts of what to do at Salt Lake Comic Con.

Do’s and don’ts of Salt Lake Comic Con

Salt Lake Comic Con

Do’s-

Be respectful of others. Be respectful of other people’s time, costumes, and opinions. Please be respectful of the volunteers, they work so hard!

Check out the many vendors. I especially like checking out artist’s alley, I’m always amazed by the cool art that is there!

Compare prices. I’ve seen someone selling sheet protectors for a 10 dollars and then someone else was selling them for a BUCK! That’s a huge price difference.

Don’ts-

Touch someone else’s costume without permission! There are signs all over the Salt Palace about this but I’ve still seen and heard of it happening.

Push in line. We’re all trying to get to the same place people!

Make derogatory comments about someone else’s cosplay.

 

I hope that everyone who is attending this con has an amazing fantastic time!!

Come to the Nerd Side,

Jacie

Top 5 celebrity panels at SLC Comic Con

My sisters and I love going to SLC Comic Con! I always have a really great time, and one of my favorite things to do is to go to the celebrity panels! Because this way, even if you can’t pay to get a photo op with ALL of your favorite celebrities at least you’ll be able to see them and hear their stories. 🙂 A word of advice if you are planning on attending panels, get the SLC Comic Con app that will tell you the most up to date schedule on panels. Here is a list of my top five celebrity panels!

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!

Book nerdComic ConDisneyFanXHarry PotterNerdlife

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
