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!

Harry PotterMovies

May was a very Harry Potter month for me. I found some new things to add to my collection! And we all know how much I love my Harry Potter stuff! What about you? What are some of your monthly favorites from May? Did you find anything amazing that I should know about?

Monthly Favorites-May

Harry Potter

  • Lightning bolt necklace-Now technically this necklace is not a Harry Potter branded necklace, but I’m still counting it as Harry Potter because it is a lightning bolt!!  My parents recently went to Korea and picked up this GORGEOUS necklace for me! I love how small and dainty it is! This is probably one of my favorite necklaces that I own.

Doctor WhoNerdlife

Here is some Doctor Who accessories that I think every Doctor Who fan needs! Pretty much, a “starter kit” for the Doctor Who fandom!

 

Doctor Who (must have!) accessories

Fourth Doctor’s scarf

This is such an iconic accessory to have! Plus, if you’re like me and live in a cold climate this will come in handy to keep you warm in the fall or winter! I bought it from Amazon when I went as Osgood to SLC Comic Con. It’s available for $15.99 on Amazon.

Tips on how to enjoy Comic Con

Comic Con

I have had the amazing opportunity to go to four cons here in Utah. FanX twice and Comic Con twice. 🙂 So I like to think that I have learned a couple things that can hopefully make other peoples con experience as fantastic as mine has been!  Please just keep in mind that these are just things that I have found helpful, this is purely based on my own opinion and experience.

1-Bring a water bottle

I have found it is really easy to get dehydrated while running around a con, especially while wearing a costume. So I like to bring a water bottle so that I don’t run the risk of passing out or something. If you don’t want to bring a water bottle you can always pick up an awesome one at the convention. 😉
