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!

Putting together a costume for Comic Con

Comic Con

I have been called the “MacGyver of Costumes” so I thought I’d give a couple tips on throwing together a costume for Comic Con. I’ve made quite a few costumes and have helped people make them so hopefully this will be helpful. With that being said I am not a professional in anyway, shape, or form. And yes, you can throw together a costume with only a week left until Comic Con. 🙂

 Costume for Comic Con

First of all, try to make a costume for Comic Con with separates that you will actually wear again. I’ve found that this is the most cost effective thing that you can do. Who wants to spend a ton of money on an outfit that you will only wear once? Not me!
