So here are 3 things that I am currently doing now to prepare for Comic Con.

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!

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. 😉
