Throwback Thursday is the theme of the day! We share with you our adventures throughout book signings, world premieres, mall tours and many others.
A book began the bond of a lifetime...
Today on Throwback Thursday we are sharing with you Taimara's first attendance to San Diego Comic Con
One of the main words you can use to describe me is: Nerd, and it's every nerd's dream to attend SDCC at least once in their lifetime. In the year 2014 I got to scratch off that item from my Bucket List (although, to be honest, I want to re-write it on that list because I do intend to go at least one more time) and have the best time ever!
How would I describe my experience at Comic Con? With one simple word: AMAZING!
Even though I did not go to any of the panels nor attend the con per say (I wanted to have the freedom of enjoying everything that SDCC had to offer outside and around the convention center and, mostly, celebrity stalk...er...I mean, celebrity site), I must say I had the time of my life. It really is a nerdy person's natural habitat and we all are equals there, accepted and loved. To begin with, that entire part of the city just becomes part of the con: the nearby streets have billboards and buses going around with posters with some nerdy theme, the restaurants demand their staff to at least wear a nerdy shirt but preferably dress up in some cosplay, and there are so, so many events going on in the hotels nearby and, of course, at the Petco Park where NerdHQ takes over along with Nerdist Industries to bring you some more panels and photo ops (all funds from these events are donated to Operation Smiles). The fun is honestly never ending -well, until they start picking everything up again on Sunday.
But I've done enough blabbing for now, let me show with pictures all that I mean.
See, only at SDCC will you...
Be able to create a "Stalking List" and know you will get to see most, if not all of them (I missed Daniel Radcliffe by a hair and almost got to go to a party where Matt Smith was doing the drunk giraffe)
Get to feel more at home than anywhere else inside Petco Park with all its gloriousness inside, such as:
And go to the bathroom and run into a celebrity YouTuber: ComicBookGirl19 (check out her video podcast if you haven't already, it's SO awesome!)
Also, only at SDCC...
I can't wait to attend Animate Miami weekend after next. I miss going to cons!!
Have you gotten your tickets yet? Hope to see you there (if you see me, say hi!)
