New York Comic Con ’13 and me.

059

This year marked the third New York Comic Con that I have attended.

My game plan this year was to attend a majority of the panels that I selected on my Show planner app.

I believe that I attended somewhere between 75- 80 percent of the panels which included

The 25th Anniversary of Childs Play which helped me finally conquer my fear of the doll,

Comic Book Men, Venture Brothers,

The Walking Dead,

Reign, Robot Chicken, Beauty and the beast,

Defiance,

The Following,

Davinci’s demons

The Outlander,

Person of Interest, Haven, Teen Wolf

Black Sails

and last but, not least…

270

Sleepy Hollow.

I stayed late on Thursday for a special screening of Almost Human, The Tomorrow People and the 100.

Day 1

Day 1

This year for my birthday, I received an Ultimate VIP pass which made my experience less stressful. I had a 3 day pass my first year and a four day on my second so this was the icing on my cake.

It helped my get into the most popular panels.

There were many people who seemed to have it out for the VIPs.

I never felt that way when I was attending in the previous years when I had a regular badge.

A few moments upset me, particularly when I was yelled at by an irate security guard for wanting to use the rest room.

Plus, The Walking Dead panel was really good but, I felt uneasy with the crowd this year.

One crew member was hit in the fact as the crowd rushed up to the stage at the end.

Despite that I had a good time, next year I hope to attend regardless of what badge I get.

I started brainstorming already what will be my game plan as I did last year.

My goal is to make it to SDCC 2015.

Wish me luck.

Below are a few more pics from the con.

NYCC 2013 is a go

New York Comic Con 2013 is a go for me.

This is the one thing I look forward to in the fall besides The Walking Dead, American Horror Story and My Birthday.

My badges arrived in the mail this week.

We secured the hotel room.

Now all that I can do is sit and wait for the announcements to begin.

I am just as excited as I was for my first  NYCC experience two years ago.

For the neophytes here are a few tips to get you through the con

  1. Wear comfortable shoes.
  2. Get at least 6-8 hours of sleep.
  3. Shower (some fans choose not to which makes The Javitz Center very smelly.)
  4. As soon as you enter the building….go to the bathroom. The lines are Mondo long even at the men’s room.
  5. Map out your adventure. Trust me it will make the con less stressful.
  6. Food at NYCC is very expensive.
  7. To piggyback on #7, make sure that you bring cash. The ATM lines are super long.
  8. Wear your costume to Comic con ( many fans choose to change in the bathroom which creates a traffic jam of angry people doing the pee pee dance.
  9. Plan a rendezvous spot because it is easy to get lost in Jacob Javitz.
  10. Most importantly, have fun. It is going to an exciting weekend.

 

This will be my third time attending New York Comic Con.

It is my birthday gift to myself.

I hope to meet some awesome people this year.

And share a wonderful experience.

28 days until New York Comic Con…

I am looking forward to all the announcements.
