  1. Awesome tips, Tony! I have just chucked my 4″ stilettos into the alley, and will be wearing some much-loved gym shoes instead. The heels wouldn’t have gone well with my jeans and Aquaman t-shirt anyway. I really enjoyed your animation skills (or whomever you employed to do them for you, if that’s the case), and your R2D2 shirt. I want one!

    • I chucked my stilettos too! Thanks and all the credit goes to Producer Brian Ward- I’m just a puppet in this masterful hands. Thanks for commenting!

    • Yes, going in full strength and rested is important. I also encourage to start on Vitamin C starting on Sunday. You want a heads start again the con crud. Thanks for commenting!

  2. For my 2013 comic con I was a newbie but for an entire year before I scoured the internet for all that I could learn about it mainly at this blog. I made sure to wear good shoes, have back up power and snacks. That helped tremendously. But I got lucky, I did have one plan…to see Person of Interest/Grimm/Revolution panel. I went in line late, had no idea of the con layout, took my time getting in line, had no solid plan and everything worked out perfectly. I knew I couldn’t do that with Hall H etc. But still. II got lucky. Plus I went alone and was oddly Zen about everything. Usually I stress but I didn’t.

    • Thanks for being a return reader. That’s so great that your first year wasn’t too stressful. Sometimes the con gods are merciful to the first timers. I doubt it will be that way this year though! Thanks for sharing your story and for commenting!
