My Favorite Part of Comic-Con and My Schedule! #SDCC

comic-con

comic-conWell, can you believe it?  It’s finally here. After all the waiting, stressing, registering, buying, scouting, crafting, researching, tweeting, posting, and stressing some more, Comic-Con has finally arrived! These final 24 hours is a little surreal to me since it seems like the 2013 show was both a long time ago and just yesterday. I don’t know about you but always have trouble sleeping the…

I designed my costume after my favorite sci-fi childhood hero, the Return of the Jedi: Luke Skywalker outfit. His all black suit was simple and elegant- a perfect swag bag canvas. So here it is…A long time ago, in a Comic-Con far, far away…

Confession: Who I am and Why I do What I do…

Confession: Who I am and Why I do What I do at Comic-Con… #SDCC

MCHeroes

IMG_3573My origin story begins in a small town in Texas called Irving. My parents immigrated from Korea about a year before I was born. Growing up in a suburb of Texas was certainly interesting to say the least. Throughout elementary school and most of Junior High, I was not only the first Asian but also one of very few minorities in my school. Like any young insecure kid, the last thing I wanted to do…

94074266-san-diego

OmniSD4 Days and counting! Staying in the Gaslamp during Comic-Con was one of the best decisions our group has ever made. We used to choose affordability over proximity but we made the plunge to fully immerse ourselves in the SDCC experience a 5 years ago- and it was the best choice we ever made. At the end of a long day and starting early mornings, it was so nice to be a block or two from all the…

Just one week to go till the San Diego Comic-Con and it’s time to do some serious schedule planning. If you are new to SDCC, one of the most common questions I get in these final days is in regards to when to line up for panels. With all this talk of getting in line hours before or even camping out overnight, it’s pretty overwhelming to visualize if you have never been before. Lining up for a…

1. Having the Wrong Shoes: This is Comic-Con 101. To make it the full 4 1/2 days, you have to have the right footwear. I know someone that gauged how far they went during the week and it almost equaled a full marathon. So imagine doing a marathon in sandals! My favorite tactic is rotating new insoles in my sneakers, clean socks…

ComicConCrowd

SONY DSCI’m no doctor but I am Asian- and my people make great doctors. So I wanted to offer some advice on how to keep pace during the show. If you are new to the four day experience of Comic-Con, it’s a very grueling ride. Whether you are standing for hours in the heat, sprinting to your favorite panels, or shuffling a mile on the showroom floor, you will be exhausted like you’ve never been before.…

1005188_283632565110612_1915481095_nOne of the most celebrated and defining aspects of the San Diego Comic-Con has been the emergence of cosplay. As one of the most identifying characteristics of SDCC, cosplay has been celebrated, satirized, misunderstood and embraced over the past 4 decades as the community has grown with the show. With this year’s ‘cosplay is not consent’ controversy, it has even become a heated topic of debate.…

Birthed in 1970, this year marks the 45th anniversary of our beloved convention. So with the thanks of guest contributor, geek writer Lydia Mondi, take a journey with us down the Gaslamp Lane…

Tip of the Day #20: Prep Your Phone for Comic-Con

Tip of the Day #20: Prep Your Phone for Comic-Con… #SDCC

kirk-communicator

Preparing your phone for Comic-Con is not like dusting crops- you can bounce right off of a cosplayer or fly to close to a booth and that would end your trip real quick. Ok, I might be exaggerating a bit, but it is true that by not preparing your phone for Comic-Con, you can have disastrous results. Any Comic-Con vet will tell you that your phone is your lifeline and crucial to navigating the con…
