SDCC 2015 Preparations: 100 days out

We are officially 100 days away from the beginning of San Diego Comic Con 2015!!! In a little over 3 months, swarms of geeks will be descending upon the Gaslamp and Downtown San Diego, in search of exclusive news and merchandise, seeing old friends, making new ones, and generally having a really frakking great time!



Last week, on Tuesday, was the Hotelpocalypse, or the SDCC Hotel Sale.  This hotel sale helps Con-goers find rooms in hotels downtown and along the (free!) shuttle route at pretty decent prices (compared to the jacked-up rates available for the same week at the same hotels).  There were a whole bunch of problems with the sale this year, but we got lucky and have a room within walking distance of the convention center.

At Geek & Sundry

Now that Hotelpocalypse is over and the majority of badges have been sold (parking passes still need to go on sale - don't forget to get your lottery email in!), let's get down to business to defeat the Huns.

I mean, it's time to get serious about planning for the Con!

History's Vikings panel

By now, we should all have booked our flights and hotels (or trying to, considering how the hotel sale went). It's time to plan and work on cosplays, research what guests and panels will be at SDCC, and wait for the official schedule (released two weeks before the Con) and exclusive merchandise news.

Loved these two cosplayers! Marion even had the frying pan!

Over the next few weeks I will share the resources I used to plan for SDCC 2014, what I intend to do differently for SDCC 2015, and my cosplay progress.

  1. I still need to get through Star Wars Celebration and Fanime before SDCC!! I still can't believe it's 3 months away!

    1. I'm so jealous - I would love to attend Celebration, but can only afford one cross-country flight this year!
