Hey Brunchers! So I am a little late on starting this years SDCC Prep but honestly I have written so much on the prep for SDCC over the years.
Something I haven’t written on before it what you need to do before the Con – which does not involve packing… do your research and sign up for stuff. Ok well consider me doing your research for you!
Most SDCC Vets will share a love on Nerd HQ! Its a great place to explore “outside the con” and has some pretty epic dance parties. Be sure to register before you go here! This year you can even reserve game play opportunities in advance! Last year we got to test out Star Wars Battlefront early! Also stellar are the Conversations for A Cause which bring panels to you with tickets! No waiting in line, but getting those tickets are not easy.
Nerd HQ will be back at the New Children’s Museum this year!
ADULT SWIM ON THE GREEN
Another favorite of mine! Adult Swim On the Green is a free “carnival” themed with all your favorite [adult swim] shows and is located behind the convention center. They ask you to RSVP here – you will still have to wait in line (but a shorter one). Sometimes I wonder if I should even share this stuff…
Seriously if you need to know where to go for all the fun at Comic Con get the Nerd Out App on your phone! Awesome events including probably the biggest database of Cosplay Meet Ups are all on the app. To see the SDCC activity download the app and go to Calendar > California > San Diego. Then you can hit the drop down at the top and selection Conventions. From there you can view all the events happening during San Diego Comic Con! You will be glad you did!
I will be coming out with more unique prep posts as I think of them (it’s getting real over here) but if you want to relive the glory days of SDCC 2015 you can read last years re-caps below:
