GAH! Comicon season is starting and I haven’t even finished one cosplay yet for this year! I need to get on my sewing machine ASAP. Remind me to get on that… anyway…
One thing I absolutely LOVE about living in San Antonio, is the fact that everything happens here. Concert tours come through, WWE comes through, any form of entertainment you could possibly want to see is happening here somewhere. That includes comicons! I went to 3 comicons last year without leaving the city limits. And this year my plan is the same. Get to as many cons as possible while using the least amount of gas. So these are the comicons I plan to get to this year:
Texas Comicon (June 20-22)– This con is relatively small and inexpensive as cons go. I like to think of it as a hidden gem because they tend to have awesome celebrities but nobody really knows about it yet. This year, I’m on a mission to be Jake “the Snake” Roberts!
San Japan (July 18-20)– This is actually an anime con, and I did not get to go last year, so I don’t know what it’s like. I expect awesomeness, though. I’ll have to bone up on my otaku-streamers ahead of time.
Wizard World (Aug 1-3)– WIZARD WORLD IS COMING TO SAN ANTONIO!! YESSSS!! John Cena, William Shatner, and the Boondock Saints boys are going to be there. Yup, this requires my presence.
Monster-Con (Sept 6-7)– This one is actually a big fat “maybe” in my agenda. I’m not really into monsters or scifi. I don’t even watch horror movies because I have nightmares, so I don’t know if I’ll handle zombies and gore in celebrated excess. But it could be just another fun con. *shrug*
Alamo City Comic Con (Sept 26-28)– I had so much fun at this con last year and I cannot wait to take my husband this year! Lita is coming, and that’s reason enough for me to go. The vendors are also amazing. This is where my son’s MK nightlight came from in case you forgot my geekout about that, lol.
That’s 5 Cons without leaving town! I hope I can get to them all, but a budget doesn’t stretch as far when you’ve got a house to be responsible for. We’ll see. I’m also on the lookout for Pax South tickets to go on sale. Yes, Pax South is going to be right here in San Antonio in January, and unless the tickets are astronomical, I WILL be there. But that’s 2015, so I’ve got time. *Sitting down at the sewing machine now*
What cons are you going to this year? Any chance I’ll see you at one of these?
