Sassy Damsels

#SDCC #Twitter #SanDiego #LasVegas #Houston #SassyDamsels #Epic These hash tags should just about sum it up, but in case you're not #hashsavvy, we are two damsels from two major cities that have converged to one of the biggest conventions of the year, San Diego Comic Con. We will be posting like mad with (you guessed it) pictures and videos as we experience SDCC for the first time - SDCC 2011 here we come!

SDCC 2011 Wednesday/Thursday Quick Recap

Wow!  So we arrived in San Diego Wednesday afternoon and went straight to satellite to pick up badges – Town & Country Convention Center.  We got in line around 5:50pm, left with our badges about 2 hours later, then walked down the street and went shopping for a bit in Fashion Valley, rounding out our […]

The “Noob” Feeling.

As much as you can prepare for an event, there comes a time when you just realize that you simply can’t prepare for everything.  You can have your map at the ready, your itinerary cherry picked, your alarm clock set for the wee hours and your “survival bag” in tow. But you’re just not ready. […]

Off-Site Event: Sweet Indulgence @ The Dragon’s Den 7/20/11

For those who get to SDCC a little early, here’s an event that sounds promising on Wednesday night!  Art show, sushi, and a place called The Dragon’s Den!  It only seems to be a couple of blocks from the convention center, and may even be more convenient for those with hotels in that area.  If […]

From a Cosplay POV: The “little” things.

While this site is dedicated to SDCC and all things involving it, a really big part of my convention life since I started attending conventions circa 1999 has been cosplay.  This is a Japanese term from “costume play,” where you dress up as a character and, thus, “play” them.  The term generally encompasses all people […]

Cosplay Experience: Past, Present and Future

Chan’s post about cosplay etiquette and behavior caught my attention, and it prompted me to start thinking about some of my cosplay experiences. I haven’t been doing it as long as she has, but it’s been a good..ten or so years, at this point, on and off. And believe me when I say I’ve learned […]

Being a Girl at a Convention

Among many other blogs I have been in the process of writing, I think this one will be worthy to publish and give some insight on the ‘lesser known’ area of conventions – the girl population! It’s no secret – comic, sci-fi, video game, anime, and whatever other ‘nerd’ interests are out there, are generally […]

SDCC 2011 4-Day Badge Resales…

After D&D night last night, and with the news of badge resales coming up, two of my fiancé and I’s closest friends from Las Vegas wanted to attend.  So after many, many texts, number crunching, and general WTFness I decided to help out.  Unfortunately, Comic-Con decided to release the badges at 10am PST on a […]
