Comic Con planning part 1

Finally! The schedule for Comic Con panels has started to trickle out. My plan for Thursday involves The X-Files Panel at 3 and the Barrowman panel at 5. I'm excite. Wednesday is going to be a hard hit of the dealer's hall and if I get all my things I want I'm going to bop over to the preview screenings. What do I want? An Axe Cop badge, Skottie Young's Avenger's movie poster- and some other things at the Marvel booth, the Chris Carter variant of the X-Files comic and the Ace action figure. This will be a noble endeavor. Not sure what time I'm going to get in the Ballroom 20 line yet. I think 4 hours before is enough. I'm really sad that XF is in-between Sherlock and other fan favorite panels, but I promise I will be outta that seat when the XF panel is done; freeing it up to other fans. Then mad dash to get in line for Indigo, where John Barrowman will be having a panel. Too much fun to pass up! When that is over it'll be time to eat and recover in preparation for evening events. So far I'm feeling good about the start of con. :)

I had this moment where I was looking at pop up changing tents so I could change from my Arrow costume into my Captain America costume while waiting in the hall H line. Instead I'm just going to wear long underwear. #likeaboss

Before this thing was just about my film projects, but to be honest, I'm usually too busy when I'm working on them to actually post about them. Now it's about me. If you care. Which you might, cause you're here. Today involves: Getting ready for SDCC, and then going to work (Disneyland, selling portraits from 3:30-midnight. Say hi if you're around.) I don't think I've ever had such a holistic convention preparing experience ever. The thing about SDCC; it is so big and wonderful and epic and ohgod it only happens once a year and GEEK MECCA for serious- anyway, it's big and full of amazing things so I want to get the most out of it. Thus I have been planning, packing, researching, making lists, finding zen, etc. I will attack this con with a ferocity I have never before possessed. Hopefully the actual convention schedule will comply. Costumes that are going with me as of now are: *Kate Bishop (HAWKEYE "Girls" scooter outfit) *Lady Captain America *Slade Wilson (CW's Arrow) Arcade Gannon (Fallout: New Vegas- voiced by Zachary Levi) Shatterstar (Current run of X-Factor) Laruel Lance (CW's Arrow) Tommy Merlyn (CW's Arrow) Ianto Jones (Torchwood) I am for sure wearing the top three with the *. Slade will be Saturday for the Arrow panel, and I think Kate will be Friday for the SHIELD panel. If you are excited for SDCC and want to know how I'm obsessively keeping up to date, I follow: SDCC Blog: These guys are awesome. Outside Comic Con: One of the SDCC blog people runs this. Nerd Machine: They do Nerd HQ. And this is my epic twitter list full of all the people who may tweet something valuable during the comic con weekend. I'll post some of my lists and research as I work on them. :)
