San Diego Comic Con 2014: Preview Night and Thursday

This is made completely out of LEGOS!

This is made completely out of LEGOS!

Hey everyone!!

So, sorry we’ve been MIA a little bit but I was making a made dash to attend SDCC. It was AMAZING! SDCC is my happy place. I’m gonna do a little recap of the days and then posts about each cosplay I did to share the fun with you all!

This year I FINALLY got my hubs to go early to get our badges for Pre-view night. Our wait of usually an hour plus went to almost nothing. We were able to walk right up to our respective lines and get our stuff! I was even able to trade my swag bag with a friend to get the one I really wanted. ADAM WEST IS AND WILL ALWAYS BE MY BATMAN!

From there we ate and then got in line for the floor. I’d never done this before but I think I’ll do it again next year. With the exception of the Funko Booth we were able to get almost everything we wanted to get that night! Huzzah! (Side note: if anyone has a Buffy bobble head from Funko that I don’t have to trade for my first born, let me know.)

During it all I was able to meet up with the lovely Liz and Meg from the Keysmash blog where we made our plans for the next day.  They were super dedicated and camped out for the first bit of the night for ballroom 20. I took the early morning shift and got there around 4 am. Did we need to get there that early to get a close seat? No, not really but you live you learn. The thing about the Ballroom 20 line is it messes with you a little bit. How? Well the line is “Everything but Hall H” until about 6 am. So that means you’re with people trying to get their hands on the exclusives being sold that day, autographs and anything else you need to line up for. It makes the line look long and you don’t really know what the people in front of you are there for.

OK so, from there we made it into the room with ease and scored great seats about 7 rows back. Once we got our seats I took this time to dash to the bathroom and get my cosplay put together. I went from “busted” to Stuttgart!Loki only 30 min. It’s amazing what makeup, contacts, false lashes, spanx, and a wig can do! LOL I was able to get back before the first panel started.  I only managed to snap one “good” photo later.

I was basically melting at this point.

First up was 24. I’ve never watched the show but that didn’t stop it from being a really interesting panel! Kiefer Sutherland was very well spoken and really loved his show. It’s great to see that passion. The next one was Under the Dome which was, meh for me save Rachelle Lefevre’s AMAZING Starbuck cosplay. Get it girl.

That was followed by a new pilot screening of a show called Scorpion which looks to be an amazing show.  It’s about a group of actual geniuses who are experts in certain areas and how they partner with the government to keep us all safe without us knowing. It’s based off a real person who was at the panel and it was fascinating to hear him talk. He’s the 4th smartest person in the world and while he was in school he was labeled “slow” bc his mind didn’t work like everyone else’s. He also had a very hard time socially which added to the labeling problem. What I loved most about it was the fact they weren’t making fun of the brainy group (I’m looking at you, Big Bang) or trying to “fix” them. I only hope it’s not on FOX so it will get more than 1 season and we can see it grow!

After that we got to visit Greendale which is always a pleasure. By the end my cheeks hurt from laughing! They are all so smart and funny! I’m super glad we’ll be get another season with them!

Teen Wolf was the last panel I saw for the day and why I got in line so early. I did really enjoy it. I’m totally aware that it’s not a perfect show and that’s OK. It’s trying more than others in many respects. That being said I’m waiting until the end of the season to watch just in case something crazy happens with Danny and he leaves the show forever. I need time to prepare. It looks like a REALLY amazing season and all things considered I’m excited to watch. (This may have something to do with JD saying we haven’t seen the last of Danny but I’m scared about what that means.)

Once TW was done so was my body. I wanted to stay for the last two panels but lol Nope. Waking up at 3:30 am was totally catching up to me. I went back to where I was staying and CRASHED!

I hoped you enjoyed going through the first two days with me!

What panel would you camp out for?
