My friends, this is what we call GO TIME. I’m frantically searching for travel-sized makeup and sunscreen while making sure I actually booked flights, because anxiety. I keep hearing from the rest of the crew about their pre-SDCC makeovers (preparing for all the secks, I assume), but I DON’T GOT TIME FOR THAT. My plans for a haircut and highlights have been scrapped; I’ll be lucky if I can get an eyebrow appointment over the weekend. These bitches will just have to DEAL.
A few developments have been made since our last Comic-Con post:
1. We Have An Alcohol Sponsor (not that kind–the opposite).
We are now sponsored by Art in the Age. You know, the makers of Sage.
No, I’m not joking. The folks at Art in the Age were
crazy kind enough to supply us with adult beverages to fuel our evening ritual of dramatic Midnight Sun readings. Maybe they were sick of hearing Bekah & Nikki going on and on about Sage, and wanted to shut us up with some swag. Regardless, you can expect to see Comic-Con themed cocktails on the regular. Rather, you can expect to see some cocktails that are loosely tied to things at Comic-Con. I’m not going to pretend we’re doing a lot of research on this.
I’m really excited about all of this, as it feels pretty baller to have a booze sponsor, but I’ll admit I have a PostSecret-worthy concern:
2. We actually know some of the stuff we’re going to.
Jamie, Nikki, and Bekah are hitting the panels inside, and I am…well, I am cruising around San Diego for some outside events between guacamole shots.
On our list of panels within SDCC that we will attend if we can strong-arm our way in there:
Game of Thrones
And many more!
Outside the convention center, the party is going to be OFF THE CHAIN because I just snagged tickets to this event at Nerd HQ before it sold out in 2 seconds:
Since this justifies my entire trip, I will be kicking back and relaxing for most of the week before hanging with Joss on Saturday. Since this is billed as “A conversation with Joss Whedon,” I’m trying to prepare as much as possible for our personal one-on-one chat. I couldn’t believe tickets for this coffee date with Joss were only $22! I’m rehearsing for our time together already:
“Hey JWheeds. I like to think of you as my personal dream machine, in that you make most of my dreams come true. Even the ones I didn’t know I had, like about ninja hookers. With that in mind, would you consider writing a superhero movie specifically for Helen Mirren? I think she needs an original character, not an existing Marvel or DC property, and I don’t trust this task in the hands of anyone else. Thanks–are you gonna finish that biscotti?”
3. We Have At Least One Party to Attend (we are cool).
This mixer with the Geek Girl Project looks awesome, and if you’re going to be in San Diego, RSVP here on Facebook to join us! We’re not sure if we have enough geek cred to really fit in here, but you’d better believe we’re going to try (this is where our sponsor really comes through with the liquid courage).
Other than that…plans are developing on the fly! But seriously, let us know if you’re going to be in San Diego next week, because we should meet up and say hi. We’ll be the ones stumbling around in TN t-shirts. You won’t miss us.
Are you going to Comic-Con? What is your favorite piece of Supernatural fan art WAIT NO I don’t want to see that.
