Campbell Con Pics Are Finally Here!

Without further ado, here are some snaps from Campbell Con, the premiere event! It was quaint, cute, and a great place for community building. I’ve only been to a few cons so far, and this was a smaller one, but it had a lot more sense of community and camaraderie than the larger cons. It was also a great way to meet like minded creative people in the geek world. Hopefully they have another event next year!

The Comic Con Cosplay Drinking Game

Greetings Evil Geekdom!  As we get geared up for the 2013 NY Comic Con, we’re bringing you all kinds of helpful tips that we’ve accumulated over years and years of con attendance.  This spot originally ran last year ahead of the 2012 NYCC, but the information is still relevant (although I think it may be time to overhaul the costumes uses in this game), so we’re bringing it back to you.  See you guys in New York!!!

Hey now, Evil Geeks!  If you want to check out a panel or maybe get an autograph from a special guest, it’s inevitable that you’re going to be spending some time waiting in a line which can get a little boring after a while.  While waiting in line before the Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes “Jay & Silent Bob Get Old” podcast last year, we members of the Brotherhood came up with a great idea to kill some time while waiting in line:  The Comic Con Cosplay Drinking Game!  Of course, gameplay doesn’t have to be limited to line waiting situations, you can play anywhere in the con at any time. Disclaimer:  I’m pretty sure the people running the show at the Javitz would frown upon we fine upstanding citizens, imbibing in demon juice during the con, so be sure to keep it on the down-low.  Also, remember to drink responsibly, because with great alcoholic power, comes even greater gin-fueled responsibility.  I really can’t stress the importance of responsibility when you’re getting mind-numbingly smashed.

2013 New York Comic Con Survival Guide – Part II

NERDS!

Thanks for coming back. Today is part 2 of my New York Comic Con Survival Guide. Again, this post is just meant to help you plan some things out so you enjoy your experience in a mere 13 days… OK, here goes!

3G or 4G? More like NO G!
Guess what happens when 50,000 of your closest friends all get together in one big ass room and start tweeting, text messaging, calling people, and checking email? Data speeds crawwwwwwwwllllllllll! This fact will not limit people using their phones and various electronic devices. If you’re with some friends and you plan to separate then you might want to establish some ground rules like “let’s all meet under the giant Optimus Prime at noon!” The reality is that you will send messages to each other but they won’t make it in a timely fashion. You will get the text but by the time that you read it, Nathan Fillion is already gone and you won’t get to grill him about possibly being an avenger (inside nerd talk, if you don’t know what I’m talking about, look it up!) Also, it is really big and loud at comic con and there are shiny objects everywhere, you might not even realize that 10 texts just came in via the airwaves. Wifi is also interesting, it’s not free throughout the center. Basically you pay $5/hr or you can get a daily or weekend rate. This is typical with most conventions so I kinda expect it, but they will have a free wifi hotspot in artist alley this year but it will also probably be slow because thousands of people will be connecting. If your phone has wifi in it, I’d recommend to turn it off until you need it so it doesn’t search all day and drain battery life, Bluetooth too!

While the rest of The Brotherhood were waiting under the Giant Optimus Prime statue, our noob was following this poor cosplayer around all day long saying “But we were supposed to meet here!”
The Brotherhood apologizes young Optimus.
