Conventions

 I’ve been attending conventions for over two decades.  I’ve been to everything from genre specific cons, non-profit cons, show specific convention, conventions with just a couple hundred attendees to conventions with well over a hundred thousand attendees.  I’ve attended cons in venues I can see from my driveway and spend over thirty hours on a train just to get to a venue.  My experiences have ran the gamut so on this page I’ll share with you pictures, articles, and guides for every single convention I’ve attended in my lifetime.  Unfortunately many pictures from the conventions I attended as a child have since been lost, but I’ve at least documented the dates and linked to what I could find of their existence online.

San Diego Comic-Con

The convention I’ve attended more than any other is San Diego Comic-Con.  I first attended SDCC in 2011, then at out in 2012.  It killed me watching everything from afar, though, so I  went back in 2013 and haven’t missed a year since then.  I’ve written and SDCC Badge Tips Guide for those wanting to attend the first time, an SDCC Hotels Tip Guide for those needing to find accommodations, and a general SDCC Tips page that includes articles written by me and my friends to help you figure the whole thing out.
