Las Vegas Comic Con 411

Tuesday, 13 June 2017

In collaboration with,  I would like to give you some tips and tricks on attending Amazing Comic Con in Vegas.

The first Comic Con I ever attended was in Dubai and it was the MEFCC (Middle East Film and Comic Con) back in 2012, which happened to be their first event. The idea of being around like minded people who love art, film and comics inspired me heavily and to see everyone dressed up as their alter ego/ hero or heroine made the event even more special.

What To Wear?

For someone like me, who wasn't too interested in dressing up and wearing a costume, its best to keep your outfit for the weekend, simple but also playful.

Here are a few examples of what you can you wear;

What to pack?

When it comes to what to carry in your day bag, try to keep your backpack as light as possible with the essentials for the day. This gives you a chance to fill it up with goodies from the exhibitors.

This what I would I classify as the essentials to pack:

  • Phone ( Take some pics for social media and to connect with people)
  • Wallet ( packed with debit card and cash to spend)
  • Portable Charger ( incase my camera/phone dies)
  • Make Up - (Eyeliner/Mascara, Lipstick/Gloss and Cover Up )                                                      ( as a female, you may need to touch up during the day)
  • Earphones ( To be used, when travelling to the event or pass the time listening to music)
  • Sunglasses ( For the sunny days, if it is outdoors)
  • Notepad and Pen ( get some celebrities to sign it or just to doodle in it)
  • Camera ( Take some pictures to remember the event)

How to spend the day?

When it comes to events like this, one of my favourite things to do is to explore all the vendors and see what they to offer. It's motivational to hear their stories on how they started their craft and how they managed to get into the exhibition.

My top tip with attending events like this is to buy a weekend pass so you can enjoy the event to the fullest. You won't be able to see it all, so its easier to break it down day by day and see it all over the weekend. 

For example, there might be workshops, talks and competitions, which you can be a fun way to enjoy the day.
