While this was a Robert Downey, Jr. impersonator, the real RDJ was there.
So I’ve been holding off on this for a little while, but I guess I should get going on my reports! I would make one big post, but I think I will break them out day by day.
I’ll try not to make it too long, but there is no experience like San Diego Comic Con. This was my second year and I had just as much fun, but the overall experience felt different. And it’s for this reason that people come back again and again…if you can survive the badge process of course.
I’ll spare you the details of Thursday since I already wrote about it. I’ll just move on to Friday:
Just a piece of advice for those of you who would like to go one of these days; become well acquainted with lines. I’m talking about super long lines (there’s 135,000 people there after all, what do you expect?). Many people will camp out for days for a major celebrity panel, and one lady even died waiting for the Twilight panel. As for me, I paid hundreds of dollars per night for a swanky room (in a hotel where the celebs stay; we caught Stan Lee coming out of the elevator), so I damn sure planned to use it every night, and I did. There’s a price to pay for this, however. I was determined to get into the infamous Hall H this year and I did…after a good 6-7 hour wait. If you’re willing to sacrifice most of your day for something big, that’s up to you. But I promise there are tons of little things to do as well. You certainly have enough to keep you entertained.
Luckily I was able to get into the Resident Evil and Total Recall panels. I was SO CLOSE to giving up so that I could make the Spartacus panel, but it all worked out! (more…)
