SDCC 2015: Where to Find Me!

In less than 48 hours, many of us will be on our way to the biggest geek event of the year: San Diego Comic-Con. I’m delighted to count myself among the masses of press that will be covering the show – alongside the incredible team at Moviepilot, I’ll be on the ground, bringing you a new look at the culture behind Comic-Con along with some incredible exclusives. But, outside of work, there’s one major thing I’d love to be able to accomplish: meeting new and old friends at the show! Here’s a quick rundown of the public events that you can find me at during the show, outside of the hurried hallway hugs that so many of us end up having.

Wednesday

Game of Bloggers

6-8PM, Grand Manchester Hyatt Ballroom

I’m so excited to cover this year’s HerUniverse fashion show, and I can’t wait to see what my wallet will be aching from when Ashley’s newest pieces hit the runway. If you’re there, drop me a message so that we can meet up afterward!

Boom! Comics Party

9PM-Close, Hilton Bayfront Odysea Bar, OPEN TO ALL

While most of the evening events I’ll be attending this year are invite-only and secret, this awesome party from BOOM is open to all! BOOM threw one of my favorite events last year, and I can’t wait to see what they have in store for fans in 2015.

Friday

With more sponsors than you can shake a cute Star Wars bangle at, Geek Chic TV‘s event is one that you just cannot miss. Join the brilliant minds behind this awesome and fast-growing new channel focused on the fashion behind geek culture, and marvel at the inevitable sea of cute outfits!

Outside of these, I’ll be attending several lovely parties thrown by some of the top names in entertainment, as well as visiting offsites such as Adult Swim on the Green, The Walking Dead Escape, Nerd HQ and much more!

2014 in Clips: Star Wars Live Read, SDCC/NYCC, YouTube Parties & more!

There were a lot of vlogs that just didn’t get made in 2014 because I was so very busy – and now you’ll see why! Here are assorted clips from some of the events that I neglected to really vlog about.

I’ll make an official announcement next week, but from here on out, I’ll be uploading a new vlog every Tuesday morning. Part of my resolutions involve being more active and productive, so this is just one notch in the belt.

All clips are mine! :D

Summer 2014 Recap: Leveling Up and Buying a New Coat

In just over a week, I’ll be hopping a plane and returning to New York City for the first time in over three years. I’m so excited. I think about it every night when I go to bed and every morning when I wake up. It’s like Christmas and a convention at once (and, well, technically, it is for New York Comic Con) because for every ounce of excitement, I’m overcome with a sense of dread thanks to the fact that I have barely begun preparing. I’ve felt lately that there really wasn’t much to this past summer for me, but that’s hardly true. So, in order to prepare myself for the excitement of fall, I wanted to throw together a little recap of everything that happened over the course of this summer. Hit the jump and let’s remember the good times!
