Some Geeks Get Left Behind

via Tumblr

Oh, Comic Con. I have such a love/hate relationship with you.

Last year I decided that I needed a break because the Con has gotten way too overwhelming over the past few years. My anxiety can’t take it (nor can my wallet)! And with their new method of purchasing badges last year, it took my sister and I 45 minutes to get through. And even then the 4-day badges completely sold out. SO FRUSTRATING.

But now that Comic Con officially starts today, I can’t help but feel a bit bummed that I’m not there to partake in the geeky festivities. *sigh* Seeing all sorts of Twitter, Tumblr, and Facebook updates about it colors me chartreuse (not all the way green, as I’m somewhat content).

I just keep reminding myself of how annoying it was waiting for hours on end to get into the exhibit hall, how overly crowded it was, how getting into panels isn’t as simple as it was before, how getting freebies at all the booths is a bitch now, and the B.O. Brigade (stinky folks everywhere!). And I impulse buy like nobody’s business, and when I get home I look at my loot and say, “Well what the hell am I gonna do with all this now?”

Here are some Con exclusives I would have totes gone for (and possibly regret later if I managed to get my hands on them):

Polly Pocket & Friends DC Comics Villains set, via Hasbro

Tiny Titans figure set, via Mattel

Sulley & Boo Pop Vinyl set, via Funko/Disney 

I shall live vicariously through all the Comic Con updates I see over the interwebs. In the meantime, I guess I have Stockton’s first official comic book convention to look forward to next month.

  2. I desperately need to go to a comic-con. The mini-version in my small city is so lame. My husband and I need to venture over to Cali to get to a good one here soon.
