I don’t know why I thought I’d be OK with skipping SDCC. The same exact thing happened when I skipped in 2012. Yes, both times I did amazing trips in place of San Diego but then the tweets start happening. The panels are posted. The photos pop up. I sit here in a stew of my own rage. I’m not really mad at anyone or anything, mostly sad that I’m missing out on hanging with friends.
That’s why I already have a hotel booked for next year! I had been stalking the hotel since SDCC ended and I was finally able to get in and get a reservation. I’d pass it along but the hotel has closed reservations for the time around and during San Diego Comic-Con. I’m just happy to know my rates are locked in and a few friends were able to get a room as well. Now I don’t even care if I get a badge or not. Of course I’m going to try but it’s more about seeing all my friends and enjoying lovely San Diego.
And if anyone is wondering, I will be bringing a few cosplays with me. At the moment I’m planning to bring USO Hawkeye, Scarlet Witch (AOU), and Baskin Robbins Scott Lang. USO Hawkeye will probably be worn on Sunday again, with the other two being casual enough to wear whenever, depending on the schedules and if I even get badges.
Guess it’s time to start saving up money! See you in San Diego!
