10 Things I Love About Comic Con

I'm experiencing con flu - and not just the actual flu where I feel like death - but con flu, the one where I am missing comic con a great deal. It's been a little over 3 weeks since MCM London was all over, and I want to be back there already!

The planning
There is just something about planning when to get tickets, what days to go, what trains we're getting, and what food we'll quickly munch before we get going. I get super excited during the planning, and that's before I'm even there!

Convention only items
Predominately Funko's POP! figures, I love seeing what items are specifically for the convention, as it is more likely I'll buy it!

Still getting into this, but I've done this for the last 4 times I've gone. I've been a generic Gryffindor student twice, and Arkham Knight Harley Quinn, as well as animated series Dr Harley Quinn.

Meeting other geeks!
I've meet a handful of amazing people at these conventions. Even if it's just a quick chat when I'm getting a picture of their cosplay, or even via Instagram after the event is over, I love making new geek buddies! Plus there are always a dozen meetups going on for different fandoms, where you can meet loads of people.

Time with my cousins
I go with my two cousins, Daniel and Lucy, each time. It's nice getting to spend a whole weekend with them, and being right in our comfort zones of shopping goodies, and pointing out all the amazing cosplayers we see!

Though I don't really go to these, I've been to a few of the Creator Space ones in the past. I'd love to go to the main stage ones at some point, but they're always so busy! This is a great way to see what your fave YouTubers, actors, comic writers/artists are up to.

Celeb Guests
On the subjects of panels, you can see an array of celebs at these events. I've seen a few of the original Power Rangers, Paul Bettany, David Bradley, and others from a distance! Also spotted Warwick Davies one year and managed to catch his eye and wave at him, and he waved back. Hoping that MCM London has more amazing guests in the future - fingers crossed for Captain America himself, Chris Evans!

Buying goodies
My nerd soul is always fulfilled from all the things I buy. Do I need any of it? No. But that doesn't stop me dropping £200+ every time I go!

Sneak peeks at upcoming TV shows/movies
At the panels, you can sometimes be lucky and get a sneak peek at trailers that are not yest released, scenes from upcoming TV episodes, and sometimes a clip or two of a movie you are dying to see!

The exhaustion
A weird one to add I know, but as much as I ache all over from the weekend of walking, heavy bags and the thousands of steps at the train stations  - it's a sign of a good weekend!

I really hope I can go again next year, so I can go mad and buy more things! What things do you like about Comic Con, if you've ever been to any around the world? Let me know! Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)
