San Diego Comic-Con starts today and if you don't know what that is or if you are planning on heading there this week we've put together essentials you'll need to survive San Diego!
First things first, San Diego Comic-Con will be holding its 47th annual convention and is one of the biggest conventions ever! You'll hear and see TONS of news about movies, television shows, and games, including: Marvel's Avengers, DC's Justice League, Game of Thrones, The Flash, The Walking Dead, and more!
Here's what you'll need if you want to survive this year's Comic-Con:
Have a Portable Battery Pack/Charger at ALL Times!
You could be on your phone or device all day to take pictures, tweet, and distract yourself in line so you will definitely need a portable charger! Don't worry about missing the big moments if your phone dies and you can buy cheap ones pretty much everywhere!
Bring Snacks on Snacks on Snacks!
Conventions don't usually mind if you bring your own food in so save your money by not spending it on the expensive convention food and bring hecka snacks! If you're watching at home, snacks are essential too so you don't miss anything!
Make Sure to Stay Hydrated with a Water Bottle!
Even though the convention is inside, you're going to be surround by THOUSANDS of people which can get a little hot, so make sure you stay hydrated! Conventions usually don't offer free water so bring your largest water bottle to save some cash!
Wear Comfortable Shoes You Don't Mind Standing Forever In!
You're going to be standing and on your feet for most of the day to wait in line so make sure you are wearing your best athletic shoes! You may also have to run to get to places first, so probably don't wear flip flops this week!
Bring a Backpack in to Carry All the Free Swag You'll Get!
You're defintiely going to get tons of free swag and even if you don't want to keep it forever, you're going to run out of hand space so make sure at least one person in your friend group has a bag! Some conventions have lockers to rent to if you don't want to lug 20 pounds of swag around too!
If You Can't Go or If You're Stuck in Line, ALWAYS Check Twitter to Stay in the Know!
Comic-Con is huge and you probably won't be able to see everything, but if you have Twitter on your phone you'll be able to see things minutes after they drop! It's also a perk for those of us staying at home so we can pretend we're there at Hall H!
