My Top 10 Tips On Attending Your First Ever Comic Con

Hi Everyone! ­čÖé

I’ve been asked by the lovely folks over at┬áThe Amazing Las Vegas Comic Convention to write about some tips for those attending their first ever Con!

I’ve learnt a lot from attending it which I want to pass onto those who are new to these sort of events.

Here are my top 10 tips:

  1. Do try and make friends at the Con. This is because it’ll be less scary and more enjoyable for yourself.
  2. Don’t be a creep to cosplayers as they’re people too. These people are open to being filmed and having their photographs taken as long as you are nice and ask their permission to do so.
  3. Do try and take as many breaks as you can. This is especially for those who find big and crowded places a bit too overwhelming.
  4. Do plan your day out properly. If you are there for the whole event, don’t try and cram everything into a short period of time.
  5. Don’t overspend. I know it’s very tempting to buy every single favourite thing of yours but Cons┬ácan get very pricey. Having a budget can help you plan better.
  6. Do bring portable chargers. This is just incase your phone or camera battery dies and there is no available charging point.
  7. Do follow the rules of the Con. This is mainly because its in place for your own safety and of others too.
  8. Don’t be an idiot. Do enjoy yourself but be respectful and mindful of others who are also there attending┬áthe convention too.
  9. Do use the wifi if you can. If there is free wifi at the convention it can save battery life and data. Also, do┬ámake sure that the connection is strong and isn’t too slow due to others using it.
  10. Finally, don’t be afraid to cosplay if you want to and wear something you feel comfortable in!

I hope these tips are helpful ­čÖé

If you are attending The Amazing Las Vegas Convention do enjoy yourselves and feel free to check out this website out.

Behind Closed Doors: Q&A With The Yogscast Panel Blog

Hi Everyone! ­čÖé

On Friday 22nd May 2015 I went to see the Yogscast Q&A Panel in the Platinum Suite at the London Excel Centre which was part of MCM Comic Con.

It was amazing seeing my favourite YouTubers being asked questions about the various going ons at YogTowers (their main base plus office) in Bristol, United Kingdom.

The panel was split into two with five members being asked for the first hour and four members for the second hour.

The first half included Sjin (aka Paul), Duncan, Hannah, Martyn and Kim. The second half included Lewis, Sips (Chris), AlSmiffy (Alex) and Ross. Also not forgetting the host and Yogscast member Turps (Mark) who was in charge of the panel.

I was lucky to take some photos with the Yogscast as they accidentally stumbled upon the queue for the panel:

I thoroughly enjoyed it and made new friends too plus afterwards had a lovely chat with Sjin. They accidentally went to the wrong exit and so did my new friends and I.
