My Top 10 Tips On Attending Your First Ever Comic Con

Hi Everyone! ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ve been asked by the lovely folks over atย The 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 Consย can 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 attendingย the 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, doย make 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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

Finally, feel free to check out what I’ve been up to on my YouTube Channel SavanFilms!

See you all soon!

Florida Vlog Part 5: St. Petersburg (Near Clearwater), Tampa

Hey everyone! ๐Ÿ™‚

So this is the final Blog and Vlog Post from the Florida Series and this was taken in St. Petersburg (near Clearwater), Tampa, Florida. Hope you have enjoyed the other four parts and shared it with your friends and family.
With this Vlog I filmed it in different parts and it is more or less a tour of certain parts of the city; mainly walking distance from where I was staying. The film shows a botanical garden called “Sunken Gardens” and a walk around Beach Drive where my hotel was located.

Sunken Gardens has been one of the Landmarks of St. Petersburg since 1935. Their mission statement is “To preserve and enhance Historic Sunken Gardens and to provide enjoyment and unique opportunities for the study of a tropical forest through diverse educational and cultural experiences.” The site is 4 acres in size (larger than Camley Street Natural Park!) and is an awesome place to visit with friends and family. Their website (found here) tells you more about the place in detail.

Here is the Vlog:

Hope you enjoyed watching the Vlog ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Also look out on my Flickr page for the photos of the Wildlife taken whilst I was on holiday in Florida. Look out for my tweets for when they are released (hopefully 6th September 2012, UK time).ย  On the 26th August 2012 my cousins, brothers and I went to Thorpe Park for a day and I managed to film something really good for next week’s Vlog (which should be released on the 10th September 2012). For my readers outside the UK, Thorpe Park is one of the largest Theme Parks in the UK.

I’ll be also planning to do a Vlog and Blog Post about Doctor Who’s latest series which recently aired on the 1st September 2012. This will be filmed about episode 1 and 2 which are “Asylum of the Daleks” and “Dinosaurs on a Spaceship.” This will be also released next week too and then I will explain what’s happening in future Vlogs and blog posts.

Florida Vlog Part 4: Universal Studios

Hi everyone! ๐Ÿ™‚

 

Sorry for a slightly delayed Blog Post, was watching the London 2012 Paralympic Games Opening Ceremony. I must say it was an awesome and very unique way of celebrating the start of something big.

 

Now in regards to this Vlog; this was filmed outside in the rain at Universal Studios and was filmed over a month ago. We only went for the big rides and was a bit disappointed about the Back to the Future Ride was replaced by the Simpson’s Ride. Otherwise my brothers and I had a good time before heading off to St. Petersburg (Tampa).

 

Here it is:

 

Next week will be the final part to the Florida series and will reveal what is coming up in the next Blog Post.

Have fun looking at the other posts ๐Ÿ™‚

Florida Vlog Part 2: Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Hi everyone! ๐Ÿ™‚

Here is this week’s 2nd Blog Post and it’s all about Disney’s Animal Kingdom. We did visit Disney’s Hollywood Studios on the same day but I forgot to record stuff and was way engrossed in going on Star Tours 3D and enjoying the Pizza Planet Pizza. I also took loads of photos whilst at that park. However, I did take loads of Wildlife Photos which will be uploaded in a separate Blog Post in the very near future! ๐Ÿ™‚

Here is a Highlights Vlog post of the Kilimanjaro Safaris Expedition (error with video, something happened with codec and also original cannot be found) (Aug 2013)).
Next week will be the Universal Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios Vlogs and their accompanying Blog Posts.
Then the following week will be the St. Petersburg, near Clearwater, Tampa Vlog and Blog Post. Plus will keep you all posted on future Vlogs and other updates.

Florida Vlog Part 1: Disney’s Magic Kingdom

Hi everyone! ๐Ÿ™‚

This is the start of the Florida Vlogs and the next one due out is the Disney Animal Kingdom Vlog and accompanying Blog post.

This trip to Florida was from the 18th July till the 27th July 2012. Also it was the third time the family and I visited the U.S. State. The first time was when I was 7 (1997), the second time was when I was 14 (2004) and now eight years on (aged 22).

Each trip was different and the first time round it was awesome. The second time was very enjoyable as I was able to go on all the roller-coasters but we did experience a Hurricane. This was Hurricane Charlie and it was pretty scary being our first time experiencing one. Fortunately for us when we visited in July, there were just some Tropical Storms but otherwise very hot!

On this holiday, we visited Disney’s Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom (over two days). We also visited Universal Islands of Adventure and Orlando’s very own Universal Studios (also over two days (with a day’s rest in-between)). Finally resting in St. Petersburg near Clearwater, Tampa.

Now the first Vlog is an edited clip of the famous “Wishes” Firework Display at Disney’s Magic Kingdom. No matter how long the video is I still feel that it gives you the reader a taste of what it was like to be there. One thing I can tell you, if you have the time to go to Walt Disney World Orlando, you must visit the Magic Kingdom (even if you are a grown-up!)

Here is the Vlog (gone due to video issues with sound)

See you on the Animal Kingdom Blog Post! ๐Ÿ™‚

Latest Update Blog Post

Hey everyone,

Sorry for the delay in releasing the Final Vlog from India. The reason behind this is due to working at the London 2012 Olympics as a Steward and I have been very busy and come home late. I will hopefully release it on the 13th August 2012 with it’s Blog Post too. Also the Flickr photos will be released too.

There will be Vlogs from Florida and I will release two per week with their respective Blog Post. Also a special Blog post/Vlog about the London 2012 Olympics will be released soon afterwards.
