I’ve talked a bit about some of my favorite conventions that I have either attended myself or want to attend. However, with con season right around the corner, it’s time to start making some real plans, not just talking about cons I would maybe, someday like to attend. So here are my convention plans for 2015!
Denver Comic Con, May 23-25
This convention is close by, and it’s pretty much amazing. The con always has great guests, and the convention is growing literally every year. Barring any sort of personal disaster, you can bet I’ll be there.
GeekGirlCon, October 10 & 11
I attended this con last year, and I absolutely adored it. I was able to attend the con as a member of the press last year, and I am really hoping that I can do that again this year. The only hangup is that GGC is all the way in Seattle. Though that place is amazing, it’s a bit of a hike for me. Tickets haven’t yet gone on sale for this con, so I’ve still got a bit of time to get myself figured out. However, I really hope I can attend this year!
Supernatural Convention: Denver, November 6-8
I am so incredibly excited that a SPN con will be in my neck of the woods. Right now, it looks like the only tickets for sale are the hella crazy expensive “package” tickets. I know tickets for this particular convention will be more expensive than a ticket to GeekGirlCon or Denver Comic Con, but since it is so close to Christmas, I’m more than prepared to just have people give me con money to get me here. If nothing else, I can start saving my money now to afford a ticket…and even more beyond that to try to swing a photo op.
The Cross-Your-Fingers Con: San Diego Comic Con
I know, everybody and their mom wants to attend SDCC. I don’t know if I’ll be able to get a ticket, but I’ve got myself registered to attempt to get a ticket once they’re on sale. Last year, a bunch of the awesome women from the Female Geek Bloggers G+ group I’m a part of had a big meetup at the con. I’d LOVE to be around if only just for that! Denver Comic Con, Geek Girl Con, and SPN Con are all on my list of cons to attend this year, and I’m all but certain I’ll be attending those three cons. However, attending SDCC has a pretty giant question mark by it. The challenge to actually get tickets paired with expensive flights and expensive hotel rooms makes this one super iffy for me. If nothing else, I can just stay home and whine about not attending like I did last year.
Will you be attending any cons this year? Which ones? Let me know in the comments!
