Our Top Ten Gifts For San Diego Comic Con 2015 Badge Holders

Image
Here is our top 10 items any SDCC badge holder will appreciate under the Christmas tree.1. SDCC Survival guide. It's very helpful and necessary for anyone attending http://sdccsurvivalguide.com. Or if they are old school SDCC experts or newbies, the ConQuest Journal is pretty fresh http://conquestjournal.com. This protects and organizes your new "preciouses"2. An inflatable mat or sleeping bag, for those hardcore line sleepers. Maybe they won't buy a nice inflatable mat for themselves, but you don't want them sleeping on the hard ground now do you? Or find a vintage sleeping bag like TMNT which would be awesome and cheap at a Goldwill type store. Or go all out at any sporting goods store.3. Socks- Either athletic style or Superhero socks with capes. They pretty much make a sock for any fandom. Plus if they want they can tuck these in their suitcase for next year. Less prep!4. A little SDCC emergency kit- body wipes for when a shower is few hours away, shout wipes…

RunDisney Avengers Inaugural Run

We decided our first half marathon should be RunDisneys first ever Avengers run. The spots sold quickly, which  admittedly added to our concerns about our own abilities to complete the run. Maybe we should have thought about that first, but we are positive people. Jump first, fall later. 


The time seemed to fly. Personally, I attempted to train for weeks at a time. Each time, I went through terrible asthma and several other health issues. It seemed grim, but I knew I'd do my best. Next thing I know, were on a flight headed to Cali.
The first event for us was the opening of the health expo. Before we even lined up, we registered for online spots for the RunDisney New Balance sneakers. Once again this was our first race, so we had no clue what to expect. Thankfully, we got there early because the place was packed. People really wanted merch and we were advised to get in that line first.

Thanksgiving Is Coming! Watch out for the Super Sprowtz

Image
Sometimes your at a convention and you realize you wanna chill somewhere and check out something new. Flashback to NYCC, when we rolled the dice and took our seat at the Super Sprowtz panel (for kids). Our gamble payed off in endless smiles and laughter as Roger, the star of the YouTube show, tailored his presentation for the all adult crowd. His unique mix of silly freestyle rapping and ability to engage the crowd was literally moving (since we actually did squeeze in a little exercise).

On Sunday we brought Con Sweet Con's token child to join in the fun. It surely was a hit. Don't take it from me though, check out the pics. Smiles on all the faces. This is why you should check out their site, supersprowtz.com, It features recipes, videos and interactive features you and the kids can enjoy right now.


Also don't forget you can subscribe to their YouTube channel especially if you have wee ones.
