During Wondercon 2014, an epic battle began between Chubby Bunny, Yume Ninja and Gizzy B and that fight will continue at San Diego Comic-con this weekend. Convention Bingo is coming back and we want you to play with us this time! Click here to get the official Defective Geeks bingo cards. Feel free to make your own and share them with us as well!
Don’t know how to play this game? Watch the first round:
May the best con-goer wins. Good luck, geeks!
There are three types of San Diego Comic Con attendees:
1. Pokemon Masters: “I GOTTA CATCH ALL OF THE RARE POKEYMANS/LIMITED GOODS/ COLLECTIBLE ITEMS!!” You’ll see these fine folk lined up in the convention hall awaiting their preciousssss. They probably don’t talk in ALL CAPS but.. they’re THINKING IN ALL CAPS.
2. Die Hards (aka Bruce Willys): “I must attend all pertinent panels, meetings signings, and appearances of the show/series/comic/subculture that I am into. Otherwise, I CANNOT CALL MYSELF A TRUE FAN.”
3. Party Wolves: “Where. Da. Party. At.” Yeah, we sort of care about the other stuff, but mostly we wanna party with our nerdy selves.
Although we here at Defective Geeks are an equal mix of all of these types of nerdy personas, this post will focus on the most obscure of the three… LOS PARTY LOBOS EXTREMOS.
Comic Con is all about fandoms, but it’s also about getting to party with your best nerd pals, and hopefully scoring some free refreshment all while rubbing elbows with celebrities from the series/title/films/books you love. While the list below certainly isn’t comprehensive, it’s definitely refined down to the ones you can actually expect to get into with a wee bit of effort! Remember to pace yourselves, party animals. Thursday has the most parties, and Saturday the least, which means the chances of you maxing out and tossing cookies before the week really gets started are high! BEWARE THE PARTY FOUL. Party responsibly, and bring water with you EVERYWHERE.
And if you wanna know where WE are during the con, we will be all over social media shenanigans, party info, and embarrassing photos:
Party hardy list after the jump!
I was so happy when I found out the All Shapes and Sizes panel was coming to Comic Con. The first time the panel was conducted was at Wondercon and it was such an amazing experience. Leah Cevoli pulled a Nick Fury and assembled a wonderful group of women to discuss the issues of body image in the media and how it affects women in every day life. It was incredible to see this issue discussed in a public forum and I could not have been happier that the discussion was heading to Comic Con.
One of the great things about this panel is the variety of panelists. Just like the title of the discussion, the women on the panel are of all shapes and sizes and cover multiple facets of this issue because of their different roles in the entertainment industry and the geek community.
Friday night of San Diego Comic-con 2013 was legendary. It was possibly one of the best times I’ve had at the convention in all the years I was old enough to “party” during this nerd weekend. We started out at the Radical Studios x Ploom party, hit up Chris Gore’s book/comedy album launch event and then we ended up on a boat with Superman. I think my friends and I will tell and sing tales about that night for many, many moons.
