Goodbye Santa,Hello Stan Lee

Whatever holiday you celebrate at the end of the year by now you should have put away all your decorations unless you're one of those people who keeps em up all year round,yeah there are folks who do that. Well the holiday season is over and it's time to prepare for Con season!!! By "Con" im referring to comicbook/scifi conventions.
There are Cons in every major city and even small towns and there's conventions for every taste.Most Cons cover everything but there are ones dedicated to one thing like Star Wars,Star Trek and believe it or not even a con just for My Little Pony. Conventions start as early as this month all the way to November just Google your city I'm sure you'll find one either in your town or near by.If you feel like visiting one of the major cons like San Diego ComicCon,Dragoncon or one of the Wizard World cons you need to get moving because alot of hotels for those are selling out already.The best way to experience a con is with a group of friends you can split hotel cost and plan out the weekend with panels and partys.All cons are not the same some are big "corporate" types and some are more relaxed and laid-back but I can say I haven't had a bad experience yet.What makes cons so fun is the fact that you'll be surrounded by people who share your interest I've ran into total strangers at conventions and had a great time with them.Seeing all the cosplayers,creators,artist and such is cool but the best part is just hanging with like minded people talking comics,movies,etc.is so much fun. You should budget for the Con you attend cause between the hotel,food,drinks and paying for art work and souvenirs it can get expensive.
So if you've never been to a con what are you waiting for see if there's one near you and check it out or get with friends you'll have a fun time and might meet your favorite artist,writer or actor like Stan Lee.Trust me it's something you won't forget so between now and November give atleast one con a try.
Until next time my friends stay geeky and hungry.
