Yamacon 2016!

 

Yamacon LogoYamacon is one of those conventions that you look forward to all year long. Ever since it moved to its new location at the La Conte center, Yamacon has been one that I really can’t wait to attend. Not to say that the old location (now used as the night time venue known as Senpai central) was bad, but the convention had definitely outgrown the smaller center. One thing that really draws me to this convention is the star studded guest lineup. Every year they simply boggle my mind with the voice actors and guests that they manage to round up. Yamacon is simply a convention that you need to experience if you live in the area! Continue reading

Survival Guide: San Diego Comic-Con International

cci2015

Since the creation of Golden State Comic-Con (now well-known as the San Diego Comic-Con International) by Shel Dorf, Richard Alf, Ken Krueger, Mike Towry and Greg Bear back in 1970 drew 300 attendees at the U.S. Grand Hotel, El Cortez Hotel and UCSD. Now, that number of attendee’s have increased by a very dizzying 150,000 while the venue also have changed to the San Diego Convention Center since 1991. Since then, talks of expanding the convention center have been in the somewhat ongoing between the City of San Diego and the Board Members of SDCCi.

Since the capacity of the convention center have been filled to the top, many of the supporting vendors (i.e. Microsoft, Nintendo, AMC, Marvel Studios and many others) have opted to rent out hotel conference rooms, local restaurants and bars all over Downtown San Diego. Since more walking is now involved, (along with many other things!) this is what I do, this my survival guide that I will share with you all on this crazy 4 day event! Continue reading
