Volunteer Ideas

If you just have to be part of the scene and cant wait until next year consider contacting Comic-Con vendors to see if you can work / volunteer in their booth or better yet just come to San Diego and hang out outside the convention center – the Gaslamp Quarter really heats up in the evenings!  It is rumored that last year more than 50,000 visitors came to San Diego without tickets just to be at the epicenter of fun.  And finally, even if you can't make the journey to San Diego to be a part of the largest pop culture convention on the West Coast, let Party Idea Pros help bring the festivities to you — Host your own Comic-Con Party!

Plan for your Comic Con Experience

Survival Guide – what to bring

  • pens
  • Comic books or magazines you would like signed
  • A light snack and a bottle of water (this will allow you to avoid the over priced, mediocre food sold at the convention center)
  • Your credit card and cash –just in case the credit card machines are down or you happen upon a vendor who only accepts cash
  • Wear comfortable walking shoes (preferably flat and with good support. Slightly large is good –your feet will have room to swell.  Consider bringing a second pair of shoes that fit slightly differently.  The change will feel good.  And just in case, throw in a pack of blister bandages
  • Pre-printed Address Labels — Why? To avoid having to fill out all the forms for newsletters, mailing lists, raffles, and contests.  Yes — this is a brilliant idea!  Prices vary depending on current promotions but we highly recommend checking out Zazzle My Own Labels, and even Checks Unlimited.
  • Patience – remember many of the workers are volunteers who are trying their best but just might not have the information you are seeking. Chances are all your Comic Con dreams are not going to come true.  If you live in the moment and adjust your expectations accordingly, you will vastly improve your  overall conic con experience

Comic Con Parties and Celebrations

Since the scope of comic con is so vast, we were not sure where to begin.  So rather than trying to stuff every comic book, sci-fi adventure, and every other pop cultural phenom into one post we are breaking Comic-Con into manageable bits.
