Fall Comic Con Survival Guide Part 1: What To Bring

Your most comprehensive guide to what you can expect at cons this fall, what you should bring, and what you shoul wear. Great if you're going to NYCC, Comikaze, Anime USA, or Geek Girl Con.

Apparently my answer was bright yellow high heels; that answer was very wrong and painful. Learn from my mistakes–if you’re not cosplaying here are some do’s and don’ts to con fashion. I’ll be rocking some of these this weekend at Wizard World NYC (remind me to stay away from the high heels).
