Screaming, “I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO WEAR!” at the heavens an hour before New York Comic Con opens for the day and you really just need to get some clothes on and leave so you don’t miss everything is both normal and preventable. Unique Geek and Freak Geek will both be attending NYCC this year, here are our recommendations, our outfits, and our tips and tricks for getting ready and looking good as a non-cosplayer.
It’s the very beginning of October, which can only mean one thing – fall con season is in full swing. We’ve got a ridiculous amount of conventions coming up across the United States – New York Comic Con, Geek Girls Con, Stan Lee’s Comikaze, Blizzcon 2013, Pacific Media Expo, and an insanely long list of local anime cons, various comic cons big and small, and oh my god basically all of the cons you can think of and some you can’t. (You’re welcome for those links, by the way.) We’re not exactly con-going experts, but we have learned a few things about cons, which we will pass on to you guys. While we’ve got Unique Geek’s Nerdy Fashion for Cons, we thought this subject needs a little… more. So, um, yeah… Here’s a comprehensive guide on what you should wear, what you should bring, and what you should expect, no matter what con you end up at.
