Jeez, we’ve had a crazy couple of weeks over the last few months. We’re all over the map…literally! And it feels like we haven’t stopped to catch a breath! Right after coming back from a mind-blowing adventure in Japan (peep the photos), we were rushing to New York for the FAN-EXTRAVAGANZA…a.k.a., New York Comic-con.
For us, this is an annual escapade. We’re 5 years in and hoping to make it 5 years more — if we survive the ticket process. If you didn’t get to attend this year because you couldn’t snag tickets, here’s a word of advice: the early bird gets the worm (seriously, it does). Also, teamwork makes the dream work! (yep!) Ok. I’m done, lol. Read below for the tips…
NYCC Ticket Tips:
Tickets usually get released in June. In recent years, they haven’t shared the actual release date beforehand, so like for Beyonce, BE READY. This usually means by June 1st. Don’t miss the ticket release date, otherwise, your chances will be slim.
Follow NYCC on ALL their social media and sign-up for their email list. As annoying as it might be to get their communication blasts, when it’s time, you’ll be totally in the know. They go on communication overload, so just pay attention. They’ll be practically begging you to.
Tell your friends. Having friends is VERY important. We snagged tickets because 6 of us logged into the queue at the same time. Only 1 of us got through. And it made all the difference.
READ. THE. RULES. They change their ticket rules almost every year. If you don’t update yourself, it’s going to be extremely infuriating for you on ticket day when you can’t get your ticket and you see everyone else bragging about their’s on Twitter (us every year, so far, for SDCC. Hopefully 2017 will be our year! *insert teary eyes*).
Hope these tips help you out for next year! If you still don’t get in after doing all of the above, well, blame the con-gods. You just weren’t meant to go. Sorry.
