Ok so I know alot of you guys are going to cons this summer. I have been going to cons for the last 10 years every summer so here are a few tips for ya. Enjoy the shows guys! #1. Bring a DS, PSP, IPhone, comics, Ect. you will be standing in alot of line for alot of time and you will get board. #2. Bring your own food and drinks if you can. You will get hungry and thristy and food and drinks tend to cost alot at shows. #3.Bring Pens, Markers, Paint markers, Ect. Every time I have gone to a con in the past I have meet people just walking around the con center. You will want these people to sign things for you and they wont have anything to sign with. #4. Leave earily for the show. You will want to do this if the dealers room is what your going for. Remember in the dealers room its always first person there gets the toys. #5. Go to pannles. If it is your first show this is really fun and you learn things.Check the cons web site for a list of pannles and plan around the ones you want to see. #6. Talk to people. you will always meet some really cool people at shows. Some times you can buy, sell, and trade with them. This is always a good thing. #7. Before the show sit down and make a list of what you want to get. You should always do this and than look online for the going price of what you want so youknow how much $ to bring with you. #8. Always look around the dealers room first BEFORE you just start buying stuff! Some times dealers will try to rip you off. Shop around chances are another dealer has the same thing for less. #9. Always ask to check things that have tags saying MIB. If the dealer is cool they will let you check it out first to make sure every thing is there. #10. Have fun and take lots of pics. Well there are my tipsfor summer cons. If I left any thing out please feel free to post and add to the list. Everybody enjoy the shows this summer and be safe.
