Next weekend there is the first annual comic con (ever, for our area).

I cant make a costume Id feel would be worth making in one week (Two Edge or Iron Man.... take your pick, its not happening in a week)

So do I go or not anyway? I know no one going, and not so keen on the comic shop putting it on, but its the only chance to go to one... ever (until next year). Its $55 for all three days, or $25 a day (ish).

Opinions?

Sounds like you are basically interested in going there. And not too eager at the same time. In similar cases I use to ask myself:


What will bother me longer?

Spending money for a comic con where I neither have appropriate duds nor company that will possibly not "pay back" enough fun?

or

Missing the only availabe comic con for 12 month were I might have a good time?

For me this way it's easier to decide.


You know yourself ... maybe it's functioning for you, too. It's a bit like a child that has to decide between several possible playthings / gifts / whatever. When you ask "What's your favorite?" you won't get a final decision - not in an hour. Instead ask: "What's your LESS favorite?" and put it aways one after one ... you will often get a decicion in decent time. It functions surprisingly well.

Go. Have fun and enjoy yourself. You can get an idea of how things are set up at this new comic con. That'll give you time to make your costume for next yr.

Sac Com has grown fast in my area. Sadly I haven't been able to go due to funds and this yr. surgery. I hope to go next yr. I, myself don't dress up as any character. I enjoy just going and seeing different things.

I go to comicons-- but I've never gone in costume. I go to shop for obscure books and posters, and to get things signed by the artists that created them. And to meet the writers and artists I'd admire and just tell them I admire them-- or ask them questions about their work. And to see any friends who may have booths there.

I say... get a buddy to go with you, and... go! Forget the costume. Just enjoy yourself.
