5 Fandom Friday: Goin’ to Con

Oh me oh my, in my little life I’ve only ever been to the last 3 NYCC’s!  This prompt was hard to figure out because I’m not really sure what’s out there as far as Cons even GO, so I included some other fandom-related places I’d like to go as well.

1.  NYCC ’15  is a given, Hello, DUH!  Last year I really loved NYCC more than ever before – we really should keep this ball rolling, yeah?

2.  San Diego Comic Con  is everyone’s dream, right?  I’ve never been but I hear tales told of how uplifting, warm, and welcoming the con is and oh hey not to mention a trip out Californy-way does sure sound appealing to a NYer in the middle of Januareyoukiddingme it’s freakin’ cold!  So yeah.


3.  The Doctor Who Experience
  is in Cardiff (ha! Cardiff) so it’s not as easy to attend but is now on my bucket list after reading online reviews!  Bessie!  Daleks!  DAVROS?!  Makes me wanna cuddle up with some classic Who for the rest of the afternoon…

4.  The Wizarding World of Harry Potter
  made it onto my list of must-sees after seeing someone’s Instagrams of their visit over the holidays.  How sweet would it be to spend a day indulging my inner child on Butterbeer and roller coasters?

5.  Jack the Ripper Tour of London
  as a tour guide – a ghost tour guide, no less – I’m always getting asked if I’ve ever been on any other ghost tours and the sad fact is no.  Logistically, it’s impossible: if I were to go on other tours, who would give my tours?  Right?  Logic, people.  But if possible, Jack the Ripper ranks high on the list of tours I’d like to take – a geographically more likely alternative would be a historical tour of Boston or the Amityville Horror house.

I’m curious to hear what conventions everyone else is dying to attend/planning to attend this year!
