Sadly, Sunday was the last day of SDCC, but it was another wonderful day at the con. My day began at 7:30am when my friend and I lined up to possibly get standing room tickets for Stephen Amell’s Nerd HQ panel at Petco Park. We were an hour and a half early for the panel and there was no guarantee that they would sell standing room tickets, but we really wanted to see Stephen up close.
After waiting in line for an hour, Zachary Levi and Stephen Amell walked into the stadium and briefly said hello to the fans. Shortly after that, they announced that there would be 50 standing room tickets for the panel and my friend and I were the 45th and 46th people in line. We made it though!
Day 3 of SDCC is the biggest day of the Con, but since I did not have a ticket for Saturday, it was my slowest day of the week.
My day started at 8am when a friend and I lined up to sign up for The Walking Dead Bbq. We were super excited for the bbq because there was another Walking Dead Bbq on Friday and the whole cast showed up. To be eligible for the bbq you needed to tweet a picture of yourself next to the Terminus sign at Comic Con and then be one of the first 200 people in line with that tweet at 9am. We got to the line in time and got your wristbands, but the event wasn’t as great as we thought it would be. (More on that later).
Even though I did not have a ticket to actual Comic Con that day, Friday was by far my favorite day of Comic Con. This is mainly because of Zachary Levi’s (Chuck) Nerd HQ event that happened all weekend at Petco Park across the street from the San Diego Convention Center.
