5 Fandom Friday: Conventions I've Been To Or Wish To Attend

Ever since I found San Diego Comic Con in 2009, the nerd convention circuit has been like a drug to me!  At first I loved seeing all the celebrities that I had grown to love over the years.  Then it was the swag, the glorious swag...when those two things faded from my view, I learned that the real reason I loved attending conventions.  It was for the interactions I had with fans just like me!  I had finally found the people who understand what it is like to LOVE something so much!

Here are just a few of the cons that I wish to day!

1.  New York Comic Con.  Besides SDCC, NYCC is the largest convention in the United States.  Bonus points for being in one of the best cities in the world!  I would love to take a return vacation to NYC and enjoy this awesome con while there!

2.  Gallifrey One.  Every Doctor Who fan's dream!  A place where EVERYTHING and EVERYONE is Doctor Who.  A huge plus is that this con is now right down the street from where I live!  I'm looking to attend THIS year if anyone has a ticket they need to get rid of!!

3.  Dragon Con.  I've never been to Atlanta, home to The Walking Dead!  I'm sure along with the con a TWD tour would be in order as well!  PLUS all the fun that happened during THESE Being Human photo ops, I need a piece of that!

4.  London Comic Con.  Yeah this one should have been number one!  England + a nerd convention...pure BLISS!

5.  Denver Comic Con.  I want to attend this con so much because it is where my entire The Nerdy Girlie team lives!!!  I LOVE going to cons with my favorite people and if it can happen twice in one year, all the better!!

I cannot wait to see what cons you all choose!  Share your links in the comments below and tweet me for a RT!  I hope to see you all at a con very soon!

ps NEXT week's 5 Fandom is my favorite and most personal post.  I've been working on it for a couple months, tweaking and changing, adding and subtracting.  I cannot WAIT to share it with you next week!

  1. I didn't even know Doctor Who had its own convention?! Hahah. Well I guess that makes sense :)

  2. Oh my gosh! I have to go to Gallifrey One!!

  3. I forgot to put Dragon Con on my list! Gah!

  4. Gallifrey One sounds amazing :) There is a Dr Who Con held in Wales, I may have to visit one day

  5. Kendall AshleyJanuary 16, 2015

    Oh my word, getting to go to Gallifrey One would be AMAZING.

  6. Gallifrey One and NYCC are on my list too! :D

  7. I added both Dragon con and Denver Comic Con! Maybe we will run into each other there too! One day for NYCC!

  8. Jenn McClureJanuary 16, 2015

    Thanks for introducing me to Gallifrey One!!!!

    Here is my post:

  9. What! London Comic Con? Take me with you! ;) Dragon Con and NYCC are on my list too!

  10. Gallifrey One would be such a great experience - I hope you get to attend!

  11. Getting into Gallifrey One -> the struggle is real

  12. Stephanie AaslandJanuary 16, 2015

    My Gallifrey One mission has officially been solidified in my head now!

  13. Gabriela MenchacaJanuary 16, 2015

    Oooh I didnt know there was a U.S. based Doctor Who con! You need to go so we can drool over your photos! ;)

  14. I would LOVE to go to the one in NYC and London. They just seem like they have the best there. We have one in New Orleans, but it seems wimpy. LOL

  15. I had no idea you guys had a version of Being Human as well! I will have to give it a little nosey, I adored the UK version, so it would be fun to see what you turned it into. I really want to go to London Comic Con this year but we're not free that weekend sadly. Boo! x

  16. The fact that I never went to Dragon con when I lived in SC is haunting me t this day! I'm so angry about it! We got married on the same weekend as SDCC so I'm trying to convince my husband that we need to go there for our anniversary one year!

    I'd love to go to DragonCon and LFCC. LFCC is more realistic for me, being a Brit, but crikey are trains and accomodation expensive down south!

  18. Melissa (Eris)January 17, 2015

    There's a London Comic Con?! I need to go to this : )

  19. Meghan SullivanJanuary 19, 2015

    London Comic Con - heck yes! And I'm dying to head to Atlanta for DragonCon at some point.

  20. I adore the US version! If you can't tell! LOL Sam Witwer is my biggest man crush! xx

  21. DW convention in DW world?! PERF! xx

  22. I never know where I'm gonna be in a YEAR so it's always difficult for me to purchase a year! LOL xx

  23. ClaireabellemakesJanuary 23, 2015

    I definitely want to do London again this year, so much fun!

  24. Mindy NickelJanuary 27, 2015

    Oh, London Comic Con would be a blast! SDCC and Dragon Con are both on my wishlist too :)
