What to Wear San Diego Comic Con

San Diego in the Summer is a fickle beast. The EARLY morning lineup could be cold. Afternoon lines are HOT. Then evening strolls will be cold again with the breeze off the ocean. Lines inside the Convention Center also tend to be on the cool side with the AC. Here I give you my tips to the ladies on what to wear in and around San Diego Comic Con!
{Basics for SDCC}
  • Sunscreen. The sun is hotter than you think. If you are coming from out of town defiantly pack on the sunscreen. Hats are good also good for shade and sharing your fandom.
  • Sunglasses. It gets bright out under the San Diego sun. Plus sunglasses are cool! They are my favorite accessory!
  • A light coat/sweater. Sitting in panels and lines inside gets cool as well as your walk home at night.
  • Badge. This is the MOST important thing to wear at the con. Wear it all times or you will get the boot! If you do lose your badge, you can get it reprinted for a fee. DON'T lose your badge!
  • Comfy shoes are a must, you are on your feet ALL day and possibly night. My favorites are TOMS (they have a new fun Star Wars line!), my Converse, Vans and Born. Bring at least two pairs to switch off everyday.
{SDCC During The Day}
Check out my favorites nerd tee outlets below. I'm big on length and fit so those are factored into my choices. I like the sleeves not too short and the length near my hips. If you need to cuffing the sleeves is a great chic option. The Bender Tee came from a Geek Fuel box, the rest of the Ts in the collage are from Jordandene!
  • Teefury
  • Geek Girl Gang Shop

Geek subscription boxes are also great place to find nerdy tees as well. The Futurama one I'm wearing above is from Geek Fuel.
{SDCC At Night!}
Sherlock Wallpaper Dress by Gold Bubble Clothing.

It is now easier than ever to find cute nerdy AND girlie ways to express your fandom. Keep an eye out in everyday shopping for your Hogwarts house colors. An awesome Sherlock trench. I love to shop at vintage shops and Goodwill. Another great place? Target. Gets me every time!
Deathly Hallow Earrings from Hot Topic.

You can also dress up your regular dresses {Francesca's is my FAVE} with nerdy accessories like bows, necklaces, or earrings.
Need some flair for your jacket, backpack or purse? Check out Craft Boner! She has some awesome nerdy buttons!
Need purse to store it all in?! Check out Sent From Mars! She has the most adorable nerdy and girlie bags!! I die! Also you might have seen how much I love Studio DIY's clutches as well! ;)

Another option??!!
Everyday Cosplay!
Last but not least, get unique! I had a dress made two years in a row out of the famous San Diego Comic Con bags! I can't sew myself, but with the help of my friend, we created two great pieces! But be sure to plan ahead on these types of projects!

Also, don't forget They also have great shirts and some of the ones you miss out on can be found there. I got some great Sherlock and Assassin's Creed III shirts through them. But most of all, your money is going to that artist.
