Comic lovers unite! The annual Comic-Con convention brings all sorts of personalities together to express their interest and infatuation with the a world beyond ours. Each year, Comic-Con visits different cities across the U.S. including Chicago, Dallas, Seattle, New York City, Phoenix and San Diego. Fans can come together and celebrate their comic book heroes, who sometimes eventually morph onto the big screen.
The Comic-Con sells out every year, and consistently dwarfs similar events such as Wonder-Con (a competing comic book/science fiction convention). Each day of the festival is an opportunity for self-proclaimed geeks to dress as their favorite comic book character, movie hero or pop culture icon. Needless to say, women’s costumes can get really, really sexy. Thank goodness, right guys? Pretty much anything goes except for nudity. As Newyorkcomicon.com so eloquently states in their costume contest FAQ, “Naked is not a costume.”
Be a Sexy Little Kitten
Comic-Con is a hot girl’s dream. Dressing like Cat Woman, Wonder Woman or the infamous Slave Princess Leia from Star Wars may not be appropriate for a regular day at the office. However, it’s completely acceptable (and appreciated) at Comic-Con. With the vast amount of options, you can find sexy costumes from Yumdrop online, browse at your local costume store, or make your own unique costume at home.
Advanced Planning is Necessary
Get your costumes in advance. There is no way you can decide to go to Comic-Con at the last minute because the tickets sell out. This gives you plenty of time to plan in advance. Try browsing through Comic-Con photos online for inspiration. It’s not a bad idea to consider using the same costume for Halloween. Get the full benefit of your hotness.
One important thing for every hot girl to consider when choosing a costume is comfortable footwear. Anyone who has ever attended Comic-Con knows that hours of standing in line to get a seat for a panel, snag an autograph or use the bathroom is hard on the feet. All the walking only adds to the hassle. While strutting from your far-off parking space and strolling the enormous event grounds can make the decked out ladies feel sexy everywhere except for their feet. Cushioned inserts help make high-heeled boots tolerable, but choosing supportive footwear is worth the extra shopping time.
The Accessory of Choice
Although it might not be authentic to your character’s look, every Comic-Con attendee should bring a big handbag to hold all of the swag you’re likely to get. Vendors give out posters, buttons, stickers, sample comics and tons of other free stuff.
Carry poster tubes and rubber bands in your car to protect any autographed materials you purchase. Even hot superhero chicks cannot trust their sidekicks to hold precious photos and posters without damaging them.
Some advice from the geeked out professional: Plan early, expect delays, go with someone who’s been there before, stake out your preferred panels and most importantly, relish in your geek-hood.
