I think #SDCC really worked the kinks out. (Four day badges sold out, I’m 31,000th in line.)
Here’s the thing. I’ll probably get a professional badge. I’m fine. But I *like* to buy the badge and I like to support the event.
And I also like to know just how difficult it is for regular fans to get in now. The answer? It seems like it’s a nightmare.
Anyway, I’m going back to bed. Or watching DC Nation. Or sleeping on the couch to find as DC nation plays in the background.
Either way, if you were struggling to get a badge, know this: You were not alone.
My twitter friend Jill (@TheNerdyBird on twitter) makes an excellent point. Had I bought this badge, and had I the ability to get a four day professional pass, I would have been taking the purchased pass from someone who needed to pay for it to get it.
I honestly didn’t think of it that way. I’m glad I didn’t get the badge.
We’ll see if I qualify for pro this year - all my stuff has been live action kids and not sci-fi/super hero - but to that end, it was a point well made and one I will remember in subsequent cons. I appreciate her making it.
And people say you can’t learn things from the internet. :)
