So excited, in fact, we’ve got to take a bit of a blog-break July 2-8 get ourselves ready for the biggest convention we’ve ever attended together (yes, the London branch and California branch are reuniting and it feels so good!).
Thanks to your generous donations, consistent readership and encouragement, four of the Collective Bloggers will be attending the most famous pop culture convention in the world and covering the event for YOU. There is so much to do and see at the con and we have been working diligently to make sure we get the content you want to see at the convention we all want to be at.
There are so many great films, television shows, comics and fan events taking place, it’s going to be difficult to see all of them, but we have a plan. The Collectress plans to focus on queer representation, the Spaniard will be looking at diversity in the industry and I am gonna rock my feminist agenda and focus on women in pop culture. We have a few definite events on our itinerary that we are looking forward to sharing, starting with the SuperWiki Wayward Cocktails party on Thursday at 7:30pm at the Analog Bar. Admission ranges from $10-$250, with various benefits coming with each pricing tier. On Friday, we all plan on braving as many hours of the Marvel Television Presents line as it takes to see Hayley Atwell, Clark Gregg and the rest of the cast of Marvel’s big television hit shows Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Carter. Saturday, the Collectress plans on attending the Mobilizing Fandoms panel, featuring philanthropic organizations who use fandom for charity work, including our favorite, Random Acts and GishWHeS. Sunday brings us to the SUPERNATURAL panel in the dreaded Hall H, which means you will find the Collective Bloggers camping out on San Diego sidewalks Saturday night in order to get inside to see the show. Stop by, say hello, share a cuppa (maybe Misha will bring coffee again) and get ready for the madness, because I have a feeling SDCC is going to be wild.
If you haven’t yet, click the link to the right of the page to donate to The Collective. We will write fanfic for you, advertise your blog on twitter, cover a panel of your choosing or send you some really cool geek gear, if you do. Check out our prize tier and donate, pretty please. Even $1 helps!
