SDCC 2013 pt 2

Hey Everyone, 

I was lucky to have another insider at this years SDCC. My friend from elementary school, Diandra, attended this year and shared some great info. 

1. Tell me a little bit about yourself?

I'm 31 years old. I'm a New Jersey native who just moved to San Diego because my husband got a new job. I'm a special education teacher looking for a job. I love my family, my dogs, music, movies, TV, meditation and yoga. I like hiking and bicycling with my husband and there's so many places here in SD! My dreams are to surf, be able to play a full round of golf and do it well and maybe learn to play the drums. 

2. Why did you decide to go to this years Comic Con?

I decided to go to this year's Comic Con because we live in San Diego and I've heard how fun it was for years. We were lucky enough to be invited by an HBO talent relations executive because my husband used to work for HBO. 

3. Were there any panels you were looking forward to in particular? Did you take part in any particular activity? Were there any exclusives you were looking forward to and how crowded was it?

We went on a whim so I didn't do any research as to what panels were going on the day we were there. The panel lines were insane and I don't think there's anything I would've waited for. However we did go to a panel for a show on Cinemax called Strike Back because they're a part of HBO and we were invited. It was very cool! There was a moderator who worked for TV Guide leading the panel and they allowed the audience to ask questions. We walked through a panel that was insanely packed and there was a big TV screen showing the people. Turned out it was for the Avengers and we saw Samuel L. Jackson on the screen. 

4. Did you meet any celebrities?

I wouldn't say I "met' her but I got a picture with Adrienne Curry. She was on Next Top model and Surreal Life and ended up marrying the guy who played Peter Brady. She's a proud video game nerd and goes to CC every year dressed scantily clad. From the picture you can see how seriously she takes it. I wanted to find her and I got lucky because my husband spotted her and then I ran over and asked her for a picture. 

5. Anything else that you enjoyed about Comic Con?

People watching at CC was phenomenal. Unfortunately my phone died and I didn't get nearly as many pics as I would've if it were my choice. 

6. Anything else you would like to share? Have you been to any other “Cons” and planning to go to more this year?

It was an amazing experience and so much fun! I've never been to one before and would love to go back next year!!

Thank you so much Diandra for your awesome insider info!
