After some meticulous planning and budgeting (both money and vacation time), I finally mapped out our convention schedule for 2014.
- Mar. 21 - 23: Anime Boston
- Apr. 5 - 6: MoCCA Fest
- June 20 - 22: HeroesCon
- Aug. 8 - 10: Boston Comic Con
- Oct. 9 - 12: New York Comic Con
- Sept. (TBA): MICE (Massachusetts Independent Comics Expo)
- Nov. (TBA): Super MegaFest
BONUS: After booking the flights and hotels yesterday, our expenses for HeroesCon (~$330/person for flight & hotel combined) are more friendly to our bank accounts than San Diego Comic Con (~$800+/person for flight & hotel combined), so like, now I can spend that money on more art/commissions and dumb cosplay stuff and biscuits from Bojangles.
Now that I have to budget my vacation time between Austin trips and conventions and lying around in bed, I have to be more selective with how I want to spend my free time. Although my convention schedule isn’t too drastically different this year, I feel like this convention season will feel more lax than last year’s, especially with a lighter cosplay schedule (though we’re pretty excited for the handful of costumes that we have planned so far~). Likewise, I’m making more of an effort to spend more time with friends during conventions and trips to NYC.
Anyway, what are some cool things to do in Charlotte? We’ll have a little bit of free time the day before HeroesCon, so I’d love to hear some recommendations for local sight-seeing or foodstuffs~
