Slamcon at SDCC 2015 - Still Cool, Still Happening!!

After a long day of walking, standing, or just merely even waiting for panels or autographs at San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC), it is nice to finally have a party to go to at the end of the day to chill out, or to catch up with the friends you have not managed to meet yet!

And for all these purposes, Slamcon is one of the best parties at SDCC to hang out in! For those who are uninitiated to what Slamcon is, it is a free, all-inclusive party open to everyone, and the brainchild of a bunch of actors and comic creators - Todd Stashwick, Brea Grant, Dennis Calero and Deric A. Hughes.

Slamcon started in 2011 at the Hyatt Mezzanine with some of Red Dot Diva's good friends attending the party. (For a more detailed story, refer to the blog post here!) It was the year Red Dot Diva was not able to head to SDCC because she had just lost her day job.

She managed to attend SDCC and Slamcon for the next 3 years together with her convention buddies. During those times they attended the party, they have met all the Slamcon founders, actress/ writer Amber Benson, and last year, both Jared Padalecki and Misha Collins hung out at the shingdig too!

SDCC 2014: Diva's Top 5 Squee-tastic Famous People Moments

It is pretty obvious by now that it doesn't take very much for Red Dot Diva to Squee. In her opinion, there's simply no shame in being a multi-lusting fangirl. So long one doesn't get too creepy or abusive. Those types of behaviour are by far a big no-no. In fact, being a successful fan-person takes a lot of skills.

Pop-culture conventions are great places for collecting and having Squees. The blotting out of geographical barriers between well-known personalities and their fans (and sometimes press folks) creates many giddy celebrity moments.

From the planned to the serendipitous, here's a list of Red Dot Diva's Top 5 Squee-tastic Moments at Comic-Con 2014 (not in order of highest to lowest Squees):

SDCC 2013: Where Da Parties At??

Not only does San Diego transform into geek nirvana during Comic-Con, her nightlife gets as vibrant, with a slew of party venues for the geek and famous.

After the endless waiting in lines, jostling around with thousands of people, and craning one's necks to have a glimpse of your favourite celeb, almost anyone would feel in need of a drink (or two), or to let loose at a party before repeating the same thing again the next day.

So where are Da Cool Parties at for this year's Comic-Con?

SDCC 2012: Are You Ready to PARTY?

After walking the cavernous San Diego Convention Centre halls for hours (actually running would be more like it), tired out SDCC attendees usually decide to either crash on their beds at the end of the day, or quickly freshen up and camp out for the next day's events.

But for some "energizer bunny" type people, there are parties and more parties to go to!

Here are some of the parties that will be happening at this year's Comic-Con:

1. 38th Annual Comic-Con Masquerade Ball
Sat, July 14, 8:30 PM
Ballroom 20, San Diego Convention Center

This is an annual event and a key segment of Comic-Con itself. It is a talent competition specially for the folks who have spent days and months labouring on their costumes and skits.
