Wow. This year's comic con was even better than last year with a lot of fixes.  No more long, painful lines for exclusives.  They had a ticket system where all you need to do is arrive first to pickup limited exclusive tickets for a particular collectible or autograph and still be able to enjoy the booths, panels and rooms.

There were 2 different lines you can wait in before they open to enter at different sides of the convention center to get to the wanted ticket line faster (No Running Allowed!).

It was basically seperated into 3 sections, comic books, vendors/sponsors, and original art. Panels, game rooms and other rooms were upstairs.
Sanrio had 3 exclusives to pick from along with an autograph session. Buy Sanrio Exclusives from Comic Con Here

Hot Wheels revealed their Star Wars Collection.

Disney revealed a record that creates a 3D hologram Tie Fighter.

Don't forget all the cosplayers.

Bait sold out of their exclusives fast. Check out this Bait Felix the Cat collaboration. Get Bait Exclusives from Comic Con 2016 Here

What is it like to goto a Transformational Festival? Woogie Weekend 2016 Event Coverage

Somewhere between a Burning Man burner and a Electric Daisy Carnival raver, is a transformational festival goer.

After an 8 mile local drive off the 22 freeway, you will enter a dirt road where security will check your trunk and car and move you along to a dirt lot where you will park and pick-up your bracelet either from your eventbrite pass or by paying cash.

You will get back into your car and continute to drive up the road to the general lot (along with the campsites and RV parking).

Walk through Gate 3 and you will see the main stage (Hive) on the right.

Continue walking to see original art work, hammocks and a lake.

Get to the end, and you will see a giant slip and slide and the Woogie Weekend lawn sign.

Come back up the other side and pass by clothing vendors, food and drink vendors, popsicle carts and porta-potties.

Once you get your pass, you will be directed to the South Hall Lobby. In the past, this area was open to the public but this year they have closed it to people with passes only probably due to capacity as well as security. This is where most of the Cosplay Photography is happening.

Make your way to the Exhibit Hall up the escalator for the Vendor booths, Art Booths, and Sponsor Stages.

Once you exit, walk through the hall past the campass cafe to the Entertainment hall on the other side where you will find game tournaments, Cosplay Backdrops and a mini-car show that is new this year.

Once your done, you can spend time in the lounges, Anime viewing rooms and speaker panels.

Don't forget to grab some food at the food truck court outside.

Electric Daisy Carnival 2016 Las Vegas EDC

Electric Daisy Carnival 2016 Las Vegas EDC

EDC Walk-through

Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) has become one of the country's largest raves. Tickets can be bought at http://www.electricdaisycarnival.com or if you wait until the last minute, stubhub.com  Don't forget to get a EDC shuttle pass and book a hotel early as those sell out as well.  We picked MGM as that is one of the EDC shuttle stops which also has one of the shortest wait lines.

(see the Full Gallery Here)
Be sure to get tickets early as the price goes up and eventually sell-out. Re-selling tickets can be a pain as they mail them to you late. I received mine the Monday the week of the event.

Shuttles are great because they take you through a different route that cuts through an airforce base to get you to the event faster (about 1 hr).  I brought headphones for the trip there and slept on the way back.

When you arrive, pick the shortest bag check line, and scan your bracelet for entry.

 

 

Once you are in, consider dropping by the Merchandise booths first as items are limited and they offer different items every day.

Take a lap around the event and check out the outside stages and then the inside ones/carnival area. Games in the carnival were free to play and they had Wifi access there. There are air conditioned indoor areas in  and surrounding the Carnival area.
