Are you ready? I know, that is a question never to ask anyone who is going after a Comic Con badge, especially on the day. Comic Con doesnt have the most user friendly purchasing system, but someway, somehow, it works. Though not everyone will say that it does. By now everyone has all of their links to where they will be able to get into a landing page in the morning. It is here where the stress truly truly sets in for some.

Watching the spinning wheel, seeing the tweets from people who just scored the most awesome badge ever possible and then more waiting. For anyone who hasn’t attended comic previously they really have no idea what goes into not only obtaining a badge, but securing a hotel. That though is a whole different post.

Make sure you have breakfast, have some coffee. Get in the waiting room, set your computer settings so it won’t turn off on you. Be plugged in, charged up and know all your passwords. Have your credit card information.

If you are lucky you have some friends who are also in the rankings to score a badge, and they too shall have an opportunity to purchase a couple badges. Stay connected.  Stay calm.

There is just a little over 9 hours left until the chaos begins. Best of luck to all of you.
