    Jackie Kessler’s Top 10 Dragon*Con Tips

    Yep, another Dragon*Con has come and gone. Here are my Top 10 Dragon*Con tips. Pictures and more to follow (much) later.

    #10 – A belt is not a skirt.
    #9 – If a belt is a skirt, underwear is not optional.
    #8 – If you need the “up” elevator, grab the “down” car and ride down, then go up. Much faster. Seriously.
    #7 – If you see a sign that reminds people to shower, you know you’re in trouble.
    #6 – Deodorant, like good accessories, is a must. MUST, people.
    #5 – If you are dressed as the Grim Reaper, do not enter a door scythe first.
    #4 – When conning, the four food groups tend to be caffeine, pizza, buffet and beer. Mmm. Breakfast of champions.
    #3 – If you expect the hotel room to be soundproof, HAHAHAHAHAH.
    #2 – If you’re an author, bring swag. Swag, swag, swag, swag, swag.
    And my #1 Dragon*Con tip: You have not been to Dragon*Con until you’ve seen at least 1 Princess Leia Slave Girl. Now you are a man, my son.

    3. Jackie, I believe that #8 is indeed the Dragon*Con Law of Physics.

    5. My top ten as a DragonCon virgin!

      #10 There is an end to the registration line at DragonCon.
      #09 More people Pre-Register so longer line, if you are paying day of cash line is 1/4 that of credit card line.
      #08 You will lose things, 4 pens, and my backup memory card for my digital camera.
      #07 Don’t worry if you get lost on day one, everybody gets lost.
      #06 If your using the Marta train, pray to whomever that a Braves game hasn’t just gotten over. I now know what a sardine in a can feels like.
      #05 Floss should never be used as an undergarment, even if it is industrial strength.
      #04 Things happen that can’t be helped. Anthony Daniels on day 1 got lost and didn’t make it to his panel, etc. etc.
      #03 Don’t be ashamed to take Peanut Butter & Jelly sandwiches with you. They are fulfilling, cheap, & Mmmm so good!
      #02 Get plenty of rest because falling alseep during a panel and being called out on it is embarrassing.
      #01 No matter what refuse to go to a club the night before DragonCon, even if helping young women pay for their college tution feels good, you end up with allot less money for the rest of the weekend.

    7. LMAO I love your tips!

      Also I just wanted to say it was a pleasure meeting you at Comic Con. I just finished Black and White and I must say it was amazing. I love the book so much. The world needs more strong female rolemodels, flawed or not. I can’t wait for the next book to come out!
