I’m not going to lie: packing a suit and tie is not necessarily a priority when I prepare for my California trip! The San Diego temperatures demand that I’m usually attired in geek tee and cargo pants! However, this July, one of my favourite SDCC bloggers – and, as it happens, fellow Wrath Of Con Blogger panelist – Megan Gotch, aka The Nerdy Girlie is encouraging attendees to brush up nice for at least one evening, organising quite the swanky do as a SDCC 2015 Off-Site party.
GEEKS GO GLAM will be taking place on the San Diego Public Library patio on Thursday 9th July, from 8pm – all guests are asked to come in glamorous attire. Yup, that includes shirt and tie: time to lose that Dark Bunny Tee for a night, at least. Tickets are about a tenner, with service fee ($15.00 / $16.52 w/service fee) and there’s a whole host of fun and games planned for the night, including live music, a tea party offering of tea, coffee and delicious snacks, a photo booth, a raffle with amazing prizes from your favourite chic nerdy retailers and lots of dancing with other glamorous geeks.
This is the first of the events which Megan – along with her partner for the whole affair, Being Geek Chic – are hoping to make this an annual event so 2015 will be the chance to get in on the ground floor. Look forward to you donning your finest garb for this one: tickets are available as of Thursday 4th June, make sure you get your hands on them before this swish affair sells out…
(When’s OUR party going to happen? Listen, we’re still battling through what we’ve got planned for this year’s Con, we’re not quite there yet – maybe next year! Deal?)
From the Nerdy Girlie release:
‘Geeks Go Glam’ – let’s all start 2015 San Diego Comic Con with a classy party!
Geeks Go Glam is the only party at Comic Con where tuxedos, dresses and high heels are not only encouraged – they are part of the fun. Come in your best nerdy black tie or glamorous nerdy ensemble.
So what’s going to happen? There will be live music, a tea party offering of tea, coffee and delicious snacks, a photo booth, a raffle with amazing prizes from your favorite chic nerdy retailers and lots of dancing with other glamorous geeks.
