Packing for Girls is harder than it looks

Hello, I'm new here. Enough with the introductions.

For the past several years, I've been trying to get tickets to THE Comic-Con in San Diego. You hear stories about how they sell out in half an hour (which is true), but what they don't tell you is how the website gets so clogged that even if you managed to load the page that lets you get tickets, the odds of loading the next page to actually pay is near impossible.

This year, however, they tried something a little different. It still involved complete luck on getting the website to load, but with a large team at my side, I was finally able to get tickets.

Phew!

Now six months later I'm completely freaking out. What do I pack!? What should I wear!? Will I do ANYTHING I want to do or spend the whole time waiting in line to find out I'm screwed!?

I only have tonight and tomorrow night to pack and am completely going insane. My $1,000 budget for the week was dramatically cut when I was forced to get a hotel last minute. That means more brought food and less gross take-out, which probably isn't a bad thing. STILL! Packing is a nightmare.

Stay tuned for plenty of Comic-Con related posts, including a fancy podcast I'll throw together while I'm there. Photos and videos will also be provided.

Now the important question - what shoes will I bring?
