Fake San Diego Comic-Con

If you are unable to attend an exciting convention, one can attend vicariously through the internet. Enough attendees twitter, flickr and blog and their experiences to give those at home a good feel for what they are missing. If you want to take a more active role while sitting on your couch (or behind a desk) you can attend the fake version of the convention.

After seeing fakesxsw posts from people who couldn't be at SXSW, I started up fakeSDCC, a stay-at-home shadow-con for San Diego Comic-con. Part convention satire, part larp, people are playing along, pretending their work desk is a guest signing table or posting about their clever memorabilia finds.

Play along on your blog or twitter, if you want, and I'll save you a seat in the Thundercats/Voltron crossover movie panel.

Thundercats - Voltron crossover? And here I thought it was going to be a Thundercats - Bearcats crossover.

Unless... do you mean... can it be true... antique race cars which combine into giant robots? Oh! Oh! TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE!!!

Oh, wait. Too good to be true. I guess that's the whole point of #fakeSDCC, innit?
