If we can get this twitter 11,000 followers, we will all get to go to comiccon. Yes you read that correctly.
SPREAD THIS LIKE WILD FIRE.
This guy is the costume creator for the show, so don’t doubt me when I say that this is serious.
For all the times I’ve seen people whine about not being able to go to comic con and now is your chance.
This is absolutely, unequivocally bullshit. This isn’t how Comic-Con tickets work.
I have been going to SDCC since 2009 with my friend, who is an industry professional. Let me take the time to explain how badges work.
If this Hannibal family person has a booth, then he or she will be given an exhibitor badge, and badges for the people to run their booth. Most booths have about 5 or 6 people working for them. Larger booths like Sony or Mattel might get something like 15? No one can get this many tickets as an exhibitor. Bottom line:
exhibitor badges are only for those actively working the booths. “All the fannibals” cannot work one booth, even a big one.
The other options are press and professional. Press would be like photographers and journalists for magazines. MAYBE a press person can get their assistant(s) a badge or two, but they all have to be checked out and be able to prove that they are press, which includes a year minimum’s worth of provable work with said press outlet. Bottom line:
if this person is a press, they can get their own badge, but they cannot get “us” badges.
There are two types of professional badges, industry and creative. Industry means people who work in the industry. My friend was a comic artist who drew comic covers and did other work for brands like Wizards of the Coast. They have been, in recent years, cracking down on the number of guest badges professionals get. Professionals get one guest badge per pro badge. If this person has a professional badge, they can maybe let one other person in. Bottom line:
professionals get one guest badge per pro badge UNTIL GUEST BADGES RUN OUT, which they do. industry professional badges have already sold out, as have the guest badges that come with them.
Creative professional badges are selling out quickly. there is no way to accommodate ”all the fannibals” with creative professional guest badges.
Pre-registration for REGULAR ATTENDEES has already passed, and many badges have sold out. Pre-reg means you have to have attended SDCC at least one year in the past, to enable you to get “early access” to the badges. The most any pre-reg member can purchase, including their own, is 4. Bottom line:
pre-registered regular members can only buy four badges at a time. pre-reg has already passed.
And for the rest of us, those who have never been to SDCC before, there’s the regular badge purchase, which has become known as the lottery. You have to have a comic-con ID (how you log into the site), and you’ll get notified a day or two before the Big Onsale Day. You have to wait in a “waiting room” like chat room. Here’s where the lottery part comes in. No matter how early you get into that chat room, the order you’re let into the actual on sale site is RANDOMIZED, hence lottery, and then you have to purchase them as fast as you possibly can, because they sell. out. FAST. You can only purchase up to 4 badges. Bottom line:
regular members who have never been to comic con before can only buy their own badge and three more.
So really, guys. COMPLETE BOTTOM LINE HERE, from someone who has been to Comic-con a lot of times, and a lot of different ways:
there is absolutely NO WAY for this person to get ALL THE FANS a badge at comic-con. Not even NBC themselves could swing something like this.
this is fake. do not fall for it.
