Dallas Fan Days October 20-22

Calling all Super Nerds! Dallas Fan Days is coming October 20-22 to the Irving Convention Center. Guests from Riverdale, Stranger Things, Game of Thrones, and Dr. Who are all planned to be in attendance.

The October event of Dallas Fan Days is one of my favorite conventions. Not only is the Irving Convention Center an optimal place for a convention, but this show always has something for everyone. If this is your first convention, or you have never been to the Irving Convention Center, please see my Beginner’s Guide for FAQ!

Staying true to the “comic” aspect of Comic Cons, Dallas Fan Days has an exceptional range of comic creators, artists, and comic book professionals who are always excited to meet their fans and share the excitement for comic book culture.

Costumes are in no shortage for this show. However, it is totally not necessary to be in cosplay. Most people at the shows are simply rocking their favorite nerdy shirt and jeans – and this is perfect!

If you’re planning on wearing a costume, but don’t know where to start, think about your favorite fandoms and choose a character that is true to you! Never feel pressured to wear a specific costume just because everyone else is. If you’re wearing a costume, chances are people will want to talk to you about the character you are dressed as, and nothing is worse than trying to converse with people about a character you know nothing about! Chances are someone will recognize the character you are dressed as, and getting to talk to someone who is as excited about a fandom as you are is the goal!

Dallas Fan Days always has a solid Artist Alley. This is the best place to find unique pieces of art to make your walls pop! Pro Tip: I tend to pick up a couple new pieces of art at every show. There is no way that I would ever have enough wall space (or money for frames) for everyone! Instead, I picked up a Portfolio book from Hobby Lobby that is filled with over 100 clear pages that I can slip the art into. This makes a fantastic book to keep on my coffee table. Guests love flipping through it, and I love telling them all about the amazing artists!

Whatever you plan to do, make sure you have fun! Sometimes, the best part of the convention is getting great photos together, and wandering the vendors room basking in everything nerdy. Cheers and enjoy the con!

Travel in Style to Dallas Conventions and more!

The Dallas Fan Days convention is held at the Irving Convention Center from October 20 to the 22, and it can definitely be viewed as a holiday in the eyes of some locals and tourists.

For those that love the convention experience, you know that there’s a lot that goes into preparing for this event, especially if you’re somebody who participates in cosplay. However, even if you’re just attending for the panels, vendors, and people watching, there’s still a bit of organization that needs to take place for a truly seamless experience from start to finish. The addition of professional transportation to any convention experience is a great way to ensure convenience, especially if there’s a group involved.

Quality vehicles offer more than just a way to get from one point to the next, especially when you consider the features that elevate the transportation experience. There’s a ton of room on board party buses and limousines, and this is perfect for those who have bulky costumes. It’s equally as easy to rest as it is to socialize on board, and this is especially helpful for those who plan on staying at the convention all day. You wont have to deal with the task of finding a parking spot or battling traffic when you consider the chauffeur that will be around for the ride! As far as features are concerned, you can stream one of your favorite playlists with the attached auxiliary cord or your favorite movie with the flat panel television screens.

Your adventure doesn’t have to stop at the convention center! With your reserved block of time, you’re able to hit the town, go back to your hotel, or head home. It’s completely up to you, and that’s the beauty of it! If you’re worried about the affordability of a Dallas party bus or limousine, consider splitting the overall cost among a group of passengers. This will give you an affordable rate that’s comparable to a local ride share service.

In the end, you’ll be supremely glad that you took this step to prepare for your convention experience, and you’ll surely do the same for next years festivities. If you’re looking for a trustworthy company, be sure to check out DFW Party Bus & Limo.
