fan conventions, covid-adjacent

WonderCon’s website still shows dates for March, but I don’t think there’s any chance of holding a convention in Anaheim that soon, and I wouldn’t go even if they did.

They also haven’t been selling tickets. I’d guess they’ll announce soon that it’s been cancelled again.

I doubt July will be feasible for San Diego, either. And SDCC feels unsafely crowded in *normal* years. Even in the best-case scenario, my anxiety would go through the roof.

Fall, maaaaybe. Depending on how well the vaccines ramp up and how bad the variants get.

Long Beach was scheduled for September, but their website’s not responding. I’m a bit worried that as a smaller con, they just aren’t able to keep the business side of things intact for two years without events.

So it’s looking like another year without going to any cons. Maybe just as well – I’m sure I’ll have to ramp up my sense of what size crowd feels ok anyway.
