San Diego Comic-Con Is Coming Soon—Here's All the Geeky Gear You Need


San Diego Comic-Con kicks off soon (preview night is July 24, then the con runs through July 28), so it’s time to start thinking about what you’re going to bring. Here’s a guide to help you sort out your to-do list for the annual fandom pilgrimage. 

When it comes to packing, BoxLunch and Loungefly have you covered. Loungefly just dropped full size nylon backpacks featuring Spider-Verse, Beetlejuice, and Jurassic Park. For a statement piece Sprayground dropped a limited edition Looney Tunes collection that looks stylish and comes outfitted with a harder shell to protect your tech. For something more on the go, BoxLunch debuted new releases for Deadpool and Wolverine, like a Deadpool Quilted Emblem Mini Backpack and a Deadpool tactical pouch with room for a water bottle, because it’s essential to stay hydrated. Our water bottle picks are these Corkcicle matching Deadpool and Wolverine canteens for you and your bestie.  Pro-tip: don’t forget to pack hydration boosters like Liquid IV for the long day stretches and early morning wake-up calls after those nighttime con parties.

To combat that infamous con-stank Dr. Squatch has you covered with a Star Wars soap set you can split with your friends. There’s also a really great travel skincare routine inspired by Pixar’s Inside Out 2 by Bubble for those of us with anxiety; it covers every step needed. Waking up on the go with a fresh start is vital!

Those Hall H lines are going to be back in full force, and experienced SDCC attendees know that roughing it is out of the question. Home Depot has a number of items to consider. It’s time to treat line-waiting like camping with an inflatable camping sleeping pad that’s easy to set up on concrete and roll up when the line gets moving. Also check out these Philips Solar Color Changing Portable Lanterns for when it gets dark, and portable fans for the inevitably sunny San Diego days.

And for sleeping, even in Southern California nights can get cold, so we recommend this Batman Forever-inspired Riddler set that comes with a cozy long-sleeve and sweats. For those who want more of a loungewear look, we have to recommend this romantic Lore Olympus Persephone satin set with a tank, shorts and robe from Heroes & Villains. And one last, very important thing for your list: don’t forget power banks and accessories for your phone. Casetify has on-theme options like this Jujutsu Kaisen magsafe portable charger or Donald Duck power stand.
