ask away! this tumblr is dedicated to helping you get the answers you need to have the best convention experience possible - especially if it’s your first one!
Click to download the Bloodhound app, where you can pull up the convention event, see the schedule (when its posted), see who’s going, and other cool stuff all from your phone! I suggest sticking your seat and breakfast table numbers in your profile description so we can find each other!
I never brought this topic up on this blog, but I thought it would be a good thing to go over. I’m going to try and put together a post of suggestions for people with allergies to foods who are traveling to conventions. I myself have celiac, so I can’t have any wheat - a near impossibility for basic con food. So, drop me an ask, let me know about your food allergies, and if you’ve been to a con before share some tips and advice for what you did as well!
seeing as how I was without internet at my grandparents today, this is what I did on my laptop
Going to your first convention alone? Did friends bail on you last minute? Well have no fears, there’s always the extended Supernatural family to fall back on in times of need!

Thank you all so much for sending in questions! I’ve used a lot of them in the basic 411 pieces I’m writing for this blog. The questions that were not covered will be answered in turn - as soon as I have concrete answers for you. Some of you asked very good questions that involve a little investigating myself which I am happy to do, so they might take a little bit longer but they will be answered to the best of my knowledge. Some, I’m going to ask for you guys to help me answer. I’ll be posting my basic guides for conventions first, though. There are a couple themes I’m following, so once those are written and posted, I’ll start answering more specific questions. After that, I’ll post a guide for each upcoming convention (starting with the soonest) and begin a tag system for each convention so you guys can check in on the ones you’re attending with a simple click. We’ll regularly check to update you guys with news on added guests, events, and other kinds of things. You can continue submitting questions, as long as I’m running this blog, I’ll be helping you guys with answers! In addition, I’ll start accepting post submissions once the tags system is set up and running for seasoned con-goers to share their advice too! I want this to help everybody with their convention experiences to make the most out of it! I’m nearly finished with most of my 411 posts so anticipate them coming very soon!
While I get this up and running - what would you like to see covered? I want to make an FAQ post to start us off, or at least cover the basics to get the ball rolling.
This blog is dedicated to sharing tips, tricks and advice to other Supernatural fans who are attending one of the many conventions. We’ll be sharing deals, helping you guys meet up or split rooms, announcing news (such as guests added, events changing et cetera), advice on what to be prepared for, and anything in between. We’ll have dedicated tag systems for relevant information about specific cons to read through. Please feel free to use the askbox to submit questions to us right now - we want to know what you want to see covered in our FAQ! Soon after the FAQ gets posted, we’ll be asking you guys to share your own advice in our submissions box - but not until we at least cover the basics first.
So please, ask away and recommend us to your con-attending friends! We’re here to help.
