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.
PLEASE REBLOG TO GET THIS INFORMATION OUT
My guess is that this is a phishing scam to try to get themselves more followers, they have falsely claimed that they work on costumes with Hannibal by “mailing designs in”. I may not be a costumer(which, by the way, they didn’t even know the word costumer), but I know that Costume designers are on the set. They have to work with the actors for sizing etc etc.
Don’t follow them because you think it’ll get you a comic-con badge. they will not be able to.
They’re not affiliated with the show. They can’t give you “tickets to their booth”. that’s not how badges function. PLEASE don’t fall for this.
Sometimes in daily life I like to pretend I’m a time traveler from late medieval Europe and I’m just fucking amazed at my luxurious life
Let me tell you, 14th c me is REALLY impressed with modern me’s easy access to pepper and cinnamon
"you have multiple purple garments? you must be a person of some note"
"these chairs are fantastically luxurious"
"I’ve never seen so much salt in one place"
I am going to start playing this game.
this is your captain speaking, AND THIS IS YOUR CAPTAIN SHOUTING.#excited Russian applause and giggles
in 6 years its going to be the 20s again so we can bring back swing music and the aesthetics of that era but keep modern values who’s with me
As long as we don’t repeat the Hitler gaining control and shit part cuz I heard that was pretty lame.
but the titantic sank in 1912 and the costa concordia sank in 2012 and history is totally repeating itself
World War 1 began in july 1914…
i guess the real question is how can you not like tesla
he thought women would eventually rule the world because we’re the dominant sex
he liked pigeons
he was a vegetarian
he was a babe
he was shy
he hated edison
Yup, as long as you’re ok with that time he went bonkers and tried to build a death ray.
Are you serious the death ray was the best part
every time spock calls kirk ‘jim’ a part of my soul flies into the sun
Dear Gene Roddenberry,
My name is Donnaray Crouch and I’m 14 years old. I’m writing to you about an idea I’ve come up with for a new Star Trek series. This is the idea:
This show would be similar to the previous series, but taking Mr. Spock’s place would be a young girl Vulcan (myself) who would be Mr. Spock’s younger sister…she would be a genius and child prodigy, even for a Vulcan. The young girl would be unemotional like Mr. Spock, but instead of black hair she would have light brown hair. This young girl would be the only child on ship except maybe for some episodes with other kids as guest stars.
…Enclosed is a drawing of me and how I’d look as Mr. Spock’s sister.
- quoted in Letters to Star Trek by Susan Sackett, 1977.
This totally sounds like the type of letter I would’ve written if I were around the same age around the same time. I love that right from the get-go, girls and women fans were giving ideas for ways to work more women and more creative representations of women into Trek.(via spockshair)
If you’re not upset about Katniss, Tonto, or Khan being played by white people, but you are upset about Annie being played by a black girl, you’re probably racist.
And by probably I mean definitely.
and that’s how the crew finds out about them sleeping together.
#bones is secretly happy for them but he’s not very happy with the way he found out#he threatens jim in the guise to update jim’s hypos#he recites various alien std’s and their horrible effects#and he threatens spock with various alien diseases in case spock tries to break jim’s heart#actually he cares#actually the crew doesn’t care#they’re pretty chill about it#sulu secretly passes credit chip to chekov#scotty breaks his celebratory liquor stash that jim pretends does not exist anywhere near the warp core#and he brings uhura along#chapel furiously types fanfic about these two#while weeping and emptying bones’ romulan ale#she brings rand along (via purplefloweronmydesk)
I’m going to show this to my parents because they say its not normal for a 15 year old girl to be sleeping with a teddy bear
10 ponies and 10+ misc uwu
I’m 22 and I sleep with a large, spherical platypus. You’re doing just fine.
