SDCC The Pop Insider

We’re comin’ for ya, San Diego. Comic-Con International: San Diego is the biggest fan event out there, and we are ready to paaaaartay! Join us for cocktails (cash bar), activities, appearances, giveaways, and more at the Legion M Fan Lounge hosted by the Pop Insider at Gaslamp Quarter’s Theatre Box and its brand-new Chocolate Lounge and Rooftop Bar and Lounge at 701 Fifth Ave. (Fifth Ave. and G St.).

We’re hosting a series of afternoon events on Thursday and Friday, July 18-19 (12:00-5 p.m. PDT), and Saturday and Sunday, July 20-21 (10 a.m.-5 p.m. PDT), including cosplay dance parties, a karaoke showdown, and a Potterhead party for all the Harry Potter fanatics out there. 

Cosplayers looking for a quick spruce-up can stop by the Cosplayer Repair and Makeup Touch Up Station sponsored by Spirit Halloween, get professional photos taken to commemorate the occasion, and possibly even star in an upcoming Cosplayers Getting Coffee YouTube episode. Phone running low from all of this premium content? Charge it up at our Angry Birds phone charging stations; and stay up to date with all things pop culture by picking up our Con-exclusive, limited print edition of the Pop Insider magazine. 

On Sunday, July 21, we’re closing out SDCC with a Potterhead Party from 3-6 p.m. on the roof at Theatre Box’s Rooftop Bar and Lounge with giveaways, potion drinks, and a cosplay meetup, featuring star of Fantastic Beasts Dan Fogler.
