It's that magical time of the year ... Comic Con! Nerds unite together in one place to get autographs, ogle booth babes and generally stink up the place. But it's not all fun and games -- it's a weekend of endless lines and waiting. To make sure you have the best time possible, follow our handy Comic Con Survival Guide.
Avoid eye contact with incredibly attractive cosplayers -- they are people, not objects. And they have plastic weapons.
Fill a water gun with Febreeze. Use at your own discretion.
Pad your body with foam so you can freely barge through a crowd of Harry Potter fans.
Cosplay as an astronaut to shield yourself from both sun and stench.
Bring a latex mask of J.J. Abrams’ face so you can go wherever you want.
