Now, if you MUST try to get into one of the exclusive parties, eHow says this is how to do it:
Getting invited to exclusive afterparties often involves a mixture of luck and charm. At Comic-Con, the person you’re talking to at the bar may be the editor for a popular series of comics or a movie producer, so stay friendly to everybody if you’re looking for afterparty invites.
Hear that? A comics editor can get you into the good parties! Everyone be EXTRA EXTRA nice to Steve Wacker and all your dreams of meeting Daenerys Targaryen may just come true!
