Record breaking heat is expected during the convention

If you plan on wearing a hot costume to AX, please take extra precautions against the heat. Perhaps we should move all the cosplay gatherings indoors as a result of this.

Oh man.. a 100? I don't want people to faint - myself included.

I feel bad for every one wearing the mascot-like costumes. It's hard enough even on cool days.

I am just not seeing it, most of the weather sites that I use are showing normal summer temperatures over the fourth of july weekend.

Of course it is still a ways out there and this phenomenon could very well have an effect, we will probably know more in the coming week.

For tips on hydration:
Remember that becoming and staying hydrated is something you should prepare for the night before. Drink plenty of water (the night before as well as the morning of), and avoid alcohol use or other drugs. Do not drink carbonated soda, and if you expect to sweat a lot, bring some Gatorade or other water with added electrolytes to avoid getting muscle cramps due to loss of electrolytes. If you start to feel faint, exhausted, or dehydrated, get indoors in an air-conditioned room ASAP and take a break. Look out for each other and keep an eye on the others in your group in case anyone needs help.

I really don't see there being enough room inside to host the amount of gatherings that there are. As much as that would be a great idea.

But really, the key is to drink lots of water and everything else that Access said.

Another suggestion is to find shade when you are in break or a decent area of where it is not totally hot. I know for sure that Site 1 has trees and places of seating.

Actually it won't be a 100 in the overall sense it's just the downtown area is a heat trap which makes it hotter for people in that area.

I don't think it'll reach 100 in Downtown LA during the 4th of July weekend. If anything, keep track of this page and check again when this weekend hits. You also then have to consider humidity too even if it's not 100.

Yeah, I just checked that page. The 100 degree temperatures are expected in the coastal valley and desert sections. Neither is considered part of Downtown.

All in all, should be a nice weekend for a convention unless things dramatically shift.

Damn really? I'll have to make sure to be careful on days 2 and 3 since I'll be wearing a long sleeve shirt and jacket for my cosplay. X_X

It will be warm for sure, but I doubt it will be that hot
