Comic Book Jobs: Comic Con International Edition
In the world of comic books, there are writers, artists, colorists, letterers and editors. But don’t be discouraged if you lack those skills - there’s always work for anyone with a good personality and a hard body hard enough to fit into a tight-fitting costume, especially during convention season.
Comic Con International in San Diego is the biggest U.S. convention and this year it’s being held from July 11-15th. Already the ads are popping up on Craigslist for models, cosplayers, costume performers, booth babes and my favorite: “Brand Ambassador.”
Let’s check out some of them:
Reality star and KISS frontman Gene Simmons wants male and female cosplayers for the con to appear as Dominatrix and Zipper.
GMR Marketing is having a gaming promotion at the con and they need 2 brand ambassadors with gaming experience.
Here’s a company looking for models for the con: $70/hour.
Here’s another company looking for Female Promo Models: $1575/week.
Yet another company wants an actress who already has a convention badge, and is willing to wear a gas mask and “a pregnant suit.” I'm sure that's a fetish for someone.
Brand Ambassadors and Street Team members are wanted.
Experienced Costume Characters and Handlers: $16-$30/hour.
A gaming company wants female models.
More female models are needed: $30-$45/hour.
An “experiential guerilla marketing company” is looking for two “Brand Representatives/Laborers” who can help with booth set up for a “high-profile client.”
But it’s not all just models! There’s a need for security guards as well.
Good luck, job seekers!
