As always, the three-day, star-studded, nerd-tastic event known as San Diego Comic-Con is here. And as always, everyone who couldn’t make it this year is suffering from a serious feeling of missing out (FOMO, as the kids say).

Between the panels, the autograph signings and the next-level character costuming, everyone wants in on the SDCC action. Including The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences.

The Academy tweeted out a new hashtag on Friday, encouraging con-goers to submit a movie still that best described their convention experience.

Several resulting tweets humorously captured the joy of dressing up as a favorite comic or movie character, as well as the feeling of having to lug all your gear and shopping spoils through the convention center all day.
