Introduction: How to Sneak Into Large Events

This instructable will show you many ideas on how to sneak into large events. Large enough to have crowds of people. Please join me with real life ideas that have worked.

Disclaimer: I do NOT condone cheating/sneaking your way into a paid event and will not be held accountable if you get caught attempting to do so.

Step 1: Identity...

The very first step, depending on the event, will be to secure an identity. If this is a business event/meeting of a competitor, this is your best option. This step is also very handy for conventions (AX, ComicCon, etc...).

Find a trash can/recycling can near the exit. When leaving events such as these, people are very likely to throw out their ID badges as soon as they are done with the event. Wait for the crowds to thin a bit and do some dumpster diving.

The badge will be found most likely in two forms: pin or around the neck. Figure out which it is by looking at visitors.

You may also want to keep in mind that there may be (for the conventions) a freebies bag. People are likely to put their badge inside the bag before throwing it out, keep this in mind and search the bags you find in the trash.

Once you have secured a badge, you may be worried that the person's name may be well known. To remedy this, slightly obscure it with clothing and walk inside.

Step 2: Clothing...

Make especially sure that you have the appropriate dress for the occasion. If it is a business convention, wear business clothing. If it is an anime expo, jeans and a t-shirt, but don't over-do it with elaborate costuming. Try and find what the majority of the crowd is wearing.

In a non-business convention, the most likely thing to be worn in blue-jeans. Guaranteed. Keep that in mind.

If it is a one day event you will want to bring a few changes of clothes with you in your car.

These clothes should include:
+Casual button up shirt with khakis.
+Business suit (women may want to bring a skirt just in case)
+Shorts that come down to the knee
+A simple one color t-shirt

Now you can go observe what the attendees are wearing and change accordingly.
The key is to BLEND in with the crowd.

Step 3: No Badge?

If you could not find an ID badge through your dumpster diving, this is the step for you...

Find all the exits and identify which is the most crowed. Also wait until mid-day at least, this is when more people will be leaving.

Only when you find the MOST crowded exit and time can you attempt this.

Move directly toward the exit and crowds. When you start rubbing elbows with people, stop moving.

Turn around and face the same direction as the crowd, but DON'T leave! Instead move backward toward the exit slowly, allowing others to pass you by.

Security will be looking for people coming in directly, but if you move in like shown above, they will think you are just walking slowly. It's like an optical illusion!

Step 4: Final Notes...

If you are not in at this point, the only ways I know of are highly dangerous or disturbed. So good luck using those tips and have fun!
