SDCC: Where I'll Be

I would love to say hi to everyone at Comic-Con, so if you happen to see me among the masses, don't hesitate to stop me.  I thought about posting my whole intended schedule here, but I change my mind too much.  Especially after I've been around SDCC crowds for more than a day. 

Here are places where I will definitely be though.  Undomesticated equines could not keep me away:

Thursday, July 22
Geek Girls Exist— Really? Kristin Rielly (Geek Girls Network) leads a discussion about growing up geek, turning passions into careers, and who shot first. Representing the many awesome aspects of the geek culture, panelists Morgan Romine (The Frag Dolls), Bonnie Burton (The Star Wars Craft Book), Marian Call (singer/songwriter), Sarah Kuhn (One Con Glory), Jill Pantozzi (Has Boobs Reads Comics blog), Veronica Belmont (Qore), Kari Byron (MythBusters), and Kiala Kazebee (GeekWeek.com) school you on what it means to be a real geeky girl and even make you LOL IRL.

The Guild— Now in its fourth season, The Guild is a multi-award-winning independent web series that started on YouTube and has grown into a worldwide phenomenon with over 50 million views, a groundbreaking distribution deal with Microsoft, a chart-topping song and music video, and a comic book from Dark Horse Comics. Writer/producer and Comic-Con special guest Felicia Day, producer Kim Evey, director Sean Becker, and the cast of The Guild including Wil Wheaton are on hand for a discussion and Q&A, along with the debut of never-before-seen content and other surprises.

Her Universe: Shining The Spotlight on Female Fans— Ashley Eckstein (Star Wars: The Clone Wars) brings together some of today's leading women who are movers and shakers in the various fields of sci-fi and fantasy. Looking at science fiction through female eyes, the panel will discuss what kinds of entertainment female sci-fi fans want to see more of, what strides have been made, what has been missing up to now, what kinds of merchandise female fans want to see, and what female fans can do to encourage more of all of this. Panelists include Jane Espenson (producer/writer, Battlestar Galactica, Caprica, Buffy The Vampire Slayer), Melinda Snodgrass (author, The Edge series; story editor Star Trek: The Next Generation), Erika Kennair (director of development and current programming, Syfy Channel), Cat Staggs (artist, Star Wars sketch cards, Marvel card sets), Bonnie Burton (content developer, Lucas Online, official SW Blog), Katie Cook (artist, Star Wars, comics, webcomic Gronk), and Mary Franklin (senior events lead, Lucasfilm Ltd.). Q&A with audience members, too! Room 24ABC

Also, I've changed by costumes plans a bit.  Since I'm driving down Thursday and leaving relatively early on Sunday, I decided to cut my four costumes down to two:
Friday - Padme black corset dress
Saturday - Han Solo

See you there!


  1. I will see you on Thursday at Geek Girls Exist! I won't be in costume-just my Ahsoka Tee! Me and my boys will be wandering around the joint on Friday wearing our matching "Fan" t's!

  2. I can't wait! Hope to see you at the tweet-up!

  3. Trish - Yay! I think I might wear my Ahsoka tee that day too. :D I haven't decided yet. I look forward to meeting you!

    xocc - You bet, I think that even if a hundred or so folks are there, it will hopefully be spread out enough to find people.
