The first annual Geek Girl Con was held on October 8th and 9th in Seattle, WA. This was the first con I’d been to in years and I met some great people (check out these awesome Dragon Age cosplayers) and snagged a couple of autographs. For purposes of this piece I’m focusing on two panels I sat in on: the Designing Women of Bioware and “No, I am not a Booth Babe:” Sexism in the Video Game Industry (Weds!).
A few weeks ago we talked to Ashley Eckstein who plays the awesome Ahsoka Tanno on Star Wars: The Clone Wars. By the end of the interview we were incredibly excited for Disney’s all new Star Tours. While details Star Tours are still scant, here is what we do know. The new ride will be using James Cameron’s 3D technology (yes still with glasses), you will tour at least three different Star Wars locations: Bespin, Alderon, and Endor. Promotional art shows other well known locations such as Hoth and Coruscant.
If you live in Florida there are also some promotional events coming very soon to get you ready for hyperspace travel.
