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!).
Although it’s not until next year, you can buy tickets now. It will be hard to top last year’s festivities including an appearance by George Lucas, interviewed by Jon Stewart, as well as some great Robot Chicken panels, Star Wars speed dating (really), and appearances by Carrie Fischer and Mark Hamill.
CV was all about all about the anniversary of Empire with Boba Fett dominating much of the convention exclusives. Although the 30th anniversary of ROTJ wouldn’t be until 2013, I’m personally hoping that some of the ::ahem:: characters of ROTJ will be more prominently featured at Celebration VI.
Nerd Appropriate will see you in 2012.
