My latest adventure took me from California to St. Augustine, Florida for EXP Con to see Commander Shepard; both versions of Commander Shepard, in fact. Jennifer Hale and Mark Meer were in attendance, meeting for the first time. Ali Hillis had been…
Our panelists, all members of Crabcat Industries, were Jessica Merizan, Hilary Shapiro, and Elizabeth Heckmaier. The discussion started at a different place than I expected: fandom.
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.

The winner of Bioware’s fan art contest dazzles us with some official fem-Shep art.
Last evening I made my way into the Unicorn theatre here at PAX (complete with Robot Unicorn attack music on.. loop) to relax a bit and check out Crabcat Industries costume non-contest.
