Back from GeekGirlCon - Let's See Some Cosplay!

Robin, Batman, and The Riddler
GeekGirlCon was fantastic and I am exhausted, neither of which is particularly surprising, I think. I went to panels, bought awesome nerd merch, hung out with fabulous geeks, and even got to interview Kelly Sue DeConnick and Jane Espenson! Those interviews were actually filmed (courtesy of Heart Gamingg) and should be up by Thursday. Which is just plain super cool.

In addition to all of the panels and networking, though, I also got to check out some of the more interesting indie works available right now, and I shall be reporting on those as I manage to work through investigating the massive stack of business cards currently threatening to topple my desk. But expect more on that front. Also a little bit more on some cool volunteer opportunities, like with Reel Grrls here in Seattle, and other cool stuff like that.

But I know what you're really here for. You want some cosplay. Well, have at it! (All photos are by the consent of the party being photographed, because we're classy like that.)

Captain America

Batgirl (Barbara Gordon)

Bilbo and Dwalin

Drs. Hermann Gottlieb and Newton Geizsler

No Face

Rosie the Riveter!

Actually, I'll be totally honest, I forget what she was dressed as. I'll take a hint for 400, Alex?

The Fifth Doctor, times two


Darth Vader. I think.

Rose, Tenth Doctor, Eleventh Doctor, and River Song

Something from Team Fortress 2, I believe.

Riza Hawkeye


Ice Queen, Peppermint Butler, and Fionna and Cake

Katara and Azula (and also their very nice friend)

Daenerys Targaryen

Sabertooth, Cyclops, Rogue, Gambit, Jean Grey and Wolverine

Captain Marvel

Spiderwoman and Hawkeye II

Loki and Gambit

Suki/Kyoshi Warrior

Chell and Harley Quinn (I think. Maybe?)

So, yeah, kind of a lot of talented people at this con. And we have more to come in reporting on it, because interesting things were said and heard, very cool people continue to exist and need to be mentioned, and those fabled interviews will be available soon, oh so very soon.
