Where You Can Find Me at New York Comic Con 2015


Headed to New York Comic Con this weekend? What a coincidence, so am I! Check out where and how you can find me.

True, NYCC started today. If you were there (or following me on Twitter) you might have seen I was in attendance in some very intense cosplay. I debuted my Medieval Batgirl costume and got lots of double-takes!

Why yes, that is a horse.

Moving on. Tomorrow you can find me on my first panel! Info below:

The New Geeky Journalism
Friday October 9| 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM | Room 1A01

Seemingly overnight, being a geeky journalist has morphed from a rare curiosity to an essential role in the pop-culture landscape. Join Writers Jill Pantozzi (The Nerdy Bird), Abraham Riesman (Vulture), Anthony Breznican (Entertainment Weekly), Emily Asher-Perrin (Tor.com) and Genevieve Valentine (The A.V. Club, io9, Et. al) to discuss this phenomenon and how it has changed fandom. Moderated by science fiction critic and Author of the book Luke Skywalker Can’t Read; Ryan Britt

And on Sunday, I’ll be on another panel!

A (Wo)man’s World: Closing The Gender Gap In Pop Culture
Sunday October 11| 1:30 PM – 2:30 PM | Room 1B03

On screen, in toystore aisles and comicbook pages, women are often objectified and stereotyped. Perhaps unsurprisingly, men still control pop culture, representing 93% of directors & 87% of writers. But audiences today want something different…where is the change? In this Panel hear from UN Women’s HeForShe campaign and leaders from the film & toy industries who will explore the good, the bad and the ugly: where are we today and what can we all do to shift a “man’s world” into an equal one?

One important note: I will not be at the convention on Saturday at all. The crowds are going to be absolutely out of control that day so I’m not even going to attempt it. Plus, conventions are exhausting!

As always, if you happen to see me roaming the show floor Friday or Sunday please don’t hesitate to say hello! And if you want to shout out “The Nerdy Bird” to get my attention in the crowd, that’s totally fine by me. :)

    Wish I could have gone! Maybe next year? Tickets always sell out before I find them. Anyone know a better way than praying for tickets?

    OK, that costume is epic. I love how you turned the handlebars of your scooter into a horse!

    I actually used a mobility scooter for the first time yesterday. Ordinarily I rent a power chair to get around my local Renaissance faire, but they were all out so I decided to try a scooter rather than deal with the hills, gravel, and roots in my ultralight manual. Turns out three wheels and no lap belt are not a good combination for dealing with rough terrain. It didn’t help that I’m so short the basket and handlebars blocked the
    view directly in front of me, meaning I couldn’t see a hole or big rock
    until I ran into it! It was kind of disappointing that I was wearing a hobbit costume (hey, it’s not like anyone else can get away with wearing

    • Thank you! I’d always wanted to do something with the scooter but knew I needed to do it for a local show because traveling with extra stuff like that would be too difficult. Difficult enough getting the horse into the car and navigating the crowds!
