Earlier today I posted about the promo card left developed to promote the Austin based Capital Comic Con. Here’s another look at the card.
I reached out to the contact on their web site, Aaron Luevano who told me by email that he was aware of the card and approved it telling me”I asked…
Continuing this week’s trend of unfortunate convention PR replies…
And this is why I’ll never attend a Fan Expo.
—A small portion of a piece I wrote. The convention is going on right now, still so disappointed in their responses. Safety first.
Just wanted to take a moment to post our policy on harassment on tumblr, it is also on our website, and will be in the program guide. The image attached is the sign we will have displayed throughout the convention.
Emerald City Comicon’s mission is to create a safe, awesome environment where geeks of all kinds can come together. We have a zero tolerance policy for harassment of any kind.
Harassment includes offensive verbal comments (related to race, gender, sexual orientation, body size, disability, appearance, and religion), overly sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact and unwelcome sexual attention.
Exhibitors, sponsors and guests are subject to our anti-harassment policy as well and have also been informed. In particular, exhibitors should not use images or material that surpasses a PG-13 rating at their booths. Booth staff (including volunteers) should not use over-sexualized clothing/uniforms/costumes.
If a person engages in harassing behavior, ECCC Directors and Department Heads may take any action they deem appropriate, up to and including expulsion from Emerald City Comicon (with no refund). If you are being harassed, witness someone else being harassed or have any other concerns, please contact a member of the Emerald City Comicon staff immediately (identifiable by green Minion t-shirts or black polos/Staff badges). We are happy to contact our security or local law enforcement, provide escort, a safe place, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the convention.
All attendees, exhibitors and staff are subject to this anti-harassment policy and are expected to follow these rules at all Emerald City Comicon events.
Emerald City is one of my very favorite shows in the world, and this is the iceberg-tip of why.
Obligatory panel plug: On Saturday, at 12:40, in Hall D, Laura Hudson, Janelle Asselin, Bobby Roberts, and I will be talking about harassment in geek communities.
Thank you, Emerald City Comic Con for being a positive example for other fan conventions when it comes to harassment issues.
Sing it, sister.
Realized I never really posted the whole set of photos from when I met Merida at Walt Disney World.
This involved me being SUPER excited while waiting on line, then SUPER nervous because I’d never spoken to a Disney cast member as an adult. But this lady was awesome and appropriately excited about us having the same hair. Then I showed her a picture of my Merida cosplay on my phone and she twirled for me. :)
IT BOINGED ONTO ITS OWN HEAD
This bunny should go out for the summer Olympics.

I’m not sure I can accurately explain to kateordie how Catbutt killed me.
Had to be done.
That was fast, Alex. But I agree.
Guild Jewelry has a new shop with some really cool DC Comics licensed jewelry. And they’re offering free shipping! See all the pieces here.
(I own the Batman ring. It makes me feel like I’m married to Bruce.)
it describes me perfectly.
Speaking at TCA, this is what Fox’s Kevin Reilly had to say when asked about casting Anna Gunn in their upcoming Broadchurch remake, Gracepoint.
Why did you cast Anna Gunn, instead of also going with the original British actress?
REILLY: You need a salt-of-the-earth quality in that role, and I think Anna really does have that. She’s a tall, elegant woman. That was her character, to a certain extent, on Breaking Bad. She is quite striking, but I think in a really approachable way, she’ll be costumed accordingly.
I recently received this. I think it explains my answer.
In other news, here’s an awesome picture LJinto took of me as Batgirl at C2E2 2013.
