We were super excited to be a part of the action at Stan Lee’s Comikaze Expo this past weekend with our friends at the Comic Bug!

The Comic Bug brought their community of talented creators to Comikaze with a “pavilion” which consisted of  long rows of tables at the artist alley featuring comic artists, writers and even the new geek dating app, Cuddli. We got to sit and hang out next to artists like Dave CroslandJim Mahfood, Richard Starkings, Rafael Navarro and many, many more.

To add to the fun, we created cards that let fans express what their feelings about geeks or fangirls are. We hoped to spark conversation and pride in being a geek girl, and people did not disappoint! Take a look at some of the empowering answers, artwork, and awesome cosplay we saw from the Comikaze con-goers.

We talked to a lot of young women, and even kids, who are now growing up with confidence to be who they want to be. Finding your tribe is important after all and local events like Comikaze had made it so much easier.

It was really cool to receive support not just from women but also from men who were excited to see more women showing their geek pride at the convention. We were reminded at how accepting and cool the comic book community can be.

Those red cups do not contain suspicious liquids. Not at all.

We gave out bookmarks, buttons, custom bracelets and TONS of candy. It was Halloween, after all! The best part was seeing all the adorable family cosplay during Halloween.
