Comikaze Expo 2011: Geek Girls Creating Their Own Films & Shows

Geek Girls Creating Their Own Films & Shows was the last panel I attended at Comikaze Expo and it was a great way to wrap up the convention experience. I love that that the convention had panels that centered around the ladies in our vast community.

Lady Geeks at Comikaze Expo 2011

Comikaze Expo came and went–it was a whirlwind of a weekend for our lady geeks. It was the first time that all of the Los Angeles based Defective Geeks went together as a team to rigorously cover an event. For two days, the Space Pirate Queen, Gizzy B, Fortune Cookie and Sailor Mizz ran about the convention floor to try and see as much as we can.

Comikaze was a definite success with 40,000 attendees, big guest stars and a constantly crowded exhibit hall. We did a million interviews and took a million photos. We will slowly but surely post video interviews as we get them together so stand by for some awesome content! A special shout out and thank you to the boys– Nick, Joaquin and Steve– from Red Sheep Productions for volunteering as our film crew for the entire weekend.
