SDCC 2019: Scholastic Comics & Cocktails With 2020 First Look

At the Comics & Cocktails mixer hosted by Scholastic, we got to preview their upcoming 2020 graphic novels under Graphix. The party was held at the Hilton Bayfront and attendees were given a peek at original artwork while being served food and drinks. Can’t go wrong with tacos and comics!

Illustrators were at the party to sign prints and copies of their books, including Katy Farina (Baby-Sitters Little Sister: Karen Witch), Paulina Ganucheau (She-Ra and the Princesses of Power: Legend of the Fire Princess), Andy Runton (Owly: The Way Home), Maria Scrivan (Nat Enough), Shannon Wright (Twins), and Jimmy Gownley (Seven Good Reasons Not To Grow Up).

“Will Travel to Fangirl”

In 2015, this has become my new mantra. When I found out that Stephen Amell, who plays Oliver Queen in Arrow, has a winery AND throws wine parties… I was more than a little excited. In a spur of the moment between flurries of text messages, Gizzy B and I decided that we were going to attend the Nocking Point wine mixer in Portland. It was a good excuse to travel, right? I’ve never been to Portland!

Costume Designers Guild at SDCC 2014

Yes folks, the San Diego Comic Con posts are still forthcoming!

We just HAD to write about one of the best afternoon events we were privileged to attend at SDCC: The CDG (Costume Designers Guild) Mixer! On Friday, July 25th, the CDG local 892 rolled out the red carpet to their members and panelists to celebrate all things costuming at the Marriot Marquis.  The Costume Designers Guild (I.A.T.S.E. Local 892) is the labor union representing costume designers, assistant costume designers and illustrators in film and television.

For those not in the know, this year marked the CDG’s ninth consecutive year participating at SDCC, by offering a slew of panels on costuming and the industry, as well as sponsoring their very own Masquerade prizes and trophy!. This year’s winners were “Giant Monsters All Out Attack,” by Lisa Truong, Lynleigh Sato, Wendy Colon, and Cindy Purchase.

The CDG mixer venue was gorgeous, with our own view of the bay and plenty of food to nosh on!

Another wonderful part of this mixer was the copious amounts of costumes on display on models from various movies! We tried very hard not to feel every costume and freak out their wearers, haha. Alright, enough chit chat. On to the photos!

SDCC 2013: The Mixer

SDCC 2013: Mixer

This year, Geek Girl Project and Defective Geeks hosted a mixer party on Thursday night at San Diego Comic-con 2013. We hung out at the Pool Club bar in the Hilton Bayfront hotel which was an adorable and intimate venue. It was a great kick-off to the rest of the convention weekend. We saw our friends and made new ones . . . and met friends from the interwebs!

We hope everyone had fun and thank you so much for attending.

Shout out to Crazy4ComicCon for helping us spread the word about the party! Check out our photos below the jump.

FilmBreak|MsInTheBiz|Mixer 2013

We Lady Geeks tend to get around in Los Angeles and this past Wednesday, SailorMizz and I were able to attend a mixer hosted by FilmBreak.com at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. Actress and producer, Helenna Santos-Levy, have teamed up with FilmBreak to celebrate her latest project, Ms. in The Biz.

Ms. in The Biz is a magazine-style blog that will be written by over 70 female contributors who work in the Hollywood industry. Each writer will offer a different perspective about their lives, aspirations and projects in the entertainment industry. Helenna’s goal is to promote a positive and supportive community for women.

Our interview with the ladies pictured above, Brea Grant (Heroes), Leah Cevoli (Deadwood, Robot Chicken), Helenna (the lovely founder!) and Taryn O’Neill (Granite Flats) will be up soon. For now, enjoy our photos from the event after the jump.
