SDCC 2013: All Shapes and Sizes

SCC 2013: All Shapes and Sizes

I was so happy when I found out the All Shapes and Sizes panel was coming to Comic Con. The first time the panel was conducted was at Wondercon and it was such an amazing experience. Leah Cevoli pulled a Nick Fury and assembled a wonderful group of women to discuss the issues of body image in the media and how it affects women in every day life. It was incredible to see this issue discussed in a public forum and I could not have been happier that the discussion was heading to Comic Con.

One of the great things about this panel is the variety of panelists. Just like the title of the discussion, the women on the panel are of all shapes and sizes and cover multiple facets of this issue because of their different roles in the entertainment industry and the geek community.

‘All Shapes and Sizes’ Panel at WonderCon

The way women view their bodies and the way society dictates women view themselves is, in my opinion, a topic that is not discussed enough. That’s one of the many reasons why I so looked forward to this panel at WonderCon, created and moderated by Leah Cevoli. We were lucky enough to discuss the topic with Leah before WonderCon, and the panel gave us insight to other women’s struggles and opinions on the topic.

Ep. 108 Too Much Social Time

The Space Pirate Queen and Gizzy B talk Fortune Cookie’s ears off about Wondercon 2013 from the cosplay, the people and the terrible parking situation. They talk about the panels they went to like Leah Cevoli’s All Shapes and Sizes, what the convention was like in comparison to SDCC and why they are so exhausted anyways!

This weekend at Wondercon, actress and all around lady-of-all-trades, Leah Cevoli is moderating a panel called All Shapes and Sizes Welcome, discussing the female body image and women’s issues in the industry. The Lady Geeks also open up about their own personal experiences from struggling with weight gain to skinny-shaming to finding self-love. We also get into discussions about cats (again), our dream bubble-baths, Jesus and talking cheeseburgers. If you’ll be at Wondercon, we hope to see you at Leah’s panel on Saturday!
