Day 2 of San Diego Comic-Con was spent mostly wandering around the off-site events, including all the activations at the PETCO parking lot. I got to visit the Ice Cream Citadel where the Lich King (from Blizzard’s Hearthstone) presided over his shop as people lined up for free ice cream. Surprisingly, the Deadquarters—The Walking Dead experience— didn’t have a long line and I decided to check it out. It was a nice outdoor lounge, too much sun for me personally, but there was free Mountain Dew and a cool bunker experience!
Listen to the episode Gizzy B and Space Pirate Queen record in the midst of Stan Lee’s Comikaze Expo — from exhausted rambling abouts, to meeting RuPaul, creeping on cosplayers and having a fit over a baby dressed like an Ewok.
Join us as we celebrate our third anniversary with Stan Lee’s Comikaze Expo’s CEO, Regina Carpinelli! This show was recorded with a lot of love and more red wine as we discuss the upcoming Comikaze Expo in November and Regina’s SyFy show, Fangasm. This episode is an explosion of geek talk from Sharknado to comic books to Sailormoon.
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.
