Geek Girl Con Cometh

Free your inner Geek Girl. Come to GeekGirlCon in Seattle this October 8 & 9, 2011 at the Seattle Center Northwest Rooms and EMP Museum to laugh, learn, and connect.
All geeks welcome.

Let's face it, boys and grrls, it has never been cooler to be a geek. Comic books have taken over the silver screen. Lord of the Rings happened. And the gaming has never been better. Geek has never been more chic.

Special guests include Bonnie Burton, Marian Call, Jane Espenson, Carrie and Katie Goldman, Nancy and Belle Holder, Chase Masterson, Trina Robbins, Greg Rucka, Gail Simone, and Jen Van Meter.

There are tons of workshops, panels, cosplay, demonstrations, special events, Q and A sessions, vendors, and even a Whedon~esque Burlesque Event.

And if that's not enough? There's a little something for you horror fans as well.
