Fangirl Project: Janelle and Liz

Two more days before our departure, and I'm printing out model releases, charging all my batteries and double-checking that everything works, woohoo!

This is going to be my first time at DragonCon (yes, I'm cherry) and I wonder, do they sell any decent costumes there? I feel like I need to do my part but I don't have the time to make anything.

This one Halloween, I tied a paper plate to my head and attached a stuffed lobster on it. I was a 'table'. I don't think that's going to fly as a costume at DragonCon.

It would be kinda fun to go as Jammer from Battlestar Galactica, haha, especially since he once played Kristin Kreuk's love interest in the campy teen Canadian soap, Edgemont -- yep, I'm a tv nerd. (The kind of tv nerd that noticed that half the cast of Edgemont shows up on BSG in one episode or another. Vancouver coinky-dink, eh?)

Heck, I'll take a Gryffindor scarf at this point. Or even Spongebob's actual square pants. Or even two cinnamon rolls to make Princess Leia hair buns! Anything! I know, somewhere, out there... there's a Hamtaro furry mascot suit with my name on it. :P

Anyhow, in honor of Wednesdays being "New Comic Book Day", we've got not one but two rad comic book fans for the picture countown: Here's a picture of fangirls Janelle and Liz lugging huge stacks of comics upstairs to enjoy for the night! Sounds like a good time to me. =)

Vote Petrelli for Congress!

I had planned to post a different picture today for the week's countdown, but then this earthly shadow draped the California skies and I felt a sudden current of electricity course through my body and escape from my fingertips as two massive thunderbolts! And so I turned to nautibitz for help only to realize that she was made of liquid and was hovering above me like a transparent Silver Surfer!

It was then that I realized TODAY is the lunar eclipse! And it is also the release date for Heroes Season One DVD set which has the 73-minute never-before-seen premiere episode!

*cue very dramatic music*

And so, with the help of Micah and Mr. Linderman re-arranging the image files on my computer, it is my honor to present a Heroes fangirl from "the list", Petrelli Campaigner fangirljen!

Here she is, a true hero to the Petrellis, wearing her campaign outfit and a Merry Marvel Marching Society badge:

Fangirl Project: Jules Is A Cylon!

The countdown to DragonCon continues, and as promised, here's the next picture!

This is Jules at Secret Headquarters in Los Angeles. (Thanks to Secret Headquarters for letting us shoot there!)

Yep, she made the nifty shirt herself! Click the above image to take you to the full-size picture with all the details. Feedback on the pics I'm uploading this week is much appreciated. ^_^

Anyhow, I've been working all day on redesigning the Fangirl Project website. I hope (cross my fingers) that I finish before we leave for Atlanta. Wish me luck!

Portland?

Hey Guys,

I hear your coming to the Portland area in Sept/Oct range.  I"m in Eugene which is only a bit away.  If you are still interested in interviews etc. for the doc and book I'd love to participate. :)

Fangirl Project: Alice aka Beerbad

nautibitz and I are leaving for DragonCon on Friday, and in honor of those that have already participated in the documentary, we are going to be counting down by posting one Fangirl portrait every single day until we leave!

First up is the very kick-ass Alice aka beerbad, Battlestar Galactica and Firefly fangirl in her awesome dorm room sporting BSG fatigues and dog tags!

If any of you guys are going to be in Atlanta for DragonCon next weekend, please let us know! We don't have a booth for that con, we're just going to be wandering around, so it's best to schedule something with us if you would like to participate. And hey, maybe we'll have a party in our hotel room again, w00t!



ETA: Here's a link to beerbad's post about her picture and how she sold her body to me and nautibitz ROFL. ^_^

Comic Con International

San Diego, California
July 26-July 29, 2007


DragonCon

I think we may have a table at DEXCON, but for the others, we'll just be sort of wandering around. Maybe we'll get some silly t-shirts or aprons or something. =)



* My cousin, lil_fatty is still trying to get us a hotel room at the Marriott for the Comic Con in San Diego, but so far it looks like nearly every single hotel in that area appears to be booked solid for the entire convention. We're still looking into different options and hoping for a miracle, but if we can't find a place to crash, we may have to cancel.

At last, the SCI FI Summit Pix!

Hey guys,

Sorry this is kinda late -- I'm generally behind on replying to comments here on the Fangirl Project community, but I finally have the pictures uploaded and I just posted my (kinda rushed and sloppy) con report. I hope you guys enjoy the pix!

Thanks so much to everyone that hung out and talked to us at the con! It was very cool meeting everyone, and very inspiring to connect with our fellow fangirls. nautibitz and I are truly grateful for everyone's support and interest in the project.

Anyway, I'll try to get to all the previous comments and stuff this weekend. But now we're off to meet with beerbad to photograph her for the Fangirl book! Wish us luck :)
