there is a rumor floating around there that all girls want to be princesses and grown women want to be treated like princesses. let me clear something up for you. i didn’t grow up thinking i was helpless and had to be rescued by a prince to make my life a happy ending. somehow, i knew that power lied in me and my choices determined the outcome. maybe that’s why i dig comics and superheroes so much. while they are certainly flawed in many ways, they possess the power to make things happen. aw, i always wanted super powers. but the next best thing is cosplaying someone who does have superpowers! and so i found myself at this year’s geek girl con in seattle cosplaying the princess of power: she-ra!

I had interviewed Ashley a couple weeks before about her company " Her Universe ". I thought that meeting Eckstein, the voice of "Asoka Tano" in the animated Star Wars show "The Clone Wars" for a photo op might make a great ending to the story.
I was recently asked to help spread the word about GeekGirlCon . As a geek, a girl, and rabid convention fan, obviously this is right up my alley. Of course, the powers that be then decided to host it in Seattle - a location which couldn't possibly be farther away from me and still remain in the continental U.S. - and I'm really trying not to take that personally.
