Had a great time this weekend at PHX Comicon #phxcc2015
Toni had a couple costumes ready with day 1 being her Orchid from Killer Instinct that she did last year and this year’s project was Honey Lemon from Big Hero 6. After her shift for the Social Media team we went walking to see what was going on and a ton of people, especially girls, really wanted their pic taken with her. We even found one little girl who had the same costume. 🙂 It was fun to hear the moms say, “I love that she has a smart character that she likes!” All the Women in Tech discussions about missing role models that the girls and young women can see were painfully evident in those moments.
And there were plenty of other fun things going on. I loved these three pics.
And I took the opportunity to get a quick hello and picture with Charisma Carpenter (Facebook / Twitter / Instagram) who played Cordelia on Buffy and Angel. Toni and I were going to grab a pic withAlyson Hannigan and Alexis Denisof but Sat we decided to avail ourselves of a massage in the hotel and Sunday we were burned out. Anyway, this was kind of a fun moment for me.
