Anglicon Wrap-Up

Anglicon Wrap-Up

December 19th, 2017

This is your Anglicon Wrap-Up! Anglicon is one of my favorite conventions, and not just because it's everything Doctor Who and British media. It's a convention full of great people who really love their fandom. It's also a convention that I greatly enjoy being a panelist on and running the QI game show. Friday dawned with an eerie fog that later cleared enough for my husband to take this awesome shot of Mt. Rainier (aka The Mountain™) from his officeRead More...

Jet City Comic Show Wrap-Up

November 10th, 2017

This is your Jet City Comic Show Wrap-Up, 2017! Jet City Comic Show is a nice little comicon in Tacoma, WA. This year was Books & Chain's second year to vend there, this time with guest author Jennifer Brozek. I started my morning nice and early with snow coming down. O_o Normally I love snow, but not when I'm driving to Tacoma, surrounded by idiots who panic when it rains, despite living somewhere where it rainsRead More...

Steamposium Wrap-Up

Steamposium Wrap-Up

November 10th, 2017

This is your Steamposium Wrap-Up 2017! Steamposium is one of those conventions that I attended as an attendee rather than a panelist, vendor, or guest, so it was one that I was quite excited about since I'd have time to explore the dealer's hall, attend panels, and most importantly, attend their tea and fashion show, which is something of legend to hear previous attendees talk. More importantly, I was excited to wear my new fascinator with aRead More...

Galaxaar Wrap-Up

October 15th, 2017

It's time for your Galaxaar Wrap-Up post! This was our first time at the Galaxaar Pop-Culture Marketplace, which this year was held in Issaquah, WA. From the get go, we had a bit of a rough time in that Jesikah was injured and we only had 2 hours to set up the booth (which normally takes us 5 hours). This was due to limitations by the community center and not the marketplace organizers. We brought spouses with usRead More...

GeekGirlCon Wrap-Up

GeekGirlCon Wrap-Up

October 12th, 2017

As usual, GeekGirlCon was a blast! It was unusual sitting on the vendor's side of things rather than spending my convention gaming or attending shows. I was a panelist at GGC this year as well, which was loads of fun as well. Speaking of loads... This is all of our gear for our booth as we set out on Friday afternoon for set up. This is me about to unload the vehicle with Jesikah and Elise. CanRead More...
