Two amazing cons are happening this weekend, and even though we won’t be there, we wanted to put together a list of panels and events for those of you lucky enough to attend.
Geek Girl Con
- 1:00 PM – 1:50 PM, Saturday October 10th
There are many different ways you can show your geek passion. Fashion and accessories are a large part of that, but the world of geeky cosmetics is growing very quickly! Whether you show off your love of Sherlock through your nail polish or use eyeshadow to express your Borderlands obsession, there are more options than ever before to fulfill your geeky cosmetics needs. We’ll explore the current state of geeky cosmetics and what the future may hold for the industry. The panelists will discuss what inspired them to get into the business, what the process is like for creating their products, how they’ve seen the business of geek cosmetics develop over the years, and more.
- 8:00 PM – 10:00 PM, Saturday October 10th
Join GeekGirlCon for our first-ever Fashion Show! On Saturday night, a diverse group of geek girls will take to the runway to model outfits from a selection of local geek fashion companies. See how these companies are combining their geeky passions with fashion and find out what inspires them. We’ll be celebrating how empowering geek fashion can be for every geek girl and highlighting the work that still needs to be done to make geek fashion diverse and accessible to everyone! Free swag bag to the first 100 attendees! Everyone will receive a raffle ticket to potentially win great prizes. Come to Room 301/302 and join the fun as we put a spotlight on how inclusive geek fashion can make a difference for geeky women everywhere!
