What was advertised as a professional cosplay panel quickly turned into a Meg Turney Q&A after none of the other scheduled cosplayers showed up.
Meg is known for her online hosting at Source Fed, YouTube and on Rooster Teeth. She's a cosplayer who's made 30-plus costumes, a journalist and host for The Know, a popular video game news channel on YouTube. She voices Neon in Rooster Teeth's popular anime "RWBY," and makes fantastic vidoes on YouTube. Her "Ask Megs" are always a delight.
The online host/cosplayer/Rooster Teeth employee sat on stage, waiting and maybe getting anxious, but not showing it.
She admitted she worked 20-plus days in a row, and that she was tired. But Meg handled the situation with complete grace and simply answered questions from the audience for around 40 minutes.
After all, the panel must go on. Here’s what happened.
June 18 came faster than I thought it would, yet not fast enough. It was the first day of Indy Popcon, a con I had never attended before, and Nichelle and I drove down to Indianapolis for the weekend. In the car on the way to the hall dressed at Batgirl, my stomach was doing that fun thing where it feels like I either ate something awful, or I was starving. I knew I wasn't starving, as evidenced by the half-empty bag of chocolate animal crackers resting in the car by my hip, but I decided to eat more just for good measure.
Conventions always made me nervous for some reason. For this con, I knew why.
2015 came to a close last night, and instead of writing a sappy blog post about how much I've changed this year, I've decided to look forward.
I don't want to bore everyone with what I accomplished this year like graduating college, starting my first job in a career, starting my blog, my YouTube channel, cosplaying, and starting my first book, I'd like to write about what I want to do this year in 2016. After all, my life's not all that exciting.
Grand Rapids Comic-Con 2015 (also known as the time I almost fell off a TaunTaun as Daenerys and flashed everyone), served an important purpose as the third con I've been to, and first I've cosplayed at.
