We’ve got a double dose of awesome for today’s ECCC 2015 celebrity guest announcement: Rachel Skarsten and Emmanuelle Vaugier!

Currently deep in the battle between the light and dark Fae as Tamsin on the cult hit Lost Girl, Rachel Skarsten has been a mainstay in her native Canada since starting out as Bess in Little Men as a teenager, and then broke out in the U.S. playing Dinah Lance/Black Canary in Birds of Prey. She’s had roles in Flashpoint, The Listener, The L.A. Complex, Beauty and the Beast, and can be seen next February on the big screen in Fifty Shades of Grey.
 
Presently stirring up all kinds of trouble as The Morrigan on SyFy/Showcase’s Lost Girl, Emmanuelle Vaugier's no stranger to the large and small screen. From Highlander to The Outer Limits, Mythquest to Charmed, Smallville to Saw, CSI to Human Target, Supernatural to Covert Affairs, she’s always keeping busy entertaining her fans. She’s also done voices in the Need for Speed and Call of Duty video game franchises, and if that isn’t enough she also is an avid animal lover and runs a charitable foundation called The Fluffball that supports animal rescue!

Both of these guests will be at Emerald City Comicon all three days, and will be available for autographs, photo ops, and panels!

Our newest celebrity guest is Patrick Warburton!

The list of amazing characters that he has portrayed, either in animation or live action, is immense. He broke out as Puddy on Seinfeld and other shows like Dave’s World and Newsradio, and then literally personified The Tick. He’s played recurring or regular characters on 8 Simple Rules and Rules of Engagement, and can be seen on College Humor quite frequently. His new series, Sequestered, is streaming on Crackle right now.
 
He’s the voices of Agamemnon, Buzz Lightyear (TV/Video version), Mr. Steve Barkin, Kronk, Rip Riley, and most importantly: Brock Samson.
 
Mr. Warburton will be appearing at Emerald City Comicon on Saturday and Sunday only. SPOOOOOOOON! For information on all our celebrity guests, visit our website.

As you may remember, we asked Emerald City Comicon attendees to fill out a survey after this year’s show, to get a better idea of what worked, what didn’t, and who are attendees are. The majority of the data we received will remain private to our team, but we thought this piece of information was quite interesting and worth of sharing.

In response to the question, “what is your gender?”, with a blank text box to fill in, we received a wide variety of answers. When we compile the data, these are the results:

  • 52% of respondents referred to themselves as female (examples of terminology include: “cis female”, “female”, “female identifying” “girlthing”, “lady”, “Wonder Woman”)
  • 46% of respondents referred to themselves as male (examples of terminology include: “cis male”, “boy”, “dood”, “I’m a MAN!”, “male”, “man?”)
  • 2% of respondents referred to themselves in non-binary terms (examples of terminology include: “agender”, “genderfluid”, “genderqueer”, “non-binary”, “Is Bad-Ass a gender?”, “Cthulhu”, “a nebulous glow cloud”)

We can’t break down the responses further without risking a breach of privacy, but the responses we did receive were quite illuminating, and helpful in providing us with a more accurate view of our attendees.

So thank you for filling out the survey, and being honest with us about how you identify your gender. We will do our best to make sure every Emerald City Comicon attendee feels welcome at our convention, regardless of their gender identity or sexual orientation.

So, Little!Castiel got around at ECCC! He had a blast and I really appreciate the way that the fellow fans treated him. He’s still talking about it today.

If you happen to see yourself in any of these pics, please let me know so I can add you to the tags. Every last one of you helped to make my son’s first convention so special.

Hey…there I am in the bottom pic! :-)

You idjits ready for emeraldcitycomicon?

Had a great time at trivia last night with o-bloody-ellemiller0326 (who just turned 21 yesterday!!!), and her mom (with whom I’ve been friends for about 8 years now).  Again, our team took 2nd place.  One of these times we’ll get 1st!!! (if sofuckingkatty had been there, we would have nailed it!)

It’s so funny to think that someone I’ve known since she was 13 is now old enough to drink!  But she and her mom are both adorable and wonderful people and I love them dearly.

Today’s my last day of work until the 7th!!! W00T!!!  Emerald City Comicon starts TOMORROW and I’m taking the kids, Elle, and her mom.  Should be AMAZEBALLS!

If you’re going to the con and want to meet up, send me an ask/fanmail (or send me a text if you have my number).
