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?

Posted 3 weeks ago

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).

emeraldcitycomicon:

Okay! This is our final Meetup schedule, as it will appear in the program guide.

Emerald City Comicon: Quiet Rooms

The Quiet Rooms have been put aside for those who need a mental health break from the convention floor, be it due to personal preservation, social anxiety, or health issues. Strict volume levels will be enforced, as this is for resting, not socializing.

Location: WSCC ROOMS 212 & 213

EXCELLENT!!!

I still have the Friday badge if someone needs one. $30. 

I’m not in it for the money. I just want the badge put to good use.

I’m seeing two tickets for Friday being sold for $120 on CL. That’s bonkers.

Contact me via twitter (@jamesmeiers)

In case anyone wants a Friday badge?

Since I’m cosplaying as Bobby for ECCC, do you think it would be too much to ask Mark Sheppard to recreate the “kiss”? XD

emeraldcitycomicon:

Just wanted to take a moment to post our policy on harassment on tumblr, it is also on our website, and will be in the program guide. The image attached is the sign we will have displayed throughout the convention.

Emerald City Comicon’s mission is to create a safe, awesome environment where geeks of all kinds can come together. We have a zero tolerance policy for harassment of any kind.

Harassment includes offensive verbal comments (related to race, gender, sexual orientation, body size, disability, appearance, and religion), overly sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact and unwelcome sexual attention.

Exhibitors, sponsors and guests are subject to our anti-harassment policy as well and have also been informed. In particular, exhibitors should not use images or material that surpasses a PG-13 rating at their booths. Booth staff (including volunteers) should not use over-sexualized clothing/uniforms/costumes.

If a person engages in harassing behavior, ECCC Directors and Department Heads may take any action they deem appropriate, up to and including expulsion from Emerald City Comicon (with no refund). If you are being harassed, witness someone else being harassed or have any other concerns, please contact a member of the Emerald City Comicon staff immediately (identifiable by green Minion t-shirts or black polos/Staff badges). We are happy to contact our security or local law enforcement, provide escort, a safe place, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the convention.

All attendees, exhibitors and staff are subject to this anti-harassment policy and are expected to follow these rules at all Emerald City Comicon events.

Thank you!

Emerald City is one of my very favorite shows in the world, and this is the iceberg-tip of why.

Obligatory panel plug: On Saturday, at 12:40, in Hall D, Laura Hudson, Janelle Asselin, Bobby Roberts, and I will be talking about harassment in geek communities.

Thank you, Emerald City Comic Con for being a positive example for other fan conventions when it comes to harassment issues.

It makes me so sad that this has to be said.

Also, if anyone needs a friendly, safe-harbor person to come to (or if you’re just conning alone), I’ll be around with my wife, mother-in-law, and kids all three days. You can hang with us and feel safe.
