DRAGON CON 2015: Where has the countdown gone?


Where have countdown days 15 —> today gone, well, I had a major technological malfunction and the layouts I had for said posts were wiped out…

The GOOD NEWS is that the DragonCon app has been updated and just about everything you need to know is now in the palm of your hand (well, as long as you download the app that is) ;)

Rather than trying to play catch up with these posts, I’m going to point you our Facebook page


where I’ll be sharing any new updates as they become available.


From now until Dragon, GiGi and I are getting prepared to bring the best coverage two fan girls can possibly manage. For those of you going, please give us a shout OR even come say hello if you see us there! For those not able to attend but still wanting to experience it, PLEASE make sure you are following us on all social media platforms as we plan to do daily Con videos and posts (in addition to the post Con blogs).

If you have something you would like to see, please let us know. We haven’t gotten the opportunity to interview celebrities (yet) so anything to do with them, outside of panels, can’t happen BUT anything else Con related, is probably cover-able.

Thanks, as always, for your support!!

See you at DragonCon!!

This track has a great director and the volunteer staff is amazing. We admittedly spent a large portion of our first Dragon Con just in this track and have made many friends in the last two years (looking at you Larry, Jim, Emily, Amanda and Valdis).

Here is a sample of some of the Tolkien themed goodness that we’ve been able to capture in our past two year as WGGs:

We couldn’t let this post run without paying our respects to the incredibly kind and talented Jef Murray, who we lost earlier this month. He was one of the first people GiGI and I met at our first Dragon (2013). While we were blown away by his passion and artistic ability in portraying Tolkien’s Middle Earth, what we remember most is the time he took to share a conversation with two awestruck newbies. From that day on, I followed him on Facebook and looked forward to him sharing his art every week. You, Sir, will be misssed.

Hoping we meet in Bree,


DRAGON CON 2015: Countdown Day 17 (for real)

So, I think I was counting down from Thursday with the last post as that is when GiGi and I will be at DragonCon and our official coverage begins!!! So, with 17 days left, here’s whats up today!


One of the most anticipated events of Dragon Con is the parade. This years sees a newer/longer route to help accommodate parade spectators and Nichelle Nichols will be Grand Marshal!!  Take a look at the new route:

Please note, North Avenue at Peachtree will be closed to pedestrian and motor traffic. North Avenue MARTA riders are encouraged to follow West Peachtree to Linden. Civic Center MARTA riders can head either North to Pine or South to Ivan Allen Jr.

The Dragon Con Parade is a GREAT way to see multiple cosplay groups and guests all in one place! Here is a sample of what WGGs saw at last year’s parade!

Believe me there is plenty more where that came from! Make sure you start out a little early on Saturday to get yourself a good perch for the show!!


Throw us a wave if you are participating in the Parade!!! We’ll be with the PRESS ;)


DRAGON CON 2015: Countdown day 18 (or 17, it’s really late)

My apologies to those of you following our countdown as a WEEK has gone by without posting BUT, as you probably know, things are ever changing with conventions and I found the consistent themed countdowns weren’t going to unfold the way I wanted them to. Thus, I am going to have to change it up!! I’m not at all sure what that is going to look like but I can promise the words Dragon Con will be seen everyday from now until WeGeekGirls sets out for ATL!!


One of the things that I have noticed changes the most often is the Featured Guest list. While Dragon Con strives very hard to give us a large and meaty guest list, work obligations arise and that is more than understandable. After all, fans should want their favorite, actors/producers/authors/artists happily employed. The best way to keep up with changes in this category is to like/follow Dragon Con on Facebook  https://www.facebook.com/pages/Dragon-Con/58381388805?fref=ts and/or bookmark the page on the Dragon Con website (http://www.dragoncon.org/?q=featured_list) for a quick reference.


There are 50+ individual celebrity photo options (check out  http://froggysphotos.com/conventions/dragoncon2015.php for a complete list) but take a look at some of the group shots that are available to you…

If you are a fan of any of the above shows, the group photo ops are one of the best ways to get up close to your favorite character representations! Pre-sale is available until Saturday, August 29th and orders can be placed at the above mentioned link and updates can me monitored via  http://froggysphotos.com/. There may be additional photo ops available on-site and those must be paid in cash.

Browse the options, choose a single/group and be sure to come back post Con and share your photos on our Facebook page  https://www.facebook.com/wegeekgirls?fref=ts


Smile and say CHEESE!!

Jenevieve Broomall

“Jenevieve Broomall is a popular cover illustrator. She is most commonly known for her portrayals of female characters on her covers but also enjoys drawing monsters, designing, and is working on moving to interiors.

She has published covers with clientele ranging from IDW, Tales Told LLC Lady Death series, Aspen/Big Dog Ink, Zenescope, Bluerainbow Online, Devil’s Due Publishing, and more independent companies. She has also done character design work for Big Dog Ink.

Jen’s next project will be doing covers for Tales Told LLC’s Lady Death series and covers for Aspen/BDI Shahrazad Series.

Jen is a self-taught artist but attributes all her “formal” training to having artistic and supportive parents who taught and surrounded her with creativity from a very young age. However, she has not been drawing seriously until the birth of her first daughter which fueled her to work diligently to improve and go after a career in comics as an example to her daughters and others.

Her thoughts are if the talent level is good enough, regardless of gender, age, ethnicity, or situation it’s all down to the hard work and love for the art.”

You can find her work here:



and be sure to go find her at DC!!

See you tomorrow for more Dragon Con EPICNESS!!
