Tweeks Go To Long Beach Comic Expo 2017
This was our third year attending the Long Beach Comic Expo. We have always looked forward to attending because we have always picked up great art & amazing geek chic clothes. This year, though, it was different. It felt smaller with less opportunity for shopping. But it was really cool to see a ton of geek girls representing (shout out to the Girl Scouts!) And as always the LBCE was focused on comic books and being family friendly. There are some definite advantages to smaller comic conventions.
The panels this year didn’t have a lot of flashy names (though Jason Mamoa & all the Ghostfacers from Supernatural were the headliners), but seemed to focus on issues related to cosplay and geekdom. Of course, there are many battles to fight for greater diversity, equality, and acceptance, but we didn’t feel like we needed a panel to tell us that. Plus, if we’re going to discuss bullying, we’ll start with Anya — which we did as we sat on the stairs and vlogged about the expo.
