Now is your chance to meet this amazing actress and hear stories from her career and current projects!

1:30 – 2:15PM LOVE YOUR COSPLAY BODY (M100B)
One day, someone called Brichibi Cosplays “Princess Whale” and told her to go off and fry some chicken. So, she did just that, posting the pictures on the internet and writing an article for xoJane about being a plus sized cosplayer. While it’s true that nicknames like “Princess Wonderball” or lovely requests to “stop acting white” or to die a “lesbian bed death” have come her way due to her race, size, sexuality, and general geekiness, this black, lesbian, plus sized cosplayer has decided not to let it get to her and to keep enjoying what cosplay is really about: having fun and showing love to your favorite characters. But is it really possible to ignore the hate and keep moving forward? Yes! And this panel will address how.

1:30 – 2:15PM TO BE ANNOUNCED (M100I)

2:00 – 2:45PM EVERYTHING’S SHINY, CAP’N: JEWEL STAITE (ROOM 101)
Viewers of the cult-favorite Firefly know Kaylee Frye as being the optimistic, sweet member of the crew. How does Jewel Staite compare to her beloved character?

2:00 – 2:45PM SPIDER-MAN: MENACE OR SUPER-MENACE? HOSTED BY J. JONAH JAMESON (M100E)
J. Jonah Jameson himself is being flown in from New York on his latest press tour stop to discuss such topics as to why Spider-Man is a menace, why Spider-Man isn't a hero, why Spider-Man can't be trusted and why we would be better off without Spider-Man. Have a differing opinion? That means it's up to you, the audience, as guest reporters to this press conference to prove it. Square off against a professional character actor to see if you can be the reporter that forces the Daily Bugle's editor to announce a retraction. Listen to Jameson's editorial, hear him answer the panel's reporters and then prepare your own defense of Spider-Man in this interactive, entertaining, performance based panel.

J. Jonah Jameson is presented by Karl Brevik, a member of SAG/AFTRA and San Diego Comic Con International Professional. This panel has been hosted in several states as a performance based panel of entertainment. Fans of Spider-Man get all the laughs and joy of seeing J. Jonah Jameson talk his way out of almost everything thrown his way. Full of audience participation, it's a mix of a stand-up act, a roast, a Q&A and a good old fashioned sharing of Spider-Man knowledge.

2:00 – 2:45PM STORYTELLING WITH MICHAEL GOLDEN (M100H)

From the original thumbnails to the final printed version, Kool provides guidance, wisdom, and the lessons he has learned along the way as an up-and-coming talent in comics. As a bonus, each panel attendee will receive a limited edition art print!

2:30 – 3:15PM THE NON-COMPLIANT GEEK’S GUIDE TO SELF CARE (M100B)
Caring for your Self because you are worth it – and not to attain some media-fueled, idealized image of what you should be – is a radical, political act. Through our engagement with comics, sci-fi, and fantasy, members of the geek community have become experts at re-imagining the world around us. We have the skills needed to be at the forefront of this movement for social change. Commit the radical act of self-acceptance, and reclaim your heroic destiny. Your non-compliant journey starts now.

This panel will be a demonstration of the steps taken to bring an idea from script to screen. Cook will begin with a short story of how he became an animator back in the late 1970s and then describe the different departments in an animation studio and what they do to move the development of the cartoon forward. Tom will have a few scenes he has worked on over the years on video and then will open the floor for questions about either the process or any other question you may have. So come out and see first-hand how your favorite cartoons were made.

4:00 – 4:45PM INTRO TO COSPLAY WITH WIZARD WORLD COSPLAY GUEST HANNAH EVA (M100H)
A look at how Hannah Eva began cosplaying, and what it takes to enter and succeed in the hobby. Hannah Éva is a cosplayer, artist, and model from the Twin Cities. She considers herself a child at heart who never grew out of playing dress up. Hannah attended her first convention in 2014 and immediately fell in love with the cosplay culture. She has been an art student since early elementary school and has won many state awards and even a national gold medal for her art. Apart from her art, Hannah has a passion for theater. Hannah began cosplaying because she felt it was the perfect combination of her love for art and theater. She makes her own costumes and loves to put creative twists on classic looks and has even won a costume contest for them. When she is not attending conventions she is working on making costumes for herself and for others to gain experience. She has also attended charity events in costume. Hannah has always had a dream of making a career out of dressing up in costumes and with each stitch, button, and sequin she is proud to be making her dream a reality.

Detention in the Forbidden Forest, troll in the girls bathrooms, giant three-headed dogs, corrupted professors, and not to mention the Dark Lord making an appearance himself. This is all just in the first book! Throughout the course of the panel, we take an in-depth look at why saying Hogwarts is the safest place in the world couldn’t be any further from the truth! We leave no stone unturned, with topics ranging from the basilisk, Marauder's Map, dementors, Dumbledore’s actions, insider threats: intentional or non-intentional (Sorry Hagrid), Dolores Umbridge, and many more topics!
