What was advertised as a professional cosplay panel quickly turned into a Meg Turney Q&A after none of the other scheduled cosplayers showed up.
Meg is known for her online hosting at Source Fed, YouTube and on Rooster Teeth. She's a cosplayer who's made 30-plus costumes, a journalist and host for The Know, a popular video game news channel on YouTube. She voices Neon in Rooster Teeth's popular anime "RWBY," and makes fantastic vidoes on YouTube. Her "Ask Megs" are always a delight.
The online host/cosplayer/Rooster Teeth employee sat on stage, waiting and maybe getting anxious, but not showing it.
She admitted she worked 20-plus days in a row, and that she was tired. But Meg handled the situation with complete grace and simply answered questions from the audience for around 40 minutes.
After all, the panel must go on. Here’s what happened.
June 18 came faster than I thought it would, yet not fast enough. It was the first day of Indy Popcon, a con I had never attended before, and Nichelle and I drove down to Indianapolis for the weekend. In the car on the way to the hall dressed at Batgirl, my stomach was doing that fun thing where it feels like I either ate something awful, or I was starving. I knew I wasn't starving, as evidenced by the half-empty bag of chocolate animal crackers resting in the car by my hip, but I decided to eat more just for good measure.
Conventions always made me nervous for some reason. For this con, I knew why.
YouTube is the best online sharing site for vidoes, and I tend to watch a variety of people. I usually lean toward the geeky, hence my first two choices, but my tastes enjoy many different types.
