Wild Wild West Con 2018 panel Totally Intentional: A Compliment Course

March 27th, 2018

At Wild Wild West Con we join the delightful Madame Askew & the Grand Arbiter as they share strategies for wielding a well-timed compliment in the heart of a duel or during teatime. Smooth your way, make friends, & further the plots of world domination with the perfect compliment.

I like that they even provide tips on how to receive compliments!

For more on compliment dueling please see our other videos and recordings:

*NSFW*

I got to sit in on an awesome and candid panel on business from the point of views of Thomas Willeford, Tobias McCurry, Cedric Whittaker!


So you want to be a professional Steampunk? Even a professional maker or artist? It’s not impossible to live the dream but there’s a reason they call it a dream. We would love to help you out with tales of our experiences.

*By the way some personal information of the panelists was deleted for privacy sake of these Awesome Panels!*

'Don’t do it'

Join Gail Carriger, Beth Cato and Mindy Tarquini, all wonderful authors of novels filled with wonderous magic and mystery as they discuss their points of view on alternative earth histories where magic, the paranormal or time travel are real.

“Why use magic at all?”

“How d you know there wasn’t vampires and werewolves running around Victorian England?”

“I want to write about airships!”

"And that is Steampunk ladies and gentlemen!"

"...love steampunk and make it their own!"

 

This panel was moderated by our friend David Lee Summers!

Happy International Women’s Day!

March 8th, 2018

#PressforProgress

Our message for International Women's Day

Meet the lady Gamers Kellie and Jocelyne who want to talk about International Women's Day (IWD) and were celebrating it this year at Tucson Games and Gadgets. On March 8 and I think this is a new tradition for every year! Today on International Women's Day we commemorate the movement for women's rights.

While the first observance of a Women's Day was held on February 28, 1909 in New York, the 1910 International Woman’s Conference suggested March 8 to become an "International Woman's Day."

Please be grateful for all the ladies at the gaming tables and lets all be allies to each other while sharing and respecting each other at the table and outside the hobbies we love!
