AwesomeCon – June 2017

AwesomeCon was in June this year. Despite being about 5 months pregnant, I was able to fit into my League of Their Own costumes so Gloria and I could be twinsies. I also was a part of a JWST panel on how we combine Art and Science to tell the story of the mission. Had a great weekend! Here’s pics!

We caught a panel with Phil LaMarr – voice actor from Futurama and many other things. Voice actor panels are always so entertaining!

A real Wonder Woman costume:
