The youngest of three kids, Jessica was born to a family of cosplayers before cosplay even had a name. Attending Renaissance Faires since she was two weeks old, costuming has been a way of life for as long as she can remember. A somewhat eclectic nerd, her fandoms run the gamut from Sci Fi, Fantasy, Comedy, Horror, and esoteric cult classics.
Jessica has a long history working in the theater both on and off stage. Her love of the preforming arts lead her to relocate to Hollywood, CA where she preforms on both stage and screen, as well as behind the camera on several films and web series. In her spare time she works the comic con circuit, promoting different projects and repping various celebrities.
Jessica loves keeping up with her fandoms by running the YouTube channel Watch Me Watch Stuff, where she posts reactions and recap to her favorite shows. You can join the conversation at https://www.youtube.com/
Sarah started playing Dungeons & Dragons and performing at renaissance fairs when she was eight. Her father taught her how to play cards, her brother taught her how to play Magic, and her sister taught her how to make costumes.
The Hobbit was one of the first books she read by choice, followed by years of Dragonlance novels. Some early dates with her husband Sammy (aka Sammy G Art) included watching Warhammer 40K combats, 80’s movie nights, and listening to Harry Potter in the car. Their five children already love comics, gaming, fantasy, and drawing as much as they do.
Sarah loves sharing with the community family friendly events that come to the valley. View her blog at fresnofrugalista.blogspot.com. Contact Sarah at Sarahg@zappcon.com.
Suzi Edmonds is a married mom and grandma. Her fandoms include Firefly, 12 Monkeys, X-Files, and Outlander. She’s been a “geek girl” since she was a girl.
Long before cosplay had a name she was making costumes based on favorite movies, TV shows and characters. As her family grew, her main outlet for creative costuming (besides Halloween), was Renaissance Faire. By the time her youngest was a year old, she’d started her game booth at Faire called “Patch & Pixie Pastymes”.
In 2004 she was invited to San Diego Comic Con and hasn’t missed a year since. Now, thanks to a reversal of roles, her daughters take her to many other events! She is looking forward to dressing her grandbabies for many cons to come.
Lynndee isn’t your traditional geek. She doesn’t know anything about anime or gaming. She doesn’t sew or dress up. She is more of a behind the scene person. In high school she was part of the drama department as the Stage Manager. She revisited the role of stage manager years later for Tollberry Theater’s production of The Three Musketeers. Her stage manager career was put on hold when she became pregnant with her first child. That is when she discovered Korean Dramas. She was immediately hooked. She also is a fan of Doctor Who, Firefly, Dark Matter, Gilmore Girls, and The Real Housewives of everywhere.
Lynndee also enjoys reading. Her favorite genre is young adult but she also likes fantasy, sci fi, and romance. Some of her favorite authors are Sarah Fine, Piers Anthony, and Janet Evanovich.
