SheroCon 2020 Brings Women in Hollywood to Westfield Culver City Mall
Female-Centered Comic-Con Flies High Just Before Cancellations
By: Shero Comics
"In the midst of everything that's happening in America right now, we are so pleased that we were able to successfully dedicate an entire day to celebrate women and girls and our all-around superpowers, said Shequeta L. Smith, CEO of Shero Comics. "With the current crisis, we came into the event unsure of how many people would show up, but we're happy to report that over fifteen hundred people descended upon our Shero Universe to support our league of Sheroes."
At SheroCon 2020, the mainstage schedule included one-on-one "Shero Talks" with Warner Bros. character designer, Dou Hong (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Batman Unlimited: Animal Instincts), and Special FX Makeup guru, KC Mussman (Ad Astra, SYFY's Face Off). There was a "Women In Film" screenwriters panel featuring tv and film writer, Kay Oyegun (This is Us, Children of Blood and Bone), comic book and tv animation writer, Mairghread Scott (Guardians of the Galaxy, Transformers)
SheroCon excitedly concluded with a "Your Favorite Shero" cosplay contest where local women and girls dressed up as their favorite female characters from films and comics. Participants performed in front of a panel of female judges, and winners – in the adults and kids category - took home a shiny gold trophy.
SheroCon is scheduled to return to Westfield Culver City Mall in March of 2021 at a soon-to-be-announced date. For more information about SheroCon and Shero Comics, please visit www.sherocomics.com and www.sherocon.com.
