SDCC Recap: Our First Panel!

Share This Post

Our last recap of SDCC 2016 is a report on our very first panel, Cosplaying with Your Kid.

Neither Scout nor I had ever done a panel at any con before, so what we were thinking going for the big Kahuna on the first time out, I’m sure I don’t know, but it is kind of how we roll.

Friday @ 2-00Marriott Marquis North TowerRoom Pacific 24 - (1)

We were joined on our panel by Moderator, Anastasia Washington, who did an amazing job keeping kids and parents focused and on topic.  The kids were fantastic!  I was proud of each and every one of them.  Cosplay Michael and his squad even traveled all the way from Florida to attend.  We were so excited to meet our fellow panelists and made con buddies for life!

Following the panel, Cosplay Michael and his squad, Scout, and I had a photo shoot with Justin Davidson Photography.  Here are some of the great shots he got of us:


As always, if you want some great pictures, please book Justin here.

Thank you to everyone that came out to see our panel.  We hope you left with some good information on getting started cosplaying with your kid(s).  If you do, please send us pictures!  We would love to see what you all are up to!

This panel was a dream come true for us.  Scout and I always thought about it, but never thought that we could make it happen, until we just decided to make it happen.  Living your best life will do that for you, but you can’t do anything without the support of your friends.  We are forever grateful to you all!


This is only the beginning of our adventures!

Love, Kim and Scout
