Here’s your chance to get to know some of them!

One of the most wonderful things about the SPN Family is that it is, in significant part, a community of women. Fangirls! Over the years, we’ve all wanted Supernatural to include female characters who are as kickass, nuanced and real as the male leads we all know and love. And over the years, the Show has given us some incredible female characters – played by some incredibly talented actresses. There are often calls for more women guests at cons – and one con coming up definitely delivers.

The Ladies of SPN Convention, being held in the Seattle Washington area in two weeks, is a con of ALL SPN women. The actresses who portrayed 12 of the amazing female characters on Supernatural are all coming together for a weekend of meeting fans and interacting on a level that’s not usually possible at a larger con. This con is billed as something different – a chance to have real conversation about the Show we all love, with a lot less hierarchy and a lot more interaction. The actresses are all excited to meet the fandom – so if you’re in the Seattle area, come by the Best Western Alderwood and have some fun! This is a unique chance to really talk to some of the cast who make Supernatural great — and no doubt to hear alot of behind the scenes stories of working with Jared, Jensen and Misha too.

Fandom and Show Love – The SPN Family at Supernatural Chicago Con

j2 grin

Our weekend at the Chicago Con brought a surreal feeling of coming full circle – in a wonderful way. Chicon was our very first Creation Supernatural con, way back in 2007 (SPN wasn’t even popular enough to warrant its own convention then, so we shared it with a few Buffy and Angel alums). We did the first interviews for our book here, and met one of our favorite people, Richard Speight, here. Back then, we didn’t know if our little book on Supernatural and its amazing fans would ever come to fruition, and we had no idea the circuitous route it would take to finally get published. It seems fitting that Fangasm: Supernatural Fangirls was published this month, and here we are back in Chicago once again. It seems even more fitting that Richard is here too, along with two of the photographers who contributed their beautiful photos to the book, Chris Schmelke and Lizz Sisson, and of course quite a few of the actors whose interviews are some of the best parts of Fangasm – Jared, Jensen, Misha, Matt, Richard and Samantha. What we could never have anticipated is that everyone connected with our favorite Show would be so supportive, let alone that they’d all actually read it!
