Featured contributors: Meet Ashly Burch and Bonnie Burton
From the voice behind strong characters in popular games to clever feminist crafting , these two featured contributors are bringing cheer and charm to GeekGirlCon this year—one panel at a time.
Check it out.
You may recognize Ashly Burch’s voice from some of your favorite games.
Ashly—a BAFTA-nominated actor and Emmy-nominated writer—is best known as Chloe Price in Life is Strange, Tiny Tina in Borderlands 2, and Cassie Cage in Mortal Kombat X.
She is also the co-star, co-writer and co-creator of the web series Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin’? Take a look at one of the most popular videos from her web series below.
In addition to Ashly’s comedy and voice acting, she speaks about social issues in the gaming industry: from bullying problems to gaming and gender. Check out some of her talks here.
She will be appearing in “Wait … I Know That Voice” in Room Tahoma 3/4 – Garnet on Sunday at 10:30 a.m.
Bonnie Burton has enough girl-powered projects to smash the patriarchy.
She is an author who writes about feminism, crafting, and pop culture. Her books include The Star Wars Craft Book, Girls against Girls, and Womanthology.
But getting crafty doesn’t just stop at books when it comes to learning from Bonnie; she also has a web show, Geek DIY.
She’s also on a web show with Felicia Day, Veronica Belmont, and Kiala Kazebee called Vaginal Fantasy Book Club Show. It dissects a new genre romance novel each month.
“Crafting with Feminism Workshop: Let’s Make Tampon Buddies!” is in Room Chelan 5 – America on Sunday at 11 a.m.
