We’re keeping our convention specials going this month with Kristen’s coverage of Star Wars Celebration Chicago! She recaps her experience tackling such a large convention from photo ops to panels to pin trading to trudging through the snow to get to the convention center! She gives Victoria her main takeaways from Celebration - including the encouragement she felt for the Star Wars fandom from being among all her fellow Star Wars fans as well as the importance of prioritizing your top events. Finally, Kristen shares her interviews with four spectacular women who span the Star Wars fandom: Dianne Vaznelis (aka Diha) is a digital artist and designer who has worked in the pop culture and gaming industries since 2012. Best known for her soft but vibrant palette, she has created licensed apparel designs for a number of popular properties, including her first love, Star Wars. She is currently an illustrator and assistant designer for indie tabletop publisher Archon Games.
