October 2011 – Magic House, St. Louis, MO
Generator ball + hand + holding kid = standing up of ALL OF THE HAIRS!!!
Name: Karissa Barrows
Lives in: St. Louis, MO. Sort of. Close enough. GO CARDS!
Kids: Seth, 3 years old in May. Cutest thing to grace the planet. He sleeps great, and always has.
What’s on her plate: Work full-time, single-parenting full-time, trying to get her first newly-purchased home in some sort of order, sometimes finding some time to play video games and drink Stefano Farina moscato (i.e. the best moscato on the planet).
What’s coming up: With one SDCC/NerdHQ, Dragon*Con, and PAX East (Omegathon ftw!) under her belt, she has another SDCC and Dragon*Con coming up this summer, E3 if by some miracle she can afford it, and NYCC if – again – by some miracle, she can afford it. She’s also working on the Mass Effect Cast Cosplay Initiative as its creator and general overseer/madam president/project manager person, which is occurring next year at PAX East (check out the Facebook page and follow the Initiative on Twitter)!
What she does here: Nothing at the moment, aside from the occasional sarcastic remark on a mass email (for the friggin’ win, y’all). In the meantime, you can follow her @SJBsMama.
