Shequeta Smith Brings SheroCon to Culver City Mall in March
March is Women’s History Month in the U.S. and Martin Feinberg, Realtor, notes that local comic creator Shequeta Smith has found a unique way to celebrate it. Shequeta Smith—Shero Comics CEO—is partnering with Westfield Culver City Mall to host Los Angeles’ first ever female-themed pop-up comic-con called SheroCon.
SheroCon is set for Saturday March 9 from noon to 5:00 p.m. at the Westfield Mall Culver City. It will be a one-day celebration of female comic creators, cosplayers, and local sheroes “who are making a difference in the world of comics and entertainment”.
Hollywood Stuntwoman Janeshia Adams-Ginyard (Black Panther) is one of many sheroes set to appear at the mini comic-con event. There will also be an all-female artist alley featuring comic creators, a women in comics panel discussion, one-on-one Q&A’s with Hollywood writers, actresses, costumers, executives, and makeup artists from a few of Hollywood’s most popular comic book movies. The event will end with a SheroCon Cosplay competition that will be judged by Hollywood Costumers. There will also be face painting, caricatures, and makeovers from professional makeup artists.
The SheroCon pop-up con will be the first of its kind in the Culver City Real Estate area and is the brainchild of Shero Comic’s CEO, Shequeta Smith.
When explaining her reasons for creating SheroCon Smith stated, “I began searching for local events in Los Angeles that Shero Comics could partner with to celebrate the work that women have contributed to the world of comics and entertainment. I was especially looking since Marvel Studios will be releasing their first female-led film, Captain Marvel, in March. After a few weeks of coming up empty handed, the idea for SheroCon was born.”
