My name is Laura and my blog is the beautiful love child of my passion for fan conventions and my love for all things Jurassic Park and dinosaurs.
If you’re looking for the latest news about the geekiest events happening with a mass amount of Jurassic nerdiness, you’re in the right place!
I attended my first convention in 2008 and got hooked. Since then I’ve attended over 50 conventions all over Texas. Initially, I partnered with a college newspaper where I wrote previews and reviews of conventions and nerdy events in North Texas. Once I transferred to university I became immersed in the online platform and began Dallas Fangirl! Since starting Dallas Fangirl in 2013, I’ve expanded to social media pages including Facebook and YouTube
As an Emerging Media and Communications Major at UTD I work to integrate classic journalism skills with new media platforms to create an exciting domain that truly expresses the enthusiasm I have for the convention industry.
There are so many pop-culture events happening in North Texas. From anime conventions, comic cons, and comic book store events – every weekend can be made nerdy! Check out the convention calendar for upcoming events and to find out which ones I’ll be attending.
