Familiar to many, Chris AdottaSmith has been active on the Virginia convention circuit for about twenty years. She attended SheVaCon when it was still in Staunton. Then she moved to the peninsula and found MarsCon where she ran the Con Suite for several years. She eventually moved up to Vice Chair in 2015, and Chair in 2016. From there she found RavenCon (where she ran Children’s Programming for three years) and Mysticon, too.
Chris is certainly a local fan. However, to define a fan, one must define her passions. Chris has many things that quicken her heart… She loves being with people, and hates sleeves. She firmly believes in feeding the hungry, but dislikes shoes. She loves kids, and is forever in “teacher” mode!
Pertaining to fandom there are many things she loves: Reading (Tarzan, Pern, Middle Earth, The Chronicles of Prydain, anything Arthurian), comics (Classics Illustrated, Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Captain America, Doctor Strange, Ka-Zar, Hawkman, Captain Marvel, Daredevil, Thor, Alpha Flight, Wolverine), media (Star Wars, Star Trek, Firefly, Stargate: SG-1, Harry Potter) and gaming (Gamma World, MERP, Vampire: The Masquerade). Chris had an original box set of Dungeons and Dragons and played AD&D for years.
Which all adds up to Chris loves cons!
