The First SqueeCon Takes Flight

On December 1st, The Squee! Project  will host its very first gathering of creators, consumers, and fans for a day of community at the Lyric Hall Theater in New Haven, Connecticut.

The Squee Project is a collective of fangrrl creators.

The Program so far includes featured screenings of Wayward: The Documentary, a sneak preview of the upcoming docu-series Looking For Leia, the premiere of the third installment of the Squee! Project web-series, and a program of short films.

Well known cosplay guests include:

  • Cate Broomhead & Christine Evans of The_Cos_n_Effect
  • Rowena Cosplays
  • Ayla Ocasio & Jacob Daniel Womack
  • Jenn Wotchertonks

and more to be announced.

About the Squee Project

The Squee! Project is a docu-series that explores different aspects of the fangrrl experience in each episode. We have screened at dozens of festivals and conventions, presented panels and won awards.  The name Squee! comes from the fangrrl term for joyous excitement.
