Con Nooga is a multi-fandom convention featuring many famous
guests from various forms of entertainment fields— including actors, artists,
authors, musicians and paranormal investigators—that took place at the legendary
Chattanooga Choo Choo over the weekend of February 17-19, 2012. Of course, the
convention also hosted numerous special events including fashion shows, a parade,
Q&A panels and, Ms. BioGamer Girl.
Ms. BioGamer Girl replaced the former Ms. Con Nooga beauty
pageant, and the new event was sponsored and hosted by BioGamer Girl Magazine.
Ms. BioGamer Girl not only judged its participants based on beauty, but the
girls also needed to possess unique skills, addictive personalities and be
knowledgeable about horror and gaming—the two genres that define what BioGamer
Girl is all about.
Contestants were tasked with completing speed and interview
rounds that asked various questions ("What horror movie villain are you
most like when you're angry and why?", "What do you feel is the
biggest challenge that horror movie victims must overcome if they want to
continue living in their movies today?", "Have you ever teabagged
another player?”) that allowed the girls to showcase their knowledge of all
things terror and gaming related. There was also a talent competition where the
girls showcased some of their special skills to win over the audience and
judges. The last and most unique portion of the pageant asked the girls to act
out different skits as classic video game characters in strange scenarios.
Over a dozen lovely women entered the Ms. BioGamer Girl
beauty pageant, but only one could walk away with the grand prize that included
a spread in the March 2012 issue of the magazine. Unfortunately for Amber
Teachey, she didn't win Ms. BioGamer Girl, but she impressed the judges and
earned the title of runner-up. She skillfully played Jill Valentine of RESIDENT
EVIL in recovering a lost cat during the zombie apocalypse as her skit during
the event. Amber is obviously a talented actress, and her acting abilities can
be also be seen in many films, such as A FISTFUL OF BRAINS and A FEW BRAINS
MORE: SUMMER OF BLOOD.
Ms. BioGamer Girl 2012 officially went to Emlee Vassilos.
Emlee enticed the judges with both her beautiful rendition of the song “Woman” and
with her enchanting acting skills she displayed in her skit—the death of
Princess Zelda of THE LEGEND OF ZELDA game franchise. In addition to an amazing
singing voice, Emlee also possesses amazing acting skills that can be seen in
her starring role in the film A FEW BRAINS MORE: SUMMER OF BLOOD among numerous
other films and television shows she has starred in over the years. She will
also be attending Con Nooga in 2013 as a special co-host and judge for the next
Ms. BioGamer Girl pageant. The event is sure to be bigger and better next year,
so make sure you make plans to attend the weekend of March 1-3, 2013!
