I finally got around to editing and adding pics of my Nathan Drake and Zombie Princess Bubblegum cosplay! I have such great memories wearing both of these to Wondercon. With Drake, it meant so much to me when people noticed my leather craftsmanship and shared their love of Uncharted with me. For PB, I loved that kids would point to me and say “It’s Princess Bubblegum!!” and sometimes get a little scared once seeing that I had a zombie face. Hope you enjoy these as much as I did wearing them!
I knew that Big Wow Comic Fest was going to be pretty fun, but I have to say I had a blast. Like Yoda says, “Size matters not” and even though Big Wow is a smaller con, they really brought it this year with some awesome guests and fun panels. Seriously, how often do you get to meet people like J.Scott Campbell and Stan Lee, but without the enormous lines? Or even sit front row to watch Adam Hughes or Frank Cho draw right before your eyes? It definitely beats having to watch them on a big screen in a 5,000 person room, that’s for sure. I mean, places like SDCC may bring the movie stars, but I’m starting to realize that you have to do 10xs the waiting in order to see maybe a guest that’s only a little bit cooler.
Since the con was just a car ride away, I decided to bring one of my most treasured art pieces Continue reading →
I know the weekend just passed, but if you don’t have any plans NEXT weekend, definitely check out Big Wow Comic Fest down in San Jose. I went for the first time last year and this year is already looking to be even better than the last, with more cosplay panels, lots of special guests such as J.Scott Campbell, Frank Cho, Travis Charest, Adam Hughes, and even Stan Lee! And Big Wow is doing something that I’ve never witnessed before – a geek fashion show! It’s right up my alley and I can’t wait to see what some of the designers come up with! Hope to see you there! I may (or may not be) in disguise, so stay tuned!
Happy Friday! Wearing one of my favorite tanks that just came back in stock – the “I Only Date Super Heroes” tank top! And coincidentally enough, I’m also wearing almost all Forever 21 clothes in this post. I may not be 21 anymore, but their clothes are seriously fun and soo affordable that I’d be surprised if there are any women out there who don’t own something from that store! But buyers be warned – you definitely have to be picky about what you buy there. T-shirts and tanks, definitely. Leggings, definitely. Jackets and pants, depends on the fabric and quality. Shoes? Maybe not. Unlike many stories I hear, I personally have never had anything “fall apart” on me or get “destroyed” in the wash, but then again, I am very picky about what I buy from there, so definitely be careful! That’s why they say, “you get what you pay for”!
The title says it all. Happy Star Wars Day! I love May 4th because it just gives you an excuse to re-watch your favorite Star Wars episode and wear your favorite Star Wars tee. Wait, I guess I do that every once in a while anyways. I guess it also gives you reasoning to be able to talk about Star Wars all day long and force your friends to listen to it. How about that? On top of that, what could be better than Star Wars day except that it happens to also be the same day as Free Comic Book Day! Amazing! The stars have aligned today and all is right in the universe. Of course I got my fix of both. What about you guys?
If there’s one thing about geeks, it’s that they love their fan art. One of my favorite things to check out at cons is the Artist Alley and you can guarantee that I will always come home with at least one new piece of art. But it doesn’t stop there. I was recently exploring Society6.com only to find that they now make printed pillow cases! So not only can you hang your geeky art, but you can cozy up to it on the couch. With that, I wanted to share a few of my favorite pieces of art that I’ve picked up from cons over the years as well as some fun ways to make your home more geeky!
It’s amazing how a nearly 20 year old gaming console can make you so happy. Suddenly feeling nostalgic on a Sunday afternoon, I decided to break out my NES, complete with 7 whole games. A very sad and unimpressive collection, I know, but don’t judge a gamer by their gaming collection. Games were pretty expensive back then! I mean, can you believe I still paid almost $30 for Caveman Games in 1990?? But just like how I completed Tomb Raider for a mere $4 using Redbox, I played most of my games from borrowing or renting them at my local video store. After reading my monthly EGM, I would pick out a few games, rent one on a Friday and beat it by Sunday. I may not have played everything, but everything I played was memorable.
