I have to admit I was a little disappointed when I found out Wondercon would be at the LA Convention Center this year. No more familiarity, no more big fountain in front, and no more post con trips to Disneyland. However, after spending 3 days at Wondercon, the LA Convention Center really did start to grow on me. True, the exhibit hall was a bit too dim, giving all cosplayers even more reason to stay out in the entrance lobby, but that was a blessing in disguise since it made it a lot easier to cosplay watch, take photos, and catch up with friends! As you know, I had an unintentional Bat-themed cosplay weekend planned and I couldn’t have been happier with how everything turned out.
Wondercon is just around the corner and for those who have had trouble finding me in the past, I’ll try to make this easy for you! Continue reading
Ever since Wondercon went away nearly 4 years ago, the Bay Area has felt a gaping comic con hole in it’s heart that wishes it could be filled. When Silicon Valley Comic Con was announced last year, I wondered if this could be it – could this be the con that would bring balance to the force? Could “the Woz” really bring together the culture of comics and the technology of the Silicon Valley all in one show and attract the right kind of audience? Silicon Valley definitely had a lot of promise – a decent line up of guests, lots of vendors, and a good location. However, like most first time cons, there were some ups and downs.
If you’ve been following me over Facebook, Instagram or even Tumblr, you may have seen the plethora of cosplay progress photos I’ve been posting. I feel like I’ve been doing one of two things in my spare time these days – working out and working on costumes. Maybe I’ve just been in hibernation too long, but it feels like it’s been forever since I made a new costume and WAY too long since I’ve been to a con! Well, this weekend, I’ll finally get a bit of con fix since there’s a new con coming right to my neighborhood – Silicon Valley Comic Con. Continue reading
If there’s one thing about fashion, it’s that it can be so empowering. I love that wearing something can bring about so many emotions – feeling girly when you’re wearing a tulle skirt, tough as nails when you’re wearing motorcycle boots, or maybe even like a secret agent when you’re representing the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. I love that this lightweight cardigan brings a mixture of ’50s school uniform flair while representing the team with a sweet logo on the back. I may not look as badass as the real guys, but it definitely makes me feel like I could kick some butt!
I am seriously in love with the Deadpool shirt I got from this month’s Level Up Your Style box – so much so that I’m going to give one away! Giveaway starts today on Instagram so don’t delay! You will receive a size small shirt, but it is pretty loose and could probably fit a medium too. You may also get some extra goodies so everyone wins! Details and rules below. Good luck!

Hopefully by now, most of you have heard of Loot Crate, what I can only describe as a “geeky subscription service”. The gist is that you pay a flat monthly fee and get an awesome box of geeky goodies once a month, which are also cleverly themed and hand selected. Well, they recently started a new subscription service that was right up my alley – a monthly box of geek clothing! Titled “Level Up Your Style“, I was immediately on board to do so and have been super excited every month to see what’s in store. Forget having to scour the internet for cool new stuff because now it just shows up at my door!! This month was their “dead” month and featured great items from The Walking Dead as well as Deadpool (which I have yet to watch :\). However, I immediately giggled when I opened this month’s package to find this adorable shirt filled with chibi Deadpools, Tacos, hot sauce, and did someone say CHIMICHANGA?? This shirt is so amazing that I will be giving one away on Instagram very soon, so keep an eye out!
