30 Days of Gaming: My First Video Game

30 Day Video Game Challenge Day 1: Your Very First Video Game Like most people in their mid-twenties, there was really only one video game console when I was a kid: the NES. And, in my house, there were only two games. The first was Tetris. The second was this beauty. I spent a lot […]

C2E2 Photoshoot: Rogue

Hey everyone! I’m still recovering from my trip back to Chicago yesterday (So. Sleepy.), so I thought that I would share some of the photos from my Sunday photoshoot at C2E2. I wore my Rogue costume to take pictures with C.B. Lindsey, who was absolutely great and made such wonderful photos.   See more photos […]

Cosplay Tips: Costumes After a Con

You made your costume. You rocked it at the convention. Now you’re home from the convention–what do you do, now? Mending and Tending A convention can be rough on a costume, so your first priority is to look over your costume. You worked hard making it, and now is not the time to stop caring […]

Let Me Tell You About My Cat!

I’ve been reading the Red Lanterns series lately, and if you follow me on Twitter you will have seen this tweet I made earlier: If you know nothing about the Green Lantern comics (and, by extension, nothing about the other Lantern Corps), the Red Lanterns are a group powered by rage and vengeance. I had […]

Recap: Saturday at C2E2

Saturday, being Saturday, was the longest day at C2E2. But it was OFFICIALLY our first day at the con this year–or at any convention this year! We took forever to leave our first hotel and get to the Con hotel/convention center. This is definitely, 100% due to the fact that the first hotel room was […]
