5 Fandom Friday: My Favorite Halloween Candies

This week’s 5 Fandom Friday prompt asks what Halloween candy I always looked for when I was trick-or-treating. Which is great, since today is HALLOWEEN. Of course, it’s one of the worst Halloweens I’ve had in a while. I’m home, either in bed or on the couch, and not dressed in costume, going to a […]

Review: Contrast

Despite being sick, I spent a few hours playing games for Extra Life (thanks to everyone who helped me reach my fundraising goal!). I played some of Slender: The Arrival, and I started and finished Contrast. I’ve been wanting to play Contrast since the PS4 was released. My boyfriend and I were killing time before […]

Sick Days

I’ve been laid up with a seriously brutal case of the flu since last Tuesday, so there hasn’t been a lot happening around here since then. I thought, though, that I would give you a few updates on what I’ve been up to. 1.  Costuming I spent the week taking advantage of any momentary burst […]

5 Fandom Friday: My Must-See List of Halloween Movies

Four Geeky (And Fairly Easy) Halloween Costumes

Halloween means costumes and while some cosplayers aren’t into going big for Halloween, I can never resist an opportunity to get into costume. Even the years that I tell myself that I’m not going to put together a “real” Halloween costume, I end up doing it. I’m currently scrambling to put together a new costume, […]

This past summer, I wrote a list of three comics that I think everyone should be reading. Now it’s October, and I’m bringing you another list. In the spirit of the holidays=, […]

30 Days of Gaming: Most Annoying Character

You guys know me. You guys know what I love. I am a Legend of Zelda fan through and through…which means that there is only one possible answer for my most annoying character:   If you ask a group of people my age who the most annoying video game character is, Navi will be one […]

Review: Batgirl #35

We all remember how the internet was set aflame by the release of the new Batgirl costume. The costume came along with the announcement that the ongoing comic was getting a new creative team–replacing the pretty much irreplaceable Gail Simone–and a “fresher” look and tone. Batgirl #35 was released today, and it has held up […]
