Recap: Saturday at Chicago Comic Con ’14

While Friday ended on a high note, Saturday was off to a rough start. I woke up, put up my hair for my wig, put on my Superwoman make-up, put on my pants and boots, then dug around my suitcase for a bit to find… that I didn’t have my corset. Since the corset is […]

Recap: Thursday and Friday at Chicago Comic Con ’14

Comic Con. I love Comic Con. I wish I could spend my entire life living at Comic Con. Yes. Even Wizard World. Passes sold out insanely quickly this year–I missed buying a four-day pass. Luckily, I was able to get a VIP pass, with some help. I finished up my exams on Wednesday, and drove […]

How To: Keep Track of Your Comics

Of course, I’m not talking about how to physically keep track of your comic books. There’s really nothing novel to talk about there–geeks will continue to board, bag, and box comic books until a dreamer comes up with a better way to do this. I’m personally a big fan of the boxes–they’re so convenient. It’s like a filing cabinet […]

Some of these rules should be obvious but, unfortunately, aren’t. Some may be more of a matter of taste. As an introvert, I […]

Recap: Saturday at Anime Midwest

I attended Anime Midwest this past Saturday. I went partially as an excuse to wear my updated Lady Shredder costume, and to have another photo shoot with my friend Eddie (check out his page here). I also went to see Steam Powered Giraffe. I achieved the first goal, but I didn’t quite get to the […]

Geeky Disappointments: Wizard World and My Cosplay Shuffle

You may have heard me complaining about this last week, I found out that Wizard World Chicago sold out of its weekend passes. And I was upset. Chicago Comic Con was the first convention I’ve ever attended, and it’s been a staple in my con schedule ever since. It’s where I first really hung out […]

Recap: Indy PopCon (Saturday and Sunday)

For my Indy PopCon coverage on Wednesday and Friday, click here: Also, enjoy this cute video from the Nicholas Brendon Q&A that I completely forgot to talk about. Basically, this girl got dumped the day before and he’s telling the ex-boyfriend off. So on Saturday I woke up at my sister’s apartment to find that […]
