30 Days of Gaming: My Guilty Pleasure Game

It has taken me forever to decide what to write for this “day” of the 30 Days of Gaming challenge. I think it’s because I try my best not to feel ashamed or guilty about any of the geeky things that I enjoy. I want love the things that I love unabashedly. With that being […]

Hey guys! I opened Geekphoria to sponsorship last month, and was lucky enough to have Costume Playbook decide to sponsor my blog! With our shared loved of  pop culture, cosplay, and costumes, I think we’re a great fit together. What is Costume Playbook, you ask? It’s a great site that provides ideas and guides on how to […]

Review: Adler After Dark

Last month was my friend Amy’s birthday and, to celebrate, she wanted to go to this event at Adler Planetarium called Adler After Dark. Basically, they re-open the planetarium after hours to accommodate guests over 21 with booze, food, music, and science. It was a ridiculous amount of fun–the atmosphere is laid back, the presentations are “grown […]

Junkies Nation has relaunched! I wrote for JN last fall and winter, and then the people who run it decided they […]

Deconstructing a Costume: Lady Shredder

I’m usually the type of person who tries to make costumes as close to screen- (or page-) accurate as possible. So when I decided to make my Rule 63 Shredder costume last Halloween, I was stepping a little outside of my comfort zone. I tried to replicate the armor as accurately as possible, and stuck with […]

Game Journalism with PixiClip

The video game reporting industry has basically been stuck in a rut. Almost every account of gaming culture on every site looks the same–which is why I jumped at the opportunity to use Pixi Clip to show how we can improve video game journalism! Pixi Clip is a virtual white board where you can set […]

Anime Midwest Photoshoot: Lady Shredder

If you follow my Facebook page or my Instagram account, I’m sure you noticed that I was re-making my Lady Shredder costume from last Halloween. I really wanted to wear it to a convention, but there were some pieces of the armor that weren’t sturdy enough to make it on the con floor. Also, the […]
