16 of the Best League of Legends Cosplayers at Anime Expo 2014

Anime Expo 2014 was incredible, not only for the anime, but also for video games, manga, cosplay and geek culture. It also combined two of my favorite things: League of Legends and cosplay. Out of the estimated 200,000 people that attended the four day event it was not surprising to see hundreds of people cosplay...

Our Anime Expo 2014 Wrap-Up: Cosplay, Craziness & the Power of Friendship!

Anime Expo 2014: Another convention come and gone! Over the last few years, Peter has introduced me to the world of anime—I had only ever watched Sailor Moon has a kid—and I’ve become obsessed with Naruto, Bleach and the culture and community that surrounds anime and manga. So when planning our conventions for the year,...

Our WonderCon 2014 Wrap-Up: Cosplay, Red Sonja & Meeting Gail Simone!

Last year, we had no idea what to expect when we stepped onto the floor at WonderCon. Dressed as Black Canary and Green Arrow, it was one of the most fun days we’ve ever had. Even as we left the Con that day, we were talking about how we couldn’t wait to go back next...
What Cosplay (and Red Sonja) Taught Me About Myself

What Cosplay (and Red Sonja) Taught Me About Myself

Growing up, I was always “too something” or “not something enough.” I heard it all the time, that I was “too skinny,” “too tall,” “too smart,” “too quiet,” “too weird” or “not pretty enough,” “not cool enough,” “not fun enough.” And after a while, not matter how you ever felt about yourself or your level...
Have Questions About 'Star Wars Rebels'? They May Be Answered at WonderCon

Have Questions About ‘Star Wars Rebels’? They May Be Answered at WonderCon

We just finished (after rewatching all the episodes) Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and like many of you, we’re definitely sad to see it go. It was an amazing animated series that did wonders for expanding the Star Wars Universe and introduced us to the honorable Captain Rex and the awesome Ahsoka Tano, not to...

Cosplay Closet: Battle Bunny Riven— The Sword

This post comes a little later than promised, but here it is! Making the Battle Bunny Riven sword was a tough and awesome experience, and despite a few mishaps, I’m really proud to have pulled it off. I’d never even attempted to make something like this, and I’m really happy with the way it turned...

Cosplay Closet: Battle Bunny Riven— The Costume

It feels like I’ve been talking about my Battle Bunny Riven cosplay forever! I can’t remember exactly when I decided to create this cosplay to wear at Gam3rCon, but it’s finally coming down to the wire of when I’ll be actually wearing it! Before the final touches are put on the sword and I’m donning...

5 Awesome Offsite Things to Do During SDCC 2013

Trying to gain entry into SDCC is about as easy as learning how to do brain surgery overnight. To the thousands who scored the coveted badges for the biggest geek event of the year, congrats!

Titan from ‘Attack on Titan’ Invades Anime Expo

We love Con season. It’s a magical time when all kinds of people from all walks of life come to single locations and hang out together. Some dress up, some don’t. And some dress up, dance their ass off and make everyone’s day. This is exactly what happened at Anime Expo in LA this past...

Borderlands cosplay group kills it with music video from London Comic Con

Aside from the weapons and explosions and creatures, the Borderland series of games is fun because of all the unique characters. The robot who thinks we’re there to serve it, the homicidal little girl, the little man with a big, big gun. They’re all crazy, but that’s what makes them so awesome! It’s no wonder...

It’s Wednesday and that means New Comic Book Day! This is probably the best day of the week (accept for Friday, of course), because we get to get our hands on some awesome new books. There are two comic books on our list this week that are ground breaking (if not controversial for the closed...
