10 Easy-To-Put-Together Halloween/Cosplay Ideas Inspired by the Ladies of Geekdom

10 Easy-To-Put-Together Halloween/Cosplay Ideas Inspired by the Ladies of Geekdom

Halloween is my favorite time of year. We’ve talked about this. A few times. For me, it’s the real kick off of the “holiday season,” none of this waiting for Thanksgiving stuff. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not about to break out my Chrismakkuh decorations, I celebrate each holiday when the time is right. And...

WATCH: BioWare Gave Us a Look at the Next ‘Mass Effect’ at SDCC

Seems like SDCC was forever ago instead of just 2 weeks ago, and information has continued to trickle out about some of the things that were discussed at the many panels that went on. For instance, we learned that Ra’s al Ghul is coming to Arrow and Marvel has a bunch of release dates for movies...

10 Super Offsite Things to Do at SDCC 2014

For the second year in a row, we’ll be making the journey down to San Diego for the annual San Diego Comic Con… but we’re not going to the show. The actual Con is notoriously hard to get into (not to mention trying to get a hotel room) and the idea of waiting outside of...

Emily is Featured in a D Piddy Video from Anime Expo 2014!

If you’re a fan of Convention and cosplay videos, then you probably know D Piddy. He’s become quite the Con fixture over the last few years with his hilarious Deadpool vs The Universe, Titan vs. (including a twerk-tastic gem from last years Anime Expo) and other cosplay videos. But when a Kakashi cosplayer came up...

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,...
Cosplay Closet: Red Sonja's Shoulder Armor

Cosplay Closet: Red Sonja’s Shoulder Armor

This tutorial has been a long time coming so here it is: Red Sonja’s shoulder armor!  When I first decided to do Red Sonja for WonderCon, I knew I wanted my Sonja to be a battle-ready Sonja cosplay, which meant that she needed to have some protection aside from her signature metal bikini. So I came...

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...
