‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Was Too Fun for Words — REVIEW

Thanks to the lovely people at Skype Moments, we were able to see Marvel’s latest film, Guardians of the Galaxy and full two days early. And we’ve been thinking long and hard these last 48 hours exactly how to put into words exactly how we felt about this movie. It was exciting, it was hilarious,...

Stop Everything: Ra's al Ghul is Coming to 'Arrow'

Stop Everything: Ra’s al Ghul is Coming to ‘Arrow’

Arrow is one of our favorite shows, and the second season solidified it as a kick ass comic book show with intelligence and heart. Fans are already frothing at the mouth for Season 3 following the exciting Season 2 finale, and lucky Comic Con goers were treated to a three minute re-cap/preview that’s now available...

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...
What Tim Burton's 'Batman' Means to Me

What Tim Burton’s ‘Batman’ Means to Me

Yesterday was the 25th anniversary of Tim Burton’s Batman, a movie that basically redefined the comic book movie genre until Iron Man and The Dark Knight changed the game. Its release date, June 23, 1989, makes the movie less than a month older than I am (which means I’ll be 25 in less than a...

Get Ready for More Geek Fashion: New Collections from HerUniverse and Vans

In recent years, it’s gotten easier to be a geek AND be fashion minded, thanks in large part to mainstream and small apparel companies alike embracing the buying power of the fandom-obsessed masses.

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.

Wil Wheaton Says What We Were All Kinda Thinking About ‘Gotham’

Wil Wheaton’s new show on SyFy premiered last week (congrats, by the way) and he, like many of us, has some reservations about the upcoming Gotham, which will chronicle Jim Gordon and not Batman. So he made his own trailer to describe what the show might cover sans Batman. BAT ASS.

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...

17 Characters Who Never Have to Worry About Getting Pinched on St. Patrick’s Day

As an Irish-American, St. Patrick’s Day is Emily’s favorite holiday. It’s a time for green beer, green clothes, as well as a few Irish drinking songs (following the green beer). And while Irish characters in our favorite fandoms are sometimes hard to find or pick out, characters with a love of the Emerald Isle favored...
