Aloha! Welcome to Comic Con Aloha!

"Cosplayers: @meozura and @smallplanet6 | Photographer: @fzeo on Instagram" Hopefully, the stereotype comic book geek who lives in their mother’s basement has been banished for good. Not that it was ever particularly true, but over the last decade, comic book franchises have dominated pop culture. Comic conventions are huge events that bring diverse people together, showing that just about everyone is a fan. The basement-dwelling stereotype is especially untrue for people going to Comic Con Aloha. This up-and-coming convention lets people grab a bit of sunshine and see their favorite voice actors and comic artists all in the same weekend! It is the perfect combination of sunshine, relaxation, and enjoying your fandom. Say Aloha to Comics Central From February 21, 2020, ...

Replay FX Retro Gaming Convention Pittsburgh PA

I attended Replay FX, a retro gaming convention in Pittsburgh PA. I really enjoyed my time there, and definitely plan to return next year as well. The convention includes hundreds of arcade games, console games, and board games. All of the electronic games are from the 80s-90s with no modern games in sight so it's definitely aimed at Retro gamers. They had tournaments for Dr Mario, Tecmo Bowl, and Smash Brothers, to name a few. They also had a cosplay competition. There are large cash prizes for all of the competitions. We didn't enter any competitions this time, but I did cosplay, just for fun. I brought out my Love Live School Idol Festival Kotori Cosplay Costume again - I've been wearing it a lot lately, and also plan to wear it again soon for Animu at the Zoo also in Pittsburgh,...

My Love Live School Idol Festival Kotori Minami Snowbird Cosplay Costume

Note: This costume was designed for me by Kathy's Creations in Greenville PA. This is the 2nd cosplay costume that Kathy has created for me. About 2 years ago I also commissioned her for my Lunar Eternal Blue Lucia cosplay costume. I have a bad habit of not taking wig caps with me to my fittings and/or losing wig caps lol. I will buy wig cap before the anime convention next month. These pics aren't great, because of no wig cap, and I also wasn't wearing any makeup, not even lip gloss, lol. But of course I was so excited that I couldn't help taking like a million (OK about 40 lol) pictures in my costume. As I was trying it on (and taking copious amounts of pictures in the fitting room lol) Kathy was putting the finishing details on the costume such as the ribbons on the crown a

I Want To Take an Anime and Manga Tour in Japan

OMG... I want to do this. (Maybe Next Year - I don't have Vacation Time left this year since I will be going to Peru this summer) Their next tour is in just a few weeks, and seems to only happen once a year, in March coinciding with the International Anime Festival AnimeJapan. https://japandeluxetours.com/japan/group/anime-japan-tours#anime3 Visiting Japan is my life long dream. (sadly, mostly just so I can go shopping for anime, game, and doll stuff lol. Although I do want to do the museums and cherry blossoms and hot springs and other cultural things too - though mostly, I'm just a big geeky nerd who loves anime and wants to go shopping - which is what this whole tour is designed for <3) It's not that much money (well OK it is, but it's cheaper than I expected honestly).

Ript Apparel – $11 Tshirts For Geeks and Gamers – New Designs Every Day

I just discovered a great new website for Geeky Tees. The prices start at just $11 - although they do charge more for some designs, or for plus sized clothing. They offer both men and womens, and even youth clothing. They also have hoodies and lots of other goodies. Here are a few of my favorite designs. You can click on any of the pictures to go to the Ript Apparel website where you can see how the shirts look on an actual live model. They have a really cool Exclusive Deadpool X The Walking Dead T-shirt. Deadpool is so hot right now. The one thing I noticed is that their selection of sizes could use some improvement. If you're a man - they've got you covered with sizes going all the way to 5XL. However, if you're a woman, the sizes only go to 2XL. I've seen other sites that go to Wome...

Top 10 Subscription Boxes for Geek Girls

Subscription boxes are taking over the internet. If you've never heard of such a thing, you must be living under a rock. The basic premise is you subscribe by paying a monthly fee and you get a box full of monthly goods delivered to your doorstep (or digitally in the case of a few subscription services out there). You don't get to choose the items inside, so it's like Christmas, or a birthday, opening a box and being surprised every month. How exciting! Of course, you run the risk of not liking what's inside either though so it's a gamble. They have boxes for everything from beauty products, to cat toys, dog treats, and yes, even anime and gamer and geeky boxes too. This post has been modified but not "updated" to introduce new boxes, or remove boxes which may no longer be available on th
