Top 5 Cosplayers I follow

Top 5 Cosplayers I follow

In 2014 I got the cosplay bug… I even almost finished one! Turns out I made the dress front backwards, which was minor really and I never got the wig or shoes finished, but it was pretty fun nevertheless. I’d like to finish that one, but I’d pretty much have to start from scratch now. In 2018 I have an event which doesn’t require a cosplay, but I feel like it needs one, so I…

Happy Birthday, Sailor Moon!

Happy Birthday, Sailor Moon!

March 7th, 2017 marked 25 years since Sailor Moon first aired in Japan. I’m a “born again” Moonie, meaning I adore Sailor Moon and I have for about 20 years (that just made me feel ancient), however, I did go through a phase where I thought I was “too old” for it. It’s a shame really, that any of us ever believe that, but I fell for it just the same. But no more! I…

Pandemic: Legacy Season 1 Red Box Review

Pandemic: Legacy Season 1 Red Box Review

Pandemic: Legacy Season 1, Red Box Z-Man Games Plays 2-4 Takes about an hour Highly Recommended/5 stars/Just Get It This past weekend was our 24 Hours of Gaming event for the IWK! If you missed it, the highlights were 12 people playing Telestrations using Cards Against Humanity cards for the word choices. Yes, it is as insane and NSFW as you might imagine. And completely fun. I missed that particular game because I was cracking…

Cosplay Curious- Planning a Cosplay

Cosplay Curious- Planning a Cosplay

Updates on my end Not gonna lie- I’m excited to do this! I have bought all the fabric I need for Jem (unless I decide I feel the need to make her tights rather than buy them- but if I can buy them I absolutely will!). I also need to get earrings and probably some glitter glue or something to make the fabric shiny, and shoes… seems like buying stuff is half the battle! The…

East Coast Comic Expo 2015

I’m late in adding this post, but I hope you’ll bear with me. This was my second year attending ECCE and our second time going as a store. I won’t lie- I was pretty excited leading up to the weekend. There was so much great artwork and other pieces last year, as well as sweet cosplays and celebrity artists, and I was pretty psyched to see the offerings this year. No one disappointed. Steve and…

Beginner’s Guide to Fan Expo

Beginner’s Guide to Fan Expo

Steve and I (Tara) attended our first Fan Expo this year! It was their 20th anniversary and they had a fantastic lineup! It was also our first convention not in our home province. I have to admit, the size of Fan Expo was a bit of a shock. The convention space took up multiple floors in two buildings and approximately 120,000 people came through over the course of 4 days with the largest attendance being…
