Convention Etiquette 101

Convention Etiquette 101 (or What to Expect When You’re Expecting A Pop Culture Convention) In the last two weeks I’ve had the pleasure of being at two brand new conventions, Stealth Con and Empower Comic Con.  Both conventions are serving communities that are relatively new to the pop culture convention scene, and I had a […]

StealthCon 2016

Are You Man Enough For A Female Superhero?

Television vs Hollywood Television has long since been more progressive when it comes to female character driven storylines.  Just take a look at Bones or Castle, two of my favorite series, both featuring very strong, female leads. And in the last year alone we’ve gotten Agent Carter, Supergirl, and Jessica Jones, to name only a few. Even shows like Arrow, Flash, and the latest DC’s Legends […]

Everyday Cosplay: Winter Soldier

  I scoured the internet to put together a cold weather look inspired by one of my favorite characters, the Winter Soldier.   Faux Leather Military Jacket from Torrid: I picked this jacket because the horizontal detailing on the front mirrors what’s going on with the Winter Soldier’s jacket, and the collars are similar in shape as well.

What To Do With An 8″ Fabric Sample From Spoonflower

One of the best things about designing my own fabrics and getting them printed through Spoonflower, is that I can order as little as an 8″ square sample of fabric from them.  In fact that’s what I do when I’m designing a new collection.  Samples cost $5, and can even cost a little less if […]
