Should You Attend Phoenix Fan Fusion?

Phoenix Comic Con, Phoenix Comic Fest, and now Phoenix Fan Fusion. This is the largest convention Arizona has to offer, and during 2016, it brought over 100,000 geeks into the Phoenix Convention Center. After a few unfortunate events, Phoenix Fan Fusion suffered a sharp decline in attendance. However, the amount of people who attend an event is no true measure of quality, as Anime Los Angeles is a...[Read More]

So You Want to Hire a Photographer

Written by Chocozumo The hot glue has settled, the seams are pristine, and the paint has finally dried. Congratulations, you finished your cosplay! With the next big convention coming up, you’re expecting photos to be taken of your hard work. Unfortunately, the reality is that you can’t guarantee you’ll receive any of those pictures back. Some people take photos for their own memories, while other...[Read More]

Hey guys! Tidesiren here and I thought I would make a point in talking about something SO important, something SO amazing that it deserves a second look. D23 Expo! As you all know, my most previous visit was also my first and that was back in the summer of 2017. Less than two weeks after Anime Expo, and less than a week before San Diego Comic Con, Disney took over the Anaheim convention center, ne...[Read More]

The Geek Lyfe Takes Wild Wild West Con 8

Hi there, Lvckydiamond here with another convention review! I had the privilege to attend Wild Wild West Con this year for its 8th anniversary. I love this convention and I think it is one of the Arizona con scene’s best kept secrets. The venue is Old Tucson, located about 40 minutes from downtown, behind the mountains. By far the best part about this con is its venue. The location is full of incr...[Read More]

Location and Price Katsucon takes place in the D.C. metro area at the Gaylord National Hotel and Convention ...[Read More]

My Blizzcon 2018 Costume Contest Experience by Miss Ravencrest Cosplay

Due to the nature of going public with my experience, I have omitted one section to protect the friend mentioned in that section. [Editor’s note: This was originally submitted directly to a Blizzard community liaison, but Miss Ravencrest agreed to share this publicly. It has been edited to reflect this.] It’s been a long time since I’ve been able to consider putting it down in words and send...[Read More]

The Problematic Rise of the “Patreon Girl” and What It Means for Cosplay

Now, now. Put down that torch and pitchfork. This may be a sensitive topic many feel strongly about, but I am going to do my best to explain as objectively as possible why this trend is problematic. However, that does not justify any negative feelings towards the hard working women who may fit into this category of “Patreon girl.” Whether you feel they are “ruining cosplay” or just savvy entrepren...[Read More]
