Review: Anime Expo 2018 was Bigger, Better, and More Crowded Than Ever!

Anime Expo is with out a doubt one of our all time favorite conventions to date. Every year is filled with the biggest names in the industry coming together to showcase their upcoming shows. Cosplayers show up in their very best work, artist hustle their wares, and fans race to consume as much of the convention they can before it ends. This year our team was composed of Darth Mexican, Deegan, and ...

Review: The Geek Lyfe Rides a 2018 Hyundai Sonata SEL to Anime Expo!

Anime Expo is the nation’s largest anime convention and is very near and dear to my heart. Every single year, I look forward to traveling from Phoenix, Arizona to Los Angeles, California for a weekend filled with anime, cosplay, and breaking news! Not to mention I can always count on meeting wonderful people whether they are old friends or new homies! This year we were blessed by the car god...

Music Lyfe: Celtic Woman Concert Review by Tidesiren

Hey you guys! Tidesiren here once again. I wanted to take a stab at writing something a little different outside of my convention reviews and recommend a show in the arts. Twelve years ago, when I was twelve years old coincidentally, I remember flipping through the channels on our old television to get to 03 to watch a VHS, and being caught up instead in a PBS concert. I was caught in a trance and...

Qki and Kinoko Tackle Fanime 2018!

Fanime has been a convention I, Kinoko Cosplay, have been wanting to go to for many years, and sure enough, this is the year I finally went along with Q-Ki Cosplay! It always seemed to have the perfect balance of chill times with friends, awesome cosplay, and of course: 24 hour programming. It wasn’t until very recently that I learned that Fanime got its name by being a convention organized ...

Lucky Diamond Conquers ColossalCon 2018

Hi guys! Kathy aka Lucky Diamond Cosplay here. I had the privilege of attending ColossalCon for the first time for their 2018 show. It was my first experience at a Midwest convention, and boy do I have some things to say about my time in Sandusky, Ohio! First of all, you might be wondering, is this a convention or just a water-park? The short answer is that it is both! The Kalahari Resort is a ver...

Phoenix Comic Fest: Review of the Convention Formerly Known as Phoenix Comicon

For those of you who do not know who I am, my name is DeAngelo Murillo and I own The Geek Lyfe. Back in 2012, I attended Phoenix Comicon for the very first time and was swept off of my feet with admiration for convention culture. It is safe to say that this brand more than likely would not exist had it not been for Phoenix Comicon putting on such a fantastic event. It is this history that causes m...

Review: ReedPop’s First MCM London Comic Con!

With a very warm con out the way, ReedPop’s first London MCM ran smoothly, with a clear difference now that an American company has taken charge. Despite yet another price rise in tickets, the weekend proved to be as popular as ever. There were minimal changes in regards to entering the venue and queueing. Everyone I managed to speak to throughout the weekend said that even Saturday’s queues...

Review: Incredibles 2 Eclipses Original Film

On November 5th, 2004 the original The Incredibles film released and stole the hearts of many with its charming tale of a dad going through a mid life crisis after being unable to work as a super hero. It took 14 years in order for fans to get a sequel. Was the film good enough to live up to the first one? The answer is hell yes. Incredibles 2 picks up immediately after the first film and thrusts ...

Before the Storm: Review of the Battle for Azeroth Prequel Novel by Christie Golden

Everyone that knows me knows just how much I love Warcraft. Many of my cosplays are from World of Warcraft, I’ve had my account active almost constantly since 2006, I’m super interested in all the lore, and I’ve read all the novels so far. Naturally, I was really excited to read the new novel by Christie Golden, Before the Storm. This is the official prequel novel to the upcoming World of Warcraft...

Anime Review: Sailor Moon SuperS – Season 4 Part 1

Hey everyone! Heartless Aquarius here and I have another review for you guys. Viz Media sent us their recently released DVD/Blu-ray set of Sailor Moon SuperS. “A majestic pegasus with a golden horn has appeared in Chibi-Usa’s dreams with a request—to help him and keep his presence a secret. This plea turns out to be more than a childish dream, for the fearsome Dead Moon Circus led by the vil...

Review: First Reformed

Ethan Hawke is a talented actor, of that there can be no doubt at all. He has appeared in iconic films from The Purge to Training Day, both of which feature him in various action scenes with guns blazing and more. In First Reformed, Ethan Hawke plays a reserved Reverend by the name of Toller whose main goal is to simply tend to his small flock and maintain his church. Yet some how, some way, this ...
