  • Walker Stalker Con Chicago 2015: Cosplay & Exhibit Hall Highlights

    A couple of weeks ago, I attended my first Walker Stalker convention at Navy Pier! While I had a great time fangirling over the actors at their panels and spent a regretful amount of money at the exhibit hall, I was also able to hunt down some amazing cosplayers around the convention and attend the cosplay […]

  • FEELINGS…with The Geekiary: Con Nooga 2015 Edition

    This past weekend we aired our first live, at-con episode of FEELINGS…with The Geekiary, from Con Nooga 2015 in Chattanooga, Tennessee! We show off some cosplay, talk about taking over a Walking Dead panel, and drink. Basically all you can ask for from a live convention webcast, right?   -Read our before commenting. Do not […]

  • Walker Stalker Con Chicago 2015: Convention Highlights

    Last weekend, I attended a Walker Stalker convention for the first time. The two-day event spanned from Saturday to Sunday and was held in a convention room at Chicago’s Navy Pier. I didn’t know what to expect before going there, especially since I’m relatively new to The Walking Dead fandom. Little did I know that I was […]

  • Trading Cards and More: Cryptozoic at NY Toy Fair 2015

    So you probably haven’t heard of Cryptozoic Entertainment before, which is such a shame. As it happens, I’ve seen their products, but it never registered – mostly because I haven’t collected trading cards since I was in elementary school. Wow, was I wrong to think they only offered trading cards…and there is more to the […]

  • Rave of Thrones, Atlanta-Style

    Maybe I’m just biased because I don’t like Valentine’s Day, but I honestly can’t imagine a better holiday on which to host/attend a Game of Thrones-themed event. I’ve been excited about Rave of Thrones for quite some time, and I was not disappointed! In fact, the only “complaint” I have (if you can call it that) […]

  • “Holy Toy Fair, Batman!” DC Collectibles at NYTF 2015

    From Geoff Johns, chief creative officer of DC Entertainment: “2015 is going to be another groundbreaking year for DC Collectibles… #DCTV has exploded and so we’re following suit with figures and props.” There are definitely some new additions to the DC Collectibles line featured at the NY Toy Fair this year, and not all of […]

  • All That Glitters is Vinyl: Funko at the NY Toy Fair 2015

    If you aren’t familiar with the Funko brand vinyl figures, then I’m sorry, you’re doing it wrong. I never understood the appeal of them until Dean Winchester and Castiel from the Supernatural range caught my eye at New York Comic Con this past autumn. Since then, I’ve been hooked. I had the chance to get […]

  • Looking forward to Rave of Thrones: An Interview with Kristian Nairn

    Kristian Nairn isn’t just “Hodor” on Game of Thrones – he’s an internationally acclaimed DJ and electronic music producer, a “loyal sci -fi and fantasy fan”, a World of Warcraft lover, and even a podcaster! And on Saturday February 14th, I will be attending his “Rave of Thrones”…which is exactly what it sounds like – […]
