  • Summer Cosplay Series 1×3: Jessi

      With tomorrow being the 4th of July, this week I’m bringing you our featured cosplayer a day early! Jessi is a Georgia native and lover of all things Disney with one heck of an Internet presence…   When did you start cosplaying, and what – or who – convinced you to start? J: I […]


  • Summer Cosplay Series 1×2: Gann

    It’s week #2 of The Geekiary’s Summer Cosplay Series! Today I bring you featured cosplayer Gann, another Atlanta native, who began her cosplay endeavors with a focus on historical garb and has long since branched out to everything from anime to Game of Thrones.

  • Summer Cosplay Series 1×1: Alex

    Welcome, welcome, one and all, to The Geekiary’s new Summer Cosplay Series! I’m going to try to bring you an interview with a different cosplayer every Friday for [at least] the rest of the summer, so if you cosplay or know someone who does, and you’d like to be interviewed for our series, please email […]


  • ConCarolinas 2014: A Rousing Success!

    This past weekend I was lucky enough to attend ConCarolinas at the Hilton University Place in Charlotte, North Carolina. Of course the most exciting thing about this year’s ConCarolinas was the fact that their guest of honor was none other than George R. R. Martin, the author of the Song of Ice & Fire series […]


  • A Recap of Ice & Fire…Con, That Is!

    Last weekend was the second annual Ice & Fire Con, a Song of Ice & Fire/Game of Thrones convention held at Ravenwood Castle in New Plymouth, Ohio. As one of the three organizers, obviously I’m quite partial to this convention, and while this year was quite different from our inaugural year, it seems that everyone […]


  • RE: Forbes’ “Report from MegaCon 2014”

    I recently attended MegaCon in Orlando, Florida.  When writing my main con report I searched the Internet for other recaps of the event and I was frustrated when I came across an article from Forbes that called out all those people who ‘don’t read comics’. I mean, David DiSalvo has been buying comics since they […]


  • Emerald City Comic Con Calvacade of Cosplay!

     Sometimes, the best guests at our comic cons are those who redefine the fandom by dressing up. These costumed players, or “cosplayers”, have become a prominent part to these large geek gatherings. They represent a kind of freedom to those that share our devotion to certain beloved characters by bringing them to life. In turn, […]


  • Emerald City Comic Con 2014, Picture Parade

    Oh, Seattle and your Emerald City Comic Con.. Here downtown, it’s back for the eleventh year. This time, the grand event sold out over a month before. The news is not surprising, considering the arrivals. Throughout three large rooms and multiple panels, were many prominent comic companies including DC, Image, Boom!, and Dark Horse and a […]


  • MegaCon 2014: Enjoyable Despite its Growing Pains

    This year was my second time attending MegaCon in Orlando, Florida, but the convention itself has been around since 1993. Originally a comic book convention, eventually it expanded to be multigenre – and its attendance grows every year. In 2013 they claimed that around 65,000 people showed up; rumors are that this year they broke […]


  • AWA: My First Anime Convention

    Anime Weekend Atlanta follows on Dragon Con’s heels every year (taking place just a few weeks later and taking place just a few miles away) but it is, of course, a completely different convention. And though I’ve watched some anime, the idea of going to a full-on anime convention never really occurred to me. But […]
