  • 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

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 […]


  • Cosplay is not Consent: The Dragon Con Edition

    I feel the need to begin this article with the caveat that I had an amazing time at Dragon Con this year – the problem is that I have to also say that my having a good time was despite some things that happened. That said, I also think that I need to point out […]


  • Convention Harassment and What Should Be Done About It

    Trouble cropped up at PAX East recently when a group of Lara Croft cosplayers were approached by a journalist who wasted no time in asking them lewd questions. Though the man was reportedly thrown out of the convention, it was disturbing enough that it was talked about by several people involved, including one of the […]
