It's that time again...



It's this weekend already! The mecca of comic book geeks alike! Comic-Con in San Diego!

Once again, Nancy and I will BOTH be attending the convention, armed with our own agenda and schedule of panels we would like to see. I really hope I can get into at least a couple of awesome panels this year. Of course, I hope to meet cool and talented people too.

Full report will come after the weekend, but for now, I leave you with these awesome photos taken by Andrew Yoon, and posted on the Zippercut website. Thanks, guys!

pinning on the cape

Not only was Crusaders & Haters full of superhero fun-- but myself and fellow blogger, Nancy (aka Mjade) has been reunited after two years! Whew! It's been awhile! But she is currently visiting from England up until Comic-Con in San Diego next weekend.

These type of nerdy parties are more of my scene than hers, so we all appreciate her making the effort to attend! GO NANCY!

This is by far one of the more crowded Royal-T event that I've attended. The art show was curated by Danie Franzese, and the costume opening party was organized by the lovely Mandy of ZIPPERCUT. Good music, good crowd, and a great photographer (Drew Yoon) was present to take pictures at the photo booth.

Of course, the usual crowd of ladies-- and some gentlemen!-- who loves to dress up attended sporting some great costumes!

Who said nerds couldn't have a classy and fun party?

A super hero themed art show! Opening night is this Friday night, at Royal-T in Culver City, CA!

I'm trying to put together a last minute superhero inspired outfit. I might need to make a cape... I know loads of other people will be putting together really elaborate and wonderful costumes, so don't miss out!

we are purtiful

We are self-proclaimed girl-GEEKS who needed a place to write about it! We don't really do anything special with our lives, but we do enjoy the occasional comic book or fantasy film. Also, the occasional pie. With ice cream. Yeah. Ice cream.
