Attack on Titan took the cosplay world by storm when the 2013 anime broke onto the scene and it hasn’t let go since. Cosplayers all over the world devoted their hearts to the colossal task of bringing the series to life and it was a long arduous journey full of blood, sweat and tears for many. I know this because I cosplay Mikasa and I felt like getting eaten by a titan might have been less painful than creating everything from scratch. The costumes and props themselves require so much attention to detail – from the maze of a full body harness to the daunting Three Dimensional Maneuver Gear – that seeing people produce such craftsmanship fills my heart with great pride. As a fellow Attack on Titan cosplayer, I SALUTE YOU!
The Lady Geeks move on to other topics that does not involve a franchise about cars and has Vin Diesel in it. In this episode, we talk Daredevil, the first movies that made us ‘think’ and how women are unbreakable. Fanfic Theatre: My Immortal.
If you are a fan of vampires, witches, werewolves, or even Angels then you are most likely a fan of Anne Rice. However, very few of the adventurous readers I know have gotten around to “The Sleeping Beauty” series that was originally published under the pseudonym A.N. Roquelaure back in the 1980’s before she was a seasoned writer. I came across Rice’s stories while in high school and slowly made my way through her catalog of books during the late 1990’s. To my surprise no one I knew had heard of these books. I soon realized this was not a story meant for a younger audience, but like the main character aptly named Beauty, a literary sexual awakening was sitting in my lap! I didn’t really know what the meaning of phallus was, but I was soon introduced to a plethora of sexual terminology that has had me intrigued for years to come. Fans of erotica know “50 Shades of Grey” is nothing compared to this erotica series. Why read about a billionaire sociopath when you can read about a whole kingdom dedicated to sexual foreplay and eroticism? A WHOLE KINGDOM PEEPS! There is even a village outside the kingdom that tributes, such as Beauty, are sent to when people are punished for not being subservient. It sounds crazy! Crazy awesome.
Hello and welcome to the premiere post of our new regular segment, Awesome Fanfic Monday!
Twice a month we will feature one of our favorite pieces of fan fiction and talk about what makes it so special. One of the reasons why I wanted to start this segment is because fan fiction can be an easy source for giggles. I mean, haven’t we all read the infamous My Immortal and laughed until we cried? Sometimes though I think people get so caught up in the endearingly hilarious stories like My Immortal that they forget there are some pretty righteous pieces of writing out there that deserve some credit.
And what could be more ceremonious than starting off a segment with none other than fan fiction from Batman? I mean, come on. It’s Batman.
For our very first Awesome Fanfic Monday I would like to feature one of my favorite pieces, Never Walk Away by Stoneage Woman.
YALLFest started in 2011 in the East Coast, a festival that gathered authors and hosted panels, events and signings for Young Adult fans to enjoy. This year, YALLWest (the West Coast version) was born in Santa Monica, California. This casual festival was packed with awesome guests including our friend, Marie Lu (Legend, Young Elites), Leigh Bardugo (Shadow and Bone), Ransom Riggs (Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children), Veronica Roth (Divergent) and many, many more!
It’s been awhile since I’ve done Fanart Glee and Kingsman: The Secret Service is the perfect fandom for today’s post. This movie gave me a lot of glee. Full on fangirl-squee-glee and of course, my fellow fans do not fail me with adorable fanart. I swear these are not all Gazelle art since she’s obviously the coolest character in the movie. One thing I want to mention too is that it’s awesome to see the fandom explode for this movie. There were SO many good artwork to choose from, I could be on Tumblr and Deviantart for days.
