Defective Geeks at Stan Lee’s Comikaze Expo 2015!

We were super excited to be a part of the action at Stan Lee’s Comikaze Expo this past weekend with our friends at the Comic Bug!

The Comic Bug brought their community of talented creators to Comikaze with a “pavilion” which consisted of  long rows of tables at the artist alley featuring comic artists, writers and even the new geek dating app, Cuddli. We got to sit and hang out next to artists like Dave CroslandJim Mahfood, Richard Starkings, Rafael Navarro and many, many more.

To add to the fun, we created cards that let fans express what their feelings about geeks or fangirls are. We hoped to spark conversation and pride in being a geek girl, and people did not disappoint! Take a look at some of the empowering answers, artwork, and awesome cosplay we saw from the Comikaze con-goers.

This X-Men / Jem Mashup Cosplay is Truly Outrageous!

Finally, the 80s mashup we didn’t know we were waiting for!

ChubbyBunny Michelle and Yume Ninja organized this group of rock star mutants for an X-Men and Jem mashup photoshoot! The same team that was behind the Sailor Moon Biker Gang Cosplay and the Gotham Playboy Bunnies group has brought together yet another group of totally outrageous cosplayers for “Jazz and the Hardlight Projections,” inspired by the art of Rage Gear Studios, and photographed again by Greg De Stefano.

Hit play on our Behind the Scenes video of the magic! More photos and credits below!

Love Live premiere in Los Angeles: Cry all your sparkly, weeaboo tears

If you are into anime at all, there’s no way you haven’t heard of Love Live, the insanely popular series that tells the story of a group of girls that saves their school by becoming an idol group, and gaining popularity by singing and dancing their way into people’s hearts, creating more new students for the small, failing school.

With two seasons under their belt, the 9 girls of LoveLive finish their story arc with their feature film, LoveLive! The School Idol Movie, debuting all of the world this past weekend. (Don’t worry, they are planning a new season, but it will feature different girls at a different school striving to be idols!)

NIS America distributed the LoveLive! movie across the US, including several sold out weekend showings at the Downtown Independent Cinema in Los Angeles, CA. Luckily, we (YumeNinja and Myself, ChubbyBunny Michelle) were able to score some tickets and join our weeaboo brethren to the path of our trash life, haha.

Check out our photos of fans from the Sunday showing, and then, my very, very fangirl version of a review. Spoilers below!

From the moment I happened upon her instagram account 2 years ago, I’ve been a fan of ItsLiviaChu aka Olivia Chiu. Her amazing makeup skills, prolific fun cosplay choices, and openly goofball personality have definitely helped propel her into her much deserved “Cosplay Senpai” status at Anime Expo.

I had the chance to sit down and derp around with Olivia during Anime Expo to talk more about what got her into cosplay, the cosplay community, and her experiences as a guest at Anime Expo 2015.

Cosplay Round Up: Anime Expo 2015

Another year of Anime Expo flew by, closing it’s 24th year.
As we’re coming down from our AX high, and gearing up for San Diego Comic Con, here’s a cool round up of cosplayers and cosplay gatherings we saw this year.

This year there was an abundance of love for classic shoujo manga like Sailor Moon, classic CLAMP Series, League of Legends. We also appreciated the abundance of sport anime cosplay, and the funny memes.

Many cosplayers were also able to make use of the pre-made photo sets that AX brings back every year, as well as the cosplay repair stations.

What other cosplays did you guys enjoy at AX this year?

The Craft at Hogwarts

When it was announced that Sony was attempting a remake of the 90s cult classic “The Craft” last month, the internet let out a collective groan.
Who can blame them after seeing that watered down outrageously bad Jem trailer?

However, the announcement did get my nostalgia wheels turning.
What else has witches with traits that can be divided into four?
Motherfuckin’ HOGWARTS.

It amazed me that I had actually never come across a Craft x Hogwarts mash up before. I am sure it exists.

I enlisted the help of my two Potter friends (who were free) in recreating ‘The Craft’ movie poster in a Potteresque fashion.
