Gary Sohmers is one of the founders of Pop Culture Expo in Boston during Memorial Day weekend this year — plus, he is officially the coolest person we’ve had the pleasure of having on the podcast! He spoke to us about his vision for Pop Culture Expo and the industry as he has seen it evolve over the years.
The Lady Geeks talk about the attractive “otaku” cashiers of Japan’s Animate stores, discuss why Hollywood sucks, mermaid tails and some much missed Spider News. Fanfic Theatre: ???
2014 is the Year of the Horse and our Lady Geeks are galloping into the new year! We get a little serious and discuss what our new goals are but then the conversation spirals into hot men hugging lions and Chris Hemsworth. Fanfic Theatre: Doctor Who.
Long Beach Horror & Comic-Con held its annual two-day convention on Nov. 23 and the 24th. Just like last year, popular replica cars from different franchises like Batman and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are lined up at the entrance of the convention. I especially dig the TMNT cosplayers posing in front of the Turtle van. LBCC is a small and quiet local convention and this year, the most notable change is the huge artist alley right in the middle of the convention. I spent most of my time wandering the exhibit hall and snapping photos of cosplayers. Check out my photos below!
