It’s 4th of July weekend coming up — or if you’re an anime fan, Anime Expo weekend! Fortune Cookie is sleep deprived and slaving over cosplay projects while the Space Pirate Queen and Gizzy B discuss the art of Batman eating a hotdog. Special background guest: Yan. Fanfic Theater: Batman x Robocop.
In this episode, Fortune Cookie talks about what the Cosplay Fandom has taught her in her life, especially about time management and patience . . . and how to panic less when sewing. The rest of the conversation has a truck full of GAME-OF-THRONES-SPOILERS-EVERYONE-DIES-OH-MAH-GAD topics so beware if you’re not caught up with the show and/or the book. Fanfic Theater: Garfield x Street Fighter.
Once again, Defective Geeks joined The Comic Bug for another round of Free Comic Book Day last Saturday. We arrived before the event opened that morning and I was amazed at the long line that was already waiting outside of the store! All kinds of free books waited inside the Bug, from children’s comics to horror to your classic Batman or Avengers. I just wanted to grab everything and run. There was also quite a number of great artists who were offering free sketches to anyone who had lined up to get their free books. There were also balloon animals and face painting for the kids — or adults!

This past Sunday I ventured into Little Tokyo to take part in the Tomo Neko Maid Cafe event benefiting The Trevor Project which provides suicide prevention and crisis intervention services to teenagers for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender youth. This is Tomo Neko Production’s third year partnering with a different charitable organization to help raise awareness through a leisurely atmosphere filled with Cosplay, video games, entertainment, and Japanese food held at the Japanese American National Museum for the first time. This isn’t your grandma’s type of charity function.
Comic Book Live was awesome enough to invite us to Frank and Son’s Cosplay Con 2013 and share a booth with them. I didn’t have much to offer, except for a few fliers but it was cool to participate at the event anyways. There were so many people, most of them were in line for Stan Lee’s autograph but tons of cosplayers also showed up. We were there for most of the morning and got to take quite a few photos. Check them out!
