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 Crosland, Jim 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.
We send off Valerie on her upcoming trip with tales from Reddit’s /NoSleep subreddit, but we also comfort her with the love of spiders from SPACE! Be warned, if you’re easily spooked, we do read off a couple of scary stories in this episode. HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
The truth is, I haven’t seen a more dedicated fandom than the one for Daryl Dixon. You know, that guy from The Walking Dead television series that all fangirls and fanboys are a little nutty over. I recently just finished a marathon of season 5 of the show and got quite a healthy Norman Reedus dosage while watching the episodes back to back. Which is why this week’s Fanart GLEE is dedicated to Daryl, the most beloved zombie-killer across the nation.
On September 24th we got to go to the opening night of this year’s Knott’s Scary Farm and check out everything that the park has to offer. It was also Valerie’s first time ever experiencing a horror themed event, so needless to say the night was pretty damn awesome.
The way I feel about October and Halloween is the way most people feel about December and the winter holidays. The moment I step into that park and smell the artificial fog and sweet scent of funnel cake I am truly home.
Gizzy B and the Space Pirate Queen finally tricked Fortune Cookie into going to Knott’s Scary Farm with them this year. . . HALLOWEEN HAS OFFICIALLY STARTED PEOPLE! Fanfic Theatre: Pirates of the Caribbean.
