Wrapping It Up in 2014: Year in Review

2014yearinreview

Defective Geeks has survived (kind of, sort of?) another year of random geek shenanigans and once again, I wanted to highlight some of our accomplishments. This year was a bit more mellow than 2013 was but we got to experiment with bringing new content to the website with the help of friends. I would like to thank everyone who has stopped by to read a blog, watch a video or simply stumbled upon a photo on a post that they really liked (I see those tweets go out!).

For the people who have always supported us, especially those who remind us all the time that we are loved… THANK YOU!

Now let’s get on with our year in review.

Costume Designers Guild at SDCC 2014

Yes folks, the San Diego Comic Con posts are still forthcoming!

We just HAD to write about one of the best afternoon events we were privileged to attend at SDCC: The CDG (Costume Designers Guild) Mixer! On Friday, July 25th, the CDG local 892 rolled out the red carpet to their members and panelists to celebrate all things costuming at the Marriot Marquis.  The Costume Designers Guild (I.A.T.S.E. Local 892) is the labor union representing costume designers, assistant costume designers and illustrators in film and television.

For those not in the know, this year marked the CDG’s ninth consecutive year participating at SDCC, by offering a slew of panels on costuming and the industry, as well as sponsoring their very own Masquerade prizes and trophy!. This year’s winners were “Giant Monsters All Out Attack,” by Lisa Truong, Lynleigh Sato, Wendy Colon, and Cindy Purchase.

The CDG mixer venue was gorgeous, with our own view of the bay and plenty of food to nosh on!

Another wonderful part of this mixer was the copious amounts of costumes on display on models from various movies! We tried very hard not to feel every costume and freak out their wearers, haha. Alright, enough chit chat. On to the photos!

Thank you and See you in 2014!

2013farewell

The clock is ticking and we are a few hours away from 2014 — at least, on this side of the world. For those who already celebrated the New Year, we will join you in the future soon! 2013 was a fun year here at Defective Geeks and we would like to thank all of our fans, readers, viewers and friends for making it all possible. We love our little niche here in the world wide web and we hope that in the next year, we will have much more content for all of you to enjoy.

Here are the highlights for DG this past year. Kind of like Facebook’s “Year in Review”… except, better. ;)
