San Diego Comic Con 2016: Scenes Around The Con

San Diego Comic Con—aka, Nerd Christmas in the Summer— came and went. I attended for the entire weekend this year and snapped a handful of photos of cosplayers and all the cool things around the convention. There were way more that I missed, of course. The heat was brutal this year and I am too much of a wuss to walk in extreme heat. Fortunately, there were still tons of things to see and do. Check out the photo slideshow below! You can also view the photos on our Facebook page as well.

Find Your D’Arcy & Live Your Regency Dreams: The Jane Austen Evening

As a rabid Jane-ite, one who considers themselves an expert in all things Jane Austen, I was pleased as a Regency spiked punch to be able to attend the Jane Austen Evening this year, which is held annually at the Pasadena Masonic Lodge by the Society for Manners and Merriment.

The event consistently sells out within minutes online, with lucky patrons being able to choose between just the dance ticket, or combining it with a sit down tea service beforehand. Although the demand for tickets continues to grow, the Society for Manners and Merriment insists on keeping the venue and the size that it is, to ensure a unique, intimate, and carefully crafted event for its patrons.
If you are curious about this event, but wonder what to wear, worry not! Even though there is often a plethora of beautiful regency garments worn by attendees, the ball also welcomes those without timeline appropriate attire to simply wear formal dress clothes.
Step into the world of Jane Austen, and check out some of the beautiful garments, dances, and decor of this wonderful event!

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.
