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.

Created by the most charming men in comic books, Mike Wellman (writer) and Rafael Navarro (artist), Guns A’Blazin’ kicks off it’s book tour at The Comic Bug on September, 2015. Manhattan Beach’s number one comic book store was party central with live music, tons of comic books, nachos, drinks and of course, the geeks (and those associated with the self-proclaimed geeks).

Next stop: The Golden Apple in Los Angeles THIS Wednesday on September  16, 2015. Check out the event page for more information.

Party Tiger 2.0: SDCC 2015 Party List of Where to Shake Your Nerd Booty

Alright, team.

It’s that time of year, where once again, WE ENTER… THE SAN DIEGO COMIC-CON PARTY TIGER. The Party Tiger represents the true beast within us all, ready for action, scotch in hand, prepared to take one for the team and convince any doorman that THE TIGER IS ON THE LIST. Above all, Party Tiger is loyal to her friends, no matter what glitzy Hollywood party happens, she is loyal to her pack, and not a ditching digeri dingo! Parties are no fun without friends! So come with us… and EMBRACE YOUR INNER PARTY TIGER for Comic Con!!

This was me at Comic Con. Well, the tiger head was actually a backpack. And it got a lot of attention--some good, some bad, haha.

If you remember anything from our post about last year at San Diego Comic Con, it’s that we all owe it to ourselves, our friends, and OUR (lack of) DIGNITY to party until our guts say STAHHP! We had a kick ass time hanging out with nerd personalities, celebs, and, most importantly, our awesome friends last year, and this year is definitely going to be no different… with a little planning! We’ve once again whittled down the list of parties to those that meet our Party Tiger criteria: LOW cost, WON’T be a giant B to get into, and ACTUALLY sounds like fun people will be there!

If you’re thinking to yourself, “Ho hum, maybe I won’t party too hard… I’ve been to SDCC plenty of times…,” THEN WE SAY UNTO YOU… “NAYYYY!”

Now listen up: With the ever increasing scarcity of hotel rooms, I’m sure more than a few of you readers will be stacked like sardines with 8 other people in a 4-person room, your sleeping space sectioned off under a table where you have a small array of snacks and water so you do not die during the night. LOOK, trust us, WE’VE ALL BEEN THERE, and that’s even MORE reason to say FAREWELL to sleep, and commit to being the best Party Tiger you can be.

And if you wanna know where WE are during the con, we will be all over social media , sharing party info, snapping pics of amazing nerds, and probably posting one too many selfies the drunker we get. TALLY HO:

10984225_788990397848165_8739972098176982171_n

This past Monday, we celebrated another Gal-entine’s Day in Los Angeles with our fellow local lady geeks. Gal-entine’s is the celebration of female friendship started by Chubby Bunny and this is her fifth year hosting the event. What started as an excuse to dress up with a small group of our friends turned into a party that women look forward to. It’s really cool to see everyone get together and celebrate the fact that we’re girls.

Fangirl Travel: Nocking Point’s P-Town Wine Mixer 2015

“Will Travel to Fangirl”

In 2015, this has become my new mantra. When I found out that Stephen Amell, who plays Oliver Queen in Arrow, has a winery AND throws wine parties… I was more than a little excited. In a spur of the moment between flurries of text messages, Gizzy B and I decided that we were going to attend the Nocking Point wine mixer in Portland. It was a good excuse to travel, right? I’ve never been to Portland!

Jane Austen Bath Festival 2014

For years I have wanted to go to the Jane Austen Bath Festival, and this year I finally got my wish. I coerced three of my friends to go with me and we had a fantastic time.
