Zero tolerance: Naming my cosplay harasser

NOTE: Comments on this post are temporarily set to CLOSED, meaning they must be moderated before appearing. I want to publicly thank C2E2, Chicago’s premiere comic convention, for action they took this afternoon.

Final thoughts and cosplay from C2E2 2015 - SUNDAY

This Captain Marvel made some amazing fabric choices. <3
My C2E2 coverage is finally wrapping up this morning. I had to sleep FOREVER before I could even think about blogging. I crashed for 3 hours right after the show yesterday, then slept for another 10 at night. Being a children’s superhero is a BIG job. Jess and Kat (my photography help this weekend) joined...

Super cosplay from C2E2 2015 - SATURDAY

Yesterday's GGC photography volunteer, Jess, being photographed by today's volunteer, Kat. I LOVE YOU GIRLS!
I made a bad choice at C2E2. I bought a new cubicle’s worth of art right at the very beginning of the day. Thus, I was stuck hauling my purchases around for hours. I was dressed as Daenerys (fairly popular) and taking photos of my own, as well. I could have used four more arms.... Read more »

If it wasn’t already obvious, I will be at C2E2 all weekend. I wasn’t excited about the Chicago Comics and Entertainment Expo until this afternoon. It’s… actually an incredible (and short) story. As of this morning, I was still unemployed. I had put a spending freeze on cosplay, and had no financial wiggle room. C2E2 wasn’t... Read more »

Chicago's nerd circus: An interview with Tana Karo of Acrobatica Infiniti

Do you know the origin of the word “geek,” gentle reader? Predictably, it isn’t very flattering! The term dates back to the early 20th century. “Geeks” were circus folk- and not funny clowns or brave lion tamers. “Geek shows” featured gruesome acts, such as the biting/eating of live animals or insects. Audiences were meant to... Read more »

C2E2 2014 SUNDAY Recap: In Which I Buy Everything X-Files

I saw The Eleventh Doctor Whooves almost immediately on Sunday.  For a split second, I wondered how he could hold that screwdriver in his mouth all day.  Then, I felt stupid.
