This GEEKend: Mini Comic Con, Bit Bash, The Geek Show, and more

I’m feeling kind of down, geeks.  My husband and I failed to get a Hyatt room for Dragon Con 2015 this morning.  Yes, the same Dragon Con that ended less than a week ago is already selling out roomspace for 2015.  We’ll just have to hope something opens up.  Weeks and weeks of unwarranted stress,...

A Wedding of Fire and Blood: Pictures from Brewery Ommegang's Game of Thrones Party

I'm putting my own pic first, for once!  Here I am, Daenerys Targaryen.  This is the fastest costume I ever made, it only took about 3 days.  ...Granted, those were 3 days staying up past 1AM.  Worth it.
Last night, I changed my mind about Daenerys Targaryen.  I used to think this character from A Song of Ice and Fire was overrated.  She’s called The Mother of Dragons, Stormborn, Unburnt.  This girl frees slaves, gets tons of male attention, has three dragons- overpowered to the point of ridiculousness, right?  Um, wrong.  After Brewery Ommegang‘s latest...

Peter Capaldi's Doctor Who Costume: Best (and Worst!) Twitter Reactions

In the name of Gallifrey, he will punish you.
I went to Bad Wolf Coffee in Lakeview for the first time today- tasty! Recommended! While the shop isn’t in any way Doctor Who-themed, the owner is a huge Whovian.  I’d love to do promo work for the place as Rose Tyler.  :)  ”I am the Bad Wolf.  I create myself… and cappuccinos.”  Ha!  I crack...

Photo Recap: C2E2 Cosplay in the Chicago St. Patrick's Day Parade

The C2E2/ReedPop group from the front.  How many amazing characters can you count?
Remember how last year’s Chicago St. Patrick’s Day Parade was on a sunny, 80-degree day?  Remember how this year’s was just a degree or two above freezing?  I do.  I always will.  For a second, I actually thought I had to go to the hospital for my stinging, purple’d fingers… but it was worth it....

Dos and Don'ts for Geeky Halloween Costumes

As a year-round seamstress, I adore Halloween.  I get really excited about who’s going to wear what.  Thus, I’ve been discussing costume plans with my readers.  Kory F is going to dress up as Michonne from The Walking Dead.  Christine W is going to be a wildling from Game of Thrones.  BADASS, am I right?...

Big Damn Well-Dressed Heroes: An Interview with Costume Designer Shawna Trpcic

Joss Whedon is a big deal these days.  …OK, he was always a big deal, but The Avengers brought him to a whole new level.  For my part, I’ve dressed up as his characters, lead a (short-lived) Doctor Horrible shadowcast, and will be emceeing Can’t Stop the Serenity.  Yea, I’m a fan.  However, there’s someone on Team Joss...
