    Midsummer Scream 2019 – A Tiki Terror Extravaganza

    Midsummer Scream 2019 decided to focus on ALL of the things that you could use to define me as a fan. Halloween. Tiki. And Disney.

    What convention coverage would be whole without one of the biggest reasons for attending it?

  • Midsummer Scream 2019 : Panels & Performances

    Midsummer Scream 2019 : Panels & Performances

    When I go to conventions, I would say I catch one…MAYBE two panels at most over the span of an event’s run. This year, I caught whopping four panels!

  • Midsummer Scream 2018

    Midsummer Scream 2018

    Another Midsummer Scream attended and another countdown for the next to commence! I had such a blast once again and it was super fun actually having people I know through Instagram that I tried to say hi to as well! In fct, I had so much fun, I still forgot to take enough footage. Luckily,…

  • Nancy Nightmare & the Wizard @ Universal Bar & Grill

    Nancy Nightmare & the Wizard @ Universal Bar & Grill

    Back during Midsummer Scream, I was fangirling over meeting Nancy Nightmare and the Wizard, an alternative horror pop/rock duo that hit me up on instagram to check out their stuff last year during the Halloween countdown. Their style was definitely more my pace so I followed them and it’s just kind of gone from there.…

    Midsummer Scream 2017

    It is 75 days until Halloween and what better way to celebrate the coming season than with my coverage and reflection of my attendance at the Halloween festival I attended at the Long Beach Convention Center on the last weekend of July? What. A. Blast! Midsummer Scream was all I could have hoped and more.…

  • Comikaze 2012 : Sunday

    Comikaze 2012 : Sunday

    Day two was a little less eventful. There were plans to attend just one panel and the rest of the time was used to enjoy and peruse the exhibit hall. There didn’t seem to be as much of a line on Day Two, so we stopped by Stan Lee’s museum. I was rather underwhelmed. It…

  • Comikaze 2012 : Saturday

    Comikaze 2012 : Saturday

    There is too much to say about this convention so let’s just jump right in. I have to say for starters, that Comikaze really stepped up their game from last year. In just one year, there was an amazing improvement that was noticeable to all attendees from it’s pilot year. My complaints are small and few between…

  • The Bride of Frankenstein Cosplay

    The Bride of Frankenstein Cosplay

    If I haven’t said it before, I’ll say it again. I LOVE costuming. Wearing costumes, making costumes…I don’t know what it is, but I love the feeling of making something come to life through your own hands from the book or screen that inspired you. Last year, I made the Bride of Frankenstein, inspired by…

  • Elvira Cosplay Interviews

    Elvira Cosplay Interviews

    I’ve had a couple occurrences where I’ve been interviewed while dressed as Elvira. Although it’s not something I go out of my way to pull off, it is most certainly an ego booster. This interview is from Comikaze Expo 2011. I think the thing that sticks out most in my mind when I think of this interview…
