Posted  January 12, 2017  by  JIbrii Ransom

With the horrid year that is known as 2016 now closed, we start 2017 off with a bang!

Fave 2016 Odd and Obscure Cosplay Shots by FPS

Posted  December 31, 2016  by  Rodney Brown

One of the best parts of any con for me is when I see a costume so cool, so weird or so obscure I have to take a picture of it, and let the cosplayer know just how awesome and creative I think they are. That leads us to my fave 2016 odd or obscure cosplay […]

Cosplay Tribute to Our Princess, Carrie Fisher

Posted  December 27, 2016  by  Rodney Brown

There is no way to properly express the impact Carrie Fisher has had on the fandom community, the greater movie community and even society itself with her openness about addiction problems and her unflagging feminism.
