Well, wait no longer, the first set of Beat Down Boogie videos have hit the Internet. (more…)

Although the second season of Heroes of Cosplay redeemed the majority of what was so wrong with the first season, all that artificially amped up drama and confrontation. In fact you’ll see a lot of those same Heroes of Cosplay in Cosplay Boom. The difference? This time you see the side that Heroes of Cosplay basically ignored in that first season, their love of cosplay, what it means to them and the cosplay community. (more…)

Anime Weekend Atlanta had its 20th anniversary last weekend with a weekend long celebration of everything Anime.

This past weekend the inaugural Saskatoon Comic & Entertainment Expo hit the titular Canadian city. Saskatoon? Yes, you know, the city that was mentioned in a Mystery Science Theater 3000 song that one time. It’s the birth place of  both Alpha Flight‘s Puck and WWE‘s Rowdy Roddy Piper. The grain (Quadrotriticale) that the tribbles ate in the classic Star Trek episode came from there… Well now that we’ve proven the city has its share of nerd cred, how did the first year of this event go?

Two words: Freakin’ amazing. A few quick thoughts on the weekend and a metric tonne of cosplay follow. (more…)
