Amazing Arizona Comic Con 2016 | Guest Preview

amazing arizona comic con

  It’s almost that time again, we’re about to hit a new con season and everyone is picking and choosing which shows to attend. Personally for me, Amazing Arizona Comic Con has always been one of my favorite AZ cons. It gives off a feel of Phoenix Comic Con, but, is a bit smaller, easier to move around, and centered more on creators. Cosplayers bring some of their most beautiful work, seeing as it is a

David Bowie: A Life Remembered

“I don’t know where I’m going from here, but I promise it won’t be boring” –David Bowie- David Robert Jones, or, better known as David Bowie, has passed away of cancer at the age of 69.

ALLISON ROAD | Terror We Crave

One morning I logged onto my PS4, looking at some of the new releases and demos. As I did, I noticed a strange game pop up for free. PT, what was it? Curious I downloaded it and promptly after playing it I didn’t sleep for a week. It was truly terrifying, giving me an anxiety attack as I went through this hell house, watching it decay and become more and more disturbing. After I managed

Why I Commission My Costumes

I’ve been a cosplayer and cosplaying since 2005. I remember my first time very well. I wore this terrible Itachi Uchiha outfit from Naruto. It was a mess, but I had such a fun time! The year prior my mother had taken me to my first convention after reading about it in our local newspaper. It was something I had never known about. I had always loved dressing up for Halloween, and here I discovered

A look at KAWAII BOX

Recently I had the pleasure to partner up with Kawaii Box, a monthly delivery service that sends cute trinkets from Japan and Korea right to your front door! Like the appeal of many of these delivery boxes, it’s like getting a gift every month, it’s a surprise, and you never know what you will get. I have always been a big fan of cute things from Japan and Korea. I work for a luxury fashion

A look at the 2015 Arizona Renaissance Festival

Recently I had the pleasure of attending the Arizona Renaissance Festival once again. Ever since I was a little girl my parents would take me, get me a turkey leg, a princess hat, and I remember it being so magical, and, it still is! Most of the time nostalgia gives us a rose-tinted look at our past, we remember things being a lot better than they use to be. I am always so pleased that the
