    The Anime Expo was awesome!!

    The Anime Expo was awesome!!

    During this Pandemic, I am using my time to write my graphic novel, and since I can’t draw, I take a lot of photos and use them as references to send to my artist. While scrolling through my phone, I came across a picture of my husband and me when we went to the anime expo in 2019. I enjoy anime. I love the Content of the stories of the show or manga (Japanese comics). The characters and the design of the characters, and let us not forget the backstories on what inspired the creators. One style of anime, in particular, I not only found great ideas in storytelling I just got in is called Yaoi (it is Boy Love or guy on guy interaction) I remember getting ready to go to the event because it was my first time dressing up to go to the event. My costume was Noiz (Noise) from a Yaoi computer game/anime called Dramatical murder. FYI Dramatical murder is a science fiction and visual romance novel in which players assume the role of the protagonist named Aoba Seragaki. ( I won’t get into detail about it, if you want to know about it, just look it up on google.) Anyway, it was amazing to see so many people dressed up as their favorite characters from other anime shows. There were so many games that were being promoted, new animes in development, and gadgets. There were crowds of people going to booths of memorabilia, getting food, some people would get into character and act out a scene of the show their role was from. It was so exciting. I would take a lot of photos not just to post on social media, but to use as a reference because after we left the anime expo, I went home and got started on my Yaoi Graphic Novel.

    The reality of getting a film into a film festival

    The reality of getting a film into a film festival

    So I get these questions asked to me when I tell people I am a film student with a film waiting to get into festivals. I get asked “What is film Festival?”, “Is it like TIFF?” (I’m from Toronto) and “Does it mean anything?”. And the answers to all of those and more are what I am going to be writing about here.

    Staying Safe at a Convention

    Staying Safe at a Convention

    Going to a convention? Worried about if you’ll be safe or not? Well I have some tips on how you can stay safe at a convention. Whether it be an anime, comic, or gaming convention you still need to say safe. When you're new to conventions, also known as cons, there is a lot of people in large crowds, it's a very easy way to get separated from your group. Ways you can keep safe at a con is keeping your Phone on you and charged, if you go to raves or anywhere after dark at a con take someone with you and alerting the staff. Other ways would be never going to a stranger’s hotel room and never taking open drinks or food from someone you don't know.

    Los Angeles ComicCon After Stan Lee

    Los Angeles ComicCon After Stan Lee

    It’s going to be one-year next month since the great Stan Lee passed away (November 12, 2018), and it’s been tough on the world of comics and Marvel alike. Since taking over Comikaze in 2011, Stan Lee introduced Stan Lee’s Comikaze to Los Angeles in 2012. Every year in October, the Los Angeles Convention Center has been home to Stan Lee’s Comikaze, but in 2016 the name was changed to Stan Lee’s ComicCon. After the passing of Stan Lee, Los Angeles Comic Con still grows strong and has grown its audience this past year.

So check out the two people that you're about to meet. I'll share my own photo op experiences near the end of this article.

    Dragon Con 2019: One Week Later

    Dragon Con 2019: One Week Later

    My bus departed from my hometown at 4:30 in the morning. Here I am, mentally turning up excited for what was ahead. All tickets purchased in advanced, all my clothing, swimsuits and cosplay, had been packed away to a point where I can't fit anything else in them, and the hotel room had been booked. The only things I made sure had space on them were my two phones. Everyone in my family and social circle encouraged lots of pictures and photos. So I delivered.
