    Dear Cosplayers: We Appreciate The Face Claims

    Dear Cosplayers: We Appreciate The Face Claims

    From the most famous of cosplayers such as Alodia Gosiengfiao to the most underrated ones like my friend KuroiPit, I am very grateful that they exist. Not only do they destroy the status quo, but they make stunning face claims for avid roleplayers such as myself. This has been a topic on my mind for years since I first began creating stories with fellow RPers and finally I am able to put into words how I truly feel. This is not only an article, but an open letter to the cosplayers who have managed to change the game. First off, I want to apologize for the RPers who have abused every cosplayers' photographs in a degrading fashion. It's time for the voices of both roleplay and cosplay to come together to resolve the years of damaged caused by the degenerates of the world.

    Montreal Comiccon 2017

    Montreal Comiccon 2017

    I had the pleasure of being at Montreal Comicon the weekend of July 7th 2017. My 2nd consecutive con. Last year I was honor and nervous to meet the awesome John Barrowman. You might know him as Malcolm Merlyn on the WC's Arrow or as the wonderful Captain Jack Harkness of Torchwood. It was awesome and I was so nervous... He pulled me into a hug during the photo op.

Comic conventions, horror, and collector cons. You name it, and everyone I went to, I saw lots of people walking around wearing amazing costumes. One day at New York Comic Con, I saw a guy dressed as Green Arrow and his lady was dressed as Black Canary. They looked like they practically stepped right out of the comics! I said to myself… “I wanna do that!!” so I put some things together (mind you I don't sew) and made my first cosplay, my little version of Nick Fury for East Coast Comic Con in 2015. It got a lot of attention so, I was like, let’s see what else I can do, and the rest is history.

    In every anime convention you'll go to, you will see beginner cosplayers. You can tell they're beginners because they often are the most worried about how they look. Some look great, others look awful. Ever wonder why some look great, while others look terrible?

    The Top 5 Fire Emblem Characters

    The Top 5 Fire Emblem Characters

    For those of you who do not know what it is, Fire Emblem is a turn by turn strategy game series, released on various Nintendo platforms over the last couple decades. Originally only in Japan, Fire Emblem made its way here in 2003 on the Gameboy Advance. It did not get really popular however until recently, when some of its characters were featured on the 2 most recent Super Smash Brothers games. Characters like Marth, Ike became fan favorites, which led to Nintendo sending its two newest Fire Emblem Games (Fire Emblem Awakening, and Fire Emblem Fates) to the USA. On February 2nd, Fire Emblem Heroes will be released for mobile phones everywhere. To celebrate it, I decided to figure out who the best and my favorite Fire Emblem characters are.
