Creativity at Phoenix Comicon 2017 Part 2

More Cosplayers! by Durrilion I love costumes.  I love making them, seeing them made, wearing them, and seeing them worn.  It is one of the creative arts in which I was lucky enough to have talent.  For the record, I don’t think I sing well, and I probably won’t win any Academy Awards anytime soon.  Enough about me! This article, in all of its parts is about YOU! Yes YOU!…

Creativity at Phoenix Comicon 2017 Part 1

Cosplayers Everywhere! by Durrilion Every con I attend is full of amazing people in amazing creations.  Whether you call it ‘cosplay’ or ‘costuming’, these fan creations caught my eye! Covered in fur, this young man and his father put this ‘Game of Thrones’ giant together in about 2 to 3 weeks.  Even though he is 6′ 2″, Sage Grey wore platforms to boost his height to 7′.  It definitely made him…

Movie Review: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol II

Yes those wacky Guardians are back and better than ever!  I don’t think I’ve ever sat through a more entertaining title crawl before! The movie literally moves at light speed and you’d better be ready to keep up.  Rarely does a moment go by without a quip, a joke, a taunt, an epic space battle, or just something so completely out of the blue that if you weren’t laughing already…

Writing Badass Women: From Buffy to Zoe, and all the Women in Between

Writing Badass Women by Durrilion I grew up believing that men and women are equal.  Were she still alive, my mother would cringe to hear this, but she was a feminist – of the ‘stay at home with my kids, but don’t tell me I can’t do something’ type.  This often leaves me perplexed by people who think women are somehow inferior to men.  Men and women are human beings,…

On Recent Events, An Open Letter to Cosplayers From a Cosplayer

To my creative friends: Conventions have always been the ultimate “safe space” for nerds, geeks and superfans. Even in recent years as fandom has become more mainstream, the con scene has remained a haven for those looking to celebrate their passions. In some cases, the family/community environment has led to security more reliant on an honor system than true vigilance, with voluntary peace bonding and self-checking. It was no big…

Alan Tudyk and His "Extra Crappy Bag of Crap" at Phoenix Comicon

Alan Tudyk’s Panel at Phoenix Comicon 2017 by Durrilion Fans of Mr. Tudyk will recognize him from ‘A Knight’s Tale’, ‘Death at a Funeral’, ‘Firefly’, and other roles.  While in Phoenix this past weekend, Alan engaged fans with his humor, generosity, and all around awesomeness.  Unfortunately I was running late, and ended up sitting in the very last row.  At least I made it though! Despite the best laid plans…
