Amber Brite's Guide to Body Paint

How to Look Like Your Favorite ‘Alien’ By Durrilion We have all seen them at conventions.  Those people in the amazing cosplays, but what makes them REALLY stand out, is their skin.  Blue, Red, Green, even Purple! What does it take to become something non-human? At 2016’s Gameon Expo in Mesa Arizona, I had the chance to attend a panel on that very subject.  Our guide/teacher/panelist was Amber Brite.  Those…

Anime Los Angeles, Come Party With The Thousands of Friends You're About To Meet

A visit to Animé Los Angeles at the Ontario Convention Center will set you at an event where the person out of costume is in the minority and the entire place feels like a friendly party! Anime Los Angeles definitely has one of the highest per capita of people in costumes that I think I have ever seen at a convention.   Before you have even entered there is a crowd…

Anime Impulse Car Shows, Fashion Shows, Concerts, Oh My!

Anime Impulse takes place during the much larger and older event Asian American Expo at the fairgrounds in Pomona, California, but that doesn’t mean that this new anime event should be overlooked.  In fact you should add it to your list of ‘new events to keep an eye on’. Being held at a fairground instead of a convention center gives them a unique feel and, I’m sure, unique challenges.  Food…

Quick Glance: Overwatch

Well Blizzard did it, they finally released the sequel to Friday Night Combat.  Overwatch pretty much takes the best of quite a few games and combines them into one very interesting package.  Take the colorful nature of Team Fortress 2’s characters, mix in the bright color palate of League of Legends and mix in the game play of Smite and Friday Night Combat and you have Overwatch. You have a…
