Cosplayer Protip: Don't let bigots ruin your hobby

You'd think that we'd have had enough of nerd "facepalm" moments in the last few days, but it's always worth calling out internet jerks. To shrug and say "Meh, internet" is letting them win. That's the case with one Chaka Cumberbatch, ...

Men's Knuckle is a super popular men's fashion magazine here in Japan. it sells big numbers every week, and I'd be lying if I said I hadn't picked up a copy or two in my time. I'm starting to think I should grab a subscription. This week's ...

A look at Metrocon 2012

Dragon Fest '12 impressions

Well this was a nice surprise two hours before bed the night before. To be honest, I totally forgot this was coming up. It was a nice email from the Sakura-con people that informed me of it. Thank you, guys. Without that I wouldn't of known...

Animazement 2012: Cosplay gallery part 2

Anime Matsuri 2012: Cosplay gallery part 3

It turns out that the person that was cosplaying Mr. Destructoid was none other than Red Veron himself. This must also mean that he has a partner in crime that was helping him out with capturing every cosplayer on camera. To make up fo...


Anime Matsuri 2012: Cosplay gallery part 2

These Persona 4 glasses will help you see through the fog

And that's because they can fit prescription lenses if you need them. Sadly, seeing through the fog will run you the somewhat steep price of $85 at Hobby Search. I'd be interested, but I couldn't pull off the "Persona 4 Protagonist" look, s...
