E is for Events!
Now, what’s a ABC cosplay meme without adding in what you do at conventions other than cosplaying! My group of friends and I have hosted many panels (Pokemon being our most consistent one along with the PJ Slumber Party) and other misc. ones that have since-been retired. We also frequently go to the raves and sometimes participate in the panels we attend. I took my team from a losing streak to a stunning victory in the lightning round in Anime Family Feud at Ikasucon 2010 and in the same year, my friend and I participated in the masquerade with our splicer outfits. We didn’t win anything but it was a fun experience! We also frequently attend photoshoots/gatherings if other schedule conflicts don’t coincide.
Hey, I know 2 of the people in pic 4!
I had to scan this into paint, because FUCK MY MAC, but we won’t get into that right now. Bats and I wanted to wish Bethany a Happy Birthday together!
In which, Jamie drew Batman, wearing my Bat-bow, and then my heart exploded ♥
Thank you so much, my love~
Superman vs. Batman. Repeat.
Andrew Weiss has already done a pretty good job of explaining why Justice League #1 doesn’t hit the mark I think it should — in short, the creators had this one chance to hook new readers, and they really didn’t do it because this issue doesn’t even really outline the big threat from Darkseid — but I wanted to go a little deeper into how the issue closes, so if you haven’t read it yet, stop now.
If you have read it, you know the issue ends with Superman, in the pose above, having knocked Green Lantern out of commission and raring for a fight with Batman. “So what can you do?” Superman asks, while the blurb promises Superman vs. Batman next issue.
So that’s where we’re going, huh?
Look, I get it. Superman and Batman fighting is the basis of any number of who-would-win nerd discussions, and there’s a contingent of fandom that loves to see it every time it happens. And this is a new Superman and a newish Batman, so maybe the outcome will be different.
But honestly, how many times are you going to push this button, DC? Isn’t the whole basis of this rebooted universe new, fresh ideas? So why go immediately to the punch-up that Frank Miller basically put a period on 25 years ago? And that Jim Lee himself drew less than a decade ago?
Maybe it’s Pavlovian. Ring the Bats vs. Supes bell, and fans will salivate. That seems to be the thinking behind this, anyway.
I’m really hoping issue 2 will open with Batman saying “it seems that the same thing attacked you that attacked me, it works for something called Darksied, this seems big, lets team up.” As Batman is SMART and might not be sure he can take Superman in a fight, but he may try and do a quick takedown to be Alpha male like he did to Green Lantern.
I hope that Johns doesn’t go down the tired path. But I thought the new Superman doesn’t mind intimidating and scaring those who need scaring, so I think that the two of them would get along, as Superman isn’t the big blue tool of Frank Miller.
Oh my glob, you guys - it’s me and Marceline (AK) ♥
Note: So this is clearly not my Lumpy Space dress. My real Lumpy Space dress ended up being WAY too big/lumpy to fit into my carry-on luggage, so I had to leave it in Boston ;___; #cosplaywoes
Instead, I opted to wear my pink bubble dress and a PROMCOMING QUEEN sash, but I promise that the real Lumpy Space dress will make an appearance soon :)

SDCC 2011 - Day 3
Fuck this shit
I came to see harry potter for my friends birthday. I got put in a different theater. They didn’t even attempt to save me a seat.
I am probably not going to be social with said friends after today. Because I get to sit by lonesome, and I came here to support my friend.
I’m finding that whenever I do anything social with my friends that I don’t have too much interest in normally, that it ends up sucking.
