Long Beach Comic Con 2011 Was A Blast

Long Beach Comic Con 2011 Was A Blast

Over the weekend, nerds and zombies gathered for the 4th Long Beach Comic Con.  I love this con because you can talk to your favorite artists without waiting in long ass lines like San Diego’s Comic Con.  The artists alley had well known names such as David Finch, Darwyn Cooke and Dustin Nguyen.  The prices were more than reasonable for sketches from these great artists.  Finch was giving big discounts left and right, especially to his hardcore fans.

Comics were also at a bargain and were sold as low as $1 for famous Batman issues.  I enjoyed the show and …

Tanya Tate Invisible Woman San Diego Comic Con 2011 102 Chat With Cosplayer Nerd Tanya Tate

I first saw Tanya Tate, dressed up as The Invisible Woman at Long Beach Comic Con last year.  She looked great and I took a photo of her.  Afterwards, she gave me a flyer about herself.  I googled her name and found out she did some adult movies.  Then I started wondering if she was really into nerd culture or was she just promoting her career.  I was skeptical but the answers she gave for the exclusive interview makes me believe she’s a nerd at heart.

NERDSociety: What’s your most memorable cosplay experience and why?

Tanya Tate:  I have two. The …

Adrianne Curry, best known for winning America’s Next Top Model, got kicked out from Comic-Con for showing too much skin.  She was wearing an Aeon Flux costume which revealed her rear end.  The cops decided it was too much for the event and told her to tie a shirt around her waist as she was signing autographs for fans.  After the signing they booted her out and she changed to costume which showed less skin.

Seeing a lot of revealing cosplayers, I don’t think her costume is too revealing.  So maybe the secret rule is that cleavage is okay but not …

Anime Expo 2011 in Pictures

This had to to be one of the most fun AX I’ve ever been to.  The first ever hologram concert from Hatsune Miku brought great energy to the expo.  Attendees were really cool and the cosplayers were out in full force.  Some of these costumes are really getting sophisticated, even using mechanical devices to capture the look and feel of their favorite characters.  I love steam punk and they were represented well.  The Luke Skywalker version really stood out from the rest because it took an iconic character and put a new twist to it.

Below are several pics from the …

Anime Expo in Los Angeles, Ca is in full swing with it’s first day of panels, events and merch finishing up.

Just ’cause the panels and main hall are closed doesn’t mean you have to go home, however.  There’s all kinds of after hours entertainment like karaoke, tabletop gaming, video screenings, all
ages dance, and more continuing through the night.

I am looking forward to Hatsune Miku show, which will be her debut on an American stage – or should I say screen.  This blue-green haired, pixel maiden will be quite the event, she is sure to be the object of …

Maybe the costume is like a bad omen.  Things are just not looking good for guys trying to emulate the Batman.  Just in the past couple weeks, a sweaty armpitted crusader named Mark Wayne Williams (well he got the Wayne right!), was arrested in Michigan while dangling off the side of a building at night carrying in his possession (among other concealed weapons) a baton, chemical spray and lead-lined gloves.  The 31-year-old was charged with several counts of carrying a concealed weapon, one count of carrying a gas-ejecting weapon and another count of creating a disturbance.   (Did he forget about the …
