I have done my best to make this a spoiler-free review, and any potential spoilers will be tagged with **. Ye be warned. 

Well, I saw the thing.

The thing, if you’re wondering, is a ten-foot-tall mad Titan with a thirst for omnipotence and a taste for genocide.

Avengers: Infinity War was a wild ride from start to finish, and to be honest, I haven’t entirely sorted my feelings about it, so this review may also take you on a journey with me. It’s a journey that’s been ten years in the making, according to Marvel Studios. But is the result worth the wait?

Maybe. Maybe not.

If you’ve been anywhere near my social media lately, you may have noticed that even after almost two years, I’m still incredibly saddened by Carrie Fisher‘s unfortunate passing. I deeply miss our Space Mom, and while The Last Jedi had some incredible moments for Leia, I cannot help but want more of the rebel leader.

The new Star Wars film is due out in a few weeks, and I’m finding it hard to be excited. Han Solo is an interesting and dynamic character, sure, but does he really need a trilogy of his own? As much as I swoon over Harrison Ford (yes, he’s still got it), I don’t really mind the new actor (whatever his name is) and I love Han, I can still think of one person who deserves this film so. much. more.

For those of you who follow me on Twitter, what you’re about to read may be slightly repetitive. For those of you who don’t…if you’re not a Leia fan, you’re in the wrong place.

Now that I’ve been in the cosplay community for a few years (read: obsessed with this hobby actually), I’ve learned a few things that I wish I had known a few years ago. So, for any future or beginning cosplayers out there, here are a few relatively inexpensive items that you should absolutely have as you begin crafting your fandom.

A few months ago, we had the opportunity to catch up with artist Artinggrace at Anime Los Angeles. We have purchased a lot of Grace’s art over the years (the Collectress has several pieces hanging in her office right now) and we eagerly look forward to the next time we can visit her!

Read below for some insight to Grace’s work and her creative process!
