Comic-Con International’s virtual gathering, aka Comic-Con@Home, is off to a bang with Preview Night. The digitally organized exhibit hall is live, panels and games have begun, and we here at the Collective are basking in the nerddom.
Aside from this blog, Chris Evan’s dog, and Cate Blanchett, my greatest love is probably cosplay. I love designing, I love creating, and I love collaborating with artists who share passions similar to mine. I’ve learned a lot about the community over the past few years, and I’ve learned that one of the most important relationships/connections that a cosplayer can foster is the one between photographer and cosplayer (you can read my post detailing the intricacies of this relationship here).
Halloween may have ended last night, but some of us keep the spoopy in our hearts year-round. As I lament that there are 364 days until my favorite holiday comes around again, I am also enjoying my favorite celebs’ Halloween looks. So, grab a tea or coffee, and double tap on some of these favs.
My favorite thing to do at conventions is wander the exhibition floor. It’s part swap-meet, mostly nerd-fest, and the geeky consumer’s shopping paradise. For conventions like Los Angeles Comic Con that take place close to Halloween, well, there’s more than a few vendors who bring the spoopy.

The Collective Crew has been to our share of comic and fan conventions around the globe, and we’ve written about most of them. Yet, for all the con coverage we’ve done, we’ve never really delved into the types of people you meet at conventions. So this past WonderCon, I spent quite a bit of my weekend just walking around and talking to people. It was the social exercise of the year for me because I’m a verified introvert, and this is by no means an all-inclusive list, because of course there will be people who fit into none or multiple categories.
The Collective crew is heading to WonderCon in Anaheim, California this weekend! We’re excited to be able to […]
