Last weekend, the Mutineer and I attended our last convention of 2018: Heroes & Villians FanFest in San Jose/WalkerStalker Con. HVFF is small, but well-organized, well-staffed, and with plenty to the offer to the casual congoer. It was probably one of the best conventions I’ve ever attended, and I’ll tell you why.

Our favorite con of the year has come and gone, and though our lives be crazy right now, we all made the pilgrimage to Anaheim to geek out over our favorite fandoms. WonderCon is a cosplay haven (but more on that later), a gathering of geek culture, and above all, a place to spend your money on things you love (namely: art and comics). Here’s a few things we absolutely loved about this year’s convention:

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!

I wrote about the Le Geek So Chic fashion show earlier this year when I attended the Long Beach Comic Expo, and when it was announced that the fashion show would be at Stan Lee’s LA Comic Con this fall, I was stoked and made plans to drive to Los Angeles for the event on Friday, even though I hadn’t been planning to attend that day. Armed with a notepad and the Mutineer with her camera, we went home with stars in our eyes and at least 500 pictures to sift through.
