Last weekend I attended New York Comic Con 2015 and it was fabulous. There’s something thrilling about being surrounded by hundreds of other geeks and some of the biggest names in the industry. Now, this wasn’t my first convention and it wasn’t even my first time at NYCC. I went four years ago in 2011 with my sister, when she attended school in New York.
Back then NYCC was large but not in the same sense that it is today. I remember buying my tickets a month after they went on sale and still snagging a three day pass. This year the four day passes were sold out after a few hours and nearly all tickets were gone by the end of the day. So, if you were planning on going next year, buy those tickets as soon as possible. The Convention has grown a lot, but to be honest, geek culture has grown a lot. This is clearer than ever when you visit the same convention four years later and see what has changed.
Alright, Collectors, allow me to introduce you to my newest YouTube obsession, the web series “i can’t even.” This series is the brainchild of Australian VCA graduates Hayley and Alyce Adams, twin sisters who have created a delightful nerdy comedic series about Em (Louise Cox) and Lex (Tiana Hogben), two fangirls who have a series of geeky adventures (or sometimes, misadventures) while living together. The inspiration came from the creators’ own experience in the fandom favourite social media platform of Tumblr, so the best thing about the series is that the writing is written in fluent fangirl.
