My First Experience with Cosplay

My First Experience with Cosplay

Confession: I am a huge fan of Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy.

I generally love Batman (as evidenced by the number of Batman games there are around here), but those films hold a special place in my heart.

So much so, in fact, that when I heard that the movie theatre in my town was going to have a marathon of them on opening night for The Dark Knight Rises, I had tickets within half an hour. Continue reading “My First Experience with Cosplay”

My Fall 2018 Netflix List

My Fall 2018 Netflix List

One of my sister’s favourite things to tease me about is the lack of originality in what I watch.

It’s totally fair, because I have a nasty habit of turning on Netflix, watching things on repeat and not trying anything new. Once in a while, though, I get tired of what I’m repeating, and I actually find some other things I want to watch!

The other day, I opened up Instagram for some early-morning browsing.

I don’t typically see a lot of posts from Marvel, for whatever reason, but that day, I did. Continue reading “On Marvel’s Touching Tribute to Spider-Man’s Artist”

My Fantastical Vacation: Where I’d Go If They Were Real

My Fantastical Vacation: Where I’d Go If They Were Real

Every now and again, I get bitten by the travel bug.

And lately, my computer at work has taken to rotating through a series of beautifully tropical vacation photos on its lock screen, which really isn’t helping.

So I’ve spent a lot of this week thinking about getaways, and honestly, there are so many places I’d love to visit—both in real life, and in fantasy.

Here’s where I would travel if they were real places! Continue reading “My Fantastical Vacation: Where I’d Go If They Were Real”
