Zatanna Photo Gallery Featuring Doctor Strange

Zatanna is one of my favorite characters in the DC Universe! I first discovered her on Batman: The Animated Series. I began reading any book she was featured in and have enjoyed seeing her play a bigger role in media (Justice League Unlimited, Smallville and Injustice just to name a few). I have been costuming her for several years and have done many photo shoots. Check out my gallery which also features Kevin D Cosplay as Doctor Strange in a DC and Marvel team up!

Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children Movie Review

What is Tim Burton's peculiarity? Turning a good book into a bad movie, apparently. Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children is written by Ransom Riggs and was released in 2011. It topped the New York Times Best Sellers List. The sequels, Hollow City and Library of Souls, were also best sellers. Bookworms like myself were ecstatic when it was announced that visionary director Tim Burton would be making a film about the peculiar children we had grown to love. Sadly, I left the theater feeling extremely disappointed.

Experiencing Racism Within Your Own Race

"You don't look Puerto Rican."

That statement was made to me countless times throughout my childhood and teen years. It has even followed me into adulthood. The revelation of my ethnicity would come as a shock to those who inquired. The statement that genuinely follows, that I don't "look" Puerto Rican baffled me as a child.  What were Puerto Ricans "suppose" to look like? I didn't know it then but I had fallen victim to being stereo typed. What was worse was that other children and adults who were also of Puerto Rican descent, didn't accept that I was one of them. I was often accused by other Puerto Ricans of lying about my ethnicity. I was called a liar. Surely one of my parents was Caucasian? Perhaps I was too ashamed or confused to confess that either my mother or father was White.

 Both of my grandparents from my Mother and Fathers side of the family were from San Juan. They immigrated to the United States. My mother and father are Americans who were born in this country. I was born in this country. But I am of Puerto Rican descent.

Disney's Elena of Avalor Royal Gown Doll Review

She is the very first Latina Disney Princess! Elena of Avalor is a Disney channel animated show that debuted in the United States on July 22, 2016. Several new Elena dolls have hit store shelves. This review is for the Royal Gown Elena doll. She was purchased at Target for $19.99. You can also order her online via Toys R Us  HERE

The dolls are made by Hasbro, who recently acquired the Disney Princess license. For over a decade, Mattel had an exclusive contract with Disney and was making the princess dolls. Over time however, Mattel began to neglect the brand (which was evident to doll collectors like myself who noticed the dolls were suddenly being made in poor quality) and then released their own collection of princess dolls called Ever After High. This greatly displeased Disney. They left Mattel and awarded the $500 million dollar Disney Princess contract to Hasbro. A great video about the contract dispute can be viewed HERE
