Shit Fan Boys Say


Comic and Pop Culture Conventions can be a lot of fun but unfortunately the exciting environment can give some attendees a level of disconnect with humanity. The sight of their favorite characters brought to life through Cosplay clouds their minds. Manners and respect are seemingly left at the door as they engage in bizarre conversations with Cosplayers.  Below are few examples of my personal interactions with "fan boys" throughout the years. All of these exchanges happened IRL. 

********

"That scar on your shoulder is pretty hot. I can put one on your back, if you want." ~ Male cosplayer whom I later found out was married.


"Where's MY kiss?" ~ Male comic-con attendee after seeing me kiss my boyfriend while dressed as Zatanna. 


"Can I take a selfie with you? I can tell people I'm f#&%-ing Wonder Woman." ~ Passerby at Free Comic Book Day. 


"Can I have a kiss?" ~ Numerous adult men at charity events.


After asking and taking a photo with me, the man kissed me on the forehead. He did not ask for consent. ~ San Diego Comic-Con.


"Why are you dressed as Belle??" ~Asked by a female cosplayer, who was dressed as a box of Pocky candy. 


"That Supergirl costume you made looks store bought." ~ Female cosplayer dressed as a Klingon. 


"Will you have my baby?" Male comic-con attendee. 


"Back off! I have a stick" ~ Me.

Professional Princess Performing: It's Not Cosplay

In November of 2013 I started my own birthday party business. The idea came about after having a conversation with a friend who has been doing Princess Parties for many years. She felt it was a good fit for me since I have been working in Early Childhood Education my entire adult life. I have held many positions in Child Care and have completed several certified courses in Early Childhood Development. I have been in the hobby of costuming for roughly 10 years. One of the first and very important lessons she taught me was that being a Princess Performer was not Cosplay.

Wonder Woman Battle Ready Toy Review


It's time for another toy review from the Wonder Woman movie collection! The Wonder Woman Battle Ready doll is made by Mattel. It was purchased at Wal-Mart for $12.88. The doll is dressed in her Wonder Woman costume. The costume is a one piece printed dress. The belt is made of plastic and is removable. The chest piece is also made of plastic and is sewn into the sides of the dress. An elastic band is around her neck, holding the chest piece into place. Her boots and bracers are removable. Her arm band is held in place with an elastic band. Her tiara is secured into her head with tabs that can be cut off. She comes with a lasso.  The dolls elbows are jointed as well as her knees. Her left hand is positioned so that she can hold her lasso.

Diana Prince Toy Review


 

The Wonder Woman movie toy collection isn't scheduled to be released until late April however, some Wal-Mart locations have all ready put them out on shelves. This review is for the Diana Prince with Hidden Sword doll. It is made by Mattel and was priced at $12.88. My local Wal-Mart only had one Diana Prince doll for sale (and now she's mine. Praise Hera!). She is wearing a blue evening gown as seen in the Wonder Woman trailer. She comes with a sword and one pair of boots.
