Real Talk By: J.Valdez

Another year, another Ohayocon come and gone, and with it, the sad reminder that real life is not as fun as Con life. Unfortunately this wasn’t the best Ohayocon. Don’t get me wrong though, I enjoyed myself like always, and so did Kat, but there were some things that didn’t work too well in favor of the convention. Continue reading “Ohayocon 2016!”

Real Talk By: J.Valdez

I only got the chance to attend Indiana Comic Con on Saturday, and I didn’t get to stay too long. I also missed out on getting a picture with Jason Momoa,  because the line was way too long and I was really hungry. But I definitely enjoyed my time there, there were many great cosplays, and a good number of interesting panels going on. Almost spent a lot of money in the dealers area, really tempted to buy the Hound’s helmet from Game Of Thrones. Hope you enjoy the picture gallery.

I also wasn’t expecting to interview or record any video, so I left my mic and stabilizer at home. Then I ran into this guy, who created his steampunk character over the course of a few years, and has a moving dragon on his shoulder.
