Real Talk by J. Valdez

If you’ve been sleeping on Tekko, it’s time to wake up.  Hosted by the Pittsburgh Japanese Cultural Society, Tekko is a 4 day con, celebrated its 14th year with record attendance numbers, and what in my opinion was, an amazing weekend.

Ohayocon 2016!

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!”

Out of the Abyss, I’m Gremlik! The 8-Bit Troll you need to know.  What did I do since these goofs at Play Legit woke me up early? Well, I watched Fantastic Four.  It was an exceptional movie.  Be sure to pay full price.  Watch it in 3D even.  Bring a date.  Here is some info I found in August.  Let’s get this over with.  I’m Dizzy!

Indiana Comic Con 2015

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.

The full gallery will be uploaded here

Real Talk By: J.Valdez

This was my second time at Ohayocon. I knew I was in for a great weekend when I got to the lobby with a friend, and he ended up playing guitar for two other con goers that were singing/rapping. We didn’t know who they were, and I don’t think I saw them again during the weekend. This con was a bit different from the last, I made some friends through the facebook group, so I wasn’t just a lone wanderer this time. I met up on occasion with other con goers, friends, shared a few drinks, took a few pictures. Then at some point I decided to be on the other side of the camera. I became Wilfred, and walked through the con to see what it was like. It helped me see what it’s like to be a cosplayer, the good, the bad, and the ugly parts of it. Continue reading “Ohayocon 2015!”
