“Normality” reigns once again: only the corset welts remain and, thankfully, those are fading fast.

Happy Dog Days of Summer! Miss Hannah Hart’s Fave Summer Flicks

By Jennifer S. Devore as Hannah Hart, Ghost Dame of the Hotel del Coronado | Posted on 29-07-2014

For some folks, summer can mean little more than warmer days, shorter nights and a de rigueur vacation: a pleasant yet slight change-up in the regular routine. This is particularly true for those of us inhabiting tropical climes. Born in Miami and raised in SoCal, where summer is not drastically different from the rest of the year, childhood summers notably signified no school, extra Disneyland and family holidays in Hawai’i, which in turn meant a month of guava juice, beachdays and new friends...

Adrianne Curry Bullwhips Tigra Panty Offenders at SDCC 2014: Party’s Over, Kids.

San Diego’s annual invasion of dapper Doctor Whos, mysterious Batmen, chubby Lolitas and steampunk Poison Ivys has ceased; the marauders having retreated to their workaday lives and quiet homes, wherever those might be. (In fact, roughly fifty per cent of those homes are right here in San Diego, based on attendee registration info.) No one throws a Con quite like America’s Finest City and the financial handshake between Comic-Con International (CCI) and the City of San Diego is hearty,...

The calm before the storm. Photo: JSDevore The streets were eerily quiet last night. With the exception of oddly quiet construction setups and a formidable sense of a looming pop culture storm, San Diego’s Gaslamp District was nearly devoid of any signs of the true onslaught of geekage fast bearing down on America’s Finest City. Yours Truly used the time to enjoy the vast amount of personal space and the ability walk about the Gaslamp District with arms akimbo and even engaging in the...

San Diego Comic-Con 2014 Badge Quest: Victorious!

By Jennifer S. Devore as Hannah Hart, Ghost Dame of the Hotel del Coronado | Posted on 08-07-2014

Holy moly, Hellboy!! This year was a close one! If you read my Adventures in WonderCon post, you will have noted the tint of sadness that came with realizing WonderCon Anaheim (WCA) was it for the year; the Comic-Con Badge Quest Slaughter of 2014 had left Dr. Lucy and myself emotionally exhausted and near expiration, with little hope of survival on the Con battlefield. Yet, like a Phoenix, rising from Arizona -wait, that doesn’t sound right- we mustered every cell of life that remained, gathered...
