1000 Incredible Costume & Cosplay Ideas

Many of us GeekMoms are cosplayers; from my casually thrown together thrift store costumes through Mandy’s hand-sewn Kaylee Shindig dress right up to Dakster – our very own 501st Legion member. Although the level to which we each take our cosplay depends on our individual free time, available finances and confidence, we all love sharing photos of amazing cosplays created by others, so when I heard about 1000 Incredible Costume & Cosplay Ideas – a book part compiled by professional cosplayer Yaya Han I was excited to have a read.

SuperMe Kids Bags Uncover the Hero Within

Just in time for National Superhero Day on April 28, SuperMe backpacks and messenger bags are here!

Zombie Race for Charity & Lots of Laughs!

  A few days ago, I had the distinct privilege of competing in the only race I have ever been in, not counting elementary school field days. Every year, my town of Shreveport, Louisiana has two different charity events: Run with the Nuns, a motorcycle rally that benefits children’s health programs in our community, and… Read More
