Thrift Store Cosplay Day 10

Day 10: Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet from Pride and Prejudice When I was in the 10th grade, I was supposed to read Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, but I totally didn’t. I bought the cliff notes and actually…didn’t even read those. I think I got an F…I definitely deserved an F! But worse thanContinue reading “Thrift Store Cosplay Day 10”

Nerd in the City Book Club is on Goodreads

Before Star Wars: The Force Awakens came out in theaters, I attempted to make my way through the old canon of Expanded Universe materials. But since I only started in January of last year, I didn’t get very far. There is just so much to get through and I am a slow reader. I likeContinue reading “Nerd in the City Book Club is on Goodreads”

NITC Book Club: Star Wars Edition

This week I’m reading the first book in The Jedi Academy Trilogy by Kevin J. Anderson, Jedi Search. Don’t forget (as if you could) none of these are official canon anymore.

NITC Book Club: Star Wars Edition

I am embarking on a rather large undertaking. For those super fans out there, you know what I mean when I say Expanded Universe. And you also know that the entire library of books that you previously believed to be canon has been relegated to Star Wars Legends. Meaning, they no longer exist in theContinue reading “NITC Book Club: Star Wars Edition”

8 Months Till Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens

Yes, the waiting is getting harder and harder. Especially with the new trailer out this week. Which, if you haven’t seen yet, must mean you are living in a cave on a desert planet far, far away. For those of us who aren’t a crazy, old man, take another look: Yeah, so patience isn’t exactlyContinue reading “8 Months Till Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens”

5 Fandom Friday

My Favorite Conventions Today’s 5 Fandom Friday topic is the 5 conventions you’ve been to or wish to attend. The very first convention I ever attended was Star Wars Celebration. I took my brother for his birthday and it opened a whole new world for me. I’d never been to a con before that. IContinue reading “5 Fandom Friday”
