Anime Boston was held a few weeks ago in chilly late March, and our photography editor KBV Photography was in attendance, grabbing shots of the anime cosplay goodness. Not surprisingly, the immensely popular anime Kill La Kill was the focus of many of the cosplayers. Nudist Beach group shots, anyone?
The website GeeksareSexy has a great in depth write-up about the plans by a gang of current and former Emerson College students to make a movie about the Marauders, the gang of troublemakers at Howarts in the late 1970s that included James Potter and Sirius Black. The film “The Gathering Storm,” co-written and directed by […]
The arts and crafts supply chain Michaels Stores Inc. today revealed the potential scope of a data breach it first reported back in January, and it is a doozy. According to reports, as many as 3 million credit and debit card numbers may have been stolen from the chain, and its subsidiary, Aaron Brothers. According […]
At PAX East 2014, we interviewed Lisa Lou Who as she was cosplaying Officer Vi from the uber-popular game League of Legends! In our video, she talks about the game’s popularity and the difficulty of making giant robot hands. Below the interview, we have some more photos of her cosplay taken by the amazing FirstPerson Shooter!
At PAX East 2014 we interviewed Heroes of Cosplay, Crabcat Industries and The Nerdist’s Holly Conrad as she was cosplaying from the new Dragon Age: Inquisition video game! In our video, she talks about her crafting approach and her love of costuming. Below the interview, we have some more photos of her cosplay taken by the […]
PAX East 2014, held this past weekend at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, saw pretty big crowds all three days, but Saturday had the biggest crowd, and the most cosplayers. Partly that was because of Mass Effect cosplay meetups, League of Legends cosplay meetups, and a costume contest, the male winner of which was […]
On February 28th, Yaya Han wrote a post on her Facebook account that read: “Maybe if I made a FB page about my boobs some of you can separate the kind of comments you post here. I appreciate you all being here but sometimes I think some of you forget I am a human being […]
Suddenly and without warning, cosplayer facebook pages are disappearing! It seems as though anyone with the word ‘cosplay’ in their Facebook username has had their accounts deleted without explanation. Some theories hitting the news feed now are that facebook wants to concentrate cosplayer activities to fan pages only, but only time will tell. As of this […]
A few weeks ago, I was scrolling down my Twitter timeline when I stumbled upon what appeared to be a landmine of tweets regarding the finalists chosen for the Less Than Three professional gaming and cosplay group. The tweets fell into two categories – of the congratulatory and celebratory variety, and of the…well…not so celebratory […]
At Another Anime Convention 2012, I took the opportunity to interview Homestuck cosplayers about why they love their fandom. The reason why I did this is because I’ve been hearing grumbling from some cosplayers of how they can’t stand Homestuck fans. One, for example, shared on Facebook how he found Homestuck cosplayers “revolting.” I think […]
It must have been almost ten years ago when I was first introduced to the cosplay community by photographer extraordinaire Anna Fischer and since then I’ve been documenting cosplay culture through other websites and now with Nerd Caliber. In the beginning, once in a while, I would catch an odd remark made by a cosplayer […]
San Diego Comic Con is the biggest convention in the US, and I always look forward to seeing what amazing cosplays and cosplayers will be showcased there, either in photos or in video form. And most of those videos I see online tend to fall into two categories; either the cosplays are showcased to show […]
Friendzone Fiona is a well-known meme that started in 2011 that poked fun at a situation that most of the socially awkward have experienced at one time in their young lives: the dilemma of being in love with someone who only sees you as a friend, or worse, like a brother. Know Your Meme describes […]
If you opened this post thinking you were in for yet another diatribe about issues in the cosplay community, then tie yourself down to whatever chair you’re sitting in – because this is the remix. If you’re even a semi-active cosplayer with a social media presence, you’d have to be living under a rock to […]
I really hope the Maine Republican Party doesn’t find out about my history of playing Monopoly. They might think I enjoy putting people out of business. Whether we are Democrats, Republicans or Independents, we all know that it is very important that we elect good politicians that take issues head-on in a serious manner. Colleen […]
Our first collection of cosplay pictures from the New York Comic-Con 2012 is up! These are Friday’s pictures taken by photographer Rodney Brown. Stay tuned for more videos and photos of what we saw at NYCC 2012!
Mr. Harris, I will come right out and say it. I have an “effing” problem with what you have to say. You don’t know me and I only have a cursory knowledge of your work but much like you, I don’t give a crap and I’m gonna say it anyway. You might not be a misogynist […]
Features about health are very important to Nerd Caliber and we try every once in a while to publish an article that we hope to enlighten you to the benefits of exercise and eating right. However, whether you are underweight, overweight and any weight in between you are still wonderful. If you are plus-sized or […]
This is a heavy plea, the title was a trap to get your attention and it worked! Why though would I trick you? First, you should always expect deception and traps from me, but why Christopher Nolan and why Metal Gear Solid? Well maybe it’s the same reason why Joss Whedon had to direct the […]
Anime Festival Orlando 2012 had a lot of great cosplays and Ken AD Photography was there to capture some amazing pictures at one of Florida’s best conventions. Come back to Nerd Caliber everyday this week as we celebrate Ken AD’s work at AFO with a feature showcasing a particular cosplay!
The sun was shining and the skies were a brilliant shade of blue on Saturday July 21st 2012. The clouds floated by and the birds flew through the air, but the real excitement, for New England gamers anyway, could be found inside Game Underground in Framingham, Massachusetts. There Smash Brothers gamers from the area converged […]
