At PAX East 2015 we got a chance to interview and do a photo shoot of Cool By Proxy, who were working at the Warner Bros. booth for the game Infinite Crisis. That is why they are in cosplays of Zatanna and Green Lantern in two of their more rare and unique game skins — Arcane Zatanna and […]
Welcome to Indie Spotlight! Today we have a top tier candidate for ridiculously fun party games – Clash Cup Turbo! In essence, Clash Cup Turbo combines the crazy fast-paced physics of air hockey with arena-style combat, where players take control of an avatar with a paddle. Each player has their own goal zone, initially lined […]
One of the signs in the business world that a business sector has reached maturity is the steady growth of new startups in the market. The geek and nerd convention sector has been at that stage for a couple years now, and even we are jumping in on the bandwagon with our Cosplay And Photography […]
In his Reporter’s Notebook blog from PAX East 2015, Rodney Brown mentioned how he noticed that many relatively new cosplayers had impressive costumes, and having an experienced mentor was a common thread. This is somewhat the case in this cosplay of Oracle Zelda and Barbarian Link by experienced Lisa Lou Who and K-Wall’s Prop Shop, who was cosplaying at […]
Cosplayer Lamark “No Sleep” Ingram’s interpretation of one of Street Fighter‘s legendary combatants is amazing and epic. Check out these amazing photos of Lamark’s cosplay, taken by Willie Brown of Double Stomp Productions.
The first combo of photo shoot and video interview from PAX East 2015 is of a Californian who came all the way over to Boston to check out the largest gamer-focused convention in the country. Kohalu Cosplay nails the sultry poses of Morgana in the shoot, and talks about why he chose the character and how […]
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 […]

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 […]
If you browse through Tumblr, Facebook and meme-themed websites like 9GAG, most likely you will have come across this image: This image has set off a huge reaction all across the web. There have been jokes such as this one below: What has been the most interesting is the different comments that appear on Facebook […]
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!
