Hooked On Phoenix Cosplay was Zatanna at New York Comic Con 2014 and Alex Valderana of Alex Valderana Photography was able to get these great photos of her for us. You can also check her out as a fantastic Angela, with an excellent Gamora, in the Friday NYCC gallery from FirstPerson Shooter.
A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of interviewing Avatar: The Last Airbender’s and Legend of Korra’s Creators and Executive Producers Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko about the end of Korra and the future of the Airbender universe. Nerd Caliber: You guys have come such a long way. How do you feel about Korra […]
Readers of USAToday this morning were treated with the first reveal of the upcoming new look for Marvel Comics’ Spider-Woman. The reason why Jessica Drew will soon be wearing a new, more practical costume than her sprayed-on spandex I believe is blatant pandering for marketing purposes — but for all the right reasons. When I first […]
Alex Valderana of Alex Valderana Photography has another set for us from New York Comic Con, this time of Jaycee Cosplay as Power Girl! There was even a guest appearance by a Lady Blackhawk and a Huntress!
Gracious reader, forgive me in advance if this article seems opinionated. We all have opinions, and as a black woman — living in soon-to-be 2015 America — no, I don’t think we live in a “post racial society” nor should anyone else. Hopefully many of you are up to speed on the recent events involving […]
Emma Lipschutz is a model and actor who we were fortunate enough to get these amazing photos of at New York Comic Con 2014. Her Catwoman cosplay was shot by Alex Valderana of Alex Valderana Photography.
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!
