Wow. Just wow. Hopefully we’ve all gotten the therapy we needed after this week’s Season 7 premiere of The Walking Dead. I know I needed to get some tears out, and The Talking Dead really is a good way to process the horrors that sometimes overwhelm us on this show (so check it out if you haven’t already). But it feels good to be back in the writing seat, and it feels good to get this all out to share and discuss with you Evil Geeks. Spoilers galore to follow as I give you my take on the episode and what I am hoping for from the show.
Let’s rewind back to Valentine’s Day. A time where many women blow money on lingerie for their significant others, to when men spend big bucks on jewelry, flowers, and giant stuffed animals. I celebrated by ordering a Captain Phasma suit.
I shit you not, Evil Geeks. I had the option to review and wear plus sized lingerie, but chose to be Captain Phasma instead. Anyway…it’s long past February so this review and the photoshoot is super overdue, but better late than never, right friends?
With Halloween right around the corner, I would highly recommend this Phasma costume to my other Star Wars: The Force Awakens loving peeps. It’s made of foam so you don’t have the discomfort and immobility caused by full armored suits (believe me, real molded armor is not fun or ideal for Halloween drinking or comfort in general). You won’t be able to pee in real armor, but this costume is velcro back so it makes it MEGA easy and functional. It’s so comfortable, it’s comparable to one of those onesie pajamas. Yet, instead of looking cute and cuddly, you look metal and badass. The helmet is one of my favorite things about this costume as well. It comes in two pieces so you can easily adjust it to the shape of your own head. It’s padded inside for extra comfort/to absorb the inevitable sweat that occurs when you wear masks. It’s made of plastic, but not the super thin or cheap kind of plastic. This helmet is actually sturdy and looks amazing. I also really love the cape. It’s made to drape just right over one shoulder and looks fierce. The only issues I had with this costume were that it doesn’t come with gloves (I’m wearing my own in this photo), and that there’s a bit of a gap where the helmet ends and the neckline begins, which is a quick and easy fix– turtleneck under-armour does the trick.
You can easily modify this costume to higher quality as well — my long term goal for this outfit is to use clear Worbla thermoplastic to make a hard outer shell armor to go over the suit! Also, to make the fabric shinier/more metallic. I’ll give this costume a 4.5/5!

What’s going down, Evil Geeks! We’ve been in a New York Comic Con recovery coma for the last week, but we’re finally getting around to posting our drunken ramblings from the event. Big Evil, C-Mart, and Undies of Wondy have a late night chat and talk about their shifting attitudes towards the con atmosphere. Is it a case of geeks aging out of the con’s demographic? Or has the cultural war come to a shocking conclusion, with the geeks ceding their once hallowed playground to mainstream America?

Anyone who is thinking about making a sequel (or reboot) to an old movie or TV show, I have 4 words for you……..Ash vs. Evil Dead. This was my thought at the end of the first season. This show gave me everything that made me love the originals, but packaged with an ongoing story format that the movies did not have. Bruce Campbell’s return as Ash 30 years later is fantastic. Ash’s new friends, Kelly (Dana DeLorenzo) and Pablo (Ray Santiago), are a great addition. If it is true that that audience should be left wanting more, than Ash vs Evil Dead delivered on all fronts.
Season 2 Episode 1 has now aired and there is no way of denying, this show is still awesome. The laughs, the scares, the blood: all there in abundance. The folks working on this show know their stuff. They have continued to deliver all of the things that the fans love about the original films, while continuing to to add new themes and story to keep the interest.
Again, to anyone who is looking to revive an old movie or TV franchise, take a look. Bruce Campbell and company have figured out how to do this right. If you are a fan of the Evil Dead movies, this is a must see!
