Convention season is upon us, my friends, and as the weather gets nicer here in the Capital Region, you may be looking for some fun events to attend or places to wear your cosplays. Well, look no further! Next weekend, April 27-28th is the Spring Saratoga Comic Con.
That’s right!! This weekend at the San Jose Convention Center the North Bay will be getting an amazing Stan Lee run Comic Con, probably the biggest event here in years for us geeks. Lilith will be hitting the floor on Saturday and hopes to get a boat load of amazing cosplay photos to share on our site, and enjoying the amazing line up this event has to offer.
Without further ado, here are some snaps from Campbell Con, the premiere event! It was quaint, cute, and a great place for community building. I’ve only been to a few cons so far, and this was a smaller one, but it had a lot more sense of community and camaraderie than the larger cons. It was also a great way to meet like minded creative people in the geek world. Hopefully they have another event next year!
Whats Up Nerds!
So if you are traveling to the Big City of New York this weekend for your annual pilgrimage to the New York Comic Con make sure that you take heed to the call of the Big Apple.

Hey there Evil Geeks! It’s just about time for the 2013 New York Comic Con and we’re getting everyone ramped up by going over our coverage from last year ahead the the big show this week. This post originally ran as two separate posts last year and it gives you some pointers on some of the things that will be fun at the show, as well as some of the stuff that will drive you bat-shit crazy, Thanks for reading and we hope to see you this week in Manhattan!
Greetings Evil Geekdom! As we get geared up for the 2013 NY Comic Con, we’re bringing you all kinds of helpful tips that we’ve accumulated over years and years of con attendance. This spot originally ran last year ahead of the 2012 NYCC, but the information is still relevant (although I think it may be time to overhaul the costumes uses in this game), so we’re bringing it back to you. See you guys in New York!!!
Hey now, Evil Geeks! If you want to check out a panel or maybe get an autograph from a special guest, it’s inevitable that you’re going to be spending some time waiting in a line which can get a little boring after a while. While waiting in line before the Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes “Jay & Silent Bob Get Old” podcast last year, we members of the Brotherhood came up with a great idea to kill some time while waiting in line: The Comic Con Cosplay Drinking Game! Of course, gameplay doesn’t have to be limited to line waiting situations, you can play anywhere in the con at any time. Disclaimer: I’m pretty sure the people running the show at the Javitz would frown upon we fine upstanding citizens, imbibing in demon juice during the con, so be sure to keep it on the down-low. Also, remember to drink responsibly, because with great alcoholic power, comes even greater gin-fueled responsibility. I really can’t stress the importance of responsibility when you’re getting mind-numbingly smashed.
