Disturbing Information About Books…

Disturbing Information About Books…

I have loved to read since I was a very small child. My parents read to me until I outgrew their pace, voraciously devouring stories so fast they couldn’t keep up. As such, I have also been a lover of books. Even in my tiny single bedroom apartment, I have books in every room and on every possible surface. I can hardly imagine going a week without opening (or at least listening to) a good book.

Alicia Cañas Zañartu (1901-2002)
Art by Siamesa (tumblr, deviantart)
In 1935, Alicia Cañas Zañartu was elected mayor of Providencia, a suburb of Santiago, Chile.  This was the first time in Chilean history a woman was elected to public office and the first time a woman was elected mayor of any Latin American city.  At the time, Chilean women were able to vote in municipal elections only, full suffrage did not come until 1949.
Alicia’s major achievement during her two terms as mayor was the remodeling Providencia.  Under Alicia’s leadership, parks were build, avenues were expanded, and the sewer system was updated.  Inspired by her Parisian childhood, Alicia commissioned the construction of Mercado Municipal de Providencia, a European-style public market.  
Shortly before her death at the age of 100, Alicia was given a medal by the city and a plaza was renamed in her honor.

May the Force be with you and may your cookie jar never be empty.

These awesome Star Wars-themed sugar cookies were made by Jedi Master Baker Jessica at Compassionate Cake, a vegan bakery located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. All of the geektastic cookie decorating is done by hand and possibly some Jedi mind trickery as well.

Darrien Hunt, a person of colour and a part of the cosplay community, was shot dead by police for walking around with a toy sword. http://www.dailydot.com/news/darrien-hunt-shot-by-police-while-cosplaying/
If anyone going to New York Comic Con would like to join me, I’ll be wearing a black ribbon on the sleeve of my cosplay each of the four days. It’s not much, but I figure it’s at least something that we as a community can do to show solidarity.
If anyone has any other ideas, please feel free to share them.

In case you dunno what a tsumu-tsumu set is (and in case you missed the Kirby one, which is right here), it’s a set of stackable mini-figurines. The Pikachu set will include 10 Pikachus and 9 electrical parts, while the Snorlax set will include 10 Snorlaxes (I hope that’s the way to spell it!) and 9 .. whatever those things are (sorry!)

Wednesday Cosplay - The Cosplay Friendly Batgirl

Wednesday Cosplay – The Cosplay Friendly Batgirl

This week’s featured cosplay article is a little different. I wanted to take a moment to talk about an interesting occurrence in the world where comic design and fandom meet. Several months ago, Cameron Stewart and Brenden Fletcher were announced as the new creative team for DC Comic’s Batgirl.

Shortly thereafter, the new Batgirl redesign was released on the internet. You can take a look:
