Very pleased with how my son’s geektastic nursery turned out, so thought I’d make a post about it. When my partner and I first started planning it, we talked about doing a strict superhero theme. That changed during the process of picking the characters that we wanted to hang on the wall. We decided to go with characters we truly love, regardless of the fandom, rather than pick less-beloved characters just for the sake of fitting an artificially-created superhero theme. Thus, we ended up with fabulous drawings of Wonder Woman, the Ninth Doctor, Harry Potter, Captain Marvel (Carol Danvers), and Mr. Spock, commissioned from artist Jenny Stead. Jenny did an awesome job, and I highly recommend anyone looking for custom art to hit her up when she has commissions available.

Despite the mix of fandoms, the centerpiece of the room obviously is still superheroic — specifically, the design from Captain Marvel’s new uniform splashed across an entire wall. I couldn’t be happier with how the mural turned out (if you’re in or around Atlanta and need a mural for your home or office, I can’t say enough great things about Mimi’s Murals), and love the Captain Marvel emblem for several reasons.

First, it’s just a really damn cool design. Major props to Jamie McKelvie for turning out yet another flawless character design/re-design (and one that looks fabulous blown up to a 8x15 foot canvas.)

Second, Carol Danvers flat out rocks. I’ve only known Carol for a little while, starting with Kelly Sue DeConnick’s amazingly kickass Captain Marvel run, but in a brief period of time she’s managed to become one of my favorite characters ever.  She’s everything a hero should be: brave, selfless, kind, and loyal — but with enough vulnerability and flaws to make her relatable and courageous and oh-so-very human. I just love her. 

Third, I want my son to grow up knowing that he can, should, and will find women who deserve to be his heroes just as much as any man. Our society persists in sending a message that heroic women make acceptable role models for girls or other women, but not so much for boys or men. It’s bullshit and it needs to change. If creators keep making characters with the heroic spirit, emotional resonance, and all around badassedness of Carol Danvers, I am hopeful that one day it will.

AHHHHHHH!!! So GREAT!

This is the best :D

Attended NEW YORK COMIC CON this past weekend & had a blast!

It was a record year, with over 150,000 attendees, possibly 100% verifiable as our con passes have RFID tags that we had to scan in-and-out with. I sat in on the WOMEN IN MARVEL panel (BGSD!) and the BATMAN 75th Anniversary panel (Kevin Conroy!) got a lot of comics signed, duck faced (yes it is a verb now) with many of my most favourite people, ate at Shake Shack a lot, walked over 100 km and bought a lot of cool swag.

Didn’t take as many pictures as I usually do, as I was in cosplay myself (What If? Star-lord Gamora! Red pleather! Ack!) but here are some of the snaps I was able to take.

Pretty Deadly - Kelsey B. (Alice) @ChampionofNone (Johnny) @PrettySuited (Ginny) 

Steampunk Wonder Woman - Lizmabel Puello - @LizmabelP

Femme!Winter Soldier (aristargirl on instagram) & Black Widow 

Thor - @PepperMonster

Misfit - @RedConfession

Storm - @nelsrandomlife

Ms. Marvel (@obiren13) with Madame Tussauds’ Hawkeye 

I didn’t get everyone’s names, sorry but please pipe up and send me a message if the cosplayer in these pix = you! Thanks!

Who else attended? What was your favourite panel / cosplayer / meet and greet / memorable moment ?

Made a request the other day for panels of people punching Loki, hoping for some to reblog with pictures, but the awesome comic-loki did one better by sending me enough images for a set! 

Hah :)

In his spare time, Peter Parker has taken to making custom action figures of all of the superheroes he interacts with as Spider-Man. from the Thing to Squirrel Girl, and even Sandman once he reformed. He gives each figure to its’ respective hero as a gift, with the only condition being that he or she take a picture with it for his portfolio. (Captain Marvel found hers awesome, and making it with his own hands earned Spidey a kiss.) To date, the only one to dislike his figure was Iron Man, because the armor he based it on was 26 generations ago. Tony now has a standing order for an updated figure every six months.

I love this one!Aside: I knew a fella who made custom action figures of young players on the local junior hockey team. The kids who received the action figure were thrilled to bits!
