Impressive Rule 63 costumes. You wore Hawkeye well.08/11/2015
Andrea is the coolest. Enjoyed chatting with her on an online radio show about comics -- she's sharp and snarky... a great combo.26/10/2015
Oh please. Cosplayers and comic addicts are mentally ill. It's just as bad as a drug addiction. Maybe worse in some cases.
This woman thinks she can use her phony baloney credentials, which basically grow on trees nowadays, to rationalize her own delusions and the behavior of her ridiculous friends.
I've got news for you. If you're dress up like a 'super hero' or any other cartoon character, or find yourself cripplingly preoccupied with any form of fantasyfiction, you're basically insane.
Don't seek help, because you'll find some nutcase like this woman.
I really enjoyed that. A great look at what superheroes can mean to the world and why they are so popular. You just inspired this author to write her next piece ;20/07/2015
