Inadvisable Child Costume of the Year

Clever Girl

Brand’s daughter is a big fan of Minecraft, and this year insisted on being a Creeper, the terrifying exploding menaces that spawn throughout the game.

If I had a nickel for every time I opened the door of my fort to find a Creeper standing there, I’d have — well, I wouldn’t have many nickels because I quickly learned to build a second story window from which I could see my front door and shoot any horrible monsters with bows and arrows before I left for the day.

I… just hope nobody flipped out and grabbed their 8-bit swords to do battle upon seeing her costume, that’s all.

Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
