Ask a Muppet
The talented Holly Conrad and Jessica Merizan have their own show on The Nerdist channel where they usually teach cosplay tips or other DIY projects. This time around they had the opportunity to learn how to make puppets from Julie Zobel of the Jim Henson Creature Shop. No fair!! But really, it's pretty awesome and I'm super jealous and they're hilarious. Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?Read More
When I found out I was on a panel set for 9 p.m. Friday night of New York Comic Con I figured it would be the panelists and ten of our friends. Much to my surprise, it was standing room only to hear psychologists Robin Rosenberg and Andrea Letamendi and cosplayers Holly Conrad, Bill Doran, and yours truly talk about the psychology behind cosplay and cosplayers. Moderator Jenna Busch helped lead us through some interesting statistics on the people who do it, how much time and money they spend on their costumes, and the reactions of those outside the geek community. Thanks to Lawrence Brenner for videotaping the hour-long panel! Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?Read More
