Arisia 2018

Arisia 2018 Cosplay Showcase Photo

I had an amazing time at Arisia this past weekend. Even though I was only there for a single day, I got the chance to make two videos I’m very happy with for Nerd Caliber!

How Would You Beat Batman? – Arisia 2018 was a lot of fun to film, I got to walk around with Chris Doherty from “Quest for Screen Accuracy” and ask a bunch of cosplayers how they would beat Batman. There’s quite a few funny responses in the video, but my personal favorites are tied between the answer that Joker and Harley gave (I felt it was so very accurate to their characters) and the response Aquaman gave (because his buddy, Batman, was right next to him).

Arisia 2018 Cosplay Showcase was the most fun to edit but the most stressful to create. Filming had felt awkward at first, I didn’t have a lot of options of where I could shoot so it meant that every time I asked someone for a shot there would be a ton of people passing by. So I had a lot of people walking through my shots or stopping us to ask the cosplayer for a photo, which is totally not anyone’s fault or anything like that, but it definitely made the entire process a bit more stressful. Luckily the cosplayers I met were extremely kind and patient about the process, I’m very glad I could feature all of them in a video like this, and I really hope they enjoy it!

Patch Notes!

My gaming news articles are up on Nerd Caliber! I never thought I’d be writing articles, I’m horribly out of practice, but it makes me very excited to see people liking what I report. And I have to thank Rodney Brown who gave me a very generous amount of help with creating this series. He even made the awesome name for the series: “Patch Notes!”

I’m working twice as hard on every one, so please leave a comment on Nerd Caliber and let me know what you want to hear more about!

CAPE was great this year! It was so awesome to meet so many amazing cosplayers and photographers. The panels were also very informative, the panelists were able to talk to the audience so easily! Look forward to when I finish editing the panels I filmed at this convention, I’ll be posting them as they go up!
