Con*Quest: The Con Adventure Journal
While at NYCC, I came across a fantastic new tool for convention goers: Con*Quest, a con adventure journal. The journal, a successful Kickstarter project, is a way to keep all of your autographs, sketches, prints, business cards, and photos in one place. It’s like a scrapbook or smash book for geeks. […]

Geek Fashion: Utility Belts
Batman may not be the first person that comes to mind when looking for a fashion icon, but he’s done a few things right. Having the amount of money he has helps, of course, but the thing I like best about him is his belt. Utility belts are the […]
