Mockingbird pics

I made this Mockingbird leotard for Jen months ago and wanted to wait for final pictures before showing it off.

I was so happy to see that Jen got the chance to wear her Mockingbird costume to San Diego Comic Con International. With the Dex Starr rage kitty that Jill brought + Jen's Mockingbird, I guess I really was there in spirit!

Success at SD Comic Con International

I've been somewhat depressed and jealous that I'm not at San Diego Comic Con with everyone, but I'm definitely there in spirit. I'm loving the hell out of Twitter & Facebook right now where people are live blogging their exploits.

I'm also quite proud to have at least had something go to SDCC in my place. I made the suit for The Nerdy Bird's rage kitty, Dex Starr. Apparently NB & Dex got such a great reception that she's been interviewed, talked to one of our favorite writers Geoff Johns (the one responsible for the red lantern corps) and he even tweeted about her & Dex!

If you're not familiar with The Nerdy Bird's work (where the hell have you been?), she's my counterpart at GEN, covering DC where I cover Marvel. The two of us together are a force to be reckoned with. Fangirls from Jersey - look out!

First Black Miss England Crowned

The First Black Miss England was crowned in London on Monday night. Twenty year old Rachel Christie took the crown at London’s Metropole Hilton Hotel beating out 14 other finalists. During the pageant Christie won the Helen E Cosmetic Award which guaranteed her a spot in the top 15.

Her crowning does not come without controversy however. Viewers were given a chance to call in their votes for the winner. One of the finalists, Zoey Samale received 2,013 votes. Rachel Christie only received 9. The viewer vote was not the deciding factor however and the judges ultimately picked her as the winner leaving some voters outraged.

The new Miss England is an athlete that competes in heptatathlons and specializes in the 400 meters. She is also the niece of the “most decorated” Olympic British athlete, Linford Christie and models in her part-time. Christie will compete in the Miss World Competition in South Africa later this year.

It’s nice to see that the Black beauty is being recognized worldwide. [Source]

Comic Book Drive for the Troops

I'm appearing at the Little Falls, NJ Street Fair on Main Street as Wonder Woman at the New Moon Comics booth. 12-3. Come see me & bring your camera!

Plus, bring any comics you'd like to donate to the soldiers overseas. NMC is shelling out all the money for shipping to send our troops some entertainment. What better way to spend the 4th?
