Its all over now (sheds tears of sadness)!!! New York Comic Con has come & gone but the photos we shall all remember. I was only able to attend for one day but it was good. Over the years NYCC has changed drastically for the great, bad & missed reasons. I have been attending the con/festival since before they added the Anime Festival & somehow made it disappear. It was originally for comic book lovers then added in a big dose of pop culture then BOOM!!! Once upon a time NYCC was not advertised pretty much anywhere, and if you just knew about it, you were in the know and if you went, it was awesome. At that time there were much more breathing/walking room, more video games,better panels, anime in more than one place, an extremely wide variety of cosplay etc…. There is so much I miss but from where they took they have added. Presenting: SUPER WEEK. Along with NYCC (which is now 4 days long: more things for people to miss if they don’t get a 4 day pass which is hard ass hell due to the mass amount of pass thieves & that stupid ass que they have invented ) Super Week is extra panels, parties & after parties, tv/movie viewings, meet the creators and even concerts. This gives everyone who couldn’t score a pass the option to still participate in all the awesomeness the con has to offer. Next year I plan on taking off the whole weekend to get the full effect of NYCC & Super Week like I used to do, as well as cosplay (oh how I miss this too). Below are a few pics but check out the rest HERE & enjoy!!!
So this post is the only one so far that will actually be on time. Yay me!!! (Im working in getting better at this) As of today Samsung is releasing its new wearable the Samsung Gear S2. This new sexy (yes it’s sexy) watch I’m in 2 different style the sport & the classic. At a party held by Refinery 29 & Samsung at its Soho studio, the watch was on full display along with drinks, finger foods, music and a photo booth. The new watch runs on android where so it is now able to be used on any android phone unlike it’s previous counter parts. They are also giving you the option to have a 3G data connection (only with the sport model) so you can use sim card, making that watch a full fledged phone. The classic model will be bluetooth only.Hopefully has a longer distance than normal which was about 30 feet. One of its coolest is feature is the rotating dial on top which let you select app with just a turn to the right or a turn to the left. Just like most watches you’ll be able to make phone calls, respond to text messages and view emails & of course there will be an app store for watch dedicated applications. Over all the watch is a fun new gadget for tech lovers ranging at a price point from 299 to 400 (depending on which one you get). Will I get it? Probably not because the way my pockets to setup…..lol Plus I already have a Gear 2 with a built in camera, so that new watch won’t see my wrist anytime soon unless someone wants to buy it for me *Hint Hint*.
You felt the vibe and the heat as soon as you walked into the show room (it was hot in there). Beautiful girls dawned in bright colors, monochrome, light fabrics, and fans 😆 (ok it’s was really hot in there). This collection was very feminine with dresses & ruffles & pretty colors. (NOTE: I love going to fashion week and enjoy just like looking at clothes and imagining that one day I can afford to wear the really expensive stuff.) Since I am far from a fashion expert and love photographing it, I leave all of the word play up to the love Shannon Moody, who is the creator & blogger of Fashion Nexus. She provided my with the access to the shows I attended on her behalf. So I shall leave the photos below & go check out her blog you beautiful people.
I needed time to recover from all of the fun I had recently. My first music festival was MAD DECENT BLOCK PARTY over the weekend. Over the span of two days in a row (Saturday & Sunday) I jumped, skipped, and danced all over MCU Stadium in Coney Island. Saturday’s (which was my favorite) contained a line up of: 4B, Cashmere Cat & Trippy Turtle, Gents & Jawns, Vic Mensa, Die Antwood & Major Lazer. Everyone put on a great so from beginning to end. Cashmere Cat & Trippy Turtle had everyone on a groove train and I loooooved it. Die Antwood was full of energy with mask, backup dancers & a few butt check flashing & Vic Mensa had the crowd jumping through his whole set. But the main event of the night was Major Lazer. There were lights, smoke, ribbons, fire & of course lazers! Flags were waving, music was non-stop, shirts off, topless girls & probably a lot more I missed because I was dancing lol. Sunday’s line up consisted of :Grandtheft, Party Favor,Tyler The Creator, Knife Party & Jack U . Sadly I got there late because I needed the extra sleep partying the night before I missed a few djs but I got there for the three main events. I previously seen Tyler The Creator in December and it was amazing. Not only did he put on a great show he also but he got so many girl to show there boobs….Oh glorious Tyler I bow to you!!! Knife Party got they party started. His beats had the shufflers bring out there fancy foot work. Now Jack U (a combo of Skrillex & Diplo) shut the stadium down!!! If you were in the stands you were dancing, if you were on the floor your were dancing, even if you were behind a hot dog cart you were dancing. They pulled out all the stops, playing their classic, bringing out special guest CL singing “Dr.Pepper” and ending the night off with their recent hit taking over the air waves “Where are you now”. It was amazeballs & Mad Decent Block Party will be taking my money next year!!! I had no “official” camera so check out my phone footage Here!!! lol Enjoy 🙂
