A Kickstarter For A Three-Day Wizard School LARP Made $90,000 In 20 Minutes

Magischola

Should you ever doubt that humanity has a dire and implacable need to pretend to be wizards who go to magic school, consider this: When New World Magischola launched on Kickstarter at 7:00 PM yesterday with the promise of letting people live out that fantasy next summer in Virginia, it had an initial goal of $35,000. At 7:21 PM, it had just rounded $90,000.

The campaign is set to fund a three-day live-action roleplaying session next summer in Virginia, allowing backers to attend classes, cast spells, solve magical mysteries and --- if you're willing to shell out the cash for a premium experience --- even join a secret society with its own special subplot. Also, there will be a breakfast buffet, so I'm gonna need $450, thanks in advance.

Best Cosplay Ever (This Week): Korra, Jem, Luke Cage, Lara Croft and More

korra

Although cosplay has been present for decades within the comics, anime, and sci-fi/fantasy fandoms, social media has played an integral role in the thriving communities of costuming that exist, such as Cosplay.com and the Superhero Costuming Forum. Over the years, the cosplay community has evolved into a creative outlet for many fans to establish and showcase some impressive feats of homemade disguise, craftsmanship, and sartorial superheroics at conventions.

In honor of the caped crusaders of the convention scene, ComicsAlliance has created Best Cosplay Ever (This Week), an ongoing collection of some of the most impeccable, creative, and clever costumes that we’ve discovered and assembled into a super-showcase of pure fan-devoted talent.

No Leia Haters: Why Retiring the Slave Bikini From ‘Star Wars’ is Excellent News

Leia1

According to Facebook comments by artist J. Scott Campbell, Marvel and its parent company Disney are phasing out the "Slave Leia" costume from their merchandising and publications. If the reports are true, the move suggests that Disney is stepping away with the most degrading canon representation of one of Star Wars' few female characters in an effort to broaden the appeal of the franchise to include more women and girls. The metal bikini and elf shoes could soon be a thing of the past.

And to this I say: it's about frickin' time.
