First I’d like to thank all of you joining in on my new cosplay photobook indiegogo campaign. We have reached some goals including a bonus 4 pages as well as some free prints on top of fully funding this project. There will also be a Variant cover for The Loft Collectibles and Comics in Cheyenne Wyoming! I did a new fun summertime Powergirl in the pool photoshoot and….wait for it….. SDCC! Yes I will be signing at San Diego Comic con! I will be a guest at the Desert Wind Comics booth! But no lets not stop there, I will also have a booth at the BAMF music festival near the convention center where I have teamed up with the C4 charity movie cars. They will be bringing the Jurassic Park SUV for pics! I will also be a judge in their costume contest Friday night at 8 pm 🙂
Do you have the sk!llz to make the next AZ Powergirl print?

Did I ever tell you about the time I was radioactive? Probably not. Many moons ago I was feeling regularly ill. OK not ill per se, more like excruciating kryptonite dagger in the gut pain multiple times a day. After numerous sleepless nights and excessive deliberation I headed to… THE DOCTOR. I found him to be quite entertaining, however completely useless in the remedy of my immediate situation. After a lengthy conversation with various medical professionals it was determined that I most likely needed my gall bladder removed. Bladder’s a funny word, lol, but I digress. But before embarking on such drastic measures I was required to undergo one final test. The evening prior to Thanksgiving, I traveled far and wide (or 8 miles, no I did not see Eminem) to a dreary facility. The stench of industrial cleaners flowed throughout the many laboratories. White coats and latex hands occasionally peered out through the hallways. With the impending holiday so close you could taste the Butter Balls Basting (say that 5 times fast) this place was almost completely vacant. The time had finally come. I was to be injected with a radioactive tracer substance. For the next few hours I would be cocooned and alone surrounded by nothing but the screams of those that died there before me! OK maybe not that but it was really really loud. I mostly slept through it because hey who cares right? It’s just noise, it’s not like zombies or clowns. After this heinous torture I was informed that for the next 24 hours I would be…RADIOACTIVE!!! I couldn’t hold back the excitement! What would my superpowers be? And how would I maximize my 24 hours of superiority? In a flash my excitement and enthusiasm was stripped away as I was informed that I was to have no contact with children or the elderly. That’s it? Not very heroic if you ask me. On a positive note, Thanksgiving was around the corner. How could I use this to my advantage? Now I know what you’re thinking and no I wasn’t planning to poison the elderly or kill bratty kids. But, I could avoid them! No kiddie table for me! HA! And no creepy conversations about keeping the plastic utensils. For one brief moment, I stood back , watched as a spectator, at real life television. And do you know what I learned? I learned that the typical American Thanksgiving is just a shadow cast of any episode of The Walking Dead.
I was recently approached by the creators of Project Superwoman. This was SO COOL! I got to create a Dark Powergirl (Evil Superwoman or whatever they decide to call her). I love the costume and had the opportunity to play multiple characters including Powergirl of course.We did some green screen work so you will get to see me fly. I also did some bad ass fighting and some shit got destroyed. Oops. Then I get to play a mad scientist and fight some big dude and this is where my new badass Dark Powergirl comes into play. This won’t be out until spring but in the meantime they have some other video shorts with great girls and fun adventures to tide you over. Keep on the look out for sneak peaks of the filming on my facebook pages as well as Twitter, Tumbler and Instagram. I am AzPowergirl Everywhere. Also, You can get my new Dark PG print on my Storenvy and use promo code “BINGO” for a buy 2 get 1 free (Prints). http://183degree.storenvy.com/collections/183595-az-powergirl-prints/products/3876739-az-powergirl-superwoman-mkii-11×17-art-print
With the cosplay is not consent movement; I have a bit of a different view. I promote that nothing is consent except for consent itself. Regardless of whether or not someone (male or female) is in a costume or any other attire,they should not be exploited, antagonized, assaulted, bullied, etc.. I am a firm believer that empowering women should NOT be about belittleing men. I don’t advocate degrading, punishing, or oppressing men in the name of feminism. So in general I follow Bill and Ted’s motto “Be excellent to each other”. and I’ll get off my soap box now. lol
AND THE DRAGON COMES IN THE NIIIGHGHGHTTTT!!!! Here are some pics of me being soap boxie.
As I entered the museum I was first of all let in for FREE! That’s right FREE! Cause I’m ME! And that’s special. (OK fine they let everyone in for free but let’s not talk about that) I came across my number 1 fan! That’s right, the first fan ever made. Or one of them…whatever. They let me ride the Police Motorcycle and the sirens go WEE WOO WEE WOO! Of course I wore a helmet. Safety first. I found some cosplays waiting for me and tried some new looks. Did some work under the hood of a truck. perhaps I can fill it with Mexicans that will dig me a pool.
I feel like it’s been forever since I posted here. I have so much to tell! I was fortunate to be a guest at the Mesa Az stop of the Fireball Run. This is a great event to help locate missing children across the country and raise awareness of child abduction. After that event I headed out to El Paso. I had a great time at EPCon (El Paso Comicon). I did kind of feel like an outcast. all my cosplay and artist peeps were in Vegas. But the El Paso locals always treat me well and make me feel at home. I did my cowgirl cosplay as well as Powergirl and Jill Valentine. Has a little snafu and forgot my disk and chain but a trip to Walmart and I got things going again. Then it was off to Corpus Christi for Realmscon. This was primarily an anime show but I was more than welcome and my table faced the bay. It was so beautiful. I helped judge the cosplay contest and had a few panels. I did cosplay safety and the business of cosplay.I have a little down time to get some new content out and costumes made and stuf and stuff and more stuff. Did I mention that I met Grumpy Cat? Yea that happened. I also wrote an article about it for Geek News Network. And with NYCC here in a few days , and my inability to attend this year, Webble will have my exclusive Binary cospaint card as well as my Powergirl card. I believe these cards are free. So now i’m gonna give ya’ll some links and pics and a vieo of me doing the Hustle (or some resemblance of it)
