The Oddities Flea Market was held over the weekend of Rocktober 5th and 6th. As DarkestGoth Girl 2019, I decided to attend and take in the activities. What a fascinating find. Right dead smack in the middle of LA, a few blocks from “Skid Row”, is a diamond in the haystack called “The Globe Theater.”
In 1913, The Globe Theater, a performing arts center, opened it’s doors and now is the oldest functioning theater on Downtown LA’s Broadway Street. This 27,000 square foot historic landmark is full of plush grandeur and is true to it’s time (forget finding an elevator, use the stairs).
DGM Spokemodel 2019, Karen St. Claire, Gets a Backstage Pass from Paul Stanley. The meet and greet took place at Barnes and Noble in Los Angeles and they spoke briefly about her recording studio experience involving Paul through the nature of cause and effect. She chuckled at his remark.
Con season is upon us! The roar of the crowd, the delight of a well-constructed cosplay, the giddy rush of panels and contests, all combine for the exhilarating con weekend that lives on in legend. C2E2 is one of the primere Midwest conventions. Standing for Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo, C2E2 boasted attendance of around 80,000 people last year. This year, for the first time, model and best friend Kitty Hagen and I, Amaranth...

Special thanks to Kahler, Peavey, and NAMM for bringing it all together! “Who the f*ck is Neil Zlozower?” Lol!
Gencon, the best four days of gaming. My home turf. It feels funny calling it that, when only last year I brought you an article as my experience as a Gencon virgin. That’s one of the magical things about Gencon, the moment you get there, you feel a sense of kinship, of belonging. The air buzzes with geekery and fandom, and you feel home.
Attack of the Ninjas is an event presented by horrorcore rap group Twiztid and their independent record label, Majik Ninja Entertainment. This year it consisted of two days’ worth (last year was just one) of live performances from all of the artists on the label, including two different headlining sets from the demented duo themselves. This being my very first large Juggalo-related event, as I have not attended a Gathering, I was very curious what was in store.
The Comic Con: An event held in many different times and places where us nerds can gather and feel cool. It’s also a pretty good place for those of us who are in our thirties and above to suffer some extreme nostalgia, finding comics we used to read as kids, and toys and game systems we used to play. The Lexington Comic & Toy Convention this year embodied it all perferctly.
I’m a Con virgin. I never considered myself nerdy enough to attend any Comic or whatever conventions, despite being a huge sucker for cosplay. So, when Darkest Goth asked me to cover the Lexington ScareFest X VIP party, I was only mildly excited at first.
This was a very big year for The ScareFest Horror and Paranormal Convention. Not only were they getting one of the biggest names in horror and fandom (Robert Englund!), but they were celebrating their ten year anniversary. So the pressure was on to make this a very unforgettable year, not only for the attendees but also the guests and vendors.
Simply put, Gencon was stunning. I never expected the scope of the place. Everywhere I looked, there was something new to discover. I originally hadn’t planned a cosplay for the first day, but that idea was quickly abandoned–which inadvertently led to this shoot and article about exploring Gen Con for their first time.
