Perennial stylebomb and vampiric up-and-comer, Jubilation Lee might have gone goth at the beach but can never truly leave behind her West Coast colour spirit. But sleek black is only a perfect background for a firework medley of yellows and pinks, so let’s serve it up loud and proud.
Persona 2 makes me want to lie down and cry, which means it’s probably on my cosplay bucket list of 90′s golden era PSX JRPGs and I like it a whole lot.
Heather and I have been talking about a Persona 2 group since the dawn of video game time, and we were gonna make it happen or die trying. I love these stupid games so much, and it killed me that I haven’t been able to pull it off yet because I spent the last billion years of my life trying to (unsuccesfully) do Eikichi Mishima’s dumb wig instead. So when she mentioned that a few of her buddies were getting a group together for Katsucon, I whispered hell yea to the heavens and ironed creases into my pretty boy antagonist bestie pants and switched to Jun Kurosu.
Needless to say, a huge heartshaped thank you to all my cosplay buddies who welcomed me into this group — it means a lot to me that this finally happened, and I only wish we could have had more time on The Other Side together!!

We’ll return to your regularly scheduled posts in a little bit but we just wanted to say how absolutely gutted we both are to hear about the passing of Star Wars author Aaron Allston. He wrote some of our favorite books and was a wonderful man who we both had the pleasure of meeting at multiple conventions. We could never say anything but good things about him and we are fortunate to have had the chance to have met and talked with him.
Rest In Peace, good sir.
In case you didn’t know, your esteemed editors work for SHIELD in their spare time (and every year at Dragon*Con) so it only makes sense that we’d come to this eventually. Every SHIELD Agent knows that the key to surviving a briefing by Nick Fury is to accessorize appropriately. Harness, aviators, and eagles everywhere are absolutely standard issue.
If you’re looking to get the SHIELD feel by color alone then just remember that the combination of either black and white or navy and white is golden.
And the aviators. Don’t forget the aviators.
