Cosplay on Display at Comic-Con 2012 

July 14, 2012
The star power came out in San Diego, as cosplayers outfits included nods towards My Little Pony Friendship is Magic, Game of Thrones, Chef Vader, Spaceballs Barf, Homestuck, The Venture Brothers, a never-nude Tobia Fünke still seeking his Blue Man Group, and the always-popular gender bent slave Leia. We also stopped by Spin and IHEARTCOMIX show to check out Andrew W.K. party hard. All photos by Shannon Cottrell.

  • Felton: Touring the Redwoods
    Blue skies meet redwood canopies in the mountain town of Felton, located just north of Santa Cruz on Highway 9. Once a bustling logging community, the town is now a mix of mellow locals and serene wilderness. Visitors can enjoy the redwoods in nearby Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park and splash in swimming holes in the San Lorenzo River. For a bite to eat stop by Rocky’s Cafe for fruit-laden pancakes, barbeque at the Cowboy Bar & Grill and poolside burgers at the Trout Farm Inn. Other stops worth checking out include Roaring Camp Railroads, the Mount Hermon zip line tour, and the educational Bigfoot Discovery Museum. For beer or cocktails a log cabin bar has you covered.
