Each summer in recent years, I have participated in parades with Hal-Con, Halifax’s sci-fi,fantasy & gaming convention run completely by much-too-dedicated volunteers. One of these parades is our Pride Parade, and I always come up with some special edition cosplay for it.

A few years back, I got the idea for a pink Star Trek: The Next Generation uniform, with each pip representing a colour in the rainbow flag. I made the buttons large so it would be visible from a little far away, given this was a parade and not intimate convention settings where people are constantly close to you to see the details. I did it despite not having a neck big enough fo hold them all on the front right side. And while six pips is more than the Star Trek rank and file would allow, I believe, let me make it clear the six was not meant as superiority. I just couldn’t go around choosing 4 of the 6 colours on the flag, ya know???

My idea wasn’t executed in the best of fashion a few years back, but I got a better version this time around. Fortunately for me, a professional photographer name Shaun Simpson in Halifax was able to get a couple of great shots of it. Even more fortunately, I didn’t look bad in the photos, either. Thanks so much, Shaun! Check out the fabulous entire album Shaun got of the Pride Parade and associated events to see how fun things were this year!

I should find out how I can get this to George Takei so he can see it. I wonder if he would approve. :)

Marvel recently changed the gender of their Thor character to female, creating what I call Thorette. Thor will still be there wield his battle axe instead of hammer so female Thor needs a different name as far as I’m concerned.

Then they changed the race of their Captain America character with a new black person taking up the shield, creating what I call Captain Afro-America. If you’re gonna be courting a new racial audience, you should be politically correct about it as far as I’m concerned.

There’s rumours Iron Man might be next. To that end, may I propose Bi-ron Man, who shoots both ways and will appeal to yet another audience discriminated against, the LGBTQUIC2SAPHO community.

Moving On Day

You know how people have Moving Day, when they move from one place to another? Well, I have a concept I call “Moving On” Day, when I move on from anything in life I need to, and metaphorically move from one “space” to another.

What does anything in life include?

What does moving on from involve?

How do you plan Moving On Day?

The new female ThorMarvel recently announced they would change the gender of their Thor character from male to female to woo more female readers. That was a shocker for me, but not for the reasons you might think.
