HalloweenCostumes.com Zombie School Girl Review

Halloween is next month and if you’re like me, you’ve been thinking about your next costume since last year. Last year I was Luigi and this year I will be a Zombie School Girl! The costume was provided by HalloweenCostumes.com. They have an enormous amount of costumes ranging from infants to adults and a bunch of great geek themed costumes as well.

Now us geeks like playing dress up so we don’t need to wait until October 31st like everyone else to throw on a cape or Vader helmet. So if you can’t make your costume for the next con, I recommend buying it from Halloween Costumes, I’m sure they have something to satisfy your cosplay craving.

First off it took me literally days to decide on a costume to review because there were so many I liked. I’ve done cute and “sexy” costumes before but this year I wanted to switch things up and get the Zombie School Girl costume. I love the undead and it was about time I became one and the Zombie School Girl Costume wanted my brains.

My Zombie School Girl costume came in the mail and I immediately tried it on and it fit perfectly. I threw on some makeshift zombie makeup and took some pics, but no smiling because zombies don’t smile! I never had a school uniform so I couldn’t have made the costume myself at home, and even if I did I don’t think it would look nearly as good. The costume came with a ripped tie, a plaid skirt. But the best part was the charcoal gray jacket with attached shirt equipped with blood stains, ripped and frayed on the edges and even a gross rubber bloody gash! When Halloween comes around I’ll probably make it extra school girly and get some knee-high stockings, mary jane shoes and fake blood.

I recommend you head over to HalloweenCostumes.com for your costume and cosplay needs for the next convention or Halloween Party. They ship quickly and have a flat rate of $4.99 and have a great sale section which it sure beats the fighting crowds at costume stores during Halloween season.

Disclosure – I was provided the Zombie School Girl costume for a review, however, all thoughts an opinions are my own and I wasn’t paid for this post.  Thank you HalloweenCostumes.com for providing the costume for this review!

NYCC & NYAF 2010: Funimation Panel

I sat in on the FUNimation Panel on Friday Oct. 8th which was pretty much just a bunch of clips and trailers for shows that have already aired but are coming to DVD soon.  So yeah… it wasn’t that big of a deal.  When it comes to anime I am extremely picky so it’s hard for me to see an anime I really like and keep up with it, but I do want to check out Eden of the East and Corpse Bride. Below are some of the shows they discussed and their DVD release dates.


Hetalia: Axis Powers

DVD Season 2- 10/12/10- “Hetalia a webcomic, later adapted as a manga and an anime series, by Hidekaz Himaruya.  The series presents an allegorical interpretation of political and historic events, particularly of the World War II era, in which the various countries are represented by anthropomorphic characters (wiki).”

I also hear some people say it is racists.  I haven’t watched it yet but I hear it’s a matter of opinion.  I haven’t watched this show but I did get the voice actors to sign some Hetalia stuff and I was wearing my TARDIS shirt that day and me and one of the voice actors started gushing about David Tennant and he said he might have to opportunity to work with him and I told him to give David a kiss for me when he sees him! :)


Corpse Princess/Shikabane Hime

It is already released on DVD-  I want to watch this, even though the only reason may be because it has to do with zombies.  I talked about it previously during Zombie Week check it out here.

Eden of the East

DVD 10/19/10- I want to watch this one, it reminds me of Bourne Identity with a twist and a whole lot of yen.

For more information on the FUNimation Panel check out Japanator.

NYCC & NYAF 2010

This past weekend, from October 8-10, was New York Comic Con and Anime Festival. I attended the entire weekend and had a blast.  There was tons cosplay, costumes, great panels, long lines and of course bad smells.  This week I’ll be giving you my recap on the good, bad and the geeky… oh wait that was the entire weekend!

I had a press pass which allowed me in a few hours before everyone else on Friday to check out the con and get some gameplay in before the crowd was let loose which was pretty cool.  The highlight for me was The Walking Dead Panel, this isn’t just because I love zombies, but a majority (if not all) of NYCC seemed to be left overs from San Diego Comic Con and E3.  Basically, most of what was there wasn’t new and exclusive but The Walking Dead creators and cast showed us “exclusive” clips and the panel was great.  I also got the comic signed by a few of them!  Oh and also I saw Stan Effing Lee three times and just about exploded into a million pieces!

Enjoy this mashup video I did of the con and a slideshow below.  The music played in the beginning of the video is parody of “Ridin’ Solo” by Jason Darulo by MC Chris now the new and improved “Han Solo” version, which I did a post on earlier today.

*I apologize for the shaky camera and video quality, I am clearly no Spielberg*

The little girl at the end was just too cute, and really good, at the Michael Jackson Experience.
