Taiyou Con 2017 Review

Taiyou Con 2017 Review We had a lot of fun last year at Taiyou Con and this year it looked like it was going to get even better! If you are not familiar with Taiyou Con, it is a convention focused on anime and Japanese culture. They tend to bring a number of awesome Japanese entertainers to meet fans and preform! They also tend to bring a number of geeky guests as well, for example this year they ...

Food Anyone who has read our reviews knows that food is always on our minds when we hit up conventions due to the simple f...

Review: Kikori Con 2016

Review: Kikori Con 2016 Hey guys! It’s Heartless Aquarius here! Luckily, I was able to cover Kikori Con, which is the last anime convention in Arizona for 2016. This year passed by so fast!

Food If you have some cash, food will not be a problem! Th...

MCM London Comic Con Review 2016

MCM London Comic Con Review 2016 London’s MCM Comic Con is by far of the UK’s biggest comic cons, attracting cosplayers and fans from all around. This was my third time visiting the Excel centre for the con and the first time going on a Friday. I have to say, as with most cons with a three day weekend, visiting on a Friday will usually mean a few things. 1) It’s usually less crow...

Fan Fest 2016 Review

Fanfest 2016 Review As most folks know in Arizona, Phoenix Comicon is by far the greatest comic book convention every year. It made many con goers sad when it’s time came and went then we had nothing but 12 long months to wait before the next event. However, when Fan Fest rolled out a few years ago, this changed! It was originally held in the harsh Arizona winter where geeks would travel thr...

Feature: Keen Halloween

Feature: Keen Halloween Ahhhh Halloween, it’s without a doubt my favorite event of the year. Most of the time when I walk down the streets with my Luchador mask, I get nothing but odd looks and comments. However, on Halloween it’s welcomed with open arms! You can understand my excitement for Keen Halloween held by the folks who give us Phoenix Comicon and Fan Fest! One of the best aspe...

Review: Saboten 2016

Review: Saboten 2016 Last year I got to attend Saboten for the first time ever. Prior to that convention, I had heard wonderful tales about how much fun everyone always had and when I went myself, the stories rang true! You can read last year’s review of Saboten here! While I did have a great time, my biggest complaints were in regards to food and vendor hall size. Had they fixed just one of...

Review: Game On Expo 2016

Review: Game On Expo 2016 Game On Expo held in the Mesa, Arizona Convention Center is one of my all time favorite conventions in the valley. While it may not be the largest convention in our sunny state, it has charm with it’s focus on all things video games which is a great break up from the typical comic book and anime conventions. Last year we had the chance to go to it’s first ever...

London Anime and Gaming Con Review 2016

London Anime and Gaming Con Review 2016 When I first saw this Con being advertised on my Facebook page, I was a little hesitant as to whether I should apply. First and foremost I want to cover as many Cons in the UK as I can for The Geek Lyfe, however, those who live in the south of England will know the absolute horror that is Southern Rail at the moment and will also know they don’t charge...

Every year we all look forward to the big headliners, cosplay debuts, new products sold by vendors, panels, and so much more! 2016 was hyped up like any past Comicon, however it did face it’s own series of challenges with record breaking heat and no major ...
