Suzanne Johnson, an IT consultant from Atlanta, decided she wanted to be a zombie. Not an actual zombie, of course. She showed no signs of wanting to consume the living, or that she considered brains a delicacy. No, the fan of AMC's "Walking Dead," simply wanted to dress up as a zombie, and she wanted her costume to look good.
The idea sprouted while talking with coworkers and fellow fans of the show about what to wear while going to Dragon*Con. One of her coworkers then suggested going to the Zombie Prom, an undead themed party held Friday night of the convention.
She purchased a wedding gown as the base of her costume stating, "It's okay to be a zombie prom queen, but a zombie bride trumps a zombie prom queen." FULL POST
When you are passionate about a franchise like “Star Wars” or “Batman” you can find ways to show your fandom in every part of your life: clothes, coffee cups, mouse pads, etc.
Mimoco has tapped into that with their line of Mimobot USB drives – available in several styles to meet many differing fandoms. Mimoco's drives are some of the coolest out there, and they just released a new series licensed from Lucasfilm and DC Comics at San Diego Comic-Con.
As the price of flash drives have plummeted, vanity and promotional versions have flourished. In 2007 Mimoco sent CNN.com one of their original, limited edition drives featuring Han Solo. I remember thinking how cool it was, but that it was way too expensive – priced at $70 for the 1gb version. The current line run about $30 for the 4 Gb version – which is far more approachable for your average consumer. FULL POST
