Tia sat down with Stephanie Hans to discuss her book DIE, how to be a great cover artist, and fashion in comics.
Kara and Tia join Mike this week for a true schooling on Nerd Fashion: what to wear to a con, how to express your nerdiness, what makeup is legit, and how accessories are the best way to subtly acknowledge that you’re into a fandom.
This week’s episode was recorded on August 21st, 2016. Tia and Kate join Mike for a discussion all about superhero fashion and costumes. It’s a long winding path that leads to some discussion about the male-gaze, cosplayers, and Mike being a completely lazy comic nerd by the end of the episode. Enjoy!
