Biweekly Book Review: Queen’s Shadow

I am a child of the ’90s. While I had seen the original Star Wars movies, it wasn’t until The Phantom Menace that I got to see a Star Wars story in theatres. It wasn’t until then that I became interested in reading a Star Wars book (my much loved and very battered copy ofContinue reading “Biweekly Book Review: Queen’s Shadow”

From Sand People to Doctors: An Examination of Middle Eastern Representation in the GFFA

*Reposted from SWRepMatters.com while the site undergoes maintenance* While watching the very first episode of The Mandalorian, a certain character caught my attention. “Baby Yoda”, you’re probably already thinking.

Happy New Year, Nerds! How were your holidays? Did you all see Rise of Skywalker? I did! And that’s all I’ll say on that because while I may be new to blogging I am not new to the internet… Anyway!

Whenever I go to a convention, or some kind of fan event, or even when I see people posting about them on social media, I always admire the cosplay.
