The Violet Vixen Corset Dress Review

Located in Austin, Texas The Violet Vixen  "provides showgirls, burlesque dancers, fashionistas, steampunkers, goth lovers and aspiring starlets with flavor rich corsets just for fun or daily wear." The website isn't limited to corsets but also sells shoes, waist trainers, clothing for men and more. The Violet Vixen ships throughout the U.S. and Internationally. This review is for their Black Rose Corset Dress. Currently priced at $134.00 the dress is made to order in 12-16 business days. A corset liner for increased comfort can be added for an additional $15. The dress is also available in a brown corset, white and red. A listing for the item to order can be found HERE. After selecting this stunning dress for review, it was time to do something creative with it. After being asked to be a part of a Punk X-Men cosplay group for Dragoncon 2015, I decided to use the Black Rose dress for Punk Rogue. Additions to creating this look include a wig from ebay, gloves from a local party store, fishnets and black boots. For my makeup, I watched the following tutorial on You Tube which can be found HERE

There is a Latina Disney Princess. You Just Forgot (Or Didn't Know)

For years now the Latino Community has expressed their desire for a Latina Disney Princess to be added to the famed Disney brand. In 2012 Disney announced that their new television show Sofia the First, would feature their very first Hispanic Princess. However after Sofia's character design was revealed, controversy broke out all over the internet. Many claimed that Sofia, with her pale skin and blue eyes, was not Latin enough. Disney later released a statement saying that  the producer for the show "misspoke" and Sofia was not Hispanic after all. Flash forward to 2015 where Disney revealed that a princess of Latin heritage would be added to the show. Princess Elena of Avalor has been named  the very first Latina Princess but what many people forget is that there all ready is a Princess of Hispanic origin.

Comic Creators VS Cosplayers

"Todays heads up. If you’re a Cosplay personality, please don’t send me a friend request. If you’re a convention promoter and you’re building your show around cosplay events and mega multiple media guest don’t invite me. You bring nothing of value to the shows, and if you’re a promoter pushing cosplay as your main attraction you’re not helping the industry or comics market. Thank you." ~Pat Broderick, Artist (Batman: Year Three, Green Lantern, Swamp Thing).
