Sydney Sexpo 16′

  Out of all the conventions we have visited, nothing prepared us for a new addition to an adult lifestyle convention: Cosplay.

Superhero Coffins…too soon?

In the world of superheroes, two things are a constant: one, the moment writers of comics or movies determine that a character is boring or they have nowhere else for the story to go with them, they kill them off.
