Who the fuck cares where you went to school or where you work? The question is: Is your everyday experience good, healthy, beautiful? Because I have to tell you, while it might be cool to work for a company like Google, Apple, or The New Yorker, if your job is stupid, stressful and your boss is an asshole, there is nothing good or prestigious about that. While it might seem right to go to a school like Berkeley, if classes are overcrowded and students are nervous, anxious, religious zealots from Orange County, are you sure you want to go there? What’s good about that? To believe in prestige is to privilege abstract, collective impression over palpable, daily experience. To which I say: fuck prestige. Do what serves your everyday vitality.

With Costoberfest kicked off to a great start, we bring you our first Costoberfest Spotlight on Jaycee Cosplay!
Jaycee discovered cosplay about four years ago after being introduced to the convention scene by her boyfriend. Modifying pieces and working with experienced friends, Jaycee has created an expansive wardrobe of costumes, including a few Marvel, which you can see above!
Growing up on the cartoons, Jaycee is now catching on her comics, with her favorite Marvel characters being Jean Grey and Tony Stark! Plus, she loves to geek out for original art at convention and full-suit Iron Man cosplayers! Plus Jaycee is super excited to see all the cosplayers and costumers at New York Comic Con next weekend!
