Are you ready for Otakon 2014?! Because we’re having not one, but TWO Assassin’s Creed meetups and photoshoots! All AC fans are welcome! From Master Assassins to Templar Lackeys, we want to see YOU at our gathering!


A gathering and group photoshoot for all cosplayers from Ubisoft’s popular Assassin’s Creed series! We will also be having a bit of unofficial fun with Pirate Shanties after the photos are done. NOTE: These photoshoots ARE officially scheduled with Otakon’s Cosplay Gatherings.


Friday at 5pm

Saturday at 7pm


The Indoor Fountains, both days. The fountains are located in the Charles Street Lobby, down the escalators.


Your hosts this year will be itsflowever and askshaunhastingssarcasmking! We will be cosplaying as Desmond and Shaun on Friday, and Mary Read and Edward Kenway on Saturday. Feel free to approach us at the con if you have any questions/comments/concerns; we don’t bite!


We have a Facebook Event!

We have a thread!

See you at Otakon, Assassini!

Hey guys! Come find me as Kidd on friday!! (I’ll visit on saturday but will not be dressed in Assassin’s Creed) Can’t wait to see everyone!

Fuck yeah, I’ll be there!!  ..I just need to finish Haytham’s damn coat….

I’ll also be Juno (again) one of those days, probably. :)  Can’t wait to see everyone this year!!

Also… anyone up for a harbor photoshoot, too?



Quite a few people requested some form of trait/personality generator, and here’s the result!  I wanted to keep it vague enough that the options could work for any universe, be it modern, fantasy, scifi, or anything else, so these are really just the basics. Remember that a character is much more than a list of traits, and this should only be used as a starting point– I tried to include a variety of things, but further development is definitely a must.

Could pair well with the gender and sexuality generator.

To Play: Click and drag each gif, or if that isn’t working/you’re on mobile, just take a screenshot of the whole thing (multiple screenshots may be required if you want more than one trait from each category).

Initial character:

honorable, good leader, intelligent

dishonest, greedy

losing loved ones, being forgotten

freedom, wealth

only child, has many friends, enjoys poetry


Will be interesting to mull over.



Chefchaouen, a small town in northern Morocco, has a rich history, beautiful natural surroundings and wonderful architecture, but what it’s most famous for are the striking and vivid blue walls of many of the buildings in its “old town” sector, or medina.

The maze-like medina sector, like those of most of the other towns in the area, features white-washed buildings with a fusion of Spanish and Moorish architecture. The brilliantly blue walls, however, seem to be unique to Chefchaouen. They are said to have been introduced to the town by Jewish refugees in 1930, who considered blue to symbolize the sky and heaven. The color caught on, and now many also believe that the blue walls serve to repel mosquitoes as well (mosquitoes dislike clear and moving water).

Whatever the reason, the town’s blue walls attract visitors who love to wander the town’s narrow streets and snap some beautiful photos. 





"Weird Al" Yankovic does it again with his newest parody "Word Crimes"

this is great.

I can finally enjoy this tune without Robin Thicke

Thank the gods for Weird Al

I have never heard the robin thicke song

so this song, forever and always, will be a weird al song for me. I won’t squander this privilege, everybody.

Dear Weird Al,

Bless you for two things:

- distancing this song from the original lyrics

- writing out so eloquently the feelings I have every day as I deal with customer emails

Bless you, sir. Bless you.

Love, Rin
