C2E2 2014 – The Anovos Booth

The Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo hit the Windy City again this past weekend, and ASM once again had a great time!  One of the booths we spent a lot of time at was that of Anovos.  When we had seen pictures appear that showed they had new Star Wars costumes, we knew we had to have a talk.  You see, here at ASM, we love costuming and we love Star Wars costumes.  We have costumes, we are members of the 501st Legion and Rebel Legion, and we have made many great friends through those organizations. So, now Anovos is going to make high-end Star

C2E2 2014 – The Valyrian Steel Booth

The Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo hit the Windy City again this past weekend, and ASM once again had a great time! We had no idea Valyrian Steel was going to exhibit at the show, which is odd seeing as we are huge “Game of Thrones” fans and pretty much follow everything they post on Facebook.  However, our lack of foreknowledge proved to give us quite the surprise when we walked past their booth on the way to get lunch and immediately were stopped in our tracks by all the pretties. On hand were their new Unsullied helm and Loras’ helm as well as their

Dark Horse SDCC Game of Thrones Stark Shield Plaque

When Dark Horse announced that they would make a small replica of HBO’s “Game of Thrones” Stark Shield for San Diego Comic-On 2013, we here at ASM knew we had to get one. Initially asking Matt Guzy of Awesome Toy Blog to be the procurer, we were then pleased to find out that HBO Shop was going to put a limited supply on their website the opening night of SDCC.  And by pleased we mean, “Holy crap they just tweeted that they put some up on their website I gotta get to my computer where’s my credit card RIGHT NOW HOLY CRAP!” Now,
