I really dig vinyl collectibles. I don’t collect them, but I can appreciate the style and art of it. So, November 9th I attended the Designer Con (or Dcon as the cool kids call it) event at the Pasadena Convention Center. Dcon is a convention that celebrates vinyl figures, toys, plush and more. A lot of the people exhibiting are creative individuals, not necessarily companies. People who are expressing their creativity through their hobby, which makes for some amazing pieces of work.

We live in a blameless society. One in which if you get called out for doing something stupid, your next move is to try and lay blame elsewhere. That is exactly what is happening right now as a spokesman for The Robots Pajamas website decided to derogatorily tweet a comment about a prolific cosplayer’s body.

When it was brought to attention, Vincent of The Robots Pajamas and his friends decided to go on the aggressive with their defense and name calling.
