Stan Lee's Comikaze Presents: Totally Geektastic 80's Dance Party

San Diego Comic Con 2012 is nearly upon us! We are getting the gear together and the scheduling down for the panels, meeting the guests, setting up interviews, which exclusives to buy, and having some fun at parties. We have attended San Diego Comic Con for quite a few years now, but until last year, we never attended the SDCC parties. Thanks to Comikaze Expo who began their venture into a new Pop Culture convention last year, we were able to attend their amazing party. Comikaze Expo knows how to throw a party, which had many great surprise guests that came through. Being huge Guild fans, we had the chance to meet some of the cast members, Doug Jones, Rick Fox, and of course, Mr. Stan Lee. 


Comikaze Expo was created by Regina Carpinelli, and siblings Fabiano and Mario Carpinelli who grew up in the Pop Culture world and are fans of comics, horror, sci-fi, anime, and gaming. Comikaze Expo was created because Los Angeles needed a convention for nerds, geeks, pop culture fans like us. There have been many conventions in the LA area, but they never were able to have the large scale like San Diego Comic Con. Many artists, writers, and creators live in the Los Angeles area and I always have wondered why this could never happen. Thanks to the creation of Comikaze Expo, 2011 would change that with the Invasion in Los Angeles, where over 35,000 attendees would create something new and create history. Stan Lee and Elvira, Cassandra Peterson, would be a huge presence at Comikaze Expo and draw many fans to their booths. Both superstars would now help Comikaze Expo forever in becoming something even larger and it is now known as Stan Lee's Comikaze Expo


2011 was a great year with the big Comikaze Expo party at SDCC, and 2012 will be even more promising and exciting with Stan Lee's Comikaze presenting: Totally Geektastic 80's Dance Party.

Last year was just the first year, so I can only imagine the second being even bigger! We wonder who will be walking through the doors as surprise celebrity guests?

Stan Lee and his Comikaze Crew do not enjoy doing things without the fans! This year, instead of being like all those snobby industry parties at Comic-Con, we are shaking things up and EVERYONE IS INVITED! 

This is what is going down:
80's school hip-hop icon, Egyptian Lover, will be bringing totally radical mixes. As well as DJ Gigi and The Beat Junkies, who will be hitting the tables. Smart Patrol, a totally fantastical Devo tribute band will be whipping you good! There will also be special performances by DAZZLER and Jem and The Holograms! And finally, there will be a break dance competition. GET INTO IT, and try not to have your mind blown.

Everyone who shows up in a cosplay costume will get a door prize. Yeah, we do not lie. Best costume gets $500 cash! There will be drink specials ALL NIGHT, so try a Sun Drop cocktail, or a Monster and vodka!

Zenescope will be showing off some videos of the New Grimm Fairy Tales animated feature, Geekscape.net will be handling the gossip, and Doron Ofir of Popular Productions will be bringing some massive scandals.

Cost is only $15 for all this live awesomeness! No one throws a party like Stan Lee's Comikaze. So hop on the free shuttle to Spin and kick it with us 'til 5am, because our doors do NOT close!

So click this link to get your tickets now! Bring your pals because you never know what we are gonna make happen: http://fla.vor.us/wafform.aspx?_act=eventview&_pky=130582

The Angry Koala Gear crew is definitely looking forward to this party. 80's music?? May show for our age, but we grew up in the 80's, which was an amazing decade in music, dance, and entertainment. I am a huge fan of hip hop and I am thankful for growing up in the beginning of it with the graffiti, music, dj's, break dancing and pop locking and even the movies (of course, I wish a few of them would be remade to give them a little better acting). This was the time of new wave music and why not celebrate with Smart Patrol who will "Whip It Good". The party goes live with the World Famous Beat Junkies spinning!! There is going to be a break dancing competition, which I wish I could still do, but the age has caught up to me on being flexible. I do hear though that I still have some pop locking skills (Mr. DJ, please play some Planet Rock). One of the artists I loved hearing during the break dancing days is one of the originators, Egyptian Lover. When I heard he was coming through, the childhood memories kicked in.



Egyptian Lover will definitely get the party jumping with Egypt Egypt, I Need a Freak, And My Beat Goes Boom, and many more. Looking forward to hearing who else may be coming through as the musical guests! I will definitely be dusting off the Adidas and I wonder if I can bring my cardboard with me.

One of our favorite things about attending comic cons of course is the cosplayers in their amazing creativity of designing their costumes. We will be looking forward to the Costume Contest. Zenescope Entertainment is also coming through with premiering their New Grimm Fairy Tales Animated series videos! We had the opportunity to attend the panel at Wondercon, where Zenescope would present the Kickstarter that would launch this project and bring the Grimm Fairy Tales Animated series to life!

We are excited and ready for San Diego Comic Con 2012 and we definitely look forward to seeing and meeting you at Stan Lee's Comikaze: Totally Geektastic 80's Dance Party.
