Culture Lust by Angela Carone

Calling All Costume Fans Going to Comic-Con International!

The biggest pop culture convention in the world is only 22 days away! Comic-Con International happens right here in our sunny backyard and KPBS is gearing up for some great coverage.  We'll inlcude videos of some of the panels, and cover television, gaming, comic books, graphic novels, artists, movies, and toys...all those wonderful toys!  One of the things that we'd like to do is follow someone through the process of designing and creating a costume for the annual Masquerade. If you live in San Diego and plan to enter the Masquerade, please contact us! (um, have you noticed that Comic-Con brings out the exclamation points in me?)

We are looking for a talented, creative individual who's willing to let KPBS record their costume journey. Ideally, this person will be competing in the Best Original Design or Most Beautiful category, but we'll consider anyone with an ambitious costume and a good story to tell. If you have any questions or would like to be considered as the subject for our Masquerade web feature and video, please email me at
