Feasts, Festivals, and More Weekend Events Worth Sticking Around Boston
Boston events
If you can’t find a way to get out of town for the long weekend to avoid the gigantic mess that is moving day in Boston, make the best of it with some pretty sweet theater, arts, and music events. Or just stroll around and make up a September 1st drinking game: Moving truck stuck under a bridge on Storrow? Take a shot. Recent grad fighting with his mom because he wants to assert his independence but also has no earthly idea how to hang up curtains? Finish your drink. You get the idea. More

Commonwealth Shakespeare Company’s annual production of Shakespeare on the Common wrapped up last night, but you probably missed it even though you promised to go this year. That’s OK, there’s plenty more Shakespeare and other theatre on tap for this week for you to plan on going to but probably just go to the bar instead because how great are bars?

Fashion
You may know Nicoletta Lyons and the Big Pink Truck that brings her Lola's Urban Vintage fashion to the street. Yet, in addition to wining accolades as an accessories designer, Nicoletta is an accomplished visual artist. For the month of August, her wall sculptures and digital collages are showcased at a pop-up show at Harvard Square's Kulturez. The opening reception was a celebration of Nicoletta's art, bringing street wear, horned masks, and Narragansett beer together for a great party. Be sure to stop at The Garage to see the display, and pick up a fresh "Finisher" tank top for the last days of summer.

The Best Dressed Cosplayers of Boston Comic Con 2014
Photos
This past weekend, fans of all kinds showed up to the Seaport World Trade Center, many in their sartorial splendor, to celebrate Boston Comic Con 2014. Throughout the course of the event, which featured Sean Astin, Jason Momoa of "Game of Thrones," and Darryl "DMC" McDaniels among many more special guests, one of the best parts was catching a glimpse of our city's cosplayers (the art of building elaborate costumes to represent specific characters, for those who aren't familiar with the term). We were able to catch up with the creators of some of our favorite costumes and gain a dose of their inspiration behind them.

Photos: Riding With the MBTA-themed Boston Bike Party
Photos
On Friday night, August 8, hordes of spirited bikers took to Copley Square for an evening group ride around the city. As is custom with any of this summer's Boston Bike Parties, the gathering had a theme as well, with riders decked out in MBTA costumes of all shapes, sizes, and designs. We were there to send the spoked-out party animals on their merry way, but not before catching up with some of the party's craziest characters.

Captain America has a great butt, but we're still all pretty bummed that Laverne Cox isn't playing Wonder Woman, and Loki is a bad guy despite his sympathetic qualities (plus he definitely stars in a lot of pretty wild fanfiction that my editor won’t let me link to). Until recently, that was the bulk of what I knew about comics. My scope was quite obviously limited to whatever fandoms managed to spill across my Tumblr dashboard. More
