Ta-dah!! Red Dot Diva Unveils a New Brand Identity!

*DRUM ROLL and GLITTER*!


Red Dot Diva is thrilled to announce the launch of her new brand identity, with a new logo and blog banner!

The Red Dot Diva (RDD) blog began in July 2010 when pop-culture blogs were still relatively uncommon in Red Dot Island. Pop-culture news mainly flowed downstream from press agencies in the USA to the handful of printed newspapers and magazines here. This was prior to the recent boom of blockbuster superhero movies, and many of these media publications did not cover geeky comic book related news and personalities, like comic conventions, Free Comic Book Day, reviews of scifi/ fantasy shows, local/ regional comic book artists as well as cosplay personalities. It was uncommon to find such topics reported and discussed within the local context; it was even rarer when made from a female geek's perspective.

RDD aimed to fill that space, and in time, the blog has also expanded to cover entertainment and lifestyle related events, including local theatre, concerts, computer games and arts events.

The new branding, designed by illustrator Jessica Emmett, embodies the Red Dot Diva personality, and reflects a more vibrant and still eclectic approach to reporting on pop-culture and lifestyle. RDD also deepens its commitment to build awareness to local talent and events, and aims to provide a platform for thoughtful discussions in the pop-culture scene in a diva-tastically positive way.

Do flex your biceps in celebration, and RDD looks forward to your support for many more years to come!

Happy New Year! Geek Onward to 2016!

A quick thank you to followers, media/ PR contacts, readers, fellow nerds, geek bros + seestras, friends, frenemies, the Glam Blog Alliance and my Evil Twin for going along on a wild online/ offline ride with Red Dot Diva in 2015.

It has been a busy but supremely fun year.

Red Dot Diva knows she has not been blogging as much as I want to.

However, taking into consideration a heavier day job workload, and her bout of hospitalization/ convalescence and the awful Indonesian haze which caused havoc to her sinuses, she managed to post as much as she could.

Do check out constantly on her Instagram or Twitter feed or Facebook Page for mini photo logs of events, as these days Red Dot Diva often reports about events "on the go". She also occasionally live tweets about the TV shows or movies she is watching! So, do feel free to join in or comment :D

Red Dot Diva sends warm, *Flexy* and Happy New Year wishes to everyone.

Owner: unknown (contact me if you own this graphic image!)

PS: Red Dot Diva has no apologies for the torrent of Star Wars posts or tweets.

Also, May The Force Be With You!

or LLAP.

So Say We All.

Whichever you prefer. :D

Here's to more FUN Geeky Adventures in 2016!

Introducing VLogger and Digital Media Producer - Richy!

Last weekend's New York Comic Con 2013 was a whole lot of craziness and fun!

Red Dot Diva has so much to write and recap about the convention. She has already posted a few NYCC photos on the RDD Facebook page , so do check them out while she work on catching up with articles.

Now that she is safely home, Red Dot Diva is getting right back into this serious-glam thing called blogging.

First on the to-do list is to introduce an exciting collaboration with exuberant, articulate and not to mention, very cute, 21-year-old Richy from Chicago.

Richy is a pop-culture v-logger and digital media producer and he talks about TV shows, trailers, movies, games, and conventions on a regular basis. He considers "The Walking Dead", "Bones" and "Grey Anatomy" his top three favourite TV shows that on air currently, and thinks "Adventureland" is the worse movie he's ever seen. (It stars Kirsten Steward, so no argument there. :P ) Richy also edits and produces his own skits, namely one hilarious scare-thriller called "Home Alone".

Cosplayers at STGCC.. Meow.

Lolitas. Kitty cats. Streetfighters. Masks, lace, feathers... Aaaahh!

Mesh them altogether and one is probably in the midst of a flock of cosplayers.

Cosplay has gained a booming popularity in Red Dot Island in recent years. There has also been a growing number of cosplay competitions held in various local conventions and fairs. Previously, it was rare to see anyone unconscious enough to parade themselves in costumes, in very public places.

Red Dot Diva noted that cosplaying in this region is still the domain of those who are into anime and manga, or games. There is a smattering of comic/ scific cosplayers these days, but it is still the anime/ Lolita crowd that makes up the majority.

In her many years attending conventions overseas, Red Dot Diva has mostly seen cosplaying of other types of genres - from the mostly vampire-themed Buffy conventions to the fantasy-realm of the Lord of the Rings to the frenzied SDCC cosplayers - where almost anything from comic or pop-culture goes. There was even an Elvis Stormtrooper - so go figure!
