Damn It Mina!!! with Minasmols

We finally got around to getting Mina her own solo episode. And I am ecstatic that we did! Mina has been a fantastic cosplayer to get to know over the last year. The quality of her hand crafted costumes improves with each new venture. And on top of that, Mina NEVER back down from a new challenge. You will hear the passion behind her experiences in the local events. And I truly it hope that it inspires you all as well.

Every Friend is Greg!!! Claire's Closet Cosplay

I'm sorry about missing the episode last week, but I can't leave y'all hangin for 2 weeks in a row. This week's guest is Claire's Closet Cosplay! Claire has been in the Utah local cosplay community for some time now, but has recently moved back to Texas to further increase her cosplaying skills and attain other goals. As you will hear, Claire has a quick wit and strong personality to accompany the creativity that she employs.

As an immense fan of the game "World of Warcraft", Claire uses her knowledge of the game and that passion to enhance the costumes that she creates from the game. And as you will hear at the end of the episode, Claire uses her lovely voice to bring life to the characters he loves so much.

These Delicious Ribs!!! with Atom Bomb Body

With this being the Cracked Brain Cosfit month, I think it's fitting to have a representative of the fitness community be on an episode. Jasmine Elliott, or what she has become known to many Atom Bomb Body, joins me on the Podcast. Jasmine has become an example of hard work and diligence. 

Unsatisfied with a regular "9-5" job, Jasmine invested herself fully into modeling and fitness. Since then, she has been able to compete in many body building competitions. During this time as well, Jasmine has developed a fondness of body paint modeling and cosplay. Using the creativity from her love of gaming and the results from determined training; she has been able to bring the characters that she loves so much to true life.

Window Tentacles!!! with TinyTeaCos & SommerTimeIsTheBest

Time for some more chaotic and meandering fun! And who better to have on than TinyTeaCos and SommerTimeIsTheBest. This time we at least stayed on topic for a good portion of the podcast. If you didn't listen to the last time these talented women were on the podcast, I highly encourage you to go and start there. These two put there heart and soul into each cosplay that they do. Yet, all that hard work would not be complete unless they also through in some personality to go along with that, and personality is a trait that these two have in ample supply.

What's That Username Again!?! with George Alcoser

I think its about time we had a BONUS EPISODE!!! And who better to have on as a guest than our exquisite shadowcast performer, George Alcoser. If you remember from the last time that George was on the Podcast, he is a part of a local theatre group that performs in the style of Shadow Cast performances. Shadow cast is a style where the film version of the production plays behind the live version simultaneously. The live performers have the difficulty of remaining in-sync with the film, never detracting from the film being played, but also must bring a creative and alternate performance that goes hand in hand with what's being played behind them.

The performing group that George is a part of is Cosplay Productions. Cosplay Productions, is a fantastic group of cosplay performers that throw their all into every aspect of the performance. Being skilled cosplayers, gives them an understanding of the costuming and props that accompany the performance. In addition, the performing aspect requires them to portray their characters to the fullest.

In addition to Cosplay Productions, George is also a now experienced karaoke jockey. Black Out Entertainment is the company George performs as a KJ for during the week. With the unrelenting energy that comes naturally, George enlivens The Ice Haus to a fun, raucous degree.
