Ep. 019 - Cosplay BBQ's

Cosplay Barbecues and Picnics are a rare and fun treat for the summer. Listen to this fun group of cosplayers who love the sun and having parties at the park. There is also bonus charity work!

That moment right before VFire got attacked by WASPS!

It's also nice to meet up with friends you already have and catch up.

Solo Shadows as Kirisama, Amanda Panda cosplay as Yoosung,
Kiwi Shampoo as Riko, and Lima Bean Bro as Mari
You don;t have to be in cosplay wither. You can just meet with like minded nerds and maybe play a card game or two.

Podcast Ep. 003 - Nihon Matsuri and the Cosplay Judges

This is our first live episode with a live audience... of about 5 people, but it still counts! Pannon and VFire are joined by Rennagade and Tatsue Cosplay as judges for the Nihon Matsuri Cosplay contest. Huzzah for guest episodes! (EDIT: Episode has been updated with bloopers at the end.)


The Japanese Festival, Nihon Matsuri, celebrates Japanese culture from old to new traditions and activities. It is a really fun experience and incredibly educational as it shows how much the Japanese community has had an effect on downtown Salt Lake City.
