It’s the story of Octavia Leander as she embarks upon a mission to aid a war-plagued village, and the people and obstacles she meets along her journey by dirigible. Octavia is immediately engaging, her healing magics fascinating, and her determination is refreshing. An orphan after her […]

Boston Comic Con 2014 Costume Contest Video!

Posted  September 12, 2014  by  Rodney Brown

I admit I have been lax about getting my photos from the 2014 Boston Comic Con Costume Contest posted (mainly due to lighting and color problems) but those same problems (and sound issues on top of it) didn’t stop Emmanuel from creating a 10+ minute video of the amazing cosplayers that entered. Check out the […]

The Saturday craziness continues from DragonCon 2014, with the second cosplay gallery from me, FirstPerson Shooter.
