This past weekend was Animefest! It was totally fun and I got a bunch of awesome costume pics to share. (Way too much to do in way too little time is why I had to skip the usual Sunday and Monday posts. Wah!)



I loved that he was able to get the two swans for the backside! Lol! (Ack, I know the anime but the brain is not firing! Dang it! Has Luffy the Pirate0



One mean Queen of Hearts~!



Awesome Loki and Hawkeye. Loki's staff even glowed. And Hawkeye had the cool quiver too!



Here's the staff. Totally awesome.



Mario! And, uhm, didn't notice the lady till later. Doh!



Two of the vendors had brought Pachinko with them! This is the Evangelion Pachinko machine.



A super awesome Assassin's Creed costume. 



This killed me. If you're a Fan of Dr. Slump by Toriyama, you'll get the joke. Heh heh. (Creator of Dragonball) Arale, the girl hero (and android) of the comedy series as Pooh. Too funny.



A table filled with ONLY Dr Who stuff. Drool....



Loved the half and half look. Forgot to ask him if it was patterned after the Star Trek episode of something else.



Life sized Pokemon! Woot!



Loved this cowboy outfit. The big gun was very cool.



Card Captor Sakura!



Dr. Doofenschmirtz battling Agent P! Go Phineas and Ferb!



Look at the size of that bazooka thing!




This Elven princess costume was a thing of utter awesomeness. Look at all the detail!



Knight from a game whose name escapes me. Argh! With their pets! Too cute.



This owl costume was super awesome. On the back she even has tail feathers. So adorable!



She looked awesome in this. Wish I'd taken a better pic!



On Sunday morning. She had way too much energy, but was so cute!



He even lipsynched to music. Hee!



An adorable Gara my daughter found. As well as some homemade lip balm called Peary Tentacle. hee! And look at the awesome baggie she put it in! From Starrydance Cosmetics~!



Captain America like you've never seen him before. 



Loved the sword!




Podcaster doing some interviews in artist alley.

Unveiling the Fantastic



(2015) Fantasy

The King is Dead! Long Live the Undead King!

"What are you implying?"

The magister glided forward and scrunched down beside him.

"That in order to bathe, you must first actually get into the bath."


(2014) Urban Fantasy

It took everything from her, except revenge!

The muscles in my right arm jerked from tension as I tried to make it move and it resisted. A shrill scream inside my head insisted I didn't want to do this. That if I did, there'd be no way to take it back. "I...I'm afraid."


(2011) Young Adult – Fantasy

Which is worse…the monster without or within?


Home—family—the two things he would never have, the two things forever denied him…because of her.

Anger welled inside him, the heat of it suffusing him to the core, gurgling with seething emotions the total opposite of the coolness splashing down from the fountain nearby. Before he realized what he was doing, Jarrin stepped inside the gazebo.

(2007) Young Adult – Fantasy
“Harry Potter meets Dragon Riders of Pern”


“Do you need any help?” she asked. “Just tell me what you want me to do. If you prefer, I’m sure I can round up at least a few people to come over and give you a hand.”

Kel slowly shook his head. “It’s all right. Thanks anyway.” His voice lowered to where she almost couldn’t hear it. “This is all part of my punishment.’

She frowned, not understanding what he meant. “Punishment?”

Kel cocked his head in Clarence’s direction. In a flash, she understood. None of this was an accident. Clarence had landed there deliberately, hoping to make Kel pay for all he went through in the past month. She shook her head, not wanting to believe this, but what the dragon said next took any doubts right out of her head.

(2008) Young Adult – Fantasy
“To save the world she must DIE! Or must she?”


Panic and fear filled with utter helplessness made her dizzy. She knew what would be done with her, she knew what they planned. But there was nothing she could do to stop any of it.

Sharp gasps echoed in her ears as she felt the room’s cold air caress the Eye.

“You were right. She is the one.”

(2002) Adult/YA – Japanese Fantasy Adventure
“The Last Samurai meets Pirates of the Caribbean”


Laying the blade on the floor before him, Toshi parted his kimono until his stomach lay exposed. He tucked his sleeves beneath his legs to hold him upright if he should falter. Ignoring Asano, he took up the blade. His shoulder flared with pain and he tried not to flinch, as he grabbed the blade with both hands. He turned the wakizashi until its sharp point was aimed at his belly, the residence of his soul.

(2004) Adult/YA – Fantasy Mystery
“He tried to forget his past, but his past wouldn’t forget him”


Torren took a step back a sudden shudder racking through him. It was as if he’d never left, as if the boy he’d been would be coming back-though the one who’d loved this room and all these things was long, long dead. That boy died when he’d watched his father’s blood pour forth from his mouth, the end of a sword protruding from his abdomen. That boy died when he survived while everyone else lay dead.
