U the Magician
With over seven years of experience, U is no stranger to the world of magic nor hypnosis. Hailing from Rocky Mount, he has assembled all of his best tricks to bring around the convention scene, partnering frequently with Black Materia Inc. to bring the best of entertainment to their many con-goers.
The “yeah yeah ninja” is a two-time national weapons champion in Tae Kwon Do with Bo Staff and Triple Staff. He studied martial arts in many different disciplines such as Muay Thai, Kung Fu, Tae Kwon Do, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and Ineyan Kali.
Arthur Stump is a cosplayer & comedian for Spectrum Entertainment from Franklin County Virginia. He is best known for cosplaying Eric Cartman at every single convention he goes to because he doesn’t know how to sew & apparently loves dehydration & heat exhaustion. He is also known for never breaking character because, “Hey, when your costume is a woman’s jacket, a hat you bought of Amazon & gloves you stole from a trailer at work, you’ve got to put SOME work into it.” Arthur has been a guest at several conventions & won multiple cosplay awards for his outstanding performance as a fat, angry little boy from a rural mountain town in Colorado.
