Mikomi Chan has been an avid costumed crusader since 2011. Since becoming involved in cosplay it has lead to her working in a maid cafe, being part of a convention staff, participating in cosplay contests, and leading panels across the country. Her cosplays have been featured in all manner of media including geek/pop culture websites, art exhibits, magazines, and television. Mikomi has also been modeling since 2008 in the fashion industry. When she discovered cosplay several years into her modeling career, she quickly figured out how to use her modeling experience to make her cosplay photographs more artistic. Modeling has helped Mikomi turn wearing a cosplay in a photo into her own form of artistic expression, often doing on location, themed shoots for each individual costume.
She decided to start up a small costuming business in 2013, and has been designing costumes for fellow cosplayers ever since. She loves applying her craftsmanship skills to help other people both be able to cosplay as well as teaching them how to create costumes of their own. She has made costumes for cosplayers throughout the US. When she is not working on her next cosplay, Mikomi can be found participating in various manner of geeky things, playing sports, but most importantly spending time with her husband and son.

Alpha Anime is a doujinshi group with one main goal: To Rule the world of anime by becoming the biggest thing to happen to doujin. Formed by and made up of otaku that span the globe, we have been called the "anarchists of the anime world". However, we see ourselves as liberators out to take anime back to what it truly is: anime; not Saturday morning cartoons. Meaning, the coyote may have taught us not run off a cliff, but anime taught us the meaning of friendship, honor, love and the real virtues of life...while added bonus using giant robots and magical girls. With original doujin, fanfic doujin, original prints, cosplayers, furries, a Pervert Army, a Yuri Cult, and mad minds washed over and over in anime goodness, we at Alpha Anime give this warning/promise to all: "It has begun!"

What started out as a solo project by Jason Doss, Square Therapy is now a three piece Electronic Rock band from Roanoke, VA. After Jason released the debut self-titled Square Therapy EP, he decided that he wanted to expand by adding two more members the group. Serita Bingaman on bass/keys, and his former band mate Donnie Sowash on guitar. Square Therapy uses multiple methods for composing, but the most notable would be the use of game boy’s, or better known as, “chiptune”. Square Therapy combines the use of a program called LSDJ for game boy, with sampling from NES sound fonts, guitars, bass, and finally mixed with FL Studio to create a solid rock composition inspired by retro game classics.
