Whitney Tai calls herself an “alternative/pop” artist, but I tell her that she is selling herself short.  She is a very talented singer whoms songs’ music is fresh and very modern.  However, when you strip it away, you are left with very talented vocals reminiscent of songs sung in smoky R&B lounges or sophisticated soirees with cognac , cigars, and smoking jackets.  Together, they create a laid back, yet refreshing synergy enjoyable by anyone with romance or angst in their heart.  Oh yeah, she’s also a rhythmic pop force of nature when she wants to be, too.  ‘With some of the best pipes in the business, combined with a unique style worthy of sold out venues or any runway, Whitney Tai is destined to be an eternal icon because she already is one in her own right now.

What can I say about Almost Normal Comics to truly translate how cool they are?  Almost Normal Comics is a publishing house that has the most unique comic titles I have seen in a long time.  The ideas that run through this house is like back in the 90’s during the height of independent and indie title comics like “Milk & Cheese,” “Love and Rockets,” “Spore  Whores,” “Bondage Fairies,” and the vivid titles by R. Crumb.  Be sure to Like their Facebook publisher page for access to many more original titles, and updates to their lineups as they happen.

This is the official homepage of Hatcore, makers of fleece hats for your fandom needs!  Hatcore started out offering a vast selection of already-made hats and custom-made a hats.  They have since expanded their catalogue to include hoodies, plushies, ears, and TAILS!  Yup!  You wanna  be a Tanoochi?  Now you can!  They even have something that I never seen ANYONE sell:  BRAIN SLUGS!!!  I would love to see a line of drooling people with these on them at the next con!

Vivid Vision is a Canadian photographer, costumer, and cosplayer of which I have tremendous respect for.  I like that Vivid Vision does not over-treat her pictures like Saffels Photography, whom’s pictures either end up looking over-blurred with brightening and mist effects, or faded.  Vivid Vision also doesn’t over-contrast/gamma either.  Vivid Vision has a nice touch to her photography, an eye for angles, and gives coaching to her subjects that urges them to look at the camera in a way that gives a good sense of intimacy in the photos.  Vivid Vision has remade herself from the cosplayer that often cosplayed cute and spunky characters, to the much sexier themed cosplayer that she is today.  That being said, my favourite of Vivid Vision is still that of Kiki from “Kiki’s Delivery Service.” I think it captures the person Vivid Vision is, best of all:  friendly, kind, and truly good at heart.
