Episode #61 finds our Geeks talking more cosplay, with the help of their friend Mimi Battaglia. Mimi has her hand in several facets of both cosplay and conventions. She’s not only a cosplayer herself, but also runs several different panels at conventions, and has her own bath bomb business “Bat’s Baths”.
Episode #60 finds our Geeks celebrating the wonderful world of cosplay! With the help of friend/cosplayer/prop-maker Gabe Silva, we chat about our first experiences with cosplay, what goes into the DIY side of cosplay, and the possibility of making it a legit business. We then dole out some helpful tips and tricks for listeners that might be interested in getting into cosplay, and/or the DIY side of things!
For our very first Star Trek episode, we take a look at the history of the long-running show, it’s cultural impact on both nerd-based and regular society, and ask serious questions such as “What’s the best iteration of Star Trek, and why is it The Next Generation?”
The podcast welcomes Jaren Prince, a one-of-a-kind Silent Bob cosplayer, avid fan of Kevin Smith movies, and just an all-around good dude. Jaren, David, and Ted chat about Smith’s filmography, especially his most recent film “Jay and Silent Bob Reboot”. Jaren also talks about how he got into Silent Bob cosplay, attending comic conventions, and even meeting Kevin Smith himself!
Oftentimes hard work, dedication, and persistence goes unnoticed and/or unappreciated. But we don’t work hard and bust our butts for recognition. We do so, because working hard at work worth doing is one of the more noble parts of life.
However, every once in a while, the sky opens up and drops something precious in your lap. And it’s because of all the hard work you’ve put forth, you’re able to recognize this precious thing. This is what has happened to the podcast.
It’s finally here! Our #RoadToMTAC2019 series comes to a close with Part 4/Live from MTAC episode, where we discuss cosplay with some of MTAC’s con-goers/cosplayers.
I’d like to thank all of my guests that came on the episode: McKensey Guffey and her friend Sarah, Ziggy McGee, Rika Fields, Kirk Griffin, and Andrew Knollenberg.
In addition, I want to thank all of our loyal listeners. Without you, none of this would be possible. It’s been a wild, amazing ride so far, and I can’t wait to share the next chapter of the Geek Garage with you all!
