But this brings forth a horde of undead huntsmen who take our hero and our villain to the land of the afterlife! The dead are the least of our heroes’ worries, though – for something dreadful and scaly lurks deep beneath the earth, waiting to be awakened…

After ‘Little Miss Popular’ Ruby Kaye landed a pair of power-inducing glasses from her college’s resident brainiac, Ruby alienated the majority of her clique while klutzily trying to demonstrate her newfound abilities.

Ancestors #1

30.000 years ago, Homo Sapiens shared the Earth with the Neanderthals, albeit in isolated communities. While the Neanderthals lived on carrion left by their neighbours, Homo Sapiens flourished and developed under the guidance of a strange feminine creature that had a divine presence.

In the present day, the Hayes family try to cope with the grief of losing their youngest child who died in terrible circumstances, and they soon have to face the consequences.

The recently elected new Mayor, Albert Cox, has to confront opposition from voters to his prize political project: the building of a megalithic pyramid on an area that was the site of a historical massacre.

Finally, Kayla Joseph must deal with a bullying situation at school.

Everyone will know very soon that these events are all connected…

The Cosplay Journal Vol 3 – OUT NOW!

The Cosplay Journal Vol 2 Cover FixThe third volume of The Cosplay Journal is here, bringing more ideas, insight, and interviews from the world of cosplay and costume making.

The Cosplay Journal is a coffee table periodical focusing on the Diversity and Craft of cosplay. We want to show that not only can anyone from any walk of life be involved in cosplay, but also that we’re all capable of learning new skills, creating amazing things and bringing joy into our own and other people’s lives through the art form of costume making.

The Cosplay Journal’s mission is to dispel the myths about cosplay and cosplayers, as well as promoting cosplay as way into a new world and maybe even a new career.

There is no one way to be a cosplayer. Many mainstream media outlets choose to show only certain elements of cosplay, creating an idea that cosplayers have to be “traditionally attractive,” which has led many to believe that they can’t cosplay. This is, of course, not the case because the idea of traditional beauty is ridiculous and damaging to society as a whole and it really doesn’t matter, what matters is having fun in your costume. We believe that everyone is beautiful and so we showcase a whole rainbow of truly stunning, talented, diverse people of all shapes, sizes, races and genders.

This volume includes an interview with Critical Role artist, Kit Buss, talking about the amazing work she has done with Critical Role as well as her own project, Cloven. It’s also full of thought-provoking articles, ranging from race in cosplay, to the history of costuming, as well as looking at the many different crafts and skills you can use to bring your ideas to life, such as puppetry and embroidery, on top of all the amazing featured cosplayers and regular articles.
