Just in time for the Texas Renaissance Festival, Austin Comic Con and Halloween (at the time of the recording anyway) comes Anomaly’s first “Costuming 101” episode.  Jen and Angela were joined by their guests “Sith Jen” (formerly known as Buggy’s Jen) and Angela’s husband Jim. They talked about their costuming plans for these events and offer tips and resources for beginning costumers. It’s basically a how to cosplay episode. At the start of the show, Sith Jen and Angela selected one of the Anomaly Facebook Group’s Fista Cuff suggestions and debated who would win in a fight, Arthur Dent or Bilbo Baggins. You’ll have to listen to find out who they declared the victor. Thanks to Eric M. for the suggestion.

November 22-24th, Jen, Angela, Kasey and Darth Jen will at Austin Comic Con. Anomaly has booth in the Fan Group area. Rico from Treks In Sci-Fi will be there too, come hang out and say “hi”.

About the Author:

Believer, wife, mom, designer, voice actress, podcast host...Anomaly. Jen is one of the founding co-hosts of Anomaly. She introduced Angela to Podcasts in 2006, after stumbling upon Treks In Sci-Fi. They became involved in the Trek SF forum and were encouraged by the host (and now good friend) Rico Dosti, to start their own show. They did in 2007 with a little help from their friends and have never looked back. :)
