Video Free Skaro 011 – Let’s Cosplay Why Not!

by Warren


This week Video Free Skaro visits Cos and Effect, Vancouver’s big cosplay convention where you’re likely to run into Batman, Link, Ringo Starr and trolls from Homestuck, often all at once. Warren interviews Heather Wilkinson, one of the organizers of Cos and Effect, and she gives him the lowdown on what cosplay is all about and how those interested can join in the fun.

All this and the (somewhat late) news! On Video! Free! Skaro!

Video Free Skaro 010 – 20 Sided Dice for All!

by Warren

This week Video Free Skaro dives back into the world of Standard Action, a web series shot in Vancouver and set in a mythical land not unlike one that involves both Dungeons and/or Dragons. We talked to Standard Action director Rob Hunt and costumer and assistant director Vanessa Driveness, and we’ve got a sneak peek from a scene between a sassy kobold and Eric Fell, whom you may recognize from Blue Meanie and Skaromantic Comedy.

All this and news, Gally updates and so much more!

Video Free Skaro 008 – Geeks After Dark

by Warren

It’s nerdlesque insanity at Video Free Skaro this week, with a peek at Geeks After Dark, the raucous monthly event featuring nerds, booze, burlesque and costumes. This month’s theme was Star Wars, with many a sexy Ewok and Hawaiian shirt clad Boba Fett in attendance.

We interviewed Fairlith Harvey, the organizer of Geeks After Dark, as well as her co-conspirator Cam Russell.

But that’s not all, we’ve also got news from Comic-Con! Truly, it is a great time to be a nerd.

All this and the latest news, reviews, and superfluous pictures of Jenna Louise Coleman!
