Tanglwyst de Holloway
Tanglwyst de Holloway will be joining us at Anime Kaigi 2012!
Tanglwyst de Holloway, aka Tonya Adolfson, teaches panels on everything from making your own patterns to basic armor creation, from character creation to proper flirting. She's been a professional costumer for 22 years and has worked in the costume shops of Southern Utah University and the Utah Shakespearean Festival. Tangl has done wigs, make up, props and movement for the stage, and turned her impressive set of skills to teaching at Society for Creative Anachronism events. She fell in love with Steampunk while doing panels at conventions, and has thrown herself fully into this intriguing genre. Luckily, many of her skills apply very well to the re-imaginative world of Steampunk and she adores the innovation and freedom Steampunk allows.
Tangl’s book, Thine Enemy’s Eyes, is the first novel released by Fantastic Journeys Publishing. As a co-founder, Tangl looks for submissions from other authors, helping them to tune their writing and realize their dreams. “The company is run by authors, for authors, and is small enough to give you individual attention. We welcome submitters and want to learn about your endeavors!
Warky T. Chocobo
Warky T. Chocobo is coming to Anime Kaigi 2012!
Steve Nunez, aka Warky T. Chocobo, grew up playing video games, first on his commodore 64, and eventually at the ripe age of 5, playing Nintendo. Steve remembers popping in Super Mario Brothers, and from the moment that first note played, he was hooked.
Steve wanted to learn to play piano so that he could recreate the melodic tones he heard. Being too poor for piano lessons, Steve taught himself to play the piano without using his thumbs. Since then, he has played and sang many conventions including I-con in New York, Anime Banzai in Utah, Otakon in Maryland & all Animeland Shows.
Steve is also a talented LDS "Mormon" singer and lyricist with his parody group, "They Might Be Elders".
Steve is now breaking into the Voice Acting scene with credits for Video Games, and his latest role as the narrator in the Full Cast Audiobook Series, "Prophecy Of The Flame", by Lynn Hardy.
