Stephen Euin Cobb 

was a Guest Author at

ConCarolinas  2005

 

 

 

Darth Maul won the costume contest.

 

A cool costume with even cooler makeup.

The audience cheered wildly.

 

 

 

 

That rambunctious crew

from the web radio show “Requiem of the Outcast”

taped a portion of their show in front of a live audience at ConCarolinas.

 

Here they are dancing to the musical stylings of their guest “The Great Luke Ski.”
