Guests Confirmed for 2016
(More announcements to come!)
Best known to sci-fi fans for his role as Ranger Marcus Cole on “Babylon 5”, Jason Carter, born in London on September 23, 1960, is a British stage, film and television actor.
Leads in school plays and summers at the National Youth Theater of Great Britain led to three years at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA). In the Physical Theatre classes taught by Jane Gibson, who trained under Jacque le Coq in Paris, Jason found the acting and thinking tools that would inform his approach to his professional work.
Graduating in 1981 after a three-month tour of Holland and Belgium playing Romeo in "Romeo and Juliet", Jason pursued his craft in a variety of roles. High points include playing Macbeth at Chichester Festival Theatre, three long runs in the London West End: "The Sleeping prince" with Omar Sharrif, Simon Gray's "Melon" with Alan Bates, Simon Gray's "The Common Pursuit" directed by the author, and Steven Berkoff's Royal National Theatre production of Oscar Wilde's "Salome". In British television, Jason starred in two series, a mini series, a number of TV movies and numerous guest star roles.
Jason has enjoyed collaborating with many directors developing characters and evolving scenes. He worked closely with Jason Lehel whilst starring in “Boiling Point”, Gil Cates JR. on “The Mesmerist”, and Nick Ward on Working Title’s “Dakota Road” for which, at the Festival du Cinema Britannique de Dinard, Jason received a commendation for his performance as “Raif” from chairman of the judges, Ben Kingsley. The director's chair is an as yet unrealized creative interest for Jason that he looks to pursue for the future in addition to his acting work.
On American television Jason has had many roles, beginning with Connor, the hero's nemesis on the pilot episode of “Viper”, and guest starring in many popular series including “Beverley Hills 90210”, “Angel”, “Sentinel”, “Lois and Clark”, and “3rd Rock From The Sun”. When Jason auditioned for Marcus Cole on "Babylon 5", he had been told it was to guest star, and so was delighted when his surprised agent informed him it was a three-year contract and he had secured the role - a role that would change his life.
Whilst making “Babylon 5”, fine actor and dear friend, Richard Biggs suggested they partner up and develop fun classes to jointly share the craft they both loved. Richard and Jason would hold “The Biggs and Carter Experience” at conventions until Richard’s death in 2004.
Recently, Jason starred alongside Woody Harrelson and Liam Hemsworth in the upcoming western drama, "By Way Of Helena", which was filmed in October/November of 2014.

Briana Lawrence and Jessica Walsh
14 years ago Briana Lawrence (Brichibi Cosplays) and Jessica Walsh (SnowCosplays) were two fanfiction writing ladies who geeked out over Gundam Wing boys and Resident Evil. Now? They’re still geeks and still have their fandoms, but they’re also a cosplaying couple who write books, make crafts, and are generally nerdy women. Snow is the seamstress of the couple, meanwhile, Brichibi talks about issues in the cosplay community and how the most important thing about cosplay is to love yourself and have fun. Together, they also have a book series and each woman has individual works that range from books to freelance writings for places like Apex Magazine, xoJane, WatchMojo.com, Twin Cities Geek, and more.
When going to conventions they always bring their best so that they can promote their work. You can enjoy their crafts, get lost in their urban fantasy series, or heck, you can come by for a hug and fun conversations about cosplay, anime, or video games. Always promoting positivity and always supporting one another, Brichibi and Snow are smiling their way through the geek scene.
