Special Guests and Presenters

It’s hard to imagine that a girl growing up with a love for video games and an early interest in the violin would ultimately turn into the global phenomenon and crossover sensation artist that is Taylor Davis. A self-admitted “proud nerd” and still an avid gamer, her unique arrangements of many of gaming, anime and film’s most iconic soundtracks have been viewed over 300 million times by her delighted audience of over 2 million YouTube subscribers.
16 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. The two ladies also speak on the importance of diversity when it comes to writing and pop culture, and they’ve both written about it via personal blogs and various websites like SyFy Wire. Speaking of writing, the ladies have work published through Dreamspinner Press, both write freelance for WatchMojo.com (a YouTube channel with 15 million subscribers), and they also self-publish their own series of books. Brichibi just released a black, queer, magical girl series called “magnifiqueNOIR” which has been featured on websites like “Wear Your Voice” and “Afropunk” while Snow is determined to scare the living daylights out of readers with her upcoming horror anthology “Little Creepers.” Along with their solo projects, the two will soon be working on the third book in their “Hunters” urban fantasy series. 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 book 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.

Mega Dads was launched in March 2014 as a gaming community dedicated to and created by gamers who balance their passion for video games with the responsibilities of adulthood. Spouses, children and careers can take up a considerable amount of time and trying to fit a time consuming hobby into your day can be quite a challenge. Mega Dads presents a humorous look at that life. But it’s not just for us old farts, Mega Dads provides a look at the video game industry that hopefully will be funny and informative to ALL gamers. The main attractions of the site are our weekly blog as well as our monthly web comic and podcast. We will also have the occasional reviews, videos and whatever other nonsense we may think of. We hope you enjoy checking out all of the content as much as we enjoy making it and greatly encourage you to get involved in the conversation through the comments section. Thanks alot! John has been a gamer for over 30 years and has a collection of video games his wife assures him is quite pathetic. While he has no formal education in the art of geekery he has attended numerous comic book, Star Trek and Xena: Warrior Princess conventions so his nerd cred is pretty legit. Adam is a graphic designer and multimedia artist. His art has been featured on various websites and he just completed his second children’s book. He also at one point owned a Starfleet Officers uniform… so there’s that.
We’re Natasha and Nester, a geeky couple from the Midwest! We love to stream a variety of Nintendo games, including Pokemon! We’re extremely excited for the release of Splatoon 2 on the Switch! We compete in Pokemon VGC at local game stores and Regional tournaments, as well as attend local science fiction and various geek conventions. We also think wrestling is pretty funny and entertaining.
