HI everyone it’s me Bronte Aka BangBangNeko

Posted: March 24, 2011 by bangbangneko in Introduction

Hello everyone my name is Bronte Mckinney and i’m very excited to be a part of CONgear!

Now time to give a little background info about me;

I’ve been cosplaying for 7 years now, starting the crazy hobby called Cosplay in 2005. Where I wore my first cosplay Edward from Cowboy bebop; and from there I’ve been addicted. I’ve competed for 6 years winning awards from best in show, best novice, best journeyman in the skits plus various judges choice awards and won best adult novice and best journeyman in the costume portion. But now I like to be on the convention floor and enjoy the cons wearing the craziest and most elaborate costumes humanly possible.  I do hope this year though to compete at the World Cosplay Summit; which if I do I will be doing a full report. Anyways I hope to bring this blog tons content including some special effect make-up tutorials since that’s what I love to do. So once thank you for this chance and I hope to bring the best to you the READERS!!! ^-^ *love*

Hey ConGear fans!

Looks like Mike has been making sure we’re still relevant. Fate help us all…

All that aside, we’ve got a huge amount of stuff  to bring you, including introducing two new people you’ll be seeing on our Sakura-Con episode!

First, we must introduce our tame otaku.

Some say, he is BitTorrent. Others say, he has USB slots where his eyes should be. All we know is, he’s called the Twig!

The Twig will be seen in a lot of our films, plus it’s his job to assist stars in our Anime-Like car. He recently beat Bressler’s 1:20.9 around our track, and posted a 1:18.7.

We also have a second person to introduce.

Our producers insisted that we needed a fourth presenter. Someone who was more attractive and younger. This made us all very angry. Mike’s vanity was sullied (he was so sad, he cried himself out of our last video), Tanis no longer felt like a cute gay, and, well, I’m the most attractive person on the Internet.

We did eventually acquiesce and let the producers select a fourth presenter:

Welcome Bronte McKinney to the ConGear team! She’s an incredibly talented cosplayer who will be doing some additional con review work for us, as well as appearing in our next ConGear challenge film, which you will see at Sakura-Con! Welcome her aboard and make her feel as welcome as you have Mike!

Keep an eye out for exciting news here as well as our YouTube channel – where we try to update it at least once a week!


Mike has something to say!

We say goodbye, and we also say hello!

Patar had to leave the ConGear team due to life commitments, and we will miss him dearly. This means, we need a new third host!

And we found him already! Ladies and gentlemen, welcome Mike Warthen to the ConGear team! He’s actually Bressler from 5 years in the past. He likes cosplaying vampires:

He read all of the books, though.

Please welcome him with open arms to ConGear! He’ll be helping Bressler with the AkiCon video review!
