David Wald

 

David Wald began voice acting several years ago with ADV Films, Sentai Filmworks, and Funimation. His credits include Bulat in Akame Ga Kill!, Hannes in Attack On Titan, Gajeel in Fairy Tail, Paulie in One Piece, Mutsumi in Kiss Him, Not Me, Rikki Nendou in The Disastrous Life of Saiki K, Germán in Garo: The Animation, Reiji in Diabolik Lovers, Ren in DRAMatical Murder, Katze in Gatchaman: CROWDS, Woodley in Black Butler: Book of Murder, Raizo in Ghost In The Shell: Arise, Master Chief in Halo: Legends, Charlie in Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Duke Togo in Golgo 13, Tsutomu in Kids On The Slope, Kyouichi in Tokyo Majin, Kaito Daimon in Phi Brain, Kondou in Hakuoki, Dr. Ozaki in Shiki, Choe Gu-Sang in Psycho Pass, and Count Magnus Lee in Sentai’s 2015 dub of Vampire Hunter D, among many others. David served as ADR Director for Aura: Koga Maryuin’s Last War, and has recently begun working as a writer of ADR scripts.

David began working in theatre way back when WHAM! topped the Billboard charts, Back To The Future was the top-grossing film, wide, neon shoelaces were a thing, and we were all blissfully unaware of the damage our hairspray was doing to the ozone layer. Since those days, David has developed a great love for Shakespeare and very little need for hairspray. You’re welcome, ozone layer! He’s worked with noted Shakespeare scholars and interpreters including Andrew Wade from the RSC, Tina Packer from Shakespeare & Company, Guy Roberts from the Prague Shakespeare Company, and the late, great Dr. Sidney Berger of The Houston Shakespeare Festival.

David was a Studio Music and Jazz major at Elmhurst College, the University of Miami, and the University of North Texas and spent several years playing and singing in rock, funk, and jazz bands in the Midwest and East Coast. Eventually, he ran out of rock-n-roll angst and decided to go back into the more rational world of acting. His therapist has encouraged him to investigate the reasoning behind this decision thoroughly.

Colony Drop Cosplay

Darien Spider, raised in Raising Star Texas on a cattle ranch, spent 15+ years as a LARPer before making his debut in Cosplay at San-Japan 7. Specializing in cold forged metal armor and outlandish but sturdy props, including a functioning chariot and a breech loading Harkonnen Cannon, his builds and build have put him head and shoulders above the competition on the cosplay stage. From Novice to Master in his first cosplay show, now even stage fright can’t slow this spacenoid down!

QueenofSpace, a cosplayer since birth, well at least since per-pubesence, made her cosplay debut at Baka-con (now Sakura-con) 1998. Her passion for costume making has led her to a career as a garment production seamstress, and she has recently made a trip to Malaysia to combat urban poverty by teaching under privileged women how to sew for production.

Together, they lead Colony Drop Cosplay, a name you’ve probably heard of a lot if you’ve attended any cosplay competitions in the last few years, to date they have taken 19 major awards, including four Best in Show titles, and even made it to the World Cosplay Summit National competition in 2015.

With the help of GoblinQueen (Hair and Makeup), ZappaSlave (Stage Ninja Extraordinaire), and TheSockNinja (Financial Backer, and Moral Support), Colony Drop Cosplay is a team that really lives up to it’s name.

Kira Kira Entertainment is Texas’s premiere pop culture production company whose mission is to celebrate Kawaii culture through the performing arts. Kawaii is the Japanese word for “cute,” and it encompasses many different styles of media. Though usually thought of as bright colored and child-like, Kawaii can encompass just about anything that is considered cool. Many different subcultures have
adopted the word, from the usual suspects like Lolita and Fairy fashion to Goth, Menhera, and Neo-Gal. Here at Kira Kira Entertainment, we strive to share the Kawaii culture that we have come to love through each show we produce.

Video Game Studios

Hebi Studios – RageBall

Hebi Studios will be showing off their game RageBall, which is a two-dimensional sports game that simulates table tennis, created right here in San Antonio! The player controls an in-game paddle by moving it vertically across the left side of the screen, and can compete against either a computer-controlled opponent or another player controlling a second paddle on the opposing side. Players use the paddles to hit balls back and forth. The aim is for each player to reach ten points before the opponent; points are earned when one fails to return the ball to the other. There are obstacles in the middle that will deflect the balls, as well as a special ball that can be fired at the opponent. This ball is called the RageBall. Each ball is worth one point, with the exception of the RageBall which is worth two points. There are nine different playing fields, each with different music, and obstacles.

Enso Entertainment – Waifu Fight: Dango Style

Enso Entertainment is an Indie developer and publisher of entertainment software.  Established in February of 2017, becoming the first Indie developer and publisher of entertainment software based in Corpus Christi Texas. We are currently in development of Waifu Fight: Dango Style. What is Waifu Fight?

Waifu Fight: Dango Style is an exciting new retro-type action based game incorporating a unique mix of intense gameplay and attractive, anime-style character artwork! You and your Waifu of choice will square off against an opponent by bouncing dangos between one another until you break through each other’s defense! Waifu Fight is a crazy mix between the wall breaking mechanics of Breakout, the narrative and sexual elements of HuniePop, the special attacks and combos of Street Fighter, and the retro action from good old fashioned Pong!

Unlike its contemporaries in the ecchi game field, Waifu Fight incorporates its characters as a gameplay element—frequently a character will pop into the middle of the screen and your dangos will bounce off of her cute and sexy body! Combine this with a robust suite of items and power-ups, the paths to victory become nearly endless!
