Rachel Lamiacea

Chicago Lolita Community

I'm Rachel, I've been wearing Lolita fashion for a decade. I'm a Chicago native and I help run the Chicago Lolita Community. I'm passionate about teaching newcomers and love sharing the fun of Lolita fashion. I've hosted my Lolita 101 panel at multiple conventions for several years now, and I'm always glad to see new people learning to wear and enjoy the fashion for themselves. Lolita fashion is striking, unapologetic, and fun, and it's for everyone.

Hello I'm Sin!, I am a FPS streamer who mostly plays Apex Legends (Ranked) and sometimes I'll dabble in some Halo! When I'm not playing FPS or Horror like story games, I am usually in my discord hanging out with my community watching movies or tv getting their mind off their stressful week at hand. So if you're looking for a laid back streamer who is sweet, Cute & Petty because she likes Dasani water, then I'm your Gal.

D.R. "Solo" Perry

Ka-Pow!! Art Academy

Founder, Instructor & Artist

Born on the Southside of Chicago, D.R. "Solo" Perry is completely self-taught & has been a professional artist & animator since the age of 14 when he was first hired as a t-shirt designer for a local screen printer. After being HONORABLY discharged from the U.S. Army, he soon found himself working as a Chicago Police officer, married with four children, & fully 'ADULTING'. Though life was good, comics & animation were his passion & he longed to grow to a professional level as an artist in 'The Comic Arts.' He began searching for accessible, affordable, specific, yet comprehensive learning but couldn't find anything that checked the 'boxes' to fit his needs. After years of honing his skills & becoming an industry artist he never forgot how hard it was to simply learn in a convenient, affordable, & structured way & he knew he couldn't be the only one in the world with this issue. So to answer this dilemma & Ka-Pow!! The Comic Arts Academy was born!!
