EMC Guests 2013


Doctor Holocaust

As we get closer towards our up-and-coming show, we at EMC just recently received news that the Waterloo region will be receiving Toronto's greatest diabolical technical super villain known as Doctor Holocaust! After an extensive information search very little is known about this individual of polymath scientific of evil genius. as I look at the reports, I have to ask myself is Doctor Holocaus, truly a villain in today's upside down, inside out modern-day society, or is he an individual who has been scarred somehow by society and thus an individual who is truly misunderstood by his peers? information that has been gathered can be viewed at your leisure within the following web sites: http://www.doctorholocaust.com/and/or http://www.youtube.com/user/DoctorHolocaust

Louis Frost

Your con hasn't brightened up like a shining star until you've met Louis Frost. Going by serveral aliases around the cons, he goes by the V.I.P. moniker Allfrost. Like a star with wings, he goes around socializing with the attendees, bringing an uplifting atmosphere and reflecting the nature of cons in the GTA. Louis's first convention experience, back in Fanexpo 08', gave him an insight on how big the social scene was for anime, comic book, video games, etc. First documenting his experiences in the form of a Youtube show, Lou has been increasing his activities at cons by becoming a photographer, getting into cosplay, and helping to introduce people to the convention scene. He's a mischevous trouble maker, which comes with the job as Soul Patch's Head Of Blackops. During his spare time, he likes to lavish in his wealth by counting and updating his noble amassment of hats. (And sleeping in.) Brawling in the streets in a blue blaze of glory to become the king of fighters, Lou is the go-to guy for con advice and experience. If a situation calls for Lou, he can truly say "I've got this.
