Episode 53: Otafest Pt. 2

Episode 53: Otafest Pt. 2

With Kristy North Peigan and Girl_DM

UPDATE: This page has been updated with the correct video. Previously, it had the link to Otafest Pt. 1 instead of Pt. 2. Thank you for your patience.

We continue to explore the stories behind the scenes of this Otafest 2024 in this episode of our Living a Creative Life web series with host Adora Nwofor.

Tune in and learn about Kristy North Peigan, aka Kristicles, a Blackfoot artist whose interest in the arts led her to the Alberta College of Art and Design (now AUArts), and to creating wonderful costumes for cosplay. Then meet VTuber Girl_DM in all her anime glory discussing her appearances at OtaFests past and present. This Japanese pop culture festival runs May 10 to 12 at the Telus Convention Centre.
