Mystery Sketch Theater happens every first Wednesday of the month. I went on February 5th. The sketch session happens in an empty warehouse in Winter Park, (784 Cherry St, Winter Park, FL). Kiki Aran was the model for the evening, dressed in a purple gown with a huge golden collar-breast plate and belt. For the February session, she was first dressed as Wonder Woman and then a female Ozymandias (comic version).
Kiki is a college professor by day and a cosplay crafting junkie by night. Best known for her Zero Suit Samus cosplay, her interests include FPS and Survival horror games, cerebral anime, DC Comics, and anything BBC. You can find her on FaceBook, or you might have seen her at Megacon 2014.
As always there was a competition and artists were given the challenge of sketching Kiki in a battle with corgis, that is right, those stumpy British pups. The winner walked away with Hayao Miyazaki's masterpiece, "My Neighbor Totoro" DVD. Since I already own the DVD I don't feel too bad. I was nowhere near finished when it came time to put the drawings on the model stand. I needed every minute to finish what I had started. As usual my attention shifted to the creators rather than just the model.
It always feels good having the luxury of a model who stays still. I need to get out to these sketch sessions more often. The next Mystery Sketch Theater Presents, Tokyo Belle on Wednesday, April 2 at 8:00pm. The Warehouse is at 784 Cherry St, Winter Park, FL 32789.
