While attending Mill Hill School in the United Kingdom with fellow Harry Potter actor, Harry Melling, Ianevski had no particular acting aspirations and was not a drama student. He had only auditioned for “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire” after being spotted by Fiona Weir, a casting director who prompted him to attend an acting workshop, which resulted in his casting as Viktor Krum, a Bulgarian character in the Harry Potter series. He was selected from 650 others, most of whom had auditioned in Sofia, Bulgaria.

Samantha R. Crossland began her fashion design career with her label “Blasphemina’s Closet” in 2000. After closing “Blasphemina’s Closet” in September of 2013, she started anew with her new eponymous label “Samantha Rei”. “Samantha Rei” embodies the sweetness, femininity and attention to detail that has come to be expected from the designer.
Samantha Rei draws her inspiration from such illustrators as Chris Riddell, Brom, Tony DiTerlizzi, Brett Helquist and Mihara Mitsukazu as well as stories like Alice in Wonderland and Snow White. Her hero Alexander McQueen along with designers Vivienne Westwood, Hirooka Naoto, John Galliano, and Anna Sui have all influenced her style.
In 1998, Samantha began attending the Perpich Center for Arts Education in Golden Valley, Minnesota, choosing to hone her skills as an illustrator and painter so she could pursue comic book art. After graduating in 1999, she spent some time at the College of Visual Arts (CoVA) in Saint Paul to major in illustration before continuing her education at the Minneapolis Community and Technical College for Apparel Technologies. She’s been featured in Huffington Post, Shojo Beat, the American Gothic and Lolita Bible, Gothic Beauty, Glamour UK and Vogue UK. Samantha was named one of 2014 City Pages “Artists of the Year" and 2016 Best of the Twin Cities "Best Fashion Show" and Reader's Choice "Best Local Fashion Designer." In 2015 she authored and illustrated a how-to book on subculture fashion design called Steampunk and Cosplay Fashion Design and Illustration. Samantha Rei was a contestant on Project Runway season 16.
Samantha strives to help women feel confident, strong and comfortable in their own skin. She believes they can all be beautiful warriors.
Bryan Donihue is the creator of the World of Incursion, the dark urban fantasy setting for The Knight’s Bane Trilogy. He is also the author of other published works, a game designer, graphic artist, web designer, consultant, trainer, church ministry leader, and multiple-business owner. He is happily married to his wife of over 20 years, Christina, and the foster and adoptive father to six or seven kids, depending on the day. He even sleeps occasionally.
Bryan is currently writing from a top-secret, hidden bunker in Grand Rapids, Michigan. At least that's what he claims. We know he sits in a basement home office with a brass plaque that reads "Dungeon" affixed over the door.
The eldest son of Gary Gygax, co-creator of D&D, Ernie served as one of the very few original play-testers for Chainmail and Dungeons and Dragons. Ernie helped to shape both games by his ambitious and relentless play. His characters would become legendary to the D&D universe.
He was the manager of TSR’s Dungeon Hobby Shop, and later with Margaret Weis and Don Perrin’s store the Game Guild. Ernie reckons that he has had the pleasure of teaching well over a thousand people of all ages how to enjoy games of all types, but primarily Old School Dungeons and Dragons. Ernie served up his own dungeon for the regular players as well as the many customers of the Dungeon Hobby Shop. Which he is currently publishing with the "GP Adventures" project. New adventures abound. Join him and delve the famed dungeon!
Ernie will have his service dog KC (wearing a harness) with him at all times, so we ask our guest to not pet KC. Thank you in advance for your consideration.
