While I was looking thru the blog archives to find my last Archie Brands post, I found this old post about Miss Colfax. It made me wonder if a Miss Colefax is still being named every month... Yes, it is still going on!
And finally, here's some obscure mermaid cosplay, based on the one time artist Akemi Takada drew Madoka Ayukawa (from Kimagure Orange Road) as a mermaid. Not that she is a mermaid in the story or anything, he just did this one painting. I love that there is cosplay for that one fleeting appearance!
