There's a new issue of Yipe!
- YIPE! Volume 2, Issue 6, “We’ll Take It In A Little,” is now available
for download at http://www.yipezine.com
Our June issue has a special focus on the recent Baycon here in Santa Clara:
Our first BayCon tale comes from our good friend Leo Schwab, who writes
of his out of costume life as a man everyone accuses of being in
costume. The awkwardness is reinforced by Joanne Pelaschier’s take on
her first ever outing to the San Francisco Bay Area’s… um… BayConiest…
Then, right on schedule, España gives the Masquerade system an atomic
wedgie and steals its lunch money. Longtime reader and first-time
contributor Deborah Bretschneider follows with the tale of “Eat the
Guests”, BayCon’s first attempt at a zombiewalk… or zombie sit, as the
case may be.
And, because we’re all a bunch of selfish bastards who can’t stop
talking about ourselves for one instant, Mette puts us back on track
with 10 questions for Cosplay goddess and BayCon regular Karisu.
As usual, we're always on the lookout for submissions for the next
issue. Drop a line to editors@... if you have an article,
photos, art, poetry, etc. you'd like to contribute to issue 2.7 for July!

As always, we're already on the lookout for articles, stories, photos,
artwork or even poetry about costuming in social spaces for future
issues. If you're interested in contributing (even a few hundred words
about someplace you went/something you did in costume), drop a line to
PS You might want to have a hand mirror handy when you read this issue.
- Kevin--thanks for the magazine--I still have not figured out how you
accomplish so much--I am thinking you actually exist in an alternate
universe where the days are 48 hours long, and so you somehow have more
time to get things done. If you are giving away free time tickets, count
Yours in costuming, Lisa a

We're especially underrepresented on historical events lately...
- We managed to get the December issue out at the last minute on December
Have a gander at my research on the proper wardrobe to wear with the
jetpack Santa brought you, what sort of gunsafe Espana needs for her new
raygun, and a bit of handy advice from Jason, while Mette asks one
question of 10 costumers and we all asked you for your wish lists!
Yipe is free for download at http://www.yipezine.com in both
high-resolution (double page) and low-resolution (single page) editions.
And, as always, we like to hear from *you*. We'll be featuring some

June costume wedding special, "Unbridaled", are now both available for

letters of comment) for future issues. All such can be directed to

for free download from <http://www.yipezine.com>.
As usual, it's been published in two resolutions for your convenience.
If you haven't visited the site recently, we've also posted the 12-page

Faneditors compilation at the 69th World Science Fiction Convention.
PS: It's October, the month we costumers are expected to be out doing
even wilder and more exotic things... drop a line to
editors@... and share what you are doing with our readers;

- Hard to believe it's been a year, but I'm happy to announce a new issue of Yipe!
Issue 4.10*, "Reanimated: Cocktails vs Zombies" is now available for
free download (in two resolutions) at http://www.yipezine.com
Debbie and Linda go commando for pink drinks, Chris finds the perfect
Cocktail Suit, Kevin is all dressed up with nowhere to drink as he
rolls his robot bartender all over town, and Jerry Thrills us all with
the brain-eating tale of her life as a Zombie.
This is my first issue as the sole editor of Yipe, and I'm quite
pleased with the results.
*the "10" in 4.10 is for October
