Last month we posted about the "Gardenovation" edition of PechaKucha Night in Miami -- held just over a week ago -- and here's a bit more on one of the presenters, courtesy of organizer Carl Hildebrand. Pictured above (and in the rest of this post) is make-up artist Juan Antonio Costa. Not only does he like to pose in such costumes and make-up, he actually did his presentation in the suit you see in the photo. We should add that Tokyo is no stranger to "cosplay" when it comes to presenting at a PKN, as we've had a Stormtrooper and Dragonball's Goku both present in the past.

Michael has considered the heart of his practice as 'social-cultural animation' for some years (after the French concept animation socio-culturelle), Denise Daffara Artist Denise Daffara’s paintings began in 1999 as a celebration of fun and freedom to create her contemporary figurative feminine style.
