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. convention?

Then, right on schedule, EspaƱa 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 theGuests", 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@yipezine.com if you have an article,photos, art, poetry, etc. you'd like to contribute to issue 2.7 for July!
