toddTodd Haberkorn -Voice Actor Guest of Honor

Todd Haberkorn has been on stage, on set, and behind a mic for many years. Not only is Todd an actor in LA, he works as a producer, writer, and director as well. And he’s even been an action figure or two. Haberkornmobile sold separately.

Gray Man, Hikaru Hitachin from Ouran High School Host Club, Death The Kid from Soul Eater, and many others. As far as video games go, you’d recognize his voice in the Call of Duty Series, Defiance, World of Warcraft, Street Fighter IV, Ghostbusters, Silent Hill: Book of Memories, Borderlands 2, and Rage to name a handful. His voice makes sure to get its marathon training in as an award winning narrator for audio-books. Do a Google search and you’ll find everything from thrillers and young adult to zombie sagas and children’s books.

As far as on camera is concerned, when he isn’t working on films, industrials, and television projects for other companies, Todd does work with his company Out of the Office Productions. This is one aspect of a long history of on camera work in narrative film, commercials, and shorts.  When he isn’t fighting digital monsters in video games or trying to save the day on film, Todd travels the U.S. and internationally making appearances at gnarly pop culture conventions as a guest to meet super cool fans and sign autographs. He is represented by The Horne Agency, Jeff Zannini Management, Johnson Talent Agency, and William Morris Endeavor.

SpacePizzaJen Turner (Space Pizza Cosplay)

Being a rabid anime fan from an early age it was only a matter of time before she got sucked into the world of cosplay. Attending her first Anime Convention in 2000, she left with cosplay plans for the next year! Since then it has been a downward spiral that she is never looking back from. From this moment on she has spent her time teaching herself how to sew. Having a strong interest in stage theater it was also only a matter of time before she took to the stage, for masquerades that is! Her first masquerade was at Anime Vegas where her group won Best in Show. She has gone on to win several other awards and even ran the Anime Conji masquerade, staffed for San Diego Comic Con’s masquerade and was a judge for Anime California’s Masquerade! After this SpacePizza went on to team up with Crunchyroll, an anime streaming website, as an affiliate through their Ambassador program. This and cosplay in general has brought her many opportunities, including being the official Yang from RWBY for Rooster Teeth at San Diego Comic Con, and being an international cosplay guest in Mexico City. She now lives happily in San Diego with Junkers the corgi, many may know from Junkers Cosplay. SpacePizza Cosplay is excited to be returning to Anime California and seeing all of your smiling faces!
