Daragonne, a.k.a Daphnée, has been a passionate cosplayer for 4 years now. Adept at all sorts of projects ranging from complete armor to advanced sewing, she particularly likes original creations that gives way to inventiveness and the addition of details. Her biggest pride? The variety of weapons she has created over the years, and the place they now take in her room!
Space Potatoe, aka Laurie, is not really a TB patient. Her true passion is the wigs. In fact, if you see her in convention, she will probably have a comb in her hand and will be helping a poor distressed cosplayer to fix her wig. She very often embodies waifus (beware of nosebleeds caused by the loli factor). Her biggest fear? That a good quality wig is too mixed up to save it.

The Aventureux podcast was born in 2015 on the initiative of Étienne Harvey, who was looking for volunteers to help create the first Quebec podcast for role plays. After a general appeal to the revolutionaries of the province, Marc Vallières and Philippe Gamache answered the call and joined the team. United by a common passion, an infinite curiosity and the parole, the three role-players instantly became accomplices and embarked on the adventure without looking back. During our first year of existence, a fourth member joined the adventure: our dear Carine Hamel. If the purpose of the podcast is summed up in three words, they are: Discover, Share and Debate.
