What is a Makerspace?

The old school artists’ commune has fallen by the wayside these days. Art is moving into a digital age, and our economy is seeing a growing deficit for skilled, work-with-your-hands kinds of jobs. But with schools finding themselves hard up for funding in art and craft apprenticeship learning, and colleges focusing on profit-driven programs, kids and creatives find themselves with diminishing resources to experiment, create and ultimately learn “maker” skills. To address this void, across the United States, a maker movement has emerged. It’s homegrown, DYI-friendly, and all about inspiring creativity across mediums and all ages.

Best Games of 1996

We’re back after taking a week off for Denver Comic Con with the seventh entry in our series on the best games of all time! Since Loresworn has only been around since 2015, but D.M. and T.J. have been having opinions about games much longer than that, we’re embarking on a journey through every year from 1980 to the present, listing our favorite games that came out each year. Every week we’ll be discussing a specific year, listing what we think are the five best games from that year. At the end of this saga, we will look over all the games from each year to create Top 25 Games of All Time lists for each of us, and a grand Top 100 Games of All Time to stand as Loresworn’s final word on the subject!

Toph Beifong Cosplay – Update #2

This is where the fun (and hair pulling) began! With this update, I dove into hours of pinning and altering of the top in order to keep this cosplay as realistic as possible. I knew going in that this was going to be the case, but I am always up for a challenge – that is how you get better!

Clea Cosplay – Update #1

At long last I have found time to really get started on my Clea cosplay! The body suit was the first step and was super easy to make. It was my first time doing a garment like this, and I’m really happy with how it turned out.

Toph Beifong Cosplay – Update #1

Finally, the Toph is back! It took us a bit to relax our high working hours and get settled into our new place. I am quite excited to pick this cosplay back up again and wear it to Denver Comicon. My overall goal for this cosplay is to wear it to Children’s Hospitals when we finish our “Avitar: The Last Airbender Series”.

Building the Studio

At last, the Order has a proper work studio that is not a third bedroom of an apartment! We are extremely lucky to have found a place with an attached, two-car garage, which has given us enough space for a glorious amount of sawdust, and several cosplays in the works. And of course, Kaycee, the Loredog, gets to hang out and guard against the various bunnies and mice when the door is open.
