Saint John has recently seen a bump in cosplayers. They’ve made a good showing at a local gaming convention, but I kept having people ask me how to get into Cosplay and where do people meet? Without a solid answer I took matters into my own hands and scheduled a monthly meet up at my
It’s been almost 2 months since I’ve updated. Life had gotten pretty hectic for a while. I had a family issue that needed my attention for more than a month (good new things are looking up), then I went on vacation to Chicago for Star Wars Celebration! OMG it was so amazing. Couldn’t have asked
One of my favorite games over the last couple of years has been Star Wars Destiny. It is a card and dice game from Fantasy Flight Games. A great group of people get together every other Thursday to play at Heroes’ Beacon. As part of our regular tournaments I’ve decided to start making Alt-Art Foil

I’m having some problems with cracking in prints, I’ll share what I’ve been doing to fix it in a later post. I’ve started the process of filling and sanding the Sith Mask.
First I want to thank everyone who voted in my poll. It is really encouraging to know people are reading and interested in my projects! Surprisingly the Sith Mask was the winner. I thought for sure it would be Han’s blaster. I started the Sith Mask as part of a cosplay idea for an original
I’ve mentioned a few times I have a problem starting projects then not finishing them. While I’m making good progress getting my Mando helmet printed (more on that in another post).
