We are not so different you and I! (Sports fans and cosplayers)

I was siitting here this evening thinking of an interesting conundrum. You see there are two groups of people that dress up in outlandish outfits and go to events. The first category being sports fans, and the second being cosplayers. Now when we think about this logically how is it any different to dress up in your favorite team gear, with paint all over your face, to go to a game versus dressing up in your favorite garb or as your favorite character and going to a Con? I see no difference. In fact once may say they are quite similar. So next time you laugh at someone dressing up as a Victorian lady, think about if you have a sports jersey in your closet of your favorite sports player. You are woven of the same cloth.

Seriously thee proof is in the pudding here.

New and interesting things!

 We have started a new venture! Steampunk weapons! Though it is in its first stages, I think we are doing pretty well for just winging it. I (Nicole) am going to take point on making them, with some additions by Penny. They are a lot of fun to make, you just need a ton of air flow in the room, or you get a head ache from the paint. I am really excited about this new adventure, and hope that our shoppers love them as much as I do. Here are a couple previews of our new weapons!
Hopefully we can sell these at the convention we are going to (SheVAcon) which is a sci-fi, horror, and fantasy convention!

Also keep your eyes open over the next couple weeks, we will be adding some Valentine's day gifts to our Etsy shop!
