Go Fund Me Campaign Goes Live

Happy Halloween!

Our Go Fund me Campaign goes live today!

gofund me

It took a month to get it right but today is the big day we go live!!!

Please check out the campaign and donate !

We are trying to help School Theatre Programs and Cosplayers in Ohio by offering them quality props, sets, and costume pieces for cheap and more affordable prices. Doing so, well help these school programs be more affordable and less likely to be cut. By fostering our cosplayer community, we give more opportunities for fan boys and girls to participate in conventions and wear costumes that they could never have afforded to make themselves.

No one should be denied the ability to take part in either of these communities due to high costs, we aim to fix that!

But we can not do it alone. We need your help and support so that we can acquire the tools and the materials we need to begin fabrication. We can than start to offer these 2 groups a new alternative and some relief from the high costs and monopolies on services.

Thank you and please donate

Hump Day – IN Honor OF MY FRIEND


Universe, Facebook Folks and Pinterest Pals,

Well I’m back sorry for being away but my friend got hurt pretty bad. She is ok. Had to have a surgery. I’ve been there for her taking care of her. I wouldn’t change one thing about it other than her getting hurt in the 1st place of course.

She’s my best friend and I feel privileged to have her in my life. So I showed her this clip after a evening trying to find the only 24 hr pharmacy in the area. Its funny and when dealing with hospitals and doctors and pharmacies its perfect.

So In honnor of my friend this weeks hump day is “Iliza shlesinger pharmacist” stand up Enjoy

Heal Quick hun!


Cosplay Sat. . . . How do you take care of your stuff???

Hi Universe and Facebook folks,


Well it has occurred to me that I am quickly amassing a lot of stuff that is either remnants of fabric and the like or actual costumes and props.  Where am I going to put all of this stuff?  How should I put this stuff away?

So This week the question is simple: How do you store your cosplay things both remnants and costumes and props?



Lets Talk Live Theatre Updated

Hi Universe and Facebook Folks,

Well here it is my review of Into the woods.

Its now available on DVD I would say its a fine rental but having paid full prie at the movies I was disapointed and felt it was hit and miss.

Check out my full review with matching scenes from it playing.

Best Part : Agony, Emily Blunt, Anna Kendrick

Worst Part:  abrupt ending and shoulda went for the funy moments all the time instead of too serious.
