Ok folks the Idea is that in North Canton / Stark County Ohio their is little to no cosplay / theatre community atmosphere. Their is no place to go to work on your convention costume or prop. Their is no place to get a set or prop for your theatrical show you want to produce locally, nor at a good price.
The main focus is “The Work Shop”, it is a place open to the community for a membership fee that will give you access to all the tools you need to build basically anything. Bellow is a video of a tour of the Face/Off Fabrication space. I am designing my space to look and function much like theirs
Update 7/29 /15
Well it took forever thanks to grad classes but I have finally got to publishing some new content and tah mean s the floor plans for the 2 shops at Drake Enterprises are here!
Ok here it is the 5 year plan as perceived by the floor plan for Drake Enterprises Headquarters
The floor plan shows the existing rental space as it is now with the walls as is. As the sideshow progresses you will see the new renovations in the yellow highlighted areas. Then finally the last picture is of the Headquarters totally done and fully functional.
Coming soon will be the actual floor plans of the 2 stores
The Closet and Drake Theatrical Store
Well I am working on a Animated floor plan for the space I’d like to move into. It will be posted soon.
Here is a tiny (on purpose) tease of what has been in my mind since I saw the space. I’ll take you through what it has now and how it will get to the finished floor plan
In the meantime I just got this delivered today. Since dragons are my family and my businesses life blood. I snapped up this precious guy for future Christmas and special events to be displayed in the shop.
His wings actually flap check out the video bellow to see it!
CUBE 3D PRO PRINTER AND SCANNERS
Ok guys I’m showing some brand new tech here. Most of you should know about the 3D printing technology that is quickly becoming more affordable and as such more accessible. Now for us cosplayers its a great tool HOWEVER it cant really be used unless complying g with a lot of rules when competing at a conventions masquerade contest. So for now I’ll just say I’m planning on having HOPEFULLY 2 of these fantastic machines and 2 scanners. WOW you might say that’s a investment ! yep yeah it is seeing as this machine is over $3000 but I think its a extremely useful tool for not only the cosplay division of my business but also for the theatre prop rental portion. It will cut the time in half to craft some props or at least save a couple of steps between design and final product.
So WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THIS NEW TECH?
The 3D Scanner i Pad Portable Scanner
