I wanted some Captain America props in my cosplay collection and started with the Captain America helmet. I finally finished the shield (after almost a year of slowly coming back to it). The shield was the most challenging prop I’ve had to finish to-date.
Seas and Greetings from the Midwest! We live in St. Louis, but it didn’t stop us from having a tropical, coastal Christmas. We installed a swim spa this year so it seemed like a fitting theme. Turquoise is my favorite color, and we decked the halls with many shades of blue and all our favorite sea creatures!
We had an amazing time hosting a watch party for The Rings of Power premiere. A few of the 3D printed props were the 20 Rings of Power (for a ring toss game), a Mt Doom smoldering with dry ice, a light up Gandalf staff, the tower of Orthanc, the Witch King of Angmar’s helmet, crown of Galadriel and Elrond, and the swords Narsil and Sting. The food included lembas bread, Ring of Power cake, Mtn Dewm cocktails, Misty Mountain mead, “They Come in Pints?” beer, and loaded potatoes consisting of “Taters Precious,” “Meat’s Back on the Menu, Boys,” “Weathertop Crispy Bacon,” and “Pippin’s Peppers.” Check out the pictures and videos.
Currently the newest MLB stadium (opened in 2020), fans can take shelter from the Texas heat with an air conditioned interior and extensive Texas Live! complex right outside the gate. The food options mirror the Texas saying “everything’s bigger in Texas” with the enormous hot dog and beer options. The game was sold out and fans were very lively cheering the Rangers to an 8-0 win! We had a wonderful time taking in the game with my cousin Christa and her husband Sean, who live in the area! The stadium itself unfortunately was very steep, a bit difficult to navigate, and lacked any notable design features.
