Our first build-a-long – foam shield!

Jen’s been streaming on Thursday mornings for the past few weeks while working on various projects. We’ve had a request to build a prop, so we’re going to do our first build-a-long of a foam ballistic-style shield for a Shadowrun cosplay! We’ve put together a list of materials and supplies you’ll need for this project, so you can build with us! We’ve provided some links to find the materials as well. Join us starting on May 13th at 10 AM ET on twitch.tv/thegeekforge, and catch up on previous videos on our YouTube channel

Streaming while we work!

Last year, we tried streaming 2-3 times a week. It was a little more aggressive than we realized, so we’re trying again this year – this time, once a week on Thursday mornings at 10 AM EST. You can check us out and come hang out live on Twitch, or catch the most recent broadcast below! We’ve also uploaded all the videos to our YouTube channel
