Happy New Year

New Year 2013

Happy New Year! Last year, we started this little blog called the Geek Forge. In it, we gave away all our crafting secrets as we learned them, and shared our geek-life adventures. Since then, we’ve gotten a Facebook page, a Twitter account, a Tumblr account, an Instagram account, a Flickr account, opened an Etsy store, and got a ton of new followers! This year, we want to keep growing and keep sharing our love of all things geek, so here are some things we’ve got coming up!

Cosplay Plans for 2013

Now that DragonCon is over and the influx of pictures have slowed, we’ve started looking at what costumes we’re going to try and make for DragonCon 2013 (only 336 days left!). Here’s our plan:

For Brian:

The Question
Doctor Doom
Commander Shepard

For Jen:

Huntress
Madame Masque
Tali

Plus Jen is helping a friend with a costume, and there may be more to come.  Some of these are pretty ambitious, and will require test-runs and new skills, including armor-making and lights.  Should be fun!

5 days!

It’s five days until DragonCon! We finished our super-secret project, and we’re coming down the home stretch!

Here’s what we have left to do:
– fix/remake Deathstroke’s mask
– attach snaps to Deathstroke’s bandolier
– locate circuitry for Shadowrun costume
– practice drone flying
– pack!

As you might have noticed, we have a fancy new website, just in time for DragonCon. Tell your friends!

After DragonCon, we’ll reveal the super-secret project. And stay tuned for more new features. Want to see us make something? Leave a comment below!

14 days!

Two weeks until DragonCon! We’ve updated the Huntress page, in the Cape, Hair and Makeup sections.

We’ve also updated the Jaq 2012 page, for your daily dose of Shadowrun geekery.

We’ve got some big things planned during and after DragonCon, so keep your eyes open! And don’t forget to check us out on social media – Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and G+. Each one has something slightly different!
