About The Mind Forge – Fueling the Fire
Hello, please take a moment to read me! Thanks for visiting The Mind Forge, a place where cosplay, art, and engineering converge!
Several years ago I was introduced to the world of comic and gaming conventions, the sort of thing I would have only dreamed of attending as a kid. Of course, along with all the awesome things geeky conventions have to offer, seeing fellow enthusiasts dressed in costume really grabbed my attention. I saw tons of people that put time and effort into replicating something that meant so much to them, something I hoped I could contribute to in my own way. It didn’t take long before I decided to start work on my first serious cosplay project, an undertaking that seriously changed my perspective on what I was able to achieve with some knowledge, common sense, and some basic tools.
Over time, The Mind Forge will contain a variety of artistic endeavors and ideas. However, most of the projects associated with The Mind Forge right now are costume/cosplay related. The interests of our “Mindsmiths” go beyond cosplay, and we will be very excited to share them with you in the future! So what sort of content can you expect? Regular postings on on-going projects, posts/galleries on completed projects, and even tutorials on how some of our projects were made. I want this to be a place where we can show off what we’ve achieved as a community, but also give back and share ideas/experiences that can help others make their own projects better!
One last thing before you go. This blog is called The Mind Forge because fire has a lot in common with the human brain. A spark can erupt into flames, just like an idea catching on for the first time. When a fire becomes a blaze it is relentless, not unlike an individual’s passion! If a fire can be contained and harnessed in a vessel, perhaps in a blacksmith’s forge, it can be used to create truly amazing things. So what is The Mind Forge? It’s a place where I hope you and many others come to seek inspiration on creative projects of all shapes and sizes (not just cosplay), just like every other creator out there who inspired me!
Thank you for your time!
Your Master Mindsmith,
