Solstice Trivia!

VFire never dropped her trivia in the episode so here is your fun solstice fact of the day!

"The Winter Solstice is the shortest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere of our planet. For the Southern Hemisphere it is the longest day of the year! Not that the we have more or less than 24 hours, but the time the sun is out during that 24 hours changes with our seasons... and is part of the reason for our seasons!" - VFire's nerdy space trivia

Also here is her horrible but fun Cosplay Before Christmas story VFire made when she was being silly one year with friends. Link takes you to Deviantart. Enjoy!

How to Make Auron's Blade - The Cosplay Armory

As promised, James of the Cosplay Armory shares his knowledge on how to make Auron's Katana from the game, Final Fantasy X. I have been very excited for this as I followed his page as he worked on the blade. I hope you enjoy it! - VFire


Auron's Katana Build by James

A note before I start. I will be mentioning the use of several machines that I have the luxury of having in my shop that I am well aware not everyone has. This project is definitely easier with them than without but everything I describe can be done without them or with simpler tools. I will also include steps that I do that are not necessary in parenthesis()

I was commissioned to build the Auron Katana by Lolita Zombie Cosplay and knew immediately that I wanted it to be light, yet durable.

Podcast Ep. 003 - Nihon Matsuri and the Cosplay Judges

This is our first live episode with a live audience... of about 5 people, but it still counts! Pannon and VFire are joined by Rennagade and Tatsue Cosplay as judges for the Nihon Matsuri Cosplay contest. Huzzah for guest episodes! (EDIT: Episode has been updated with bloopers at the end.)


The Japanese Festival, Nihon Matsuri, celebrates Japanese culture from old to new traditions and activities. It is a really fun experience and incredibly educational as it shows how much the Japanese community has had an effect on downtown Salt Lake City.
