The first half of our show we will be interviewing Garage FX. The Second half we will be talking to the crew at Comic & Media Expo 2014. Garage FX Our two related clans, the Caldwells and the Fowers, have been creating costumes for ourselves, our kids, and others for decades. The majority of that art form is inspired by comics and the notion of a Hero or Heroine. Most everyone wants to be a Hero to someone. So, why not get the chance to dress up like one every once in a while? We wanted to make sure anyone could have that chance so we started "Garage FX". The concept is this: Teach others how to simply make great Cosplay (Costume Play) works of art using everyday items you can find in your garage or hardware store. Since we began this effort, we have created projects from Venom to Predator to Spawn (in many forms). Inspired by huge demand at past comic conventions our latest efforts have been making movie-prop worthy Halo Spartan Armor as well as those pizza eating Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. All pieces are made from the foam floor mats you step on in your garage, old plastic buckets, pool floats, PVC pipe, burlap bags, Elmer's glue, chicken wire, packing Styrofoam and more. For the more intense student we even teach how to make your own patterns, sew elaborate costumes and cast latex and silicon masks and props. We love what we do at Garage FX! Feel free to stop by our web page to learn for free how to make something from nearly nothing or come to one of our weekly “Make-and-Takes” workshops here in the Phoenix Valley.
