We’re familiar with hackerspaces and makerspaces here at Musehack – but a Cosplayspace? Yep, meet Studio Cosplay, which is opening a community workshop in 2015, located in Washington DC. An entire space for a community to cosplay, share ideas, and work together. A fusion of geek skills and geek community? I’m there with an interview.
Let’s meet Liz Gmaz, the president of Studio Cosplay, and one of the people making this dream a reality.
I get mentioned and interviewed in an article on cosplay, careers, and social media!
So the book is edited and just waiting to be formatted, and now it's on to the cover.
The problem of course is that the cover is for an eBook, and the rules are a bit different. The cover's really only going to be seen as an icon or a blurb on a screen people go through, so I'm not going to an artist. If I do a print version, that'll possibly have a new cover, but right now I have to make something that shows up on the eBook stores.
This isn't always as clear as it seems, and it's a strange balance:
- You have to make it clear.
- You have to make it interesting.
- You have to make it readable.
- You have to do it in the small space that will appear on people's screens.
My previous self-made covers have been mixed bags, so I'm sticking with my retro interest and going for abstract, somewhat colorful, and clear text.
Wish me luck. Nine more days.
