2018 April/May/June Update:

As you know, most of the year I publish 2 to 3 articles a day.

However, every year during convention season, I take a break from that to go full swing CosPlay.

From early April 2018 to late June 2018, article posting schedule will be sporadic, while CosPlay Season and Convention events are going full swing.

During this time period, you can expect most, possible all new articles to be focused on costume making, CosPlay, and the characters I'm CosPlaying.

UPDATE: It's now divided into 7 pages. The primary page "Meet Avallach" is now over 20,000 words long. At this rate, it'll cross 60,000 long before the costume is finished, and that's not including the other 5 pages. The primary page has now crossed 60,000 89,000 words and counting, the whole set of Avallac'h pages are now more than 200,000 words long, and more then 500 pictures of Avallac'h and his friends have now been uploaded on these pages, plus there are now 400+ hour-long videos f the costume making process as we record live, every second of this insanely elaborate, over the top CosPlay project.

As of May 19, just 29 days to PortCon we are embroidering his blue coat in a countdown against the clock to finish in time for the event, while we pray that The Dazzling Razzberry will be re-weilded back together and drivable in time for PortCon, after it's recent vandalism by Old Orchard Beach's ever growing Ku Klux Klan problem.

There will still be daily updates, but the BULK of the daily updates will be limited to the pages linked here:

  9. PortConMaine 2018
  10. On Being a Handicapped CosPlayer: A Look At Events of PortConMaine 2017 That Resulted In 3 Disabled CosPlayers Getting hurt at The Convention and How These Things Could Have Been Avoided


After PortCon Update:

PortCon 2018 is over... but the making of the Avallac'h CosPlay is not. It is not possible to make a costume as detailed as I'm making in fewer then 400 hours, and only 129 hours went into the simplified first run version you saw at PortCon'18. The complete version will not be seen until PortCon'19

If you want to see this costume in person and watch it's progression onward as I continue to expand it... I'll be wearing it at the monthly Maine Association of CosPlay Enthusiasts (M.A.C.E.) events, throughout 2018 and 2019, you are welcome to join us. The list of current events can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/293470827423558/events/ This list is updated monthly, so be sure to check back often to find all the dates, locations, and details of events.



Twighlight Manor Library

"I thought the Twighlight Manor Library, was a fictional place, but you said you owned it. Is it real?"

Yes, The Twighlight Manor Library is a real place. It is in Old Orchard Beach Maine, and the fictional library was based on the real one. It was founded in 1983.

The last time we cataloged our collection was in February 2001, and at that point our card catalog indexed 12,000 books (fiction and non-fiction).

The collection continues to grow, added to at a rate of 20 books a week (about 1,000 books a year) from 2001, until 2012. In spring of 2012 the library received a grant allowing it to add to it's collection at a rate of 200 to 800 books per month, since that time.

In addition to this main circulating collection there is also a non-circulating comic book collection which is home to the world's second largest Disney Duck collection.

"How can I check out books from the Twighlight Manor Library?"

The Twighlight Manor Library is not currently open to the general public. As you know a bomb destroyed much of our property in October 2006 and resulted in $3million in medical bills.

The long term effect of which is the library's entire collection has been put in storage. Only very limited people have access to the collection, until such time as we are able to house them in a building again. Our current plans are to buy an old abandoned hospital (in Southern Maine) and house the collection there. There are many road blocks to that goal, which we are currently in the process of overcoming.
