We are thrilled to chat with Clarissa Thorne, creator of the geek crafting book, A Geek’s Guide to Cross-Stitch: Journeys in Space, published through Fanbase Press. Today, you’ll get a glimpse into the creative process behind this book and how being a parent might’ve impacted Clarissa’s special journey to starting and completing this project.
If you can’t wrap your head around another new year just yet, let’s take a moment to look back at some incredible 2018 achievements in one of our favorite subjects: space.
Avengers: Infinity War. San Diego Comic-Con. The International Space Station. Star Wars: The Clone Wars.
It’s been 15 years since the release of The Lord of the Rings (LOTR): The Return of the King, and after 15 years, I am still utterly fascinated with Aragorn. This character, among a sea of fantastic characters in LOTR, is one of the greatest movie characters of all time in the greatest trilogy ever. Putting the debate of the greatest trilogy aside for another time, I want to focus on the hero – one parents will be proud for their kids to emulate in their future years.
When I finished reading and reviewing Shards: Volume 1, I was eagerly ready for more content from the creators of In Hiatus Studios. Getting my hands on a digital copy of the second anthology was as exciting as my first read of Volume 1, and the wait was well worth it.
As the holiday season fills our houses with bright lights, colorful decorations, and cheerful music, let’s not forget about some movies that are perfect to watch over the holiday season. Yes, there are classics like Miracle on 34th Street and It’s a Wonderful Life, or you can pick your favorite rendition of A Christmas Carol. Today, let’s take a look at two distinctly different films that have their own place during the winter season.
With Thanksgiving fast approaching, we often find ourselves becoming more introspective, reflecting on the people and things for which we are thankful. As we at Fanbase Press celebrate fandoms, this year, the Fanbase Press staff and contributors have chosen to honor their favorite fandoms, characters, or other elements of geekdom for which they are thankful, and how those areas of geekiness have shaped their lives and values.
As a parent, many times, you’ll find yourself watching TV shows or movies your kids are interested in watching. You might watch shows ahead of time to make sure the content is appropriate for their ages, such as Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Sometimes, in those moments, you will realize you’ve become a fan of something that may already wildly popular, yet it’s brand new to you.
Watching my kids laugh and have fun is a massively satisfying thing. So, when I decided to write an article on playing board games with them, I had a pretty good idea that silliness would ensue – whether from them or me.
Do you love Halloween? As we approach your favorite month of the year, decorations are being put up and some of us (That would be me.) love seeing our kiddos reactions to all of the spooky houses along our route when walking around the neighborhood.
