LACE Welcomes April Gloria!

LACE is excited to welcome back the gorgeous April Gloria to the mhk!

April Gloria is a cosplayer and Twitch streamer native to New Jersey, but currently living in Kansas. She grew up expressing herself creatively whether it be drawing, painting, hair and makeup styling, sewing, or other forms of crafting. In 2013 she decided to give cosplay a try and hasn’t looked back since. She is mostly drawn to video game characters and has over 30 costumes under her belt. April also streams the creation of her costumes on Twitch to give an inside look at the process and to build relationships with fans of her work. April’s specialties include painting and weathering fabrics and armor, and has taught herself to create patterns for sewing garments. She loves to chat with anyone who’s interested in learning more about techniques, materials, or cosplay in general.

Thank You IBOTSKS for Sponsoring LACE!

Thank you IBOTSKS for sponsoring LACE! We love our community support for our show!

Here’s a little about IBOTSKS –
We are IBOT –Iron Brothers of Topeka or IBOT for short. We are three brothers who bring fantasy to reality with our large wearable sculptures. Although we have full time jobs, children and family lives, we find time to imagine, build, and share our creations. Chris, the perfectionist and youngest brother, came up through the ranks of the 501st Legion, a world-wide Star Wars costuming organization. Mike, the mechanic and middle brother, always dreamed about having a fully functioning Iron Man suit. Neal, the adventurer and oldest brother, came about through the SCA or the Society of Creative Anachronism, a medieval fighting and arts group.

We have formal education in art, drafting, computer graphic design, mechanics, and business. However, what started out as individual efforts has now escalated into a collaborative effort that includes three generations of our family from our eighty some year old parents, our significant others and our children. Other families have picnics in the park, we have building parties and go to comic conventions. The family that cosplays together has more fun!
