Band: Violets and Viruses
Reflecting on humanity's tendencies to dislocate itself from truth, Violets and Viruses creates an opening to the forgotten vision through expressive melodies and lyrical content. Formed in the autumn of 2008, the band's work often alludes to complex themes of beauty and anguish so prevalent in mankind.

In January, MPEG (Musical Production and Entertainment Group) was organizing a concert and it was Bryan, vice president of MPEG which had organized the show, as well as audition the bands.
One of the bands that Bryan and Heena auditioned had Tyson on drums, Alfred on bass, and Karen on keyboard: Sidelines.
During the Unleashed 101 concert, Kryptonite and Sidelines talked backstage with visions of a new band.
A while after Unleashed 101, Shohei finished University and returned to Japan while Harry went to Taiwan for a visit.
The end result wasn't a completely new band, but rather a new version of an old band: Kryptonite.

Have you ever wanted to make armor, accessories, even model kits out of plastic? You can. The Secret? Vacuum forming! Vacuum forming is the process of heating plastic and forming it over a mould to make what you want. It's easy, it's fast, and all it requires are common household items that almost everyone owns. The Forge of Hephaestus is doing a seminar to teach you how to do this yourself, at home, at a reasonable cost, and, *in almost any scale*. You don't need a $10K rig and a diploma - all you need is some ingenuity and some patience and you are on your way to making the stuff of your cosplay dreams.
