Juxtapose: A Cosplay Story has its cosplayers!

In addition to my own crafting and cosplay, I’m currently producing a documentary focused on three Denver-area cosplayers.  I wanted to do this because there’s just SO much talent and passion in the mountain region that tends to get skipped over just because of the inconvenient location – despite the fact that we have one of the biggest comic cons in the country happening in June!

The cosplay contest – aka the Shindig – at Denver Comic Con will be the terminus of our project as we follow three cosplayers on their journey there.  From concept to competition, I wanted to capture what the creation process is like in our unique and wonderful community.

The cosplayers who are participating have just been announced at the Juxtapose Facebook page, and you can keep up with the action there, at the website, or on Twitter.

Millionaire’s Bacon… Delicious times a thousand. I mean, a million!

So when husband and I discovered the phenomenon known as Millionaire’s Bacon, we knew we had to try it.  I mean, it has everyone’s favorite things – sugar, salt, and spice.  It’s the kind of thing you want to eat when you want ALL THE FLAVORS and can ignore the calories.  Or are at least willing to ignore them.

I chose to forgo measuring because who does that anyway and just piled my bacon with brown sugar, freshly cracked black pepper, and red pepper (alas, I did not have cayenne pepper in the house, which was tragic but red pepper was acceptable).  In the oven for 45 minutes at 350 degrees and we were treated to a gooey, sweet-and-savory delight for our breakfast-for-dinner.  Laying deliciously next to the eggs and homemade toast, there was very little argument before we decided this was the best breakfast ever.  For dinner.

For Denver diners, if you’re interested in something similar, try the Steubie Snacks at Steuben’s in Uptown.  Made with pork belly instead of bacon, you still get a delightful and sinful treat.
