We're Meeting Tonight!

Hello everyone! We’re having a general meeting tonight at 7:30 PM at the space. The agenda is here. If you were curious about Hacksburg but didn’t know where to start, tonight’s the night to stop by!

As a reminder, on Saturday, April 8, from 1-4 PM, we’ll be having a prop building class at the space! Join local cosplayers Will Tilson and Cameron Woodruff as they show you how to make awesome props for your next costume! The fee is $5 for students and members, $10 for nonmembers. You will also need a prop to build from; we will have a few available for purchase.
