We all survived the holidays, as well as the Thomas Fire. It was amazing to see our whole town pull together, and sobering to see how much was lost. We’re a strong community, and, you know, not broken.
Maybe it’s more appropriate to say we went through this, and came out on the other side.
We… leave no friend behind, and that means you?
I’ll try to stop shoehorning lyrics into this post now.
Anyway, check out this amazing Lyric Video that Claire Flores put together! (You already know her design work, but have you seen her motion graphics? Well, get on that!)
Huge thanks to Gaslight Gathering for sponsoring this video during the Kickstarter campaign.

The Velveteen Band loves cosplay. That should go without saying; just look at us!
Cosplayers inspire us by doing something we’ve always strived for: they envision a world more exciting or colorful than our own, and then physically embody it so the rest of us can see what they’re looking at, and what we’ve been missing.
This became clear to us while filming our 2014 Comic-Con video. In particular, the Doctor Who cosplayers stood out. This is a group that celebrates intellect over violence, creativity in all things, and the richness and diversity of other cultures. Rock on!
So, when we went back this year, we wanted to do something a little special for them…
