THE ENCHANTED ROCK GARDEN 

6445 Lyndale Ave S, Richfield, MN 55423
(612) 866-1140

I don’t usually do reviews, but this place is my absolute favorite place to go when I’m home. The staff are extremely friendly, and really excited to teach you things about rocks and crystals. They can tell you where they came from, how they formed, what they mean in different cultures, and what they were used for, and so on. Really helpful! 

I think I MAYBE covered half the store in these photos. It really doesn’t do them justice. If I had the time, I’d build a light box and photograph some nicer specimens and help them make their website shine, but alas, I had to go home at SOME point. 

Their online presence is at best minimal, so if you want anything, sadly, you have to visit. I can tell you one thing, it’s a really nice attraction. I spend HOURS in this place. EVERYTHING is for sale. One of my favorite pieces, (which SADLY and STUPIDLY I neglected to photograph) is of a fossilized Ammonite Fossil that had opalized. But get this. The opal was DEEP RED. And it’s the size of a salad plate. 

Anyways. 

Upon walking in, it would probably feel like walking in to grandpa’s basement but the organization of this place is incredible. The stones are all carefully managed. There’s even a 50% off section in the very back. The staff are very friendly albeit shy, but also extremely helpful. 

I recommend this to anyone that is in the Minneapolis, MN area! 

I’d sign up to buy and ship things to folks who are interested, but I’m no longer there, haha!

Last weekend I attended Anthrocon and it was pretty darn awesome. While I don’t consider myself a furry, I do enjoy realistic costumes, so I took the raptor mask I made (base/blank by: http://kierstinlapatka.tumblr.com/ ) and some gloves I put together. I ran out of time to make a tail. I figured I’d raptor around the con incognito, because it’s fun to be anonymous. Unfortunately for my planned secrecy, I was unaware that in the interim my last photoset of the raptor mask managed to accumulate around 3,000 notes on Tumblr, and the internet knew that it was mine, so there was no secrecy or anonymity. OH WELL I had fun anyhow! Let me tell you though, it’s super weird to have people come up and shout “I SAW THIS ON TUMBLR" in real life. Uhhh. Hi, Internets.

Thus, I raptored around the con and generally acted like a nuisance. The very best reactions were the ‘muggles’… people on the street. They acted like it was Disneyworld and almost everyone really loved it. My friend managed to get a photo of me peeking into a bar window. Check out the enthusiastic lady on the far right.

I even managed to bump into my eagle mask being worn around the con a few times, which was super exciting to me (the Philippines Eagle mask seen above).

All photo credit goes to my friends Byzil and Hypno.

Here is a short video. I didn’t know she was recording at first so I was holding very still so she could take a still photo. Oops. Also ignore my bad anatomy raptor wrists pose. I had just smacked Dark Natasha in the throat with my claws accidentally and was feeling a bit sheepish. (Natasha was fine, but apparently I was going for the kill. Instincts?) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tJLdFoQOSOg

I am thinking of naming her Kinglet, after the bird that inspired her.

This is pretty darn awesome.  Well done Kierstin and Nam!

If I could puff up like a chickadee, I would, I feel so very special. Nam did an amazing job, and I am completely blessed to be able to say that I assisted with this lovely creation. 

….Also that woman on the far right in the last photo. 

What is she even doing? I wonder what she's SAYING that expression is quite impressive its almost like she's at a haunted house or something incredible

kierstinlapatka:

progress for a wall mount! YES it is COMING! I am just using the foam head and the rest of it as a filler. I’ll be sculpting over the entire surface for something smooth, with slightly more detail. 

Another count, just so I can see how much material might be needed for casting, Anyone interested in a mount on the wall so you can hang your masks on it?

nambroth:

Here’s a few photos I received of the Philippine Eagle mask I made being worn! Base is by http://freakhoundstudios.com/ , I did sculpting/modifying/finishing work.

Thanks to my friend Byzil for sending these to me!

I think…. I will have to try a mask with eyes large like that. Just look at all the expressions. Especially that last shot. I can’t even contain myself, it’s brilliant! UGH bird. BIRD. Look at those eyes! I wonder what diameter they are, they’re amazing.
