So... Alena is a rabid Scarlet Pimpernel fangirl. By rabid, I mean she has read all 17 of the Scarlet Pimpernel books written by Baroness Orczy (and amassed quite a respectable collection of early editions of Orczy's works), watched every extant film and television version, seen the Broadway musical so many times she's lost count, has a laminated membership card for the League of the Scarlet Pimpernel, and even has postcards and programs from the original 1905 stage play hanging on her walls. So when the Takarazuka Revue (a famous all-female theatre troupe in Japan) tackled Frank Wildhorn's hit Broadway musical The Scarlet Pimpernel, there was no question that this costume set was happening. And -- since this was one of Alena's great passions in life -- it
Our first terra cotta infantryman was commissioned by the Children's Museum of Indianapolis for the National Geographic Treasures of the Earth exhibit, a permanent wing which includes replicas and interactive displays of the terra cotta warriors from Xi'an, China.

"Candyfloss" Photo Comic Laura and Alena were making an appearance at a library summer reading program kickoff event. After lamenting that being surrounded by small children didn't really allow for Jack to be appropriately in character, they started taking silly selfies with some cotton candy (which Jack naturally had to flirt with, since he couldn't interact with the crowd in his usual manner). Later, looking over the photos, Alena began to envision a script to tie the pictures together... whence this little comic. Alena as Captain
