October at Schaefer Library was a madhouse of activity. Teens decorated their Teen Space for Halloween, made stuff with the 3D Printer, and took pumpkin decorating to new heights!

Encino Teens had a spooktacular October with tons of Halloween themed snacks, crafts, and watchable things. Teen Club was our most festive program with teens painting pumpkins, coloring calaveras, making perler bead witches, pumpkins, and cats, watching  It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown (just as good as we remembered from childhood BTW) and making caramel apples. Plus we celebrate Teen Read Week by re-painting the stock poster and we like it a lottttttt more now.  Whew! So much holiday-ness! In other news anime club finished Overlord and Knight’s & Magic and started the simulcast of Kino’s Journey- the Beautiful World. Stay tuned for more about the last one—we’re really enjoying it so far.

Ever spent two hours on a game of Risk? Well Encino teens did this month in our monthly edition of Teen Board Gaming. World domination was sought by all and in the end we decided to carve up the world and each keep a piece (kinda fair right?- PS> I got Europe!). Finally, we watched Wonder Woman herself kick some bad guy butt on the big screen in our Teen Screen program and of course we had more super smash battles with friends cuz it’s our like our favorite video game.

Woah! I almost forgot! Check the last post to see how Encino teens seriously rocked it at our first annual Encino Cosplay Con!! It was the coolest seeing all of our amazing teens (plus a lot of new ones!) come out in their epic cosplays and battle in out in our lipsync competition and costume contest. Thank you to everyone who came out for this!

Join us in November for more exciting stuff including some web-flinging fun with Spider-Man:Homecoming, shrinky dink making, and lots of anime watching!  ❤ Julia

Encino Cosplay Con!

On October 21st Encino hosted our first annual Cosplay Con! It was SO much fun. We had over 80 teens and adults come out in such amazing costumes with props, makeup, wigs, and tons of other accessories. Our lipsync battle saw eight competitors lipsync their hearts out for prizes and a sparkly trophy with songs spanning many genres and fandoms. On the crafty side we had epic button making, balloon animals, and a huge collaborate canvas that got covered with doodles. Photo ops abounded with our green screen, cardboard cutouts, tardis, and GoT throne. Finally we had a great turn out for our costume contest which pitted over 15 cosplayers against each other in costume domination. Congrats to all our winners and participants and a special thanks to our Friends of Encino Library, our judges, and all of the businesses that contributed to our con. Come see us next year for even more cosplay fun!!!

September @ Encino

What’s up September/Fall/Autumn! Encino Teens have had a spectacular September with the arrival of a new program and the continuation of some oldies but goodies. Our inaugural teen board gaming (a program made by and for Encino Teens!) kicked off this month with gamers playing clue, emoji uno, and the resistance. We had so much fun guessing who was a spy and who was a part of the resistance. Fun fact- it’s hard to keep a straight face during this game :O

 Teen club this month was action packed and filled with varied gaming and craftiness. We kept up our perler bead artistry and made some cool stuff with modeling clay. Encino Teens had a special visit from *BABY GROOT* for teen screen this month!! Who came all the way from somewhere in the nine realms to watch himself kick some butt on the big screen in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

September’s weekly anime club has been keeping the drama and comedy high with screenings of Gurren Lagann and Punchline. And because we know you care about our snack game — we also managed to munch on some cookies and candy this month as well as slurp some smoothies.

Come join us in October for Halloween inspired programs and our epic ENCINO COSPLAY CON happening on Saturday, October 21st from 2 to 5. Wear your best costume, come hang out with fellow cosplayers, win prizes and make some crafts!
