LAist Interview: Michele Morrow from the Foam Weapon League

LAist relies on your reader support.
Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.

I've been obsessed with the concept since I clicked on a Facebook link to the first round of photos; if you're not at least curious about the goings on of the recently instituted Foam Weapon League, perhaps a pulse-check is in order. Brought to life by Scream Queen and artist Michele Morrow and friends, FWL is Dungeons & Dragons on steroids with a side of Civil War Reenactment thrown in for good measure. Booze, bands, boobs, and (fake) blood abound, resulting in the most legal fun you've had in a while. Oh, and the fighting, as their website warns, is indeed REAL (even if the weapons and blood aren't) so leave the white t-shirt at home.
