Clothes make the man. But what about the man who makes the clothes? ... In this case, for characters in the colorful, uber-dramatic world of Mexican freestyle wrestling. Manuel Quiroz is a well-known mask and gear maker for fighters across the globe, many in L.A.'s popular lucha libre circuit. His journey to be known as the "best of the best" as he puts it, is as finely detailed and at times dramatic as a character plot constructed for the very fighters he clothes. When he was an aimless teenager in Aguascalientes, Mexico, Quiroz's curiosity led him to toy around with his mother's sewing machine.

Thank you for the interesting article on Peter Jackson and "The Lord of the Rings" ("A Pair of Ring Masters," Dec. 8). However, Lady Galadriel's ring, Nenya, was not made by Sauron. It, like the other two rings of the Elves, was made by the Elven King Celebrimbor and the master craftsmen of Eregion. If Sauron were to obtain the One Ring, then those rings would be revealed to him, and all that were wrought by the Elves using the rings ruined. The Nine Rings of men were made by Sauron and given to men, whom he enthralled.

Los Angeles' two greatest cultural disappointments of the past three decades may have been the failure of the Olympic Arts Festival in 1984 to mount director Robert Wilson's eight-hour international operatic epic, "the CIVIL warS" and the Music Center's inadequate support in 2000 of Frank Gehry's grand plan to renovate and urbanize the facility and reshape downtown's civic center in the process. All, though, is not lost. As part of Minimalist Jukebox on Thursday night, the Los Angeles Philharmonic reunited those two transformative artistic visions by presenting Philip Glass' contribution to "the CIVIL warS," known as the Rome section, in Gehry's successful contribution to the Music Center, Walt Disney Concert Hall.

Get a close-up look at Saturn and its spectacular rings this weekend, and you won't need special eclipse glasses to see them. Telescopes at the Griffith Observatory in Griffith Park will be pointed at Saturn because it's one of the brightest things in the night sky at the moment. "Mars and Saturn are nearly twins in brightness this week," the observatory's Sky Report says. Saturn also made news this week after the Cassini spacecraft found evidence of large methane lakes on its moon Titan.

I was extremely disappointed with the article "Hang Time" (by Nicole LaPorte, Aug. 28). This was an opportunity to show the diversity and camaraderie of the Los Angeles community. You do not get that feeling from the piece or the accompanying photos. There's another set of rings (referred to as "kids") at Santa Monica beach that is far more interesting. Here you will hear a cacophony of languages being spoken. "Action," an African American, is the true godfather of the rings. And this is where the women and girls participate.

A former security guard at a Lakers practice facility pleaded no contest Friday to stealing three of the team's championship rings and hundreds of dollars of gift cards, the L.A. County district attorney's office said. Mejía Eddie Monterroso, 23, entered his plea to grand theft of personal property and was sentenced to 180 days in county jail and three years' probation. He was also ordered to pay almost $14,000 in restitution. Prosecutors said Monterroso stole the property while he worked the night shift between Oct. 24 and Dec. 5, 2013.

California lawmakers adopted  a resolution  Monday in support of beach fire rings as a California tradition, according to a news release from the office of the resolution's author, Assemblyman Travis Allen (R-Huntington Beach). The action came as officials and residents throughout Southern California continued to debate a ban on beach fires proposed by regional air quality regulators, which has split those concerned about negative health effects for those living near the fires and those fighting to keep the tradition alive.

Call it the Great Easter Egg Smackdown of 2014. Every time I write about hard-boiled eggs, I seem to get a flood of mail telling me, essentially, "You're an idiot, and you're doing it all wrong. " So this year I threw down the gauntlet. On our Daily Dish blog and on social media, I posted a challenge to all those hard-boiled naysayers: You tell me how you do it, and we'll give it a try. Not to get all smug, but my method won out again. Though I did pick up a couple of refinements along the way. (None of which is to say, however, that I am not an idiot; just that I can boil an egg.)

The moons that orbit Saturn may be increasing by one -- an icy, pint-sized object that astronomers have named “Peggy.” NASA's Cassini spacecraft has spotted evidence that a mysterious object measuring perhaps half a mile across is disturbing the outer edge of Saturn's large, bright A ring. The object's gravity seems to have roughed up the ring's usually smooth profile. PHOTOS: Amazing close-ups of moons As a result, a stretch of the A ring that measures 750 miles long and 6 miles wide is now about 20% brighter than it would typically appear.

Coldplay rocker Chris Martin didn't have his wedding ring on at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Awards on Thursday night, but that might be the only sign that his "conscious uncoupling" from Gwyneth Paltrow is really a breakup.  After sealing their split oddly with a family vacation to the Bahamas, the two have since ventured out together looking "lovey-dovey," according to a  People  source. Martin and Paltrow reportedly held hands, laughed and joked while attending Robert Downey Jr.'s birthday party with their children, Apple and Moses, on Sunday.  Partygoers were surprised by the affectionate display to the point that the source said it wouldn't be a surprise "if a report came out in a couple of weeks that they are back together.

Shortly after assuming the helm as the fourth director of the Museum of Contemporary Art last month, Philippe Vergne visited the Los Angeles Times to meet with editors and writers. Still in the beginning stage of absorbing MOCA's history and formulating his mission, he didn't have a great deal to share about his plans. But when asked whether he thought performance, a currently disregarded part of the museum's founding mission, was important, Vergne answered that he wouldn't call it important.

Slowly they return, the clean-shaven, square-jawed heroes of yore, displaced for so many years now by their darker, more intricately conflicted brethren - the detectives with one foot on either side of the law, the pill-popping acerbic doctors and philandering, power-mad family men. The broadcast networks pivoted first; the leads of shows like NBC's "Grimm," Fox's "Sleepy Hollow" and ABC's "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. " are good guys through and through. Now AMC, the fledgling powerhouse that branded itself with the moral ambiguity of "Mad Men" and "Breaking Bad," and the bleak and ever-shifting convictions of "The Walking Dead," is entering the straight-up hero business.

Saturn's rings are not just beautiful to look at; it turns out they are also responsible for rain falling on the planet.  Using data collected from the Keck Observatory in Hawaii, scientists found that the amount of "ring rain"--when water particles fall from Saturn's rings onto the planet below--is significantly more than previously thought, and may be responsible for the pattern of dark bands or shadows that appear on the planet's surface....

RICHMOND, Va. - Seth Numrich can't quite get a straight answer. In character as Ben Tallmadge, the leader of a group of Revolutionary War spies known as the Culper Ring and a central character in the new AMC drama "Turn," he is interrogating a ragged-looking background player whose toes have been painted black to mimic frostbite. The unfortunate man is a scout who has failed to relay crucial information to Tallmadge and fellow spy Caleb Brewster (Daniel Henshall), who are working on behalf of Gen. George Washington, and his explanation for the botched mission is suspicious at best: He claims he fell in the river because he was blinded by fog. "It's very difficult to gather intelligence when we possess so little of it," says a frustrated Tallmadge, exiting a makeshift hospital tent that, on camera, appears situated in a dense thicket of woods but is actually inside a giant converted warehouse.

An investigation into a baggage theft operation at Los Angeles International Airport has grown rapidly, and authorities now say as many as 25 baggage handler may ultimately be detained in the case. Police said the theft operation -- probably one of the biggest in LAX history -- preyed on travelers and resulted in the theft of “thousands upon thousands of dollars” in electronics, jewelry and other items from luggage as it moved through the airport. So far, six baggage handlers have been arrested and eight others detained in the case.
