Another New York Comic Con has come and gone. As always, we were delighted and energized by all the amazing costumes! Some of our favorites are below, as well as a recap of our Saturday panel. For even more inspiration, check out the video recap here!
Today we’re getting to know Anna He, a.k.a. Seattle Cosplay, designer of the new Bow & Brine pattern for Cosplay by McCall’s. Anna is a fashion designer and technical designer who has worked for brands including Norma Kamali, Eileen Fisher, and Nordstrom, and was drawn to cosplay through a love of anime and fantasy.
Note: We’re at New York Comic Con this week! Stop by both #840 to browse the web-only Cosplay by McCall’s patterns in person, chat with our sewing experts, and show off your costumes. We’re also participating in the “Cosplay: Let’s Get Serious” panel on Saturday, October 8, at 11:00 a.m. In Room 1A02. We hope to see you there!
Just a quick post to say that if you haven’t seen them yet, the new Sentinel and Renegade patterns are now available! Sentinel includes a tunic, hood, vest, and bracers, and has lots of cool details and embellishments to play with. Renegade includes the underbust corset, halter top, and belt with piping fan lacing detail, and is available in Women’s sizes 18W-32W.
Also, please join our new McCall’s Cosplay Sewing Facebook Group! We want this to be a fun place for you to show off your cosplays and works in process, discuss cosplay sewing, and share tips and ideas. It’s just getting started, so come chat with us!
