Some of the cosplayers at the Cosplay: Let’s Get Serious panel were nice enough to stick around for a group photo with our panelists! Thanks, everyone. Picture by Lawrence Brenner.
Wow! We’re back from a whirlwind trip to San Diego Comic Con, where we participated in the “Cosplay: Let’s Get Serious” panel with Kelly Cercone (Designer of Anachronism in Action and creator of the Shapeshifter and Laced patterns for Cosplay by McCalls) as well as Carrie Wood and Mark Huesman from the Overstreet Guide to Cosplay. The panel was moderated by Ed Catto.
INTREPID and NOTCHED patterns now available from Cosplay by McCall’s
New patterns today! We’re delighted to announce the release of NOTCHED and INTREPID, two versatile patterns that you can adapt, alter, and remix to create a whole range of characters.
Intrepid has a whole set of rugged pieces, including a top, tunic, pants, overskirt, belt, and cuffs with lacing details and suggestions for working with suede and faux suede. Perfect for warriors, adventurers, apocalyptic fashion, and more!
Notched is a classic fully lined double-breasted coat with welt pockets and two-piece sleeves, a back belt and vent, plain or bound edges, and tips for sewing with wool. Great for a whole range of characters, and a fun challenge for anyone who wants to try their hand at tailoring.
Get them both right now at Cosplay by McCall’s!
