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!

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!
