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 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.
