Costume-Con 28

We're going up to Milwaukee, baby!

Anyway, our first CC in two years, and we're going to make it great!

Let's start our discussion now about CC 28.

We're doing both f&sf and historical masquerades. It's our first time entering a CC masquerade, so it should be exciting.

I'm not sure what I'm doing yet; I'm sure there'll be a few Folio designs that tempt me, and I have two ideas to choose between for the Historical. Had big plans for the F&SF but they will depend on the group leader's availability (currently up in the air) so we'll have to see.

This will be my first CC! I am very excited. I know I want to participate in the single pattern contest, but otherwise I don't know what costumes I'm doing yet.

My husband and I are going to do some panels. Anyone have specific requests?

I know for sure we're doing a history of Russian costume panel (for the spy theme).

We'll be there as well and we've even got a room already. We're entering the Historical this time around, unless something happens to change that and we decide to enter F/SF as well, and have been working on our entry since July. We've also got a bunch of new hall costumes that are especially for this one.

Woohoo - we are looking forward to going again
too! If everything works out, this will be our 2nd CC.
Russian costumes sounds pretty cool and I would go to that. Also, how about modern Asian styles or bohemian? Trixie - I hear ya on the form fitting pattern. Maybe u could modify it for a looser look like a long coat version?
Cheers,

Modern Asian - do you mean how their costumes differ from traditional? And which Asian countries are you interested in?
Bohemian? Where's that?

Katrina - are you doing Russian folk costume or what exactly?

I'd be happy to do programming but not sure what people want at this point.

You can certainly modify the patterns however you like, you'll just have to tell the judges how & where you modified it so they can see that you used the pattern.

As for the patterns being only for slim people - not so! A well-tailored tux jacket skims the body & can hide a multitude of sins. As an example, I made the Burda woman's tailcoat for myself for an outfit & I'm certainly not slim.

I'm really looking forward to seeing you again, Trixy - and all my new Canadian friends from last year!!!

Sadly, I wonít be able to make it since Milwaukee is too far away to be feasible for me.

But I did submit the CC28 info to be added to the cosplay.com calendar a while back. Itís up now and can be added your con planner for those who are attending: http://www.cosplay.com/event/1777/

Alas! We'll miss you. But thanks for adding that into the calendar, I'm going to go update mine~.

Our SF/F entry is off to a kickin' start, we've got an idea for Historical but if we don't have time to make it I won't die. The Madison Area Costuming Society has a group plan for the Single Pattern contest. I am SO EXCITED.

I wish I knew what to say about what panels I want to see. I usually find that there's enough of a spread of Things I Don't Know How To Do Yet that I'm never disappointed at the panel offerings - and I still don't feel qualified to run panels at CC level yet. Local cons, yes. But...eh. I want to learn things I don't know, that's all I can say! I know, it's tremendously helpful. Heh.

History of Russian costume, actually, just an overview from Medieval (Mongol-controlled Russia) all the way into military clothing of the 20th century.

Henry thought it sounded fun. I've got a particularly large amount of information about 30s-40s Soviet clothing, oddly enough.
