You can call me Z. ^^ I am starting a cosplay "club" for people interested in working on their projects with others and meeting like-minded people across the Delaware Valley/Tri-State area. Me and my husband own a fabric shop on 4th street's "Fabric Row" in Philadelphia, PA. (www.facebook.com/HowardsStore
) Our shop is also a functioning workroom. We specialize in home decor and window treatments. Attendees will have tools, sewing machines and other supplies at their disposal. Fabric Row is also an awesome place for cosplayers, costume makers and fans of fabric. So aside from providing space and tools for working on projects, you get a whole block to pick up anything you may need.
Besides myself I have a wonderful staff, consisting of friends and acquaintances. One staff member is known for his "INSANE" cosplays and props. (https://www.facebook.com/InsaneCosplayer?ref=tn_tnmn
) We have plans to have props demonstrations perhaps once a month.
Plans are to open our space for these project meetings spring of this year (2013). Held on Fridays in the afternoon hours, and their will be a small fee. We're still contemplating whether this will be weekly or twice a month. Visit and like our facebook page to keep up with updates! We appreciate any support as well for anyone who spreads the word.
