Friday Fix-n-Finish Room: ** NEW for 2019 ** Still need to put the finishing touch on your Hall or Masquerade Costume? Join us in our new Friday Fix-N-Finish workspace!
Come as You Are – or As You’d Like to Be!: The intersection of costuming & writing: Does it help for writers (and fans) to walk a mile in the literal shoes (and other clothing) of their characters? To handle the props and walk the streets their characters encounter in daily life? Writers on the panel can dress up; and we invite anyone interested in costuming – or wearing a hall costume — to come and share why they chose this costume, character or period, and how wearing a costume makes them feel.
Cositivity (Cosplay + Positivity): There’s a lot of negativity in the costuming and cosplay community. This panel discusses how to deal with negative comments and reactions and turn them into positivity.
Cosplay for Cause: Many cosplay groups and individuals do charity work: visiting hospitals, appearing at events, raising money for various causes. This panel considers the pros and cons of it and important information people should know before getting involved.
Much more coming soon…
