Cosplay Open Sew

cosplay August Event

Oh no! Convention is a few weeks away and I FINALLY figured out who I want to cosplay, but I have no idea how to add this character’s specific accent, create that look, or can’t wrack up the motivation to get started or finish by myself!

If this sounds like you, then come to our Aurora store every Saturday in August for open sew from 4:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. Feel free to bring whatever cosplay you’re working on and get some sewing help to get your costume to where you’d like it to be, or just to talk to other cosplayers and freak out during crunch time together for the next convention!

Required Materials

  • Cleaning Brush
  • Measuring tape
  • Magnetic pin holders
  • Pins
  • Wonder Clips
  • Rotary cutter
  • Rotary mat
  • Circular ruler
  • Needles
  • Decorative thread
  • Embellishment applique patterns
  • Bobbin saver
  • Specialty feet.

You must bring well-working machine (Including power cord, foot control, necessary presser feet, thread, and other necessary notions), measuring tape, and scissors, and project you’re working on.

We have some beautiful products from Floriani that can add that extra “sparkle” to your costume. Check out our previous blog, Sew Much Cosplay, for more details on this line of products.

The cost is $20/session. Be sure to register for the open sew, as if we don’t have sign-ups ahead of time, we can’t host the event.
