Guest post – Stylin’ Stacy – Cosplay Costumes

This is a guest post I did for Crafting Con.  Bringing it home for Halloween!


Hello!  I am Stacy and I blog at Stylin’ Stacy.  The costumes I tend to make these days are centered around cosplay characters.  They serve dual purposes as my kids wear them to a convention in the spring and then Halloween in the fall.  I usually have to add cloaks or some such to their fall wearing as Halloween here is rather chilly.

Here are a few of the costumes I have made and some links to more details on them.

Then, here are some random Renaissance costumes I made for them:

These costumes take a lot of time, are expensive, but the kids feel absolutely awesome in them.  I spend months working on these costumes, and just trying to figure out how to make the different pieces.  There is nothing purchased on them, except their shoes.   I make everything, even their weapons.  There is nothing like going to a convention and having people stop them, compliment them and ask to take pictures of how awesome they are.  I get a thrill, too, as their creator!
