Pattern giant McCall’s introduces blog and pattern line geared towards cosplayers.
“Welcome! We’re so, so excited to introduce Cosplay by McCall’s, the new cosplay sewing site from the McCall Pattern Company. We want to bring you the very best in patterns, sewing tips, and more, whether you’re making bodysuits or tailcoats, ball gowns or capes. Superheroes and sorcerers and magical girls, beginners and veteran stitchers alike are all welcome here.
We’re thrilled to see how cosplay has taken off over the last several years, because it means more and more people are rolling out fabric and firing up their sewing machines. We may be newcomers to the cosplay world, but we’ve been sewing for quite a while (try over a hundred years!) and there’s nothing we like better than meeting creative people who are sewing interesting things.
Initially we’ll be offering a selection of patterns hand-picked for the cosplay audience, so you can quickly and easily find the pieces you need for your project. Over the next few months we’ll be building on that, to provide a more comprehensive selection of the pieces cosplayers need. Eventually we want to become your one-stop cosplay sewing nexus, bringing you everything you need to make your dream come to life. Keep an eye on this space, because we’ve got lots of announcements coming right up.
Here on the blog we’ll also talk about choosing patterns and materials, construction and embellishment techniques, and what we’re working on. We’ll keep you posted on our convention appearances, and on new additions to the store. We want to be the best resource for you that we possibly can, so tell us what you need! Don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have questions, ideas, comments, or just want to show us what you’ve made.”
