"Have you ever wanted to design costumes? Make your own original cosplay designs? Maybe just get an industry professional's hot takes on cosplay? Come listen and chat with a professional costume designer about theatrical design and how it can help with your own cosplay process." This panel is focused mostly on discussion of design process rather than sewing/crafting techniques. I talk about the process of theatrical costume design, the fundamentals of how to think about design like a costume designer, and the overlap between theatrical design and cosplay and how to use that overlap to improve cosplay costume design. Also just some general funny anecdotes of my experience as both a professional costume designer and cosplayer.
