Fashion Folio Special Category!
Update by Sarcasm-hime | Published March 20, 2013

The Fashion Folio Competition is of course open and encouraging of all sorts of fashion and designs. Throughout its history, there have often been additional special categories,just for a fun change of pace.

So, in keeping with that, we are happy to announce that Castle Blood will be hosting a special category: Classic Universal Monsters.

Re-imagine one of the characters from any of the classic monster movies (1954 and earlier) in to how you would like to see them.
1st place $50.00 cash prize, 2nd place $25.00 and third place $10.00. Each winner will also receive a Castle Blood goodie bag.

Be sure to mark your entries if you want to be in this part of the competition.Future Fashion Folio Competition

I had so much fun at CostumeCon20 - in Melbourne Australia. It was when I first dipped my toes into costume sewing, something I'd always wanted to do.

Now my long term diary (both social & sewing) is based around which event is happening and what I need to make or update for it.

Sounds FAB-U-LOUS!

You might edit your original post to include the date and location in the first paragraph. It was hard to tell if you were posting about an upcoming event--or something that's a ways off (next spring).

1. I am le ultra disappointed I didn't hear about Costu,eacon until the year AFTER it was held locally. Buuuggghhh.

2. It feels hard to want to go when I know Marty won't be there!!

3......that being said, depending on the location, I may go in 2016.

2014 resolution: keep track of sewn yardage!! I'm subtracting fabric given away from my yardage in. Yeah!
In: 93 yards
Sewn: 69 yards

I'll try anything once :)

Please excuse my typos...sometimes it is harder to go back and edit on mobile than it is worth!

I'd dearly love to participate but all I need in another hobby! I could happily re-design the Bride of Frankenstein's trousseau.

I've quit fighting my inner demons. We're on the same side now.

It's just fabric; we can out-think it.
