Hero's Closet

Sewing for Cosplay and Costuming
Gillian Conahan


The Hero's Closet is a guide to creating unique and fantastical sewn ensembles offering detailed, step-by-step instructions that cover the basics of sewing costumes (which often require skills not found in standard sewing guides) to help even the novice sewists create the costumes of their dreams.

Gillian Conahan walks readers through finding inspiration online and through their fandom; shares insight into translating character art into real-world garments; and offers advice on pattern selection, alterations, fabrics and embellishment techniques.

The book also features 11 original step-by-step basic patterns – such as jumpsuits, jackets and pants – with ideas for mixing and matching these basics to create costumes of all styles, including superheroes, pirates, elves, school girls and adventurers.
