Check out this fun, free event on crafting costumes! Need help on a current project? Not sure what materials to use for a prop or armor? Bring your questions and knowledge to MindCraft this Saturday January 26th, 2013.
Yes, I am posting this the day before the event, but if you can make it, come! There are so many great panelists coming and at a great location too. It is pretty much eight hours of costuming crafting and learning. I will be hosting a panel at noon, "Props like a Pro." From there the day gets even better as the panels go on. Armor making, molding and casting, and even mascot costuming tips.
I will also be attempting to film some of the panels and the activities going on. If the filming goes alright I will be posting the videos for those who missed out on the fun within the next few weeks. Check back here for updates and an event review!
