This episode will be the first in a series. The series will start in a few weeks as we get through some old episodes, but we wanted to get some hype going and get questions brewing about cosplay contests. This first episode covers some basics and questions/answers from cosplayers in our community. Cosplay contests are the best with friends! Pannon as Prince Sidon, Momma Sammu as Mipha, VFire as Link, and le Sadee We hope this summary episode gives everyone a good idea of how to prep for a contest and what to expect if you have never heard of one before. Thank you for listening. We are loving the feedback and Horror Stories. You all rock! - The Stitch and Seam Team

Just how old is this hobby? Explore the roots of Cosplay with Pannon and VFire! Photos mentioned in the podcast are shown below. It really is inspiring! Forrest Ackerman and Myrtle Douglas. Photo by Ted Carnell First costume at a convention ever - "Futuristic Spaceman!"  Can't deny that creating original designs is not only a hard task, but an incredibly fun one too. I love Myrtle Douglas's creative spirit and design. Olge Ley and her daughter (1967 WorldCon) Considered one of the best crafters of her time. As always, thank you lovely listeners and readers.
