      • Sewists might have time to make their own costumes! Whether using new fabrics or repurposing textile finds from home or thrift stores. You can also find costume patterns by McCalls, Simplicity and Burda. Fabricland stores carry McCalls and Burda and Butterick. You'll need to look up pattern numbers online via pattern websites, as fabric stores no longer provide catalogues for browsing.
        Halloween is great for cosplayers to wear favourite character outfits outside of anime/sci-fi conventions!
