    This year gonna be my first time in creating costume for a convention. I'm very excited about it. But soon I realized that the only sewing machine that I have it's my mom's old machine, so I want to buy a new one, but I don't know which one to choose. If there are any recommendations, you are more than welcome.

    MY FRIEND, who really sews for money, on the side, has sewn various pirate costumes with beautiful fabrics; I saw them, they were VERY FABULOUS,HAH. Good home sewers can do wonders with costuming. She showed me a bridal costume she was sewing for a wedding ,and I consider that "a costume", modern and detailed in cream .I think you should be a very good sewer to make plausible adult costumes.

    Made a costume for a pal of a pal for a Comic Con; now I am not into this realm of things, they brought me some fabrics, and a couple of downloaded pics of the character, plus a commercial pattern that was 'sort of similar'. Thank goodness I researched the costume in the original series some more; the fancy lapels became a massive collar on the back; not shown or hinted at in the pics they gave me. Luckily they did find some Pleather that was "Right" and digging in my stash I found the right shades for the Gown, the Shirt, and the Trousers. Altogether it was ""INTERESTING""; not something I'd want to do again, as the thanks I got were scant. But I have been making costumes since my student days in the 1960's for myself, and more recently for my daughter and son, so I do have more than an average idea of how to fudge things!
