July 22 2010 Costuming Newsletter

Hi there! Hope you're having a fantastic week.

I've been frantically making Medieval boots for a 2-week long reenactment my family is going to in a few days. There's leather everywhere! But I'm getting much better at fitting and finishing the edges thanks to a lesson from our local cobbler/shoe-repair guy. It just goes to show you, sometimes the pros are thrilled to talk shop with someone interested in learning.

Thought for the day: What resources do you have locally who could help you improve an aspect of your costuming? A cobbler? A tailor? A theatrical special effects artist? Why not pay them a visit and ask a few questions?

Forum News: Want to see the cutest/weirdest costume mash-up ever? Head to the forum and check out Darth Princess.

Well, gotta get back to my boots. The glue should be about dry now, which means it's time to nail on the soles.

Cheers, Julie
