While we suffer through this latest batch of horrendous weather, it is encouraging to remember that we are only two months away from the start of convention season. Naka-Kon is right around the corner, the weekend after OCD. Then April promises to be a very busy month: Willycon, Constellation, Demicon, not to mention Free Comic Book Day. So if looks like it's time to start thinking about your costuming wardrobe.
On Saturday February 12th we have just the event to help jump start you into a new costume or finish that cosplay character you have been working on. The Omaha Costuming Day (OCD)will have several workshops to give even the novice costumer something to wear at their next convention. Be it our Cat Ears & Tails workshop, our Headdress workshop, our Non-Sewn costume class, our Lord of the Rings costuming seminar, or build a prop in our Steampunk gun detailing workshop. Ww also have sessions on building a Duct-Tape Dummy to help you model your new design and a Presentation class to help you really impress the judges as you present your costume.
We will also have a specialist available to give you one-on-one help with whatever project you are working on. With sewing machines available to get it moving forward.
There is no site fee for this event. We will only be asking a small materials fee for some of the workshops to cover the cost of the supplies you will use. But then you will have something to take with you for that next convention.
So join us at the W. Dale Clark Library - 215 South 15th Street in Downtown Omaha. Meet lots of other people interested in costuming/cosplay and learn some new skills. It will be a fun day.
