Couture Costuming

DragonCon 2012 – Hats and Clay

with one comment

As usual at DragonCon, my roommates all head off to stand in line and see the media stars while I enjoy small panels. Well, Costuming used to be a small panel.  Every year the track is growing.

I still love the new set up and was glad to see it when I got to my first panel Hat Craft. As this is probably the fifth panel I’ve attended over the years with a focus on hats there wasn’t anything stunning to reveal; just lots of good advice, some good sources and encouragement.  A lovely start for the con.

My next panel was over in the Art Track – Polymer Clay for Costumers

The young woman whose name may have been Christi,  had lots of ideas and pretty pictures for ‘faking’ all kinds of things from polymer clay. Samples of jewels, stones, metal, and beautiful enameled pieces were out to see.

Unfortunately, as I’m new to clay, it was a bit over my head. I appreciated the ideas and will try them eventually. If nothing else, I learned that once you use your oven for polymer clays then it shouldn’t be used for food.

  1. I was at the polymer clay for costumers panel. It was so crowded that I had to sit on the floor.
