Cosplaying with Kids

Feedback form is now closed.

Is your kid's dress up closet overflowing? Do their Halloween costumes put the neighborhood kids to shame? Then you might have a budding cosplayer on your hands!

Come learn helpful hints to making kids' costumes on a budget (after all they grow out of them quickly!) and how to face the challenges of being a "cosplay mom/dad."

We'll cover the differences in making costumes for adults vs kids (ie: more limited sizes, smaller budgets, more comfortable costumes) and share some of our favorite local kid costumes.
