​Have you ever wanted to cosplay as your favourite character but don't know where to begin? This presentation, led by former TPL Innovator in Residence Tess Jewell will set you on your way, with tips and tricks for choosing a character, researching your design, selecting materials and patterns and building props. Aided by colourful photos, we'll discuss how to make a costume from foam, fabric, or second hand materials, with additional advice on how to prepare for conventions and photo shoots.​ Getting started is easier than you think!
