f-costume -- Dedicated to fantasy costuming discussions

 

About f-costume
English (USA)

The fantasy costume mailing list concentrates on the design, motivation
and execution of fantasy clothing and costume, from all eras: past,
present and future. Your imagination is your only limitation!

Typical topics include special event costumes ("cons" and parades),
science fiction costumes, mythological and other non-factual historic-type
costumes, serious Halloween and Mardi Gras costumes, theatrical costumes,
using and finding patterns, materials, books, and finding sources for
supplies. We discuss mask making techniques, using wigs and other head
gear, makeup issues, vacuum forming (mold making and building), using
plastics and other materials safely, dyeing fabrics, incorporating mixed
media into costumes, the use of unusual materials such as aluminum cans,
chain links or wire cloth, etc. and the use of various fabrics, such as
lycra, sheers, netting and metallics, etc., to achieve special effects.
Notifications of publications, galleries, shows and other venues that
offer displays of fantasy costume, and learning opportunities available
through classes and workshops, are also of interest to this list.

Advertisements or announcements for costumed events are also welcome, but
those of you in groups that focus on costuming of a specific type (science
fiction, fantasy, medieval recreation, war reenactment, etc.) should
refrain from using this list for group-specific socializing, promotion,
or persona fabrication. For that type of conversation, please use your
organization's own newsgroup or mailing list, which has been specifically
set up to encourage those types of discussions. When using this list,
please follow the normal rules of net etiquette and don't post messages
widely divergent from the charter, and keep personal chat to private
e-mail.

Please respect all copyright laws when using this list. Practically
speaking, that means you should post references or explain how to get
instructions, rather than copying those instructions from some other
publication or post (without permission of that author). It's this
list's policy that individual articles submitted to this list are the
property of the author of the post. Do not repost articles from this
list in _any_ forum without the original author's consent.

(The current archive is only available to the list members.)
