MagicCon 5 | Workshop | Cosplay Nähen für Anfänger | Mel Grebing

The workshop Cosplay Sewing for Beginners is primarily about losing the fear of self-sewing. Anyone can sew, and you don’t have to memorize the sewing dictionary first.

With simple means, you can go very far. Here’s how I approach the question:

  • What must the sewing machines be able to do?
  • Which fabrics are suitable?
  • Where do I get patterns?
  • How do I adapt a pattern?

Using a costume as an example, I show the production process including the ideas and thoughts behind it. What avoidable missteps there were and why you should just make mistakes.

Sewing is like playing the piano: you can do a lot wrong, but it’s not far to Pour Elise.

If you want, you can bring your own problem bear and we’ll look for a solution.

Questions can be asked at any time and afterwards. On MagicCon 5 you can also contact me at any time.

Mel Grebing, amateur cosplayer non-binary, prefers xie/xier pronouns but is used to them/her and doesn't make a fuss about it.

Started sewing costumes in 2019 without any prior knowledge. The Arihna Pryce pants were still started with the help of a friend, but already the tunic was sewn on my own, including adapting the pattern. The next project was Aziraphale from Good Omens, for which only the vest and jacket were sewn.

From then on, the projects with Jaskier from The Witcher series became more challenging. Patterns had to be made based on other patterns and the complex embellishments required a lot of blood, tears and curses.

For MagicCon 5, the 5th costume, Stede Bonnet from the series Our Flag Means Death will be ready.
