Eleventh-hour costuming plea

From a theatre colleague here in Chicago who's gearing up for DragonCon. She's hoping to find someone local, obviously, but it might be possible to work out the logistics with someone she can meet at the con. She knows it's a longshot, given that costumers going to DC are likely to be busy with their own stuff, but I told her I'd put it here and see what happened.

I'd commissioned a costume from someone who, owing to unexpected problems, is not going to be able to construct this costume for me. So, I'm scrambling to try and find someone else to take on this project.

The budget for this costume is about $175.  I have a basic design and the original costumer is willing to sit in on the initial meeting to talk specifics.  I realize the budget and the timeframe are both tight but if you know of anyone reputable who would be willing to work with me onthis, I think it could be a lot of fun and a great creative opportunity for him or her, particularly as they would have a free hand (within budget) with the fantasy elements.


I have no idea what the project is, but if you're intrigued and think it might be doable, holler and I'll hook you up by email.

Ack. I feel her pain. I have... no idea how I'm going to finish my stuff before con, while moving, and that's with having the ability to construct it all myself. Here's hoping she can find someone in time...

Yeah. The customs guy looked very confused last week when he asked if I was bringing in anything but my personal clothes and toiletries, and I answered "a sewing machine and a fabric steamer."

Hang in there. I'm sure you'll make it work.
