This is another entry that’s going outside the usual scope of FFC, but it’s an important topic for any costumer, so here goes. Just like the name suggests, a foundation garment is something worn under your street clothes – or costume – which supports your outer clothing and/or changes the shape of your body, usually… Read More »

Book Review: Classic And Modern Fabrics

Note from the management: Why book reviews? The fact is, I don’t want to populate this site with many more fabric definitions because I’m writing for the neophyte cosplayer and focused on fabrics that you’re likely to find at a typical retail store. Sure, my dictionaries and reference books list many, many more types of… Read More »
