Let's meet outside the restaurant at 4:30 p.m. The Arlington Cinema and Drafthouse is across the street, so anyone attending the Serenity event will have time to join us if they wish to.
The idea is to brainstorm ideas for characters or costumes and to help each other come up with ideas on how to put a finished Steampunk persona together. (Note: this is not the same as cosplay where you pick an existing character and mimic it. I'm talking about your own persona -- explorer, mad scientist, etc.)
I'm bringing an art pad, pencils/pens, and a couple of books: Steampunk Your Wardrobe and Fantasy Fashion Art Studio.
Please bring drawing materials (or tablet, if you prefer) for jotting down ideas. Also, if you see any photos in catalogs of clothing ideas, bring those as well. Butterick, Simplicity, and McCalls patterns sometimes are good idea starters, whether or not you sew.
