Class Experience

Get your Cosplay ready for this year's Denver Pop Culture Con!

Join Pirates of Penzance costumer Amber Tyler and her son Jack Tyler as they guide you through creating your own Cosplay! All experience levels welcome!

Bring some thrift store finds and an idea! Together we can turn them, and you, into the character you have always wanted to cosplay. 


Day 1: Share our thrift finds, draw a costume croque and look through materials to plan. 

Day 2: seam-ripping, hand-sewing, fitting on partner, finalizing drafting plan. 

Day 3 & 4 sewing. 

Day 5: finishing touches, posing in character, photo shoot and selfie party.


Class meets Mon-Fri from 9:00am - 12:00pm at BackStory Theatre (555 Burbank St, Unit Q).


Notes

Students should wear clothes they can move freely in and closed-toed shoes. Flip-flops and other slip-on shoes present tripping hazards in class.

Please bring a water bottle, pencil, and highlighter to every class.
