I know that a lot of people use my patches as elements for costumes or cosplays, but it is rare that I actually get to see them in person. So it was very exciting for me to see not one, but TWO examples at TerrifiCon this past weekend!
This couple purchased my Temeraire patches, inspired by the books of Naomi Novik, at last year’s TerrifiCon. They were inspired by them to design and create full Royal Aerial Corps uniforms, complete with beautiful embroidery of their own, which they rocked all weekend long! The uniforms were even personalized to show which dragon each of them served on, and other details about their individual characters.
Last year, I sold dozens of Pawnee Goddesses patches to customers who let me know that they were going to be doing that as a Halloween costume, so I knew that it was a thing. But this weekend was the first time I’d actually seen one of them in person, when this amazing Pawnee Goddess showed up in my booth. Her costume was completed by all of the merit badges stitched to her purple vest below the one I had made, and I couldn’t stop smiling to see her!
Speaking of Halloween costumes – if you’re hoping to get some patches from us for that purpose, I recommend ordering sooner rather than later! Our fall is packed full of shows and commitments, and October is one of our busiest months for online orders. It’s always better to order early and be sure you have your patches in time, rather than risk it showing up in November!
