The patterns below are to be used as a starting point for creating an outfit. You may stay close to the original pattern, or alter it dramatically, but the final product must be recognizable as being made from one (or more) of the patterns.
You must be a registered member of Costume-Con 32 to enter or model garments in this contest.
