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. You may make and enter more than one garment, but an individual should plan on appearing on stage only once. If you wish to combine garments into a “look”, say a dress and cape or jacket, you can model them both at the same time.

Here are some examples of previous year’s patterns and  the final results, to give you an idea of how it works:

Original pattern: 1930s evening gown, and some of the results:


Original pattern: Medieval fantasy gown, and some of the results:



Our patterns for CC32:

Simplicity 4043 Child, Girl and Miss Mermaid Costume


Simplicity 2513 Men’s Werewolf, Sherlock & Vampire Costume


Please note: The werewolf costume pattern has been discontinued by Simplicity, but stock is still available at many retailers and online. We have also purchased a number of copies; if you are unable to find the pattern locally, you can purchase it from us:



At the convention:

The Single Pattern Contest entries will be displayed during the Friday Night Social party, in a simple fashion-show style format.  No skits or other types of detailed presentations are required; entrants will walk on, show off their outfit to best advantage, and then walk off.
