Fan Costume Creation Day:
Sunday, 26th July, from 9:00 a.m. Enoggera Bowls Club.
The day is a $2 entry
Attention Tolkien/Game of Thrones/ Fantasy/Medieval fans and cosplayers, avid and amateur:
The Brisbane Tolkien Fellowship is organising their first ever Fan Creation Day on the 26th of July at the Enoggera Bowls Club. This will be a day of local cosplayers and professionals demonstrating and sharing Tolkien and medieval costumes and cosplay techniques.
Some of the presenters to date:
- Greg Conroy – our favourite Sauron, dwarf and orc will be talking about his experiences so far in cosplay, and how to work with the plastic tubs to produce such good looking armour
- Jared Miles – the hard to miss Gondorian Citadel Guard will be passing on some tips for new cosplayers and teaching about foam and Worbla armour
- Amanda Kelly – our very own Eowyn will be showing everyone how to make their own patterns, and useful skill for anyone but especially cosplayers
- Trevor Wheate – BTF’s Gandalf and dwarf will discuss, demonstrate the making of, and even sell his iconic medieval jewellery.
The day is a $2 entry and will begin at 9am with presentations beginning at 9:30am. In the meantime, feel free to browse through some of the vendors who will also be there selling their amazing wares. In addition to Trevor’s jewellery, there will be Tolkien and other pop-culture inspired earrings from Express Your Fandom (http://www.expressyourfandom.com/), Brisbane Tolkien Fellowship bags, books, pens, and more.
Presentations will run as two parallel sessions beginning at 9:30am and running for 2 hours. This will be followed by an hour long lunch break during which you can purchase great value meals from the Bowls Club chef, check out the vendors in more detail, or chat to the presenters outside of their talks. The morning sessions will then be repeated starting at 1:30pm, to allow those who attended one session in the morning to see the other, or feel free to watch them again to pick up more from the presenter. Sessions will conclude at approximately 2:30pm and will be followed by an open forum, allowing anyone to ask questions directed at any or all presenters about techniques or recommendations for their costume.
Hope to see you there!
