I'm starting up a business where I will be designing digital dress patterns for cosplay in size 8-22.
If anyone is interested please come look at www.indiegogo.com/rapturecostumiers
and like us at www.facebook.com/rapturecostumiers because I will be taking character requests later down the line. My first set are lolita patterns and all will be printable on your home printer with some assembly required.
Also comes with instructions for beginners.
I think it would be awesome if people also then used their costume patterns to create their everyday wardrobe. I personally do not want to wear clothes from the supermarket for the rest of my life.

I'm currently in the firs week of my indiegogo project located at
I thought people might be interested here because I will be starting with the availability of my lolita dresses in digitial format then moving on to other designs as well as cosplay for videogames and anime.
All patterns will be £10 but work out cheaper if you purchase them during indiegogo.
If you join us on facebook at www.facebook.com/rapturecostumiers I will be taking suggestions for characters to make the patterns for.
All patterns will come with instructions for beginners as well as alternate ways to design it as your own outfit.
Pattern drafts for people to work on will also eventually be available, starting with the dress block. It comes with a lifetime license allowing you to use it as you wish to make outfits you can sell.
All in sizes 8-22, and custom sizing on request.
Maybe this way we can get sewing back to the people one item at a time.
There is more info and a video over at www.indiegogo.com/rapturecostumiers
Empire line, any dress with the waist right under the boobs. Then large flared skirts. Also surprisingly pencil skirts if well fitted. The curvy shape is good for them, it just tends to be that we buy the wrong sizes.
I own the kindle keyboard, slightly older one than they have out now, and I have the kindle app on my android tablet. I love my archos slightly more right now because I can read manga, comics and my books, including kobo. However the kindle app is amazing. As long as I connect to the net by wifi, it will sync up where I got to in my book, including books you add to it. As long as it is on both devices it will save your notes and book marks and when you turn the wifi on your real kindle you open your book et voila, same page. It is making reading Game of thrones verrrry smooth. I love it. I would not live without my kindle now. I love books but they take up way too much room, as well as the fact I used to collect manga and have way too many of those also.
Digital is the future and I am all for it.
