The comic convention is just a few short weeks away. All Bea and Connor need now are great costumes but won't they cost a fortune to make? Not if they follow some simple instructions from Bea's pet hamster: Costume Critter, the world's cutest cosplayer!

With Create a Costume! you can create fun, easy, budget-friendly costumes. And you don't have to start from scratch: a few simple modifications can transform thrift store clothes into a variety of costumes. Even mastering the sewing machine isn't as hard as it looks! You can make amazing costumes-all you need are the right tools, a little know-how, and a lot of imagination.

Reviews for Maker Comics: Create a Costume!

A nice touch is the addition of body empowerment that recognizes that cosplayers don't need to look exactly like comic-book characters in order to enjoy the experience... This user-friendly DIY cosplay guide is just the ticket for creating a fantastic cosplay persona. --Kirkus With tips on posing, con etiquette, and consent, this is a solid primer for kids who want to take their fandom to the next level. --Booklist Create a Costume is a cute, fun, colorful introduction to sewing presented as the kind of story-based graphic novels kids can't get enough of these days... Bea and Parker are such relatable characters that kids will undoubtedly see themselves and their friends in their enthusiasm and love of all things nerdy. --Nerdophiles If you're new to creating your own costumes, regardless of being an older age than the characters / target audience, I highly recommend you check this book out. --Sequential Tart
