Desi Dessu - The World of Cosplay

Cosplay, the art of combining costume and role play, grew out of the practice of costuming at science fiction conventions. Over the past couple of decades, it has really taken off and become its own subculture. Desi believes cosplay can be inspired by Japanese anime characters, a Western comic book character, a Disney character, whatever inspires you. “It's literally just, I love this character so much that I want to express my love by actually dressing up as them.” Desi was a huge Sailor Moon fan and was following news on the Sailor Moon website in early 2000 when she discovered the world of cosplay conventions: a place where she connected with like-minded people, and her passion blossomed. She took her love of drawing and character design to the next level and began sewing costumes. She reminisces about ‘covert' costume making at Jo Anne Fabrics before cosplay was mainstream. Desi also talks about the importance of revisiting those older costumers in your portfolio because sometimes we take for granted the knowledge, we've accumulated that could help someone else.  She shares stories about her own evolution, and how she continually pushes her designs. A couple of examples she shares is taking a character you've cosplayed many times and finding  a new way to express how you love the character, or maybe you really love a character but want to give the costume a different aesthetic. Desi's style leans toward the soft, fanciful, and elaborate. She is currently working on an X-Men costume that will reflect her style. (5:26-14:23) You can hear the enthusiasm and pride in her voice as she talks about the talented people in the cosplay community. She advises for those who are new to cosplay is to, “start with something you love.”  She also feels that finding people you can socialize and cosplay with is important. Cosplay cons are a great place to build those connections. A typical day at a con is different for everyone. For Desi, it involves getting up early and getting the makeup on, then focusing on  costuming.  Often, checking out the lighting, going to scheduled photo shoots, and possibly meeting up with a cosplay group. Cosplay groups form naturally, whether it's from a shared passion for Disney princesses, a certain anime, or a new movie that's coming out.  Today, Desi is purely digital, designing her whimsical creations using Procreate® on an iPad.  (15:01-21:20)Cosplay and Desi have both come a long way in the past twenty years, and no doubt will continue to evolve over the coming years. Whether you're new to cosplay or an avid cosplayer, this one-on-one interview with Desi is not to be missed. You can connect with Desi on Instagram, Twitter, and TikTok at Desi Dessu.If you know someone who has an outstanding story that should be shared on this podcast, drop Meg a note to Meg@sewandsopodcast.com or complete the form on our website.

The Royal New Zealand Navy has a new taonga - a quilt sewn by 12 serving and retired female naval personnel with each of the 49 squares telling a story of their time in service. Those stories cover 6 decades, with the sewers aged from their 30s to their 80s. It's taken 18 months to complete, with the sewers repurposing old navy uniforms, buttons and braid to create the squares. It's about to be shown to the public in an exhibition called Threads Through Time at the Torpedo Bay Navy Museum in Devonport. Lynn Freeman spoke to two of the contributors - Chief Petty Officer Fiona Carter who's working within Fleet Personnel at the Devonport Naval Base, and to Sandy Watson who served in the Navy as an Able Signals Wren 1969-71, and then in the 1980s with the Reserves. Threads Through Time opens to the public at Auckland's Torpedo Bay Navy Museum on the 1st of October as part of the Auckland Heritage Festival.

Although Teresa comes from generations of makers, she was the first to pursue quilting as a career when she, as she puts it, “stumbled into the quilting industry.” It began in 2011 when she joined the crew at the Fabric Shop Network and then became editor of Websense magazine. Teresa started out making garments using patterns from The Big Four. From there she discovered Indie pattern makers and vintage patterns, and really started working with non-traditional fabrics like painted canvas and double chiffons, and other weird fabrics and piecing them together to make different types of quilts. After coming on board with Shannon Fabrics, she began specializing in Shannon's Cuddle® fabrics, a 100% polyester microfiber plush fabric. Today Teresa uses these fabrics to create unique quilts, crafts, home décor, and apparel.  (2:12 – 11:11)As she continues talking about her journey, she shares how a trip to Vietnam in 2007 with her children changed everything for her. After volunteering at several orphanages there, Teresa continued her outreach work. It's a fascinating story of bringing caring and hope to young Vietnamese children, and of working with others in the sewing community to provide much-needed goods to Vietnam orphanages. Because of the profound impact it had on her, Teresa hopes to return to Vietnam within the next couple of years. (11:11 – 15:24)Meanwhile, Teresa is traveling the US with her partner, videographer, and RV driver Hawke who is working with her to bring Shannon Fabrics' Sew Together Tuesdays to live audiences across America. On the road ten out of the last twelve months, they've been to 43 states, where Teresa has taught in all kinds of beautiful and charming quilt shops, met all kinds of interesting people, and experienced countless joyful moments. She talks about the range of different shops and fabrics and creative focuses, from heirloom sewing to embroidery, traditional quilting to modern clothes. She also shares the one thing that all of these shop owners have in common, which is their deep love for the industry. According to Teresa, her time on the road never stops being entertaining.Her connection to the myriad of people she meets on the road continues via her Facebook group, “I Love Cuddle® Fabric.” She loves what she does so much, she plans to continue teaching and hopes to add more pattern-making into her creative endeavors. “I get to teach. I get to learn. And that's the thing that makes me happy.” (22:07-30:04)Be sure to listen in on our casual conversation with Teresa for inspiration, insights, and a lot of smiles.

Knowing that one of the first rules of dancewear is that it should enhance movement, not burden it, she set out to create styles that were functional, comfortable, and fashionable. Within her first eight months, she was featured at two sold-out shows at New York Fashion Week. Leah's passion for design was ignited when she was nine years old and involved in a local hip-hop dance theater. She realized that one of the ways she and the other dancers expressed themselves was through what they wore, so she started drawing designs for leotards in her notebooks. “I was probably designing five or six a week or something like that. And I had no ability to make them yet, but I definitely had vision.” It was her senior year of high school, when started to develop her skills: working with steel boning and patterning, she created a beautiful stretch corset. Leah realized that regular flat patterns didn't work for a dancer with her build: long torso, athletic build, full bust measurement. She fully developed the skills to make clothes in college, but it wasn't until after she graduated and inherited a 50-year-old Serger that she was able to develop a prototype. Soon after, she purchased a BERNINA L 890 with air-threading capabilities. At that point, she had the resources she needed to launch her company. [2:00-22:00)And wow, what a launch it was! Leah Kate shares her experience of receiving the call to help choreograph a dance fashion show for EDM artists DRMAGDN and Sh!tty Princess in collaboration with fashion designer Hicham Bens of The Royals Paris (personal designer for the Moroccan Royal Family). About halfway through the process, DRUMAGDN asked her if she wanted to launch Leahtards. As if that wasn't exciting enough—Leahtards opened the show. She choreographed, performed, and launched her brand at New York Fashion Week. She also shares some of the highlights of her illustrious dancing career.  A video of the Fashion Show Week performances is currently in the works, as the momentum of Leah Kate's success keeps building. Leah Kate's mission is to provide dancewear and costumers that make dancers feel good about walking out onto the stage for rehearsal or performing in her own words. “I want to be a refuge for my dancers, and my customers so that they feel like themselves, they feel that they've expressed themselves fully, and they're not judging themselves, and therefore, they really don't care if anybody else is.” [24:19-51:56]To say that Leah Kate is an entrepreneurial powerhouse would be an understatement.  As she details her experiences, the energy builds and her passion and enthusiasm are palpable. Be sure to tune in to listen to this amazing success story.

When HollyAnne was caring for her babies and in the throes of post-partum depression, quilting was what she did to “feed her soul,” and her online quilting community was her soft place to land. Once she discovered modern and modern-traditional quilting, she quickly fell down the rabbit hole, and upon watching a free motion quilting class online, her passion took on a life of its own. “Something about it really spoke to my soul. It really reminded me of the motion of brushstrokes and Impressionism and modern Impressionist paintings, which was always my favorite era of art.” While she was building a small business selling t-shirt quilts through her Etsy shop, she continued her exploration of modern quilting, going to her first QuiltCon in 2017. It was there she witnessed free-motion quilting in person. She describes her time there as magical and managed to pass out a box of business cards to start building community. The event, which she refers to as a “breath of fresh air,” was the thing that set her education company String and Story into motion. As a result of her passion, commitment and love of teaching, the community quickly attracted an international following. (3:46 -10:35)HollyAnne soon created a blog on Instagram followed by Quilting Rock Stars, a String & Story community on Facebook, which attracts people from around the world. “What started as my little feeble attempt to just have a place to talk to other people who liked quilting, turned into a real community where folks would share about stuff going on with their families, their health challenges… and it's been incredible.” She talks about the power of community, and how this virtual community has been a lifeline through some very dark times. (13:30   – 17:38)HollyAnne views her live String & Story sessions on YouTube and her Rock Stars group as an old-time quilting circle gone viral.  It's a place where people can pull up a chair, tell stories and be real. “I really believe that if I can be leading with love, and how I lead my community, then we can navigate all the hard things that are gonna come our way.” (13:30   – 24:54)As she continues to share her journey with us, HollyAnne talks about making quilts for kids with cancer, the genesis of String & Story, her inspiring Rock Stars, and her new store in Duluth.  During this casual conversation, her humanity and love of quilting shine through.

Black people should not be ashamed of having been enslaved. The shame is in white people. The shame is in those folks who could compromise so much of their own beliefs to enact the greatest crime against humanity” -Lisa Woolfork in “Stitch Please”“The stain glass initiative seeks to acknowledge and perpetuate the diversity of experience and reflection that is needed to envision a better common good” -Angela Franklin in “Stitch Please”Stay Connected:Lisa WoolforkInstagram: Lisa WoolforkTwitter: Lisa WoolforkAngela FranklinInstagram: Angela Franklin Facebook: Angela Franklin
