Future Fashion Folio - special categories

In case you still haven't been over to the CC29 website <> and browsed around the pages there, I thought I'd post a bit about the special categories for this years Fashion Folio (the usual categories being listed on the website...). these sound like lots of fun! And you don't have to be a member of the convention to submit designs. Rules and useful links (for those who can't draw bodies) can be found on the Fashion Folio webpage <>

These categories are OPTIONAL.

1. BIALYSTOCK & BLOOM BROADWAY MASHUP (suggested by Toni Lay):
The production company of Bialystock & Bloom, Inc. are looking for talented costume designers for future productions.  Prospective designers may choose to design for one or several of the musicals listed below. Please submit sketches of your designs to Bialystock & Bloom, Inc. [Fashion Design Conteat Director’s Note: Basically, take your two favorite Broadway musicals, mash the titles and concepts together, and design the costumes for that show.]

These musicals are winners of the OFFY or OFFIE.  This award is for ‘off-off-off-off-off-off-off-off-off-off Broadway, so far off they’re in Staten Island,’ musicals.

The Lion King and I
The Sound of the Music Man
The Phantom of 42nd Street
A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Camelot
Kiss Me Evita
Fiddler on the Titanic
Damn Cats
Man of La Caberet
Man of La Cage aux Folles (suggested by Kathryn Draves)

2. REDESIGN YOUR FAVORITE MYTHOLOGY (suggested by Fran Evans, and $175 in cash prizes sponsored by ). Gods. Monsters, Heroes…here’s your opportunity to re-design your favorite mythology. To compete for the cash prizes, please submit designs in the categories: Egyptian, Atlantean/Greek, and Viking.

3. REDESIGN YOUR FAVORITE ANIME CHARACTER ($100 in cash prizes sponsored by Karen Dick): You know what your favorite characters wear in that anime you love, but what do YOU think they should wear when they’re out of uniform (or when they get drafted into the military), or on that special date, or going to that themed costume party? Extra points for believably recasting anime characters in Broadway musicals to suit the theme of the convention.

If you have any further questions, please send an email to Future Fashion Director, Karen Dick at futurefashion @
