Will Update Soon.......

Sorry for the long absence but I'll try to update some of the address and links found here. Predominantly the ones pertaining to Tailor/Seamstress and Costume Shops (some FYI, some like House of Costume had "disappered" physically the last I went pass the place).

Had been real busy with RL, work, Troopings etc so will try to find the time to go around Singapore to check out the addresses again to confirm they're still around, and add any new address to the list.

Stay Tune! :D

Costumed Talents Etiquette

Costumed Talents Etiquette Guidelines courtesy of Obi-Wan's Jedi Academy (yes, the context is more for Star Wars but it can also be adjust for other Fandom)


This may seem like a silly subject to be addressing, but there are some costuming etiquette tips to keep in mind when you go out in public, appear at conventions, theatres, etc.. Remember folks, when you go dressed as a character from Star Wars, you are representing George Lucas' vision. You also need to remember small children don't fully understand what's going on…some of them think you are a real Stormtrooper, Darth Vader or whoever it is you are dressed as. Try to remember some of the following when in costume:

Patience, young Jedi...
When in the vicinity of children, even when taking a break, try not to smoke. This can "cheapen" the fans experience. 

The Green Room.
If you've been invited to a convention/event, chances are your hosts will provide a room with drinks, snacks, etc.. Be sure to take a moment to relax and enjoy yourselves, but not at the expense of your event.

Watch your language.
Also when around small children please do not curse. We'd hate to turn off a new generation of Star Wars fans, or their parents.

Gimmie money!
If you do decide to take pictures with children or sign their photos, it's only right to NOT accept money from them or their parents. Going to conventions in costume should be another perk for the other fans there, not a money making attraction for you.

There are sometimes exceptions to this suggestion, like raising money to give to charity, as many of the events 501st Stormtrooper Legion participates in. 

Make time for pictures.
Please don't refuse photos. Even if you're enroute somewhere, take the time to pose for the cameras. You'll give someone a memory they can cherish for years to come.
Don't scare the children.
Small children may or may not have seen Star Wars. Those who haven't will not recognize you or your costume. If you wear a mask and a child is starting to shy away or cry, remove your mask to show them there is really a person underneath.

On the same note, don't intentionally scare children. Kids can be a lot of fun at conventions if you let them. 

Be Prepared...
Generally speaking, most people are very nice and pleasant to deal with. There are also people you'd rather avoid if you can help it. Small children (and their parents) sometimes see costumers as targets and they will sometimes try to have fun at your expense, especially if they've been drinking.

Take things in stride, but don't be a pushover. Avoiding a confrontation is the best way to handle one. If you have a designated "floater" (a person who isn't in costume that helps your group), have them look around for potential problems. 

Do you work for Lucas?
Never say you work for or are affiliated with LucasFilm. Honesty is always the best policy.

Something Interesting About Leggings

From The Straits Times - URBAN (Page 5) 

ASK MAY by May Yip


I've noticed that leggings are very in. Can you suggest where I can find plus-size leggings? Most tights I've seen are free-size and too small for my plump figure.

There are those who believe that anyone an ounce heavier than Nicole Richie should steer clear of tights.

There's because the notion of wrapping the belly, hips and thighs - common problem areas for women - in lycra sounds like fashion suicide.

But plus-size woman tend to carry their weight on top and can boast fairly slim legs. Given this, leggings can look great on almost everyone-when worn well.

The trick is to create the illusion of a sleek, long silhouette by balancing tights with a body-skimming tunic top that drops to mid-thigh. And please stick to basic black.

Animal prints may be the next big thing, but sheathing elephant thighs in leopard spots will drive others wild with disgust.

Another fashion pitfall to avoid is wearing a short top - anything that falls above the crotch qualifies.

This Fashion carries a good range of affordable leggings from $10, but size can be limited.

Here's an insider tip: Check out the chain's Chinatown (275 New Bridge Road) or Bugis Village (157/158 Rochor Road) outlets for bigger sizes.

Zara also carries three-quarter versions in medium or large sizes at $16.90 each.

Corsets In Singapore

From The Straits Times - URBAN (October 12 2006


Q: How do I know if a corset fits me, and are there different types of corsets? Also, what should I wear it with and when is it appropriate to wear one?

Forget feminist fluff about corsets being products of a partriachal culture. 

For those who need a little body sculpting, the stiff piece of undergarment is a godsend. 

Italian designer Roberto Cavalli showed corsets in leopard print while Dolce & Gabbana, a staunch proponent of the hour-glass figure, flaunted aggressive black corset dresses at the spring/summer 2007 shows. 

The desire to cinch the waist and exaggerate the body's natural curves took root during the Minoan Bronze Age in about 1700BC when men and women wore the corset as outer garments. 

Corsets re-emerged during the Renaissance when fashion celebrated the female form. The trend continued through the Victorian age, when extremely tight lacing of the corset was in vogue.
However, some women fastened their corsets so tightly that their internal organs were punctured by their lower ribs. Doctors urged an end to such undergarments in 1890. 

Today, experienced corset wearers still like theirs very tight at the waist, say Jean Lin, who brings in a range of corsets from Switzerland, available from Tangs and her online store http://www.romancedamour.com/ 

But she advices novices not to wear a new piece that is too tight because it needs time to adjust to the shape of your body. 

A corset fits if it adapts to your waist shape perfectly, without room between the garment and your body. 

It may be hard to believe, but properly fitted corsets should be comfortable. In fact, some wearers enjoy the feelings of having their waists hugged by the undergarment, says Lin

The different types of corsets include traditional ones like the bondage corset (a longer version that extends beyond the waist,severely limiting the wearer's movements), the hour-glass Victorian corset and the ribbon corset. 

Modern versions are more fashionable and less restrictive due to stretch fabrics and more generous cuts. 

While the corset is usually worn as an undergarment beneath a tight dress like a wedding gown, fashionistas have found ways to transform it into sensible outerwear. 

For instance, a pair of white bustier one with jeans for a sexy cowboy look. Or team a plain black one with a knee-length pencil skirt for a dash of dominatrix chic. To keep it casual, simply layer a corset over a fitted T-Shirt or tank top.
