Jeremy Johnson is the instigator along with Sheila Lenkman, who is primarily known for her work at Archon, the Midwest’s biggest and oldest regional Sci-Fi and Fantasy convention. She also is a very experienced theatrical costumer working at The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis since 1995. Jeremy is very active in Anime costuming. Here is an interview with Jeremy I found on Youtube.
Why am I bring this up?? Well, I am one of the speakers!! I am offering 5 different sessions.
It is very exciting to be part of a new event like this.
This link will take you to the home page for The Midwest Costume Academy. There are bios of all the speakers, a list of classes (not complete yet), and other useful information. If any one who reads my blog is coming, please let me know. We can have lunch together ... or something.
