Reporter seeking con costume makers

Hi, my name is Maggie Koerth-Baker. I'm a journalist working with the Associated Press on an article about folks to design and make costumes of fantasy/sci fi conventions. I'm looking for crafters who are interested in being interviewed and maybe (but not necessarily) photographed for the story.

The story is for the AP's upcoming craft and hobby special edition, so the story will focus on people who are hand-making their costumes. Particularly those who use sewing, and other crafty skills, to put things together. I'm interested in how you do your craft and how you got involved in it.

One note, I will need to use your real name, age, and general location (city and/or state) in the article. If you're not comfortable with that, I totally understand, but I can't include you as a source.

If you're interested, or if you have a question, drop me a line. You can either reply here or email me at maggie (dot) koerth (at) gmail (dot) com.

**Oh, and I'm sure that by posting in communites like this one I'm going to be deluged with fabulous sources. Please don't take it personally if I don't have time to reply to everyone. I really do appreciate everybody's interest in participating, though, and I thank you in advance!
