I am kicking off this glorious week with a bit of eye candy from the new book 1,000 Incredible Costume and Cosplay Ideas: A Showcase of Creative Characters from Anime, Manga, Video Games, Movies, Comics, and More. If you like to make costumes, wear fun outfits, or just love really cool photos of interesting garments, you will love this latest installment of the 1,000 series from Quarry Books.
I love the way the fabric is floating in the wind!

1,000 Incredible Costume and Cosplay Ideas provides a broad and detailed glimpse into the ingenious artistry and attention to detail behind some of the most fabulous costumes you can find. Featuring costumes from popular convention-goers to professional craftsman, this stunning, photo-filled book by Joey Marsocci and Allison DeBlasio of Dr. Grymm Laboratories walks you through scads of your favorite characters as imagined and created by fans.
Allison DeBlasio (Mrs. Grymm) and her husband Joey Marsocci (Dr. Grymm) own Dr. Grymm Laboratories, a custom prop fabrication and fine art business based in Connecticut. They plan an annual Steampunk art exhibit called the Steampunk Bizarre which was hosted at Mark Twain House and Museum in the winter of 2012. Their first book, 1,000 Steampunk Creations, has been featured in the New York Times, CBS Morning News, and an episode of Selling NY on HGTV. Dr. Grymm has also appeared on the PBS OffBook series and the BBC America World Wide news speaking about his Steampunk Artwork. They live in Middletown, CT and have two children who both love costumes and props already! Visit them online at http://www.drgrymmlaboratories.net.
