When I was a little boy, I was always running around the neighborhood in a cape made from a yellow towel that my mother lovingly pinned with a jumbo safety pin. She made my first Robin costume when I was 5, and I became a cosplay fan for life.

I began heading to science fiction conventions soon after that in a Logan’s Run Sandman costume my mother made. As I got older, and more into the details of my costumes being technically accurate, Mom brought in her friend Marilyn, a professional seamstress, and created my “Luke Skywalker in Bespin Fatigues” from The Empire Strikes Back. Talk about specific!

In those days you could run around in costumes like a total nerd, and the friendships you made were true blue, lasting to this day. For me, wearing costumes was perfect escapism and fun! And now, you can experience it too!

Welcome to Fancy Pants, where you can Be Fancy any time you want!
