Take a No Sew Costumes Class

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

My two favorite ways to explore New York are riding a bike and gallivanting around in an absurd costume. Luckily, there are holidays like Santacon and Zombie Con through out the year, so I don’t have to wear my dinosaur costume to the grocery to get my silly clothes fix. If you’re looking for new ideas for DIY costumes, head to Materials for the Arts tomorrow night. For $10, you can take their class on new-sew costumes and learn all about draping, choosing fabrics and whipping up stylin’ looks with a glue gun. And with the Mermaid Parade in a few weeks, you’ll have the perfect opportunity to apply your new found textile skills.

Kiley E - Ragamuffin Researcher

After years of denial, Kiley has finally admitted to baring a striking resemblance to Velma from Scooby Doo. Instead of traveling in a van hunting ghosts, she prefers wandering on foot in search of tacos, cheap beer, and fake birds. Growing up in Portland, Kiley enjoyed the balance of urban and green spaces. Then she spent her four years at Ithaca College, and found herself craving more sprawling asphalt in her life. So she moved to Williamsburg, Brooklyn, where most of the buildings look like they're about to collapse. Kiley's favorite activities include: getting lost, crafting, sewing, biking, and geeking out at museums. Her love of taxidermy probably makes her a terrible vegetarian, but she doesn't care.
