I just signed up; it's looking pretty cool around here! I am going to school for costume design and through working with a few students in the animation department, I realized I would love to make clothes for stop motion armatures!! I'm slowly learning more and more and I'm here to learn, pick up advice, and meet new people. I am in awe of the animators and fabricators on these projects, too! So, thanks for having me and I hope to meet all of you in turn.
Yep! That's the one! I hope you find it helpful!
Wow, it looks like they're now printing it on demand:
"Important Note about PRINT ON DEMAND Editions: You are purchasing a print on demand edition of this book. This book is printed individually on uncoated (non-glossy) paper with the best quality printers available. The printing quality of this copy will vary from the original offset printing edition and may look more saturated. The information presented in this version is the same as the latest edition. Any pattern pullouts have been separated and presented as single pages. If the pullout patterns are missing, please contact c&t publishing."
Thats a great way to make an out-of-print book available again. Oh, and when they say they have 6 copies available, they'll be getting more in when those are alomst gone. They always say how many are remaining under every item, I think it's to scare people into thinking they better order now.
You can buy the book used on Amazon. I just order one for $9.49. And, Felicia, I might be wanting you to make some costumes for me too.
Hi everybody! I wanted to post the film I just worked on to this thread. It was the first piece I have made costumes for that has come to completion! The talented animator and fabricator is named Aron Bothman. This was his second year film at California Institute of the Arts. To reiterate, I only made the costumes, he did the puppets and animation, but I believed it turned out to be a gorgeous piece. Hope you enjoy it!
My print on demand copy of the book looks great ... no one should be concerned about ordering one. This is a great book ... now if I could just stop sticking myself with a needle ;-)

Excellent work Felicia!
I have been so busy at school this year that I have not been able to stop by very much. I love the community here, though, so I hope you don't mind if I revive this old thread with some of the recent work I have been lucky enough to be part of. Feedback is always much appreciated!
This was a film I created costumes for which is roughly 6th scale. The girl's dress is silk and the artist's outfit is cotton and thin wool, with handmade buttons (which was my first time making them by hand :D )The piece is lovely and the armatures, hands, faces, and animation was all done by the very talented Aron Bothman. The full video can be seen on his website: http://aronwithonea.com/projects/4330232
