    Those of us on the costuming team have been discussing what we think we should include in this forum. But we want your opinions!

    What do you want/need from this forum? Do you want discussion and interpretation of how the books describe certain cultures and their dress? Do you want tutorials on sewing and crafting? Do you want to follow along with projects step by step as to how others have done things for inspiration? Do you want something I haven't even mentioned?

    Let us know what content you want to see as we shape this forum to reflect the communities costume and cosplay needs.

    I'm watching in hopes that knitting patterns show up here eventually for different things: stoles, shawls, other accessories that would be appropriate (Nynaeve knits in The Great Hunt, Elaida does as well, so it should be canon as a craft)

    I want all of the above and would like to see how tv.net group styles would be too. Mainly how the companies would design their uniforms, I know some of us worked with @Dar'Jen Ab Owain to design VC's uniform :) they are still in progress though

    That would definitely be cool - all the companies' uniforms/specific accessories? Maybe different battle flags would be cool as well for the companies?

    I also thought of just fan patterns - a toque with the ouroboros symbol in stranded colorwork, for instance.

    A list of everyone who offers commissions for shawls and the like would be helpful, too.

    Meli and I have talked about it, but we have some rules about selling on the forums that we'd need to make clear before we can add that kind of a list. It's not a no, just a not yet.

    What about members making portfolio threads, where they can post their individual crafts/works/costumes? We could have a stickied directory in here that folks could go through as well.

    I'm in no rush :) Definitely understand the "We do not endorse this person", but even a list of names that we can contact and work with privately would be helpful.

    I'd love to see cosplay interpretations of different styles (Domani, Aiel, Andoran, you get the idea), especially before the show goes live.

    I'm very interested in national dress as based from the series. I'm doing a reread now and noting clothing references, but would love to see others' interpretations.
