This actually came about at FantaSci, but it gets its own post because IT DESERVES IT.
We were bobbing around the Dealer’s Room when we happened upon the Fashions by Figment booth, and I casually mentioned that I like wearing steampunkish garb at convention appearances. Whereupon, in an absolute and divine miracle, the costumers at said booth present me with a dress that 1) matches my hair, 2) is my favorite color, 3) fits as if it has already been tailored just for me, and 4) is steampunk as all get-out.

I’m one step further along my quest to be as stylish as @gailcarriger. ✨ This gorgeous dress is from Fashions by Figment (FYI, back corner in the #fantasci Dealers’ Room, next to Weber Universal Outfitters). I’ve never bought costume pieces at a con before, but this one was my favorite color, easy to wear, fit me like a glove, went perfectly with my necklace, kitty ears, and hair, and was a great price, especially considering its quality (Julie and Susan are theatrically-trained costumers). So basically, it was fate. ❤️ – hp
I don’t usually buy costumes because I prefer to make my own when I have the time, but Julie and Susan are theatrically-trained costumers who know their stuff – and I’m a firm believer that when the divine speaks, you should listen, especially when it concerns hecka cute clothing.

All this to say, if you ever encounter Fashions by Figment at a convention, you should totally check them out. 😀
