1,000 Incredible Costume and Cosplay Ideas is a detailed compendium of the ingenious artistry and attention to detail behind some of the most fabulous costumes you can find. Featuring costumes from popular convention-goers and professional craftsmen, this book is filled with characters from anime and manga, video games, music, books, film and comics as imagined and created by fans.
Allison DeBlasio (Mrs. Grymm) and her husband Joey Marsocci (Dr. Grymm) own Dr. Grymm Laboratories, a custom prop fabrication and fine art business based in Connecticut. They plan an annual Steampunk art exhibit called the Steampunk Bizarre which was hosted at Mark Twain House and Museum in the winter of 2012. Their first book, 1,000 Steampunk Creations, has been featured in the New York Times, CBS Morning News, and an episode of Selling NY on HGTV. Dr. Grymm has also appeared on the PBS OffBook series and the BBC America World Wide news speaking about his Steampunk Artwork. They live in Middletown, CT and have two children who both love costumes and props already! Visit them online at http://www.drgrymmlaboratories.net.
