Burdastyle really needs to add ‘costume’ as a possible category for projects. I’ve just added a Renaissance dress project, but there wasn’t really an accurate category to put it under. Sure, both ‘geek’ and ‘romantic’ apply to an extent, and it is really really vintage, but why isn’t there a full category for costumes? There’s always Halloween costumes each year, and with so many comic/sci-fi/etc conventions on, plus many people into Renaissance and other historical re-creation, there are lots of people who sew because they make these costumes and there really is a need for a place for these projects to be put under. There’s already Steampunk, so why not add a general category? I’m sure lots of people would make use of it.

    Thank you for your suggestion. This is a great idea. We will definitely put it on the list of considerations for future enhancements.

      Yes, please add costumes! I do a lot of different types of costume, and it’d be fun to hunt up what others are doing and experimenting with.

    Glad to hear it’s being considered. It wasn’t until I made a costume that I realised there wasn’t a category, and then started noticing the number of projects on here that are costumes. I think it’s something that goes unnoticed until you add a costume yourself.

    Yes, please add a costume category! I am a costume designer and at the moment am in the midst of getting 225 costumes out on stage this coming weekend! I would love to see what others are doing.

    Burda usually publishes themed costumes in an issue prior to Easter, if one is seeking ideas>Mardi Gras. Dirndls have shown up in different months-since it is the month of Oktoberfest, a dirndl would be ideal for the women to consider as their party attire.
