Making cosplay more accessible with easy to use resources!

Hi I'm Rachel, AKA Maridah. I've been cosplaying since 2001 & have a background in theater costuming. Over the years I've made numerous guides based on my cosplay projects. Pattern drafting has been a passion of mine for a long time, and it is my favorite challenge in cosplay crafting.

In January of 2019, I decided to scan in some hand-drawn applique patterns so I could make them available to other cosplayers. This got me interested in doing more. In the following weeks, I taught myself how to digitize my pattern work. This eventually lead to me branching into standardizing & grading so my patterns could fit general size runs.

My goal has long been to use my experience over the last few decades to make cosplay more accessible to others. I hope you will love using these patterns and resources to create cosplay memories!

Frequently asked questions
How much yardage will my pattern need?

Most of my sewing patterns now come with a yardage and supply list. Fabric estimates are provided for 58" wide fabrics. The yardage you will need will vary depending on fabric width. To get the most accurate estimate possible, print out your specific size and tape it together. Using a measuring tape or yard stick, calculate yardage based on the width of the fabric you plan to use.

What fabrics do I need to buy for my pattern?

Each pattern comes with recommended fabrics listed on the cover page of the instructions. You don't need to stick to these materials though! Unless otherwise noted (like in the case of needing stretch materials) fabric type is completely up to your own personal preferences and local store availability.

Are these patterns good for beginner crafters?

I recommend my sewing patterns for those who have sewing experience. If you are new to crafting costumes but want to use one of my store's patterns, have a friend or family member who is experienced help you.

Many of my sewing patterns come with illustrated instructions. I've done my best to provide help with guiding you through the process of working with these patterns, but a basic understanding of sewing techniques is needed.

Some of the patterns are designs that require knowledge of advanced sewing techniques. These patterns will be a significant challenge to new crafters & should be tackled only if you are already confident in your ability to use and adapt patterns to craft costumes. Check each listing's description before purchase.

What cosplay patterns do you have planned for release?

I have a lot of patterns in the works! I share updates on upcoming patterns regularly on my twitter account @maridahdotcom and have a page with a WIP list here on on my website https://www.maridah.com/pattern-faqs.html

Do you have costumes I can order?

I do not provide pre-made costumes or cosplay commission services, but you are welcome to have a costume made by a commissioner with the assistance of the crafting materials here in my store.

If you don't have a commissioner in mind, message me and I will send you a list of crafters who have told me they are available to take on commission work if you provide them with one of my patterns.

Please note- Individuals can use my patterns to make a cosplay commission, but company commercial use or any form of redistribution is prohibited.

I see a listing I've already bought has been updated with new files. Do I need to buy it again?

No need to buy it again! I will gladly send you the updated files for free if you've already bought the pattern or resource. Go to your order and send me a message (or contact me with your order number so I can look it up) and let me know you are requesting the most recent version of the downloads from your purchase. I'll email them to the email listed on your order information. If this email is no longer in use, please let me know a current email address you can receive the files at.
