So, I am working on a costume build, and I kind of . . .blithely assumed I could do what I wanted and now I am, of course, realizing that I'm slightly out of my depth. I have tried googling but I'm not sure I'm looking at or for the right things. HALP? [more inside]
I grew up watching Seinfeld, but didn't really have a personal conception of style while the show was airing. I watch reruns, and I think that the costuming is sort of... "dorky 90s department store". However, I'm curious, when Seinfeld was contemporary, how fashionable would those clothes have been? What was being conveyed with the clothing choices of the main characters?
To start, I have a budget of about $250USD +/-. I need a hunter green tuxedo with tails, jacket and pants, matching. I cannot find one online at any price. [more inside]
I need someone who can work quickly, has reasonable prices, and can handle costuming from drawn, not particularly complex designs. Anecdotes welcome. [more inside]

I've got a kid enjoying high school theater, and I'd like to help. My skills do NOT run to hammers or sewing machines, but I can work Chrome / Google Docs / databases like a pro. The costume designer is wishing for a way to track student measurements, costume notes, and pictures / photos in some sort of online / app format for going to fabric stores and keeping track of sewing progress. She's coveting an iPad mini to use with it, so I guess an app would be fine. I'd prefer a Chrome / Google Doc option, because I'm cheap. LOVE to hear from costume designers / wardrobe coordinators who've figured this out. Extra credit points for people who know how to create a costume database for completed costumes after the shows.
My interests include historical fashion (BBC dramas!), bird watching, music. I'll be there from late-August thru November 2013. More info inside: [more inside]
I know nothing about costuming or sewing, and I don't have a lot of space to do it. Help me get set up and learning how to put together basic clothing/costumes in my apartment! [more inside]

I decided to buy my wife a small Medieval LARP weapons cache for Christmas. I know she will like it, but I want to wrap this gift so it will really wow her. I am in need of a clever or creative suggestion to put together this gift - without spending more than about 25 bucks on some sort of the thematic presentation. Help me tie up the best gift ever!
