CoCoVid Weekend


It’s been a while since I updated my blog. Since the pandemic began, I lost my creative mojo. I’ve been trying to force myself over the last few months, but thats never the way is it?

However, I feel my creative mojo coming back with thanks to the CoCovid weekend that is currently going on on YouTube.

Every year there is a fabulous event called ‘Costume College‘ in California. I came across it watching YouTube videos of the event last year and I would love to attend at some point (if my confidence and anxiety will allow me). As this years was cancelled, members of CosTube have created an online event over this weekend. These CosTube members are uploading videos to their YouTube channels over these 4 days. I’m a little late to the party, but I believe the videos will be available for the next week or two at the very least (depending on the individual channel). They have also created a Discord server for people to interact with each other over the weekend.

At Costume College, you’re able to collect unique ribbons by attending events and classes, and CoCovid have given us the ability to collect badges by downloading a free Badgewallet app. I’ve already collected 3 (as I said, I’m late to the party!) and I’m looking forward to collecting more.

I’ve printed off the CoCovid programme and I’m looking forward to jumping into more videos in a minute, but I wanted to come on and post on here about it before the weekend is over. It’s making me so excited to start sewing again and perhaps even become a member of the CosTube community myself at some point.

You can find all the information on their Instagram page with links to all the good stuff:
