Ohco Day 1 Blitz

So this Monday Ohco’s sale began.

I pulled up and it was how it always was, walls of beautiful fabric. I saw jacquard, heavy brocades, fur, suede cloth, vinyl, faux leather, satins, and things I didn’t even know how to classify.

Tise met up with me around noon and we proceeded to go through the racks systematically because there is no rhyme or reason to how the put the rolls in there. It’s a good idea to lift everything and take a look at the roll because the fabric is on there backwards to protect it and you cannot see what it really looks like until you flip over the edge of it.

About 30 mins later I saw a couple looking through their booklet at anime characters they had planned. I said hi and we spent half an hour talking and it turns out they were from a section of Florida that I used to live. We traded info because there were all kinds of places that I remembered that your average cosplayer in FL should know about.

After that we resumed our fabric hunt and I wanted so much of it but I had a budget to keep so I picked out a couple things I needed for costumes and a couple things that were too beautiful to leave.

Lets start out with an overview so we know what we are dealing with here:

And for those without flash:


These are all the things I was tempted to get.
