Something Wicked(ly) Cool This Way Comes…

by Sean Burgess 04 Aug 2016 1 comment

The Yaya Han Collection of cosplay fabrics at Jo-Ann Stores is about to get a whole lot cooler... Starting in September, we are adding 26 brand new fabrics to the collection across 10 different categories!

While the initial collection launched in March focused heavily on stretch materials and across-the-board basics for cosplay designs, the new expansion line has a much more organic and lived-in feel. Lots of woven materials made from natural fibers. As we unveil the new line, you’ll see that many of them have a hand-made quality that makes them perfect for a broad range of characters — from medieval fantasy to sci-fi and everything in-between. 

There is a little something for everyone though. In addition to the distinctly desert-type fabrics, we’re also expanding on the popular Carbon Fiber of the first collection by offering it in three new colors — purple, red and white. We’re also adding to our brocades with new patterns and new colors that are even richer and are ideal for medieval, Renaissance and Game of Thrones style designs. We’re also introducing an amazing textured fabric with a raised hexagon pattern that will be right at home on modern superhero costumes…

But today we’re giving you a sneak peak of one of the fabrics that has generated the most excitement for everyone that has seen it.

Meet Desert Robe! It’s a heavy looking woven material that has an amazing weight and texture. It’s thick and it’s soft and it looks perfectly worn in. Despite looking heavy and draping beautifully, the material itself remains airy and is easy to work with. Most interestingly, the fabric is double sided, made from carefully chosen contrasting colors. We’re offering it in:

  • Brown and Ivory
  • Black and Red
  • Black and Ivory
  • and Gray and Ivory

So you have the choice of leaving the inside of your design raw and taking advantage of that contrasting color, or using a double thickness and making them both the same!

We can’t wait to see what you come up with… All four colors of the Desert Robe will be available at Jo-Ann Stores in just a few weeks. In the meantime, check out these photos and keep your eye out for details of the other new fabrics, both here and on social media.

Had an opportunity to touch this fabric at NYCC. I love it so much I can’t wait for it, the red and black one would be amazing for my new costume. It is light and soft and looks fantastic! I hope this will be available soon, I want to order it to Lithuania.

What is Lorem Ipsum? Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum. Why do we use it? It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
