Cosplay at Jetpack

Cosplay by McCall's

Cosplay by McCall's is a huge leader in providing good quality, easy to follow sewing patterns for the cosplay community. Seeing a lack in the diversity of patterns available to cosplayers, McCall's has made it a point to provide a wide variety of patterns that cosplayers can alter and interchange with other patterns making the cosplay imagination, limitless! Jetpack comics is proud to have them as a sponsor for our 2nd annual Free Comic Book Day Cosplay Contest, and is happy to announce that they have donated several amazing patterns as part of the prizes for this year's contest.

SUPPORT THE ORG THAT SUPPORTS OUR FREE COMIC BOOK DAY FESTIVAL

Rochester Main Street (the people that make our Free Comic Book Day Festival possible), our favorite non-profit organization, has teamed up with TD Bank and you can help RMS earn money...and it costs you NOTHING!  If you have a TD Bank account all you have to do is ask to have it linked to The Rochester Main Street Affinity Program!  In honesty, it took my teller 10 minutes to figure out what that meant, but it happened - - eventually.  Now Rochester Main Street earns money based on the balances that I (and Jetpack Comics) carries with their bank.  It does not cost you a PENNY but it assures that TD Bank donates money to Rochester Main Street.  ...and for you it means that the Free Comic Book Day Festival continues in full force!  It takes a few minutes but it helps out your comic book community!  Do your part today!
