MisCon 25 MisCon Staff
Beth Stoops is a journeyman costumer from the Pacific Northwest, recently transplanted to the bay area of California. She sews many of her own clothes and household items. Her theory about sewing is that clothing should be comfortable, allow a full range of motion, and have a generally high level of utility. She particularly focuses on strong, solid finish work sewn on strong, durable fibers. While she wears mostly loose tunics, in her ideal world, corsets, kilts, plus-fours and pantaloons would be an everyday occurrence. That said, her absolute favorite thing to make is pants.
As an author, Stoops is raunchy, yet refined, comedic, yet dark. Her stories have a local flavor and a running joke that all good things hail from, or end up in, Montana.
