John Barba
John Barba

John Barba is a local Missoula artist and cosplayer who got into MisCon and fandom at MisCon 27 because his kid runs MisCon and he couldn't escape it any longer.

In both his art and his cosplay, he works mostly with sheet metal, leather, fiberglass, and paint. Most of his artwork is the old art of chasing and repousse.

He has created a number of memorable costumes, including Indiana Jones, Iron Man, Magneto, a Cylon, Stan Lee, and the Rocketeer. In creating these costumes, he uses a variety of things, including pepakura, 3D printing, metalworking, leatherworking, building small electronics for light and sound, etc.

Patty writes books. You can find a complete list of titles elsewhere. You probably don't really care where she was born [Butte, MT] or what her favorite animal is [horse]. The list of jobs she's held over the years doesn't tell you as much about Patty as it does about which jobs were available at various times in our past. I could fill pages with various facts and tallies that detail the events of her life. Instead, I'd like to tell you a bit about who she is.

Katelynn Greenberg

I am a graduate of the Costume Design and Technology program at the University of Montana. I have been practicing the art of costume crafts for over 20 years. My first introduction was sitting in a laundry basket, at the age of 2, behind my mother who would sew for hours on end. Her mother did the same with her. When I was old enough to operate the machine, I did. I have always had a fascination with creating and fashion. Never did I think I could make a career out of both combined. I have designed both historical costume and modern. All things from creating custom jewelry to patterning a garment simply from a list of measurements. I am excited to share my love for what I do!
