Talking With Video Game Costume Designer, Holly Conrad

by Rick Dakan

26 July 2010

Holly Conrad is a costume designer and an avid gamer. By costume designer, I mean sculptor, engineer, seamstress, and designer.
 

This week we have a special interview for you. We’ll be doing more interviews as time goes on, talking with people who’re not just gamers, but people who’ve been genuinely moved by their love of games.

Holly Conrad is a costume designer and an avid gamer. And by costume designer, I mean sculptor, engineer, seamstress, and designer. She recently became a minor internet celebrity with her audition video for a Joss Whedon produced documentary about Comic Con, in which she showed off the impressive set of Mass Effect 2 costumes that she’s been creating.
  
She took time from her busy schedule to talk about games and how they inspire.

Warning: There are some spoilers for Mass Effect 2 in theis discussion.

This podcast is also available via iTunes.

 

Rick Dakan is a regular contributor to the Moving Pixels blog as well as to the Gamma Testing podcast.
