NPC Costume Donation Drive - Tabards Double SP was created by Kirsten (Lotano)
Hey everyone! The NPC costuming is in need of some basic tabards. Specifically we are looking for black, gray, brown, green, red or blue tabards (solid colors please and more of the black/gray, brown/green than red and blue). Typically between cost of materials and time, each tabard would be worth about 400 SP. From now until December we are offering double SP for each tabard. Yes, that's 800 service points per tabard! And for those who sew and are in the know - we are offering 1200 PER TABARD for reversible tabards of any combination of the two colors requested.

Don't know how to sew you say? Talk to your sewing friends, offer to purchase the supplies, broadcloth solids usually run about $5 per yard, and split the service points:

Symphony Broadcloth Polyester Blend Fabric In Solid Colors
Detailshttp://www.joann.com/symphony-broadcloth-solid-quilt-fabric/prd10006.html
$2.49-$4.99/yd

Know how to sew but you're not sure how to make a tabard? There's a handy article attached to help.

I will start taking these donations at the October event and will answer any questions as well as I can. Take advantage now to help improve NPC garb AND get the SP before the KR Banquet for a sweet, sweet cash-out!

Are we talking about a basic rectangle with a hole in the middle? With finished seams, of course.
Or is there a need for more intricate work?
What dimensions work best as a generic tabard?

Thanks

Just the basic tabard - rectangle with a head hole, finished seams and neck facing. The link I posted suggests 2 1/2 yards of fabric. Cut off the 1/2 yard to make the neck facing. Cut the rest lengthwise to the measurement from your left to right shoulder plus 1 inch. Do the head hole with facing, finish the edges - voila, 800 service points. Construction should be less than an hour. Like I said though, reversible ones are twice the material (actually a little less because you don't need the 1/2 yard for neck facing) - but the exact same amount of work and will gain you 1200 sp per :)

Question for you! Is broadcloth the only type of fabric you would like used for these tabards?
Just asking because I have fleece in some of the requested colors left over from another project.

Finn - That sounds fantastic. Make sure my name is on the outside of the box and I will make sure to get your SP reward amount to the card marshals. Also, put you player # and full OOG name inside so we can make sure and get you the SP.

With the announcement of the new SP reward amounts, I get to happily say that these tabards are going to be worth EVEN MORE SP!

I have edited the amounts below:

I received one donation of several great tabards in October. I will be in Logistics for sign-in through the November event, so keep them coming!

Quick note - I managed to unearth a LOT of blue/black reversible tabards when I cleared out the pile of fallen garb. Grey & red are the two colors most under-represented from the list Kirsten provided (we have zero of those); green/brown we have a small handful but could definitely use more.

I went to 39th St in Manhattan and haggled a great price on cotton/poly fabric at $2 a yard. I bought a bunch.
The colors I could get were: black, white, red, green.
What combo of reversible tabards would be useful to logistics?
green/white? red/black? or some other combo?
I have a nice method for doing reversibles (the black/blue ones in logistics were the ones I made) and can crank out a good number of them by the Nov. event. I'm not sure exactly how many yet - I have to do some calculations, maybe 8 of each set.
I couldn't find grey or brown, which seem to be in demand. Sorry.

Let me know the combos and I'll make the reversibles.

Any combo is fantastic. For November we need a lot of green, black, gray and brown - so making green/white and red/black reversible works great! That way we can use the green sides and the black sides. Thank you so much!
