Add hidden pockets to your costume or prop. It’s an easy way to carry around important items like your con badge, cell phone and wallet. If you can’t add a hidden pocket, aim for a bag that matches your character.
There are 3 types of pockets: contrast, cross cut, and bias cut and 11 sizes - see below.

We love our oversized handbags as much as the next girl - where else would we store our phone, keys, lipstick and dozens of miscellaneous items - but there’s always the problem of actually finding what you need under all that junk. Lucky for us, there’s a much better way to carry your things and stay organized without sacrificing style. This season, clothes with visible pockets have become the new standard for functional fashion. Looks like you won’t be missing anymore calls due to a stuffed bag. Plus, if you’ve already upgraded to an iPhone 6, the bigger pockets the better. See how to wear the pocket trend and shop our favorite pieces below.
On the Runway
Iceberg sent soft coats with minimal front pockets down the fall runway and Alexander Wang showed different-sized utility pockets on dresses and jackets, designed to hold specific essentials.
Every dress pattern I’ve found from the 1940s (except the most formal) was designed with pockets included. Every genuine dress I’ve tracked down from that period has pockets. Every dress! Pockets! And they’re proper pockets, deep pockets, stylish, cute, useful pockets! What the hell happened?
