Costuming Guest
Matthew Penick is a professional costumer and fitness enthusiast, as well as the owner of costume and prop company Ribbons and Rivets, which he founded in 2009. A self-taught leatherworker, he made his first suit of armor in college out of scraps and remnants from the local Tandy. In fact, that very first suit of armor is still in action (having received numerous upgrades) and is now the award-winning Nightwalker armor set, which can be seen in several short films, a documentary in progress, and a feature length movie, “The Gamers 3: Hands of Fate”. Although it was created primarily as a leatherworking business, Ribbons and Rivets has since incorporated a variety of materials to bring designs and characters to life and is known for attention to detail and screen accuracy. Matthew enjoys doing workshops and demos on leather work and patterning, and is always happy to talk shop with fellow costumers.
