alexandercostumeforeric01True Blood is everywhere at Comic-Con this weekend!  Have you ever wondered how they come up with those incredible outfits?  How do they pick out those great, hairy, barbarian warrior costumes Eric and his men wore in the recent flashback to when he was ‘made’ a vampire by Godric 1000 years ago in “Never Let Me Go“? Or how do they come up with the wild and crazy threads that bleeding edge Lafayette wears on a weekly bases?

Today at Comic-Con there will be a panel discussion on costume design in which True Blood wardrobe stylist Audrey Fisher will be participating.  The details are:
