COSTUME-CON is an annual 4-day conference about costumes! All forms of costuming are welcome, including historical recreation, anime, comics,
video games, fantasy, sci-fi, theatrical/film/TV costumes, millinery, fursuits, and more.
Costume-Con is a "travelling" international-level convention, and is in a different city and run by a different committee each year, so every year is a little different. It's also *4 whole days* -- events start Friday morning and run until mid-afternoon Monday, plus optional tours and activities on the Thursday and/or Tuesday!
Costume-Con has only been in Toronto once before, and that was in 1995 -- so don't miss this fantastic opportunity to show your stuff, schmooze, learn and share with other costumers.
There is an all-historical costume contest on the Sunday of the con, in which entries can be either totally-accurate recreations of historical or ethnic/cultural dress, or crazy interpretations thereof (like Egyptian Tudor).
The con is also seeking experts who would be interested in giving presentations and/or workshops on various costume-related topics and techniques.
