COSTUME-CON is an annual conference about costumes. The convention has its roots in science fiction and fantasy conventions and historic re-enactment type events, but all forms of costuming are welcome, including anime, fursuit, etc. Costume-Con is a "travelling" national-level convention, and is in a different city and run by a different committee each year.

OTHER RELATED COSTUME-CON SITES (yellow menu buttons):

THE FOUNDER'S AWARD (lavender menu button):
Karen Dick, the Founder of Costume-Con, started handing out a special FOUNDER'S AWARD, starting in 2005. This award is given for exemplary service to Costume-Con, exemplary achievement by costumer(s) at Costume-Con, etc. To see the recipients, click on the menu button below.
THE WHOLE COSTUMER'S CATALOGUE ONLINE (red menu button):
This invaluable resource book for costumers went out of print in 1998 after 14 editions. It was always a Herculean task to update, which is what led to its demise in print form. We are happy to announce that it will be revived here, in on-line form. Please be patient while we convert the old files to HTML and then attempt to update them to present-day and make them searchable.
SERVICE MARK HOLDERS AND CONTACT INFORMATION (lime green menu buttons):
For the bio of Costume Con's founder and current Service Mark holder, or for contact information for Costume-Con the entity, click on the lime green buttons below.
If you have questions about a specific Costume-Con, you should go to that site and ask that committee.
THIS SITE IS UNDER CONSTRUCTION!!!
Please check back frequently, as some of the menu buttons may not be hooked up yet, but this site will continue to grow, and we wanted to get the aforementioned links (or placeholders for links) up as soon as possible.
