COSTUME-CON is an annual conference with roots in science fiction and fantasy conventions and historic re-enactment events, but all forms of costuming are welcome, including cosplay, fursuit, museum, theatrical, and more. Costume-Con is a "traveling" national-level conference, and is held annually in different cities, run by different committees each year.

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.
