Do you enjoy sewing, costuming, history, fantasy, or designing?
If you said yes, then you will want to know about Costume College®. This is a yearly event put on by the Costumer's Guild West Inc.
Costume College® this year is being held at Warner Center Marriott in Woodland Hills, California, on July 29 - August 1, 2011.
"Hands on" is our primary method of teaching at Costume College. We offer an extensive selection of lectures, workshops, and demonstrations targeting every level of costumer (i.e., beginner, amateur, semiprofessional, professional, and just people who like to dress-up). We offer well over 100 classes presented by more than 65 teachers and cover every imaginable topic! Mixed into these classes will be a collection of classes making up our special bonus track on the topic of Medieval Dress: Glorious Gothic to Artistic Reform
We also feature a Time Traveler's Gala, Fantasy Tea, Costumer's Marketplace and many other fun events.
