Wyrd Con is an interactive storytelling convention. Storytelling can be accomplished through many tools, one of which is costuming.
Costuming is a form of expression that allows people to tell a unqiue story. In Los Angeles this year, at the Wyrdcon convention, people will have the opportunity to don costumes and tell stories through costuming as well as participate in interactive games and activities based on the role you are playing.
