Hello, howdy, hola! The main goal of this meetup group is to gather individuals (21+) together at special events who have an inclination for being around or dressing up in various outfits and costumes. Right now this will concentrate on weekend conventions, fests, fairs, parties or other miscellaneous occasions throughout the year. It can get nostalgic, geeky, traditional to anywhere around and in between depending where it will expand, contort or twist to our liking. This is useful for those looking for a foot in the door to meet others or just like being around lively folks who do so. My first experience with the world of costuming was at the variety filled behemoth--comics, sci-fi, anime, celebrities: you name it!--known as Megacon back in 2005. Despite attending every year since, I didn't get my surge of inspiration till early 2012--as none other than Conan the Barbarian--and haven't looked back since! I'm frequently impressed by other people's outfits and I'm sure part of this group will be discussing just how to build onto a particular future project, among other random adventurous things.
