This is a group for all types of Costuming and Cosplay in the Colorado Springs area. There are multiple conventions and other reasons year round to wear a costume. This meetup group will focus on creating costumes - costume ideas, thrift store outings, creating costumes, crafting gadgets, & props, hair/makeup and maybe even special effects and sharing skills and information. We will also focus on places to wear the costumes like conventions and other events that encourage cosplay. So whether you are an Anime fan, a Sci Fi & Fantasy or Steampunk fan, or just love costuming from theater and/or movies, you might find something here. Whether you learn something new, share your interests, find out about cosplay events or meet some folks who share your interests, this is a group to join. After all costumes aren't just for kids and they aren't just for Halloween anymore.
Let's go to Starfest, one of the nation's oldest fan-run science fiction conventions! It has grown into a regional celebration of media entertainment and includes several "sub" conventions that take place under the umbrella of the Starfest Entertainment Convention.
