Our Interests:

We love all kinds of costumes: Science Fiction costumes, historical costumes, movie costumes, theatrical costumes, fantasy costumes, Ren Faire costumes, LARP costumes, Halloween costumes, etc. We are also interested in costumes as textile art and wearable art. We cover all aspects of costuming from researching, documenting, creating, wearing, re-purposing and storing.

Our Activities:

We meet monthly in a central Houston restaurant in order to share costume ideas, construction advice, material techniques, and convention information. We have participated in charitable events in costume. We also have sponsored demos, panel discussions, and presentations on costumes and costuming at conventions and in-house classes.

Our History:

We started the Houston Costumes Group on Meetup several years ago, and then moved the entire group to Yahoo Groups. We have recently reactivated the Meetup group and are combining it with the Yahoo group which already has one or two dozen active members. We are also located at HoustonCostumes.Org and have additional club photos there.

Our Philosophy:

Sewing skills are not required. Some members make costumes using glue, tape, pins, or other fasteners. We welcome all levels of creativity and skill.
