Savannah Costuming Academy is a non-profit organization that focuses on building the community of experienced costumers, cosplayers, and thespians who share our experience and knowledge with the members of our group. We are based out of Savannah Georgia, and operate similar to a costuming and cosplay school. Each of our senior members has many years of experience when it comes to fabricating clothing and costumes, from simple stitched garments to hard formed amour pieces and props. Through events and workshops we attend or host, we share these skills and experiences with people willing to learn how to make better costumes in a safe and fun environment.
WHAT WE OFFER!
An entry point no matter your skill level. Beginners can learn the basics of costume construction from basic sewing to basic foamwork, etc. Advanced members can learn techniques ranging from basic patterning, to working with more difficult fabrics, to weathering techniques and more. Well-experienced members can learn techniques from advanced sewing, to advanced patterning, to advanced armor skills, etc. All members are trained at our hosted workshops where we help attendees build and complete entire costume pieces by offering demonstrations on techniques and personal assistance when needed.
In addition to costuming skills, our members are trained in marketing skills to run our booth at our many events to ensure consistent communication to prospective members. We also have a dedicated space to run all of our workshops and store basic supplies. At our workshops, you can leave the mess at home and save money by using some of the many tools and supplies we keep in stock such as sewing machines, dremels, thread, paints, adhesives, power tools, and other common items that our members are able to use without having to add to the expense of their costumes.
