Are you new around here? Check out these programming items designed just for you!

Welcome to Costume-Con! - Friday at 11 am and Saturday at 9 am

Let us be the first to welcome you to your first Costume-Con. We'll try to address all the little things that make Costume-Con different, and help you orient yourself to all that's on offer.


Masquerade Basics (panel) - Friday at noon

Whether you're entering the masquerade or only just now thinking about doing so in the future, we'll cover what you can expect; from registration through rehearsals, in the green room and after you've come off the stage.


What is the ICG? (panel) - Friday at 3 pm

What is the International Costumers Guild and how is it involved with Costume-Con? What are the benefits to being a member and how does one go about finding a chapter local to them?


Ice Breakers (meetup) - Friday at 5 pm

Whether you're new to costuming or just new to Costume-Con, come mix and mingle with others in a similar boat. Find a new friend to sit with at the social or bond with someone who's also competing for the first time.
