The Australian Costumers' Guild is a non profit organisation whose aims are to encourage development of skills and sharing of knowledge in subjects relating to costume design, construction and care. We do this by providing opportunities for discussion and networking in a friendly, constructive environment via online forums, and local workshops and social events.
The styles of work by Guild members are unlimited; from detailed historical reproductions to eye opening science fiction styles; fantasy and fantastic costumes; there's recreations of theatre, film and TV designs; Fursuits and Mascots; Military Uniforms (historical and futuristic); Japanese Lolita styles and all forms of anime and western cartoon characters.
All varieties of costumers are welcome – from research through to construction – if it can be worn, we are interested in it!
It is our goal to provide a resource group in which costumers can find inspiration, technical help and new experiences, and to promote friendly communication and cooperation among costumers of all styles. We also provide an outlet for exhibiting our talents in various forms: costumed events, displays at fairs and conventions, and of course, the National Costumers' Ball held each year.
The Australian Costumers' Guild is the ideal opportunity to network with others who love costumes.
