Costume college: day 2 – Orientation
I am so tried and it was only the first official day of Costume college. I’m going to split the day up and try to get the photos up this weekend. But I fear it won’t happen as planned because of all the fun & work involved in enjoying and learning during my time here.
Anyway, to start the event off right I went to the morning orientation. I’ll just share some photos below:
Looking around you can see the hustle and bustle of the morning as people are getting checked in and finding there way around, around the orientation happening in the Lobby. I couldn’t help but sneak away and take photos of people in costume:
Those attending received a nify pink ribbon stating we were “First Time Attendee’s” to wear on our badges. Makes asking questions easier as people know right away it is your first time there.
The head of volunteers (in the white wig for orientation) is Elizabeth McCash. The two ladies looking over paperwork were Cathy Hay and her editor Marion. But then, you probably know that since you have written for Your Wardrobe Unlock’d. And the documenter was Chaz Boston Baden who has a website with lots of photos on it. He was also in charge of the photographers at Costume Con 26.
Historical costumes are really beautiful. My closet is usally full of old costumes from years gone past. Many dress up parties and a few toss-aways from those nights when my girlfriend wants to “spice up” our relationship. Every Halloween is the same though. Who needs to spend money on buying a new costume? Just raid the closet.
