Costume Encounters of the Fabric Kind

In keeping with Dean Maegen’ s theme “What’s That Fabric?” the Costume Exhibit theme is “Costume Encounters of the Fabric Kind”.  Costume Encounters will showcase every and all types of costumes with one caveat: each submission for donation to display is also required to submit swatches of the fabrics/materials used in making their creation, which will then be displayed along with the costume, and the swatches will be available to the patrons to touch. Your costume donation for display will NOT be available for patrons to touch. This is an opportunity for patrons to see how a fabric/material “works” in a costume and then to also be able to touch the material.

Submissions are due by June 30th.  The Exhibit Committee will be in touch with you no later than July 7th regarding acceptance of your submission(s).

Logistics: Display setup will be on Thursday between 2pm and 7pm in the Hidden Hills room.  The take down will be a little different than in the past. Take down will be Sunday from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. The Costume Exhibit is sharing the same space in Hidden Hills as the Sunday Tea so it is important to have your donation(s) removed from the space by 1:00 p.m. on Sunday.  If you are not able to teardown during 11:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. permission will need to be given to the Costume Exhibit committee to take down your costume. The Exhibit Committee will be in touch after selecting submissions to discuss how to display your donation(s).

Thank you again for your interest in displaying. Please send your completed form(s) and photo(s) to costumecollegeexhibit@nullgmail.com.
