Omaha Costuming Day

If you haven't marked your calendars yet, Omaha Costuming Day is this Saturday. Have you picked out the classes you would like to take yet?

If you need something to display your costume on or just hold it while you work on it, build a Duct-Tape Dummy. Wondering what you can do with fabric if you can't thread a sewing machine, we have a Non-Sewn Costume class. And Cassie has done wonders with having to prick her fingers on those sharp pointy needles. Need a prop to get your Steampunk outfit started, detail a squirt gun into a Steampunk Gun. If you have been collecting honoraries over the years and need show them off, create your own Klingon Honor Sash and wear them proudly. Feel like a cat in human skin, create a set of Cat Ears and Tail for your next convention foray. With Peter Jackson working on The Hobbit, now would be the time to get ideas about costumes from Middle Earth: Hobbits, Elves, and Dwarves, Oh My! Take scraps and build a wonderful head dress to compliment your costume-robe. Or just bring a project you would like some help on and we will have people ready to assist you.

But come and meet fellow costumers, even if you don't think you are one. They can be contagious and fun. See you Saturday!


  1. Sounds like a great day planned. I hope things go well. I'll be busy in KC but have a great time.

  2. can we wear costume our?

  3. Are Renaissance costumes welcome? I know some fairies, odd royals, etc. who do the renaissance festivals in Omaha and surrounding areas. I pretty sure they don't know this group exists.
    I can pass on the info...

  4. Most definately and check out Nebraska Iowa Costuming Community on Facebook:!/pages/Nebraska-Iowa-Costuming-Community/196734807018633
