We meet monthly in a central Houston restaurant in order to share costume ideas, construction advice, material techniques, and convention information.

Houston Costume began in 2004 the Houston Costume Meetup (at Meetup.Com), meeting monthly in an open social. In 2005 we moved to Yahoo!Groups and began holding some events in private homes (including demos, parties, and business meetings) while continuing with our monthly open social. Our members have worked on masquerades at science fiction conventions in Texas and other states, competed (and often won!) in masquerades in Houston, Austin and other cities, contributed to costume displays, participated in charitable events in costume, and taken part in demos, panel discussions, and presentations on costumes and costuming.

Please Note!! Sewing skills are not required. Some members make costumes using glue, tape, pins, or other fasteners.

Anyone living in or near Houston is welcome to attend the open socials, join our Yahoo!Group, and get involved in Houston Costume!
