The International Costumers Guild (ICG) is dedicated to the promotion and education of costuming as an art form in all its aspects. It also advocates on behalf of its members and the costuming community in matters of public interest related to the art and practice of costuming. The ICG was formed in 1985 to bring hobbyist and professional costumers from around the world together, and to foster local educational and social costume events.
We welcome everyone with an interest in the art of costuming. Our members include historic re-enactors, professional, educational and community theatrical costumers, science fiction fans,renaissance festival participants, and a all those who are interested in the making, wearing and display of costumes.
ICG chapters enable members in a geographic location to meet regularly to trade tips, skills, and ideas. ICG Special Interest Groups (SIGs) enable members worldwide with an interest in some aspect or genre of costuming to pursue their interest by sharing information through online forums and social media, and organizing programs at conventions.
The ICG also offers advice and expertise to the costuming community, as well as to print, broadcast, and online media worldwide.
We welcome you to our website, invite you to explore it, and hope we've kindled your interest in joining our community!
