Costume College 2016 just wrapped up one week ago! If you’re unfamiliar with Costume College, it’s an annual costuming conference with lots of lovely classes and evening events. It’s one of my favorite times of year because it means learning new tricks, visiting with friends and meeting new ones, and having a chance to wear some of the fabulous outfits we’ve all created. It’s open to all skill levels, from beginner through advanced, and a great chance to get involved and learn new skills and connect with others in our interest groups.
I didn’t take as many photos as in years past (see my prior post of Tips for Surviving a Costume Event While Pregnant), so I will share all the photos I took in one post instead of breaking them down into days. I’m sorry I didn’t take more pictures.

It was such a whirlwind weekend. I look forward to Costume College every year and was thankful I was able to attend at the last minute. If you’re able to go in the future I highly recommend it!
