What is it?

Mark your calendars for BeyondCon 2015 — a costuming relaxacon where you can learn new costuming techniques and ideas, share techniques and tips you have learned, and meet and mingle with others who share your passion for costuming.

Participate in panels and workshops on a variety of useful topics. Look for demos, discussions, hands-on panels and a private hospitality suite where you can talk with other costumers, relax, and further enjoy your convention experience!

BeyondCon is sponsored by the Beyond Reality Costumers Guild.

Here are a few pictures from BeyondCon 2012, BeyondCon 2011, BeyondCon 2010, BeyondCon 2008, and BeyondCon 2004.


Our theme this year is “Up Close and Far Away” — focusing on techniques and ideas for making your costumes effective when viewed from the back of an audience, or seen from within arms’ length — or both!

Saturday night will feature a social and dance with a theme of “Broadway Opening Night.” Show off your latest costume, or come as you are.
