BeyondCon
 

What is it?

Mark your calendars for BeyondCon 2017 February 10th-12th, 2017. Beyondcon is 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 convention theme is: Back to Basics

Defeat the grey doldrums of winter with the warm companionship of a gaggle of costumers for a fun-filled weekend:

  • CHOOSING FABRIC
  • PRE-TREATING FABRIC
  • ADAPTING COMMERCIAL PATTERNS
  • RECTILINEAR GARMENTS
  • PATTERN GRADING/DRAFTING A SLOPER
  • MATCHING FABRIC PRINTS
  • SEAM FINISHES
  • PRESSING TECHNIQUES
  • HAND STITCHING
  • BASIC SEWING MACHINE CARE

A stellar round-up of experienced costumers and cosplayers will explore these subjects both for the novice and experienced participant, revisiting core skills of the craft.
