About Us

We are a teaching guild that focuses on the art and education of costuming/cosplay. We have members with more than three decades of experience and would love to meet you and help you with your costuming needs.

Founded in 2015, the NOVA Costumers' Guild is an affiliated chapter of the International Costumers' Guild. We take part in multiple events each year and seek new and innovative ways to share our passion for costume design and creation with those around us. While primarily situated in the Northern Virginia region, we accept members from not only the whole Commonwealth of Virginia, but from anywhere else that wants to join us. To foster camaraderie and participation of our more distant members, we try to always provide an option to attend meetings from afar via Google Hangouts.
