The Costume College experience just kept getting better and better.
I was already in shock and awe at the fabulous costumes seen randomly
wandering about at Costume College, then there was also
The Cavalcade of Costume Exhibit
A banquet room full of dozens of complete costumes and accessories.
Many, many created by Costume Guild members and many items historical artifacts.
Every item had a wonderful description and the collections were amazing.
So many fantastic vintage hats that I actually got a little giddy :)
The garments were delightfully period correct right down to the shoes.
Unless it was a complete fantasy outfit.
The imagination and techniques used in the fantasy outfits were impressive.
This collection and exhibit of historical, fantastical and imaginative costumes was almost... overwhelming.
I easily took 100 pictures to try and capture the creativity, beauty and wonder of this exhibit.
