What is NoeL?

We are the New England area chapter of the International Costumers’ Guild (ICG), which is a worldwide organization of costume professionals and hobbyists. We are New Englanders from all walks of life who share the love of costuming.  If you are interested in joining us, reach out  on the Contact Us page.  If you are looking for a group closer to your home,  check out the list of regional ICG chapters.

While our members are scattered over the greater New England area, you can also find concentrations of costumers at regional and national conventions like Arisia and the World Science Fiction Convention.  You can find a growing list of cons and events on our Conventions page.

Members of the Northern Lights also enjoy Costume-Con, the annual conference presented by costumers for costumers. Costume-Cons provide presentations, seminars and workshops in various costuming skills as well as competitions to showcase the skills of amateur costumers.  You can see some of their efforts in our Galleries.
