The Art, The Craft, the Joy of… COSTUME!
Are you interested in Costume?

So 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. NoeL is composed of costumers, teachers, artists, and interested people who share the love of costuming. (And a few engineers, even!) For information about the date, time, and place of our next meeting, check our meetings page.
Our members are scattered over the greater New England area. You can also find concentrations of costumers at regional Science Fiction Conventions like Arisia (see www.arisia.org) and the World Science Fiction Conventions (see www.worldcon.org).
Members of the Northern Lights also enjoy Costume-Con, the annual conference presented by costumers around the world for costumers and all about costuming. Costume-Cons provide presentations, seminars and workshops in various costuming skills as well as competitions for the best in the world of amateur costuming.
