Whether you are new or experienced, whether your interest is in fabric, thread, wigs or props , we welcome you! Midwest Costume Academy is for one and all, and we are excited to be bringing our costume workshop to the Greater Metropolitan St. Louis Area.

There will be a variety of speakers in attendance to help teach at the Gateway Center. Professors, professionals, and peers shall be your guide in learning more about costuming, theater, or fashion.  New attendees to the world of cosplay and costuming will find basic classes that will help them in getting started, while veterans of the craft can sit in on a number of classes covering a variety of materials and techniques.
