How to Join

The International Costumers’ Guild (ICG) is an affiliation of amateur, hobbyist, and professional costumers dedicated to the promotion and education of costuming, including cosplay, as an art form in all its aspects. Costumers join the ICG by joining a local or regional ICG chapter and becoming part of the international costuming community. Visit the ICG Chapters page to locate a chapter near you.

If there no chapter nearby, it is easy to start a new chapter if you have at least five other people in your area who are also interested in costuming! Details and requirements are located on the Starting a New Chapter page.

Not ready to start a chapter? You can still join certain chapters as a remote member, or become a member of the Silicon Web Costumers’ Guild, the ICG’s online virtual chapter! Most chapters have web sites that include information on how to join, as well as events and chapter activities.
