Costumers' Lost Weekend 2013 Panels

One of the best parts of our Costumers' Lost Weekend is that we can finally get together and learn things from one another via our  panels.  This year is going to be even better with our Sunday workshops.

Panelists are beginning to think about joining us at CLW in the Summer.  One thing they have all asked the Committee is "what kind of panel would you like?"  Well, that is my question to you.  If there is a certain kind of panel you would like to see presented, please let us know and we will see if we can find someone who is able to present it.

CLW Panel Survey

And if you have a panel that you would like to present to our attendees, please go ahead and submit your application.  If by chance we do receive more applications than time to present, we will hold the extras for the following year, or see if we can add a class day to our Guild Calendar.

Picnic with the Pixies

If you follow the going's on of the DFWCG, you may have noticed that we sure do love a good outdoor picnic.  For several years now, our Georgian Picnic in the Fall has been quite the success. When we organized our first Georgian Picnic in 2009, we had no idea that it would be so successful that it would gain a permanent place in our event calendar.

This spring, we have decided to double up on our picnic fun.  On March 23, 2013 we will be gathering at the Grapevine Botanical Gardens to have a Picnic with the Pixies.

Eventbrite - Picnic with the Pixies

Picnic with the Pixies is an outdoor fantasy costumed event for all ages.  We plan on playing some fun games and since it is a picnic, feel free to bring some food to munch on.  And as always, costumes are encouraged, but not required for participation.  

In case you missed our fabulous 2012 Georgian Picnic, many of our atteendees wrote recaps of the event:

We survived the Titanic (well, most of us!)

The DFW Costumers Guild donned their Edwardian finery and adventured to the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History's Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition. Our boarding date was Saturday, January 12th and all but one of our passengers survived the excursion. 

We were a spiffy group and enjoyed our boarding experience. We later adjourned to La Madeleine’s for refreshments.

Look for our next outing! We'll be joining a Safari to the wilds at the Fort Worth Zoo on Saturday, February 23rd!
