Costume-Con 26? What's that? What's a Costume-Con?

A major part of my life right now is working as the chair of Costume-Con 26, to be held in April 2008. If you've never heard of it, here's a bit of information. Feel free to re-post the following if you like:

Costume-Con is a premiere venue for professional and hobbyist costumers to meet, compete, share, and socialize.

Costume-Con 26 ( in San Jose, April 25-28, 2008, welcomes space cadets, living history afficianados, reenactors, textile designers, theater designers, fursuiters, mascots, cosplayers, fantasy costumers, costume professionals and folks who just like to dress up! We look forward to mixing it up with all types of costumers (and those who appreciate costumes, such as photographers and artists).
