There is still time to sign up for the 2007 version of the USITT Costume Symposium. Costuming in the Entertainment Industry, to be held August 8 though 10 in Orlando, Florida, will allow participants an inside look into the process of costuming in themed entertainment.
A wide variety of panels and tours is planned to highlight this segment of the industry including special considerations; the process of creating, tracking, and caring for large costume inventories; the design process; how people are transformed into mice, ducks, bears, dogs, and other characters; and employment opportunities.
Professionals from area theme parks and entertainment venues including Walt Disney World, Cirque du Soleil, Universal Studios, Sea World, and Busch Gardens will present panels.
