Creative costume competition at the NCA convention

A creative style competition has been added to the timetable for National Costumers Association convention, which is taking place from 18 – 21 July, 2019 at the Crowne Plaza in downtown Kansas City, USA.

The new competition will see each participating shop receive the same mystery box – they simply have to use the entire contents to create a costume for the Runway Show at the Conference. There are already only four slots left for this event, which is themed ‘All Jazzed Up!’.

This year’s NCA convention also includes a wide range of different educational classes, from RJ Haddy (finalist on FaceOff season two) leading a class on airbrushing and different types of face paint right through to Tyson Murphy (owner of theatrial store A to Z) explaining the best ways to look outside the box and explore new avenues within social media.

Other classes focus on imaginative cosplay, changing store displays, how to use 3D Tinsley Transfers and the benefits of basic balloon art and the ease of upselling balloons in your store (courtesy of Marion Bradley, NCA president and owner of Discount Costumes).

The National Costumers Association is a professional organisation promoting the artistic, historical, educational, and social nature of costuming. It encourages ethical business standards and creativity, offering a wide selection of member benefits in addition to a Buyer’s Group.
