Fezzes, Stetsons, and bow ties are all cool.


We can fix it: For costume repairs, fans should visit the Costumers Anonymous of North Texas (CANT) room (Magnolia Room) just off the Main Gallery. Should your costume require more than superficial repair, you'll be escorted to the Mulberry room where they can take care of wardrobe malfunctions in private.

Costume Contest: Be a part of "The Greatest Show in the Galaxy" and show off your fannish finest on WhoFest's main stage. It's free for all WhoFest members.
