Tour Registration has been EXTENDED until Wednesday, June 29, 2022 at 11:59pm PDT.

The link to the Tours Registration form is available to all registered Costume College Students by going to and logging into your CGW account profile. The link will be the bottom pink button on the right side of the page that says “Costume College Tours Registration”.

Welcome to the Tours Department of your Costume College weekend.  Taking a Tour with us is a great way to get to know other attendees! If you don’t know a soul when you arrive, you will by the end of the tour.

Signing up for Tours:  Tours are treated just like the workshop classes so check your scheduling and preferences very carefully, and sign up quickly!!!  (Like all workshop classes, tours are not transferable, and you cannot sell your spot.)  Only Costume College registered students can sign up for tours.

Tours, like workshops, are an additional fee, which includes transportation, snacks and water onboard the bus.  Please contact the Tours chair for more information about specific tours, timing, etc.

All tours gather in the lobby of the hotel, and depart at a specific time.  Tour return times vary due to LA traffic.

Minors: All minors regardless of age must be accompanied on the tour by a parent or guardian.  Both minor and parent/guardian must purchase tickets to the tour.



Downtown Los Angeles Fabric District Tour

Hope those of you who are signed up for the Fabric District Tour have brought lots of money and big suitcases to take all your wonderful purchases home.

The bus for the tour will depart the hotel promptly at 9:00 AM on Monday, August 1, 2022.  We will be gathering in the main hotel lobby and you will be directed from there to the buses.  On the buses there will be water and snacks for the day and storage incase you are leaving for home from downtown and need to bring your luggage with you.  There is also ample storage for your purchases on the trip back to the hotel from town.

The buses will remain parked in town all day so that you can take a break and put your feet up or unload what you have already purchased so you can carry even more.

The buses will leave downtown promptly at 4:00 PM.  Leaving any later than that guarantees a very long ride back to the hotel in really horrendous Los Angeles traffic.  If you are late getting back to the bus you will be responsible for your own transportation back to the hotel.

Be sure to wear comfortable shoes, bring sun screen and probably a hat.  But most of all, have fun.
