The Costume Page

By Julie Zetterberg Sardo
This site provides links to the history and design of costumes for the benefit of those who study and/or make costumes: costumers, students, historical re-enactors, science fiction fans, professionals, amateurs, dancers, theatrical costumers, trick-or-treaters, writers, researchers, and all those interested in fashion, textile art, and costume history. There are over 1,000 unique links listed on these pages to museums, Halloween costumes, how to make costumes, theatrical costuming, history of costuming, ethnic costumes, and much more.

Created in 1995-2007

"I love that this is an easy to use site that fosters professional collaboration and improvement of teaching and learning while providing tools for educators in a one stop place. The templates are easy to use. I've been using them lately for workshops and online courses as well as for creating and updating an educator web resource list. Updating on the fly is so easy. My sites look professional and are easy to navigate. In the past I've used them to help teachers with project planning, and would love to do that again.

Barbara is extremely responsive to my needs when I've made requests. This personal touch is extremely awesome!"
