Costume Couture Workshop for Teens at TCPL: Drag Teen

ITHACA— Tompkins County Public Library invites teens to learn about using makeup and contouring to alter their appearance at this workshop, from 4:00 to 6:00 pm on Monday, June 24, in the Library’s Makerspace.

At this workshop, local drag artists Tilia Cordata and Kitana Scofflaw will show teens how to use makeup and contouring to change their appearance for drag, cosplay, costuming, or any other purpose. In learning to alter the shape of the face, participants can embody any character they can imagine. Basic makeup and applicators will be available, but participants can bring their own as well.

This is the fourth installment of the 2019 Costume Couture series, where teens are invited to design, construct, and customize costume pieces for a wide variety of hobbies such as cosplay, LARPing, Renaissance Faires, or just a general love of costuming. Additional workshops will cover topics such as resin casting, using craft foam or Worbla to create props and armor, basic sewing, fantasy makeup, and more.

Space is limited at this free program for teens in grades 6 through 12, or their homeschool equivalent. Registration is required at: If it is necessary to cancel after having registered, please cancel online or alert the librarian to allow someone else to participate.

For more information, contact Teen Services at or 607 272-4557, extension 274.
