Costume Designers Guild Announces San Diego Comic-Con 2017 Panels

2016 Comic Con – Hall Costume Award Recipient

Our friend Joe Kucharski, the Editor of Tyranny of Style (which you should check out), has all of the details on the return of The Costume Designers Guild at San Diego Comic-Con this year.

Attendees will be able to get a behind the scenes look at costume design from the experts, including designers for Wonder Woman, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, Thor Ragnarok, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Stranger Things, Preacher, Black Panther, and many more.

Also returning this year is the fan-favorite Hall Costume Awards, where guild members will hand out prizes for their favorite costumes that they see in the halls of the exhibit floor. Want to win? Maybe hang around their panels on Friday or Saturday.

Here’s a look at the Costume Designers Guild Comic-Con panels for this year:
