Getting Involved

>>> Call out for fantasy costumes <<<
As part of our new exhibition Games: Enter the Unknown (opening 20 July – 13 October) Lincoln Museum and Usher Gallery are looking for fantasy costumes to display.

If you have made your own costume for TTRPG, Steampunk, LARPing, or just because you love costumes, we want to hear from you. All you need to do is send us a photo of the costume and a bit of information about it and why you made it, via email to lincolnmuseum@lincolnshire.gov.uk by Friday 21st June and we will get back to you to confirm if your costume will be included in the exhibition by Friday 28th June. Your costume will be on display for a short time in a designated, museum-secure case.

Please note, the costume needs to fit/be adapted to fit in a space that measures:56cm width x 70cm depth x 162cm height. If the costume has multiple parts, we can discuss best display methods and options.

We can’t wait to see your creations!
