Open Costume Lab

Dress up as the amazing species of our ecosystem

A costume made from a mushroom? A mask with the scent of lilac, or face paints as a water bear?

At Dutch Design Week we are hosting an open costume lab where we invite fashion designers, artists and you too, to make costumes of amazing species from our ecosystem. For a whole week there is room for experiment and design research to mimic various species in fabric and other materials.

Your design in the DIY-guide 

Our ultimate goal is to "hack" the real carnival 2022 with as many biodiversity costumes as possible. We want to activate a big group of people to dress up as an 'inhuman species' during the festivities, and help to raise awareness for biodiversity of our planet. 

To give this project a good kickstart, and to inspire more people we are creating a DIY-guide to Inhuman Carnaval. The craziest, most beautiful, original, outstanding and inspiring costumes and techniques that are created in the lab, are published in the guide. Maybe your design will make it to the guide too!
