Open Costume Lab

22 Jun 2022

We are hosting an Open Costume Lab where we invite fashion designers, artists and complete beginners, to make costumes of the amazing species from our ecosystem. In the Open Costume Lab we support you to make a costume, offering a place for experimentation and design research on how to mimic various species in fabric and other materials.

Open Costume Lab - every Wednesday 14:00 till 18:00.

Species costume created in the Open Costume Lab - Inhuman Carnaval at Dutch Design Week 2021 At Dutch Design Week 2021 we are hosting an open costume lab where one of the participants created this costume inspired by animals in our ecosystem.     Caroline Aravicius


Do you feel lost - and don’t know where to start? We are collecting DIY Instructables and research questions that can help you to begin with your costume. From creating an octopus dress, making mineral sensory bags to mimic bacteria to questions like: Are you invisible to humans? Hibernating? Throwing off your colours in spring? Jumping around?

Or get inspired by Fred’s research story on how to transform into Magnesium.
