Having a (Costume) Ball

Kostume Kult celebrates New York's best fancy dress at the 2019 Alt.Oscars

In the city that never sleeps, a devoted collective of tailors, make-up artists, hatters, and papier-maché aficionados routinely works through the night to craft astounding outfits. By day, these masters of disguise might work on Wall Street or teach middle school, but come sundown they are Kostume Kult, a band committed to whimsy and artistic expression. NYCityLens followed Founder Jim Glaser and Event Producer Nina Beatrix through the group’s annual awards ceremony, the Alt.Oscars, held on Feb. 24th at The National Arts Club in Manhattan. Part watch party, part costume contest, the event spoofs the Academy Awards and celebrates New York’s talented community of costumers.
