<p align="center">I did not expect when moving to Fairbanks that I should
&nbsp;<br>

find much to interest me from a <a href="http://www.costumesocietyamerica.com/"> costume</a> point of view (Fairbanks is justly famous even
by Tara Maginnis</font></p>
+
within Alaska for casual functionalism in dress). I was pleasantly and repeatedly
 +
disappointed in that expectation. The astonishing variety of traditional dress found in museums using
 +
fish skins, walrus guts, porcupine quills, moose hair embroidery, beads, grasses, and
 +
every imaginable hide has made Alaska a complete orgy of new costume history sensations.</p>

Performs full-length company-written dramas in Native dance/pantomime style, in a

 +
 +
<p><strong>Patterns: </strong></p>
 +
 +
<p>The Cooperative Extension service of the University of Alaska Fairbanks
 +
puts out several patterns in pamphlet form in cooperation with the USDA. These patterns
 +
are modern renditions of traditional Alaskan clothing designs which are now used by many
 +
Native and nonnative inhabitants of the colder parts of Alaska. These pamphlets are sold
 +
at cost in the interest of teaching newcomers how to dress without breaking the bank or
 +
dying of hypothermia in a Fairbanks winter:
 +
<ul>
 +
  <li>The Cloth Parka, #72 - $.75</li>
 +
  <li>Fur Parka, #71 - $1.00</li>
 +
  <li>Tanning at Home #A-00320 - $1.00</li>
 +
  <li>Family Winter Clothing for Interior Alaska (informational pamphlet) -
 +
    Free</li>
 +
</ul>
 +
 +
<p>These pamphlets are chiefly of interest as examples of modern Alaskan
 +
Winter attire. It should be emphasized that these items are worn equally by Native and
 +
nonnative inhabitants in Fairbanks as they provide a good cheap alternative to the
 +
expensive (and more common) commercial down jackets. Local Alaskan sewing stores also sell
 +
full-size patterns for modern Alaskan parkas.</p>

The Costumer's Manifesto is written by Tara Maginnis, and proudly hosted by William Baker.

THE MANIFESTO IS MUTATING!  IT IS TURNING INTO A WIKI THAT CAN BECOME THE HIVE MIND OF ALL COSTUMERS, FINALLY LIVING UP TO IT'S SLOGAN: "COSTUMERS OF THE WORLD, UNITE!" YOU CAN HELP IN THIS PROCESS BY MOVING PAGES TO THE NEW SITE AT <a href="http://thecostumersmanifesto.com">THECOSTUMERSMANIFESTO.COM</a>, HELPING TO EDIT THE PAGES THAT ARE THERE ALREADY, AND ADDING YOUR OWN ORIGINAL INPUT.

Alaska Native Traditional Dress Resources

I did not expect when moving to Fairbanks that I should find much to interest me from a <a href="http://www.costumesocietyamerica.com/"> costume</a> point of view (Fairbanks is justly famous even within Alaska for casual functionalism in dress). I was pleasantly and repeatedly disappointed in that expectation. The astonishing variety of traditional dress found in museums using fish skins, walrus guts, porcupine quills, moose hair embroidery, beads, grasses, and every imaginable hide has made Alaska a complete orgy of new costume history sensations.

<a href="../../SHOWS/100pages/TUMA.HTM">TUMA THEATRE</a>/THEATRE UAF Department of Theatre University of Alaska Fairbanks Fairbanks, AK 99775-1510 (907) 474-7751 Performances: Performs full-length company-written dramas in Native dance/pantomime style, in a combination of Native languages and English. Costumes (Editor's note: I'm the chief designer.) are modern adaptations of traditional dress.

Patterns:

The Cooperative Extension service of the University of Alaska Fairbanks puts out several patterns in pamphlet form in cooperation with the USDA. These patterns are modern renditions of traditional Alaskan clothing designs which are now used by many Native and nonnative inhabitants of the colder parts of Alaska. These pamphlets are sold at cost in the interest of teaching newcomers how to dress without breaking the bank or dying of hypothermia in a Fairbanks winter:

  • The Cloth Parka, #72 - $.75
  • Fur Parka, #71 - $1.00
  • Tanning at Home #A-00320 - $1.00
  • Family Winter Clothing for Interior Alaska (informational pamphlet) - Free

<p>These pamphlets are chiefly of interest as examples of modern Alaskan Winter attire. It should be emphasized that these items are worn equally by Native and nonnative inhabitants in Fairbanks as they provide a good cheap alternative to the expensive (and more common) commercial down jackets. Local Alaskan sewing stores also sell

full-size patterns for modern Alaskan parkas.

Needlework:

<a href="../aknative/other/akbeadwork.jpg"> <img src="../aknative/other/akbeadworkt.jpg" border="0" width="180" height="131"></a>
