Why You Should Join Us

It’s much more than a job – it’s a creative career.

We know a dyed-in-the-wool costumer when we see one. You crave the excitement of putting on a show. The thrill of seeing your work on screen or an actor transformed by the costume you built. You’re not just nimble with a thimble, you love the challenge of fitting a last minute casting choice. Dyeing lingerie with a magic marker. Knocking out an accurate period hat in a time crunch. If any of these crazy, creative impulses belong to you – then membership in the Motion Picture Costumers IATSE Local 705 is right up your alley. It’s much more than a job – it’s a creative career.
