Closing out the event is The Creativity Collective’s third annual Corset Crawl, a pub crawl in corsets!
The corset's popularity began in sixteenth-century Europe. It has since become a costume and undergarment staple, especially with the city's performance troupes and marching krewes. The Creativity Collective will give prizes for most classic representation and best comedic interpretation.
