The Hall Cosplay Contest is about craftsmanship – a participant’s ability to accurately recreate a character. Participants do not have to act “in character”. Judges will only be interested in knowing how well the costume is made. They will be looking for items like clean seams and straight hems, wig styling, accessory and prop creation, and the various crafting skills used. Judges may ask questions about how costume parts were made, but the participant should be ready to explain the how, what, and why of their costume’s construction.
This is a separate cosplay event from performing a skit in the Masquerade.
There will be judging on both Friday and Saturday of the convention. All Saturday participants are required to participate in a “Fashion Show” walk-on at the Masquerade on Saturday evening to show off their handiwork. The “Fashion Show” is optional for Friday participants. Friday participants should mark on the entry form if they will be participating in the “Fashion Show”.
Registration for the Hall Cosplay Contest is not yet open. Stay tuned!
