Retro Con’s Totally Tubular T-Shirt Contest Returns!

 

Show us your retro best! Retro Con’s Totally Tubular T-shirt Contest will RETURN for 2019!

A longstanding tradition at geek gatherings are attendees wearing t-shirts of their favorite entertainment brands. Retro Con has turned this trend into a contest to win free prizes!   

 

 

Hosted by our good friend Michael Breaux of The Breaux Show, Retro Con’s Totally Tubular T-shirt Contest will be held on Saturday at the show! 

 

**Contest Rules**

 

1: No water will be involved. ;P

2. The contest is open to anyone at Retro Con wearing a t-shirt with a retro-oriented logo or print on it (mid-90’s properties or older). Examples include: movies, cartoons, comics, tv shows, toy lines, company logos, mascots, music bands, and more!

3. There are no sign-ups needed. Interested contestant can line up outside of the panel area prior to the contest start time. (Start time to be determined soon!)

4. T-Shirts can be vintage, new, or custom-made. But bonus points will be given to t-shirts that are vintage or custom!

5. Only actual t-shirts can be entered.  Sorry, sweatshirts, jackets, snuggies, jerseys, hoodies, long-sleeve shirts, etc., will NOT be allowed.

6. The Retro Con t-shirt contest is a family-friendly event! Tees with overly sexual imagery or crude language will not be allowed. We must also insist that your t-shirt be reasonably sized to your body type.  

7. We’ll allow a small group to enter as one contestant if they have t-shirts associated with each other.

8. The contest will be slated for about 30 minutes. Hosts will ask questions to the contestants on-hand, after which they will pick approximately 10 entrants to be finalists.

9. After our Finalists are picked, they will be asked to go to the front of the Panel area. An additional round of questions, along with some audience participation, will determine our 3 winners!


Examples of questions:

– How old is your shirt?

– Why did you pick this particular t-shirt to wear?

– Is there a special meaning behind the design/character/show/etc. to you?

-Is there an interesting story about how you got this shirt?


Winners will get the following…

First Place Prize:  G1 Transformers Soundwave Reissue!

Second Place Prize:  Spirit Halloween Ghostbusters Ghost Trap!

Third Place Prize:  $35 80sTees.com gift card! (Donated by The Breaux Show!)
