Retro Con’s Retro T-shirt Contest!

RC tshirt test 4l


You’re going to wear a geeky shirt to the show anyway… might as well win something for it! Retro Con’s Retro T-shirt contest will be BACK for 2021!

A longstanding tradition at fan gatherings is attendees wearing t-shirts expressing their favorite characters and brands. Retro Con has turned this trend into a unique contest to win free stuff! Hosted once again by The Breaux Show, the Retro Con T-shirt contest will be held in the panel area midday on Saturday, and we want to see your Saturday best! Your t-shirt can be vintage, new, or custom made. As long as it’s retro-related, you’re welcome to enter!

Prizes this year include…

1st Place: A brand new Transformers Kingdom Rodimus Prime figure! An $85 value!

2nd Place: A brand new Turbo Man reissue figure from Funko! “Put that cookie down! NOW!”

3rd Place: A new LEGO Batmobile set! In their infinite wisdom, Lego decided this set didn’t need a Robin figure. So we’re adding one in ourselves!

We’ll have some “Honorable Mention” prizes as well.

**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!
