Costume Contests

Costume Contest 1i

We will be hosting  *TWO* costume contests at Retro Con 2021!

SATURDAY at 1:30pm-     Junior & Adult Costumers 14 and over!

SUNDAY at 12:35pm-     Kid Costumers 13 and under!

 

Hosted once again by our good friend Eric “The Smoke” Moran, both contests will be held in the panel area at the show. Individuals and small groups are eligible to participate.

Preregistering for the contest is not necessary and there are no sign-up fees, though we suggest entrants please arrive outside the panel area 15 minutes before contest time for line-up.

**In the interest in keeping everyone safe, we will be limiting entrants for each contest, particularly the Kids costume contest on Sunday. We will space everyone out outside of the panel area, then send the entrants in one at a time.**

We do a combination of staff judging and crowd reaction to determine our three winners. While craftsmanship will be definitely be taken into account, we will mostly judge costumes on their theme and overall effect. While some costumers are well-versed in advanced sewing and molding techniques, others show their ingenuity through creative glueing, hand sewing, and working with found items. We recognize costuming/cosplay as a hobby for people of all skill sets and budgets!

Please no skits or anything else that might delay the contest. Doing a pose and/or saying something briefly in character is okay. Also please no heckling from the audience or from contestants. Anyone found disorderly will be asked to leave. We believe in a fun and ego-free atmosphere!
