Costume Contests

We will be hosting  *TWO* costume contests at Retro Con 2016!

 

SATURDAY: Junior & Adult Costumers 14 and over!

 

SUNDAY: 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 (times to be determined). Individuals and small groups are eligible to participate. Preregistering for the contest is not necessary, just be around the panel area prior to the announced time if you would like to be included. There is no sign-up fee.

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!
