Retro Con Costume Contests!

2022 Costume Contest 1j


What’s better than one costume contest? TWO costume contests, obviously!

Join us Saturday at 1:15pm at Retro Con for the “Ages 14 and Up” costume contest, and then again on Sunday at 12:15pm for the “Ages 13 and Under” costume contest! Both hosted by our good friend Eric “The Smoke” Moran, a one man costume army!

Both contests will be held in the panel area at the show, with individuals and small groups welcome to participate. Preregistering for the contests is not necessary and there are no sign-up fees, though we do suggest entrants please arrive outside the panel area for line-up in the minutes prior to the scheduled start time.

Top prize on Saturday is $150 in cash, with Skelly awards for our 3 winners. Top prize on Sunday is $100 in cash, and a box of toys for all participants to choose from after the contest is over.

We love having costume contests and we love seeing all the imaginative ideas you bring to the show every year. What we DON’T love is to waste your time with long drawn-out contests. We always do our best to keep our contests moving at a brisk pace, so you can get back to enjoying the rest of the event and make the most of your time at Retro Con!
