HALL COSTUME CONTEST:
Have a costume? Want a chance to have your costume’s craftsmanship judged in a contest without having to brave the beast that is the A-Kon Cosplay Event audience?
Cursed with shyness or terrible stage fright? Then the Hall Costume Contest is for you!
How to enter:
- Simply show up at the Hall Costume Contest Panel held on Friday in DeSoto A.
- There will be a panel of costumer judges who will take your entry form and on-site contact information, and then spend a little one-on-one time with you checking your seams and flipping your hems.
- After that, you’re done! Enjoy the Kon!
Winners of the Hall Costume Contest will be announced at the end of the judging session.
Friday Hall Costume Contest: 12 pm to 2 pm
Costumes entered in the Hall Costume Contest *can* enter the stage Cosplay Contest. However, the winners of the First and Second place prizes in the Hall Contest will not be allowed to win the Best in Show, Second Place, Third Place or Best Craftsmanship awards in the stage Cosplay Contest. (It is possible to win secondary awards.)
All costumes entered in the Hall Costume Contest must be made by the entrant(s) in order to qualify for the Craftsmanship award. Purchased costumes (either commissioned, store bought or eBay costumes) are ineligible for the Hall Costume Contest.
Hall Costume Contest Awards:
- First Place
- Second Place
- Best Craftsmanship
We will be making all best efforts to contact the winners of the Hall Cosplay contest before the Saturday Night Cosplay Event, so that they may come up onstage in their costume to accept their awards during the half-time show.
Should a winner not want to walk across the stage at all, they may pick up their award in DeSoto A on Sunday morning.
