Submit your entry now for The Masquerade

21 MARCH 2014

Now that spring is officially here, it's time for cosplayers to rev their engines and sign up to compete in The Masquerade. If you have a character you're dying to portray - from film, TV, comic books or your own imagination - this is your night. 

For the first-timers, The Masquerade is a cosplay talent competition. The costumes are quite impressive and all homegrown; no professionally-sourced costumes are allowed, although The Masquerade does often serve as a stepping stone for people interested in professional careers in costume design and makeup.

While it's never been my thing, it is a major event at Comic-Con and attended by thousands of people. Awards are given out for Best in Show, Judges' Choice, Best Re-Creation, Best Original Design, Best Workmanship, Best Presentation, Most Beautiful and Best Young Fan; every category winner gets a free four-day badge to Comic-Con 2015. And those are just the category awards. A number of vendors hand out cash, collectibles and other prizes as well.

The deadline is 3 July, but early submissions are strongly recommended. You can find out more and apply here.
