The Masquerade is our annual Saturday night performance and cosplay competition. This is the time when fans come together to put their talents on display and strut their stuff in craftsmanship and performance.
To participate in the Masquerade you do not have to compete in craftsmanship, but if you would like to be considered for the Best In Show Award then your costumes will need to be made by someone in your group and participate in craftsmanship. When signing up please be sure to select the correct category.
- Presentation Only
- Walk On
- or Both
Note: if you select Walk On or Both you will be given craftsmanship judging. Failure to report to craftsmanship may affect your overall judging. Please see our complete rules for more information.

What are the rules for the Masquerade?
Glad you asked! You can read them here.
What if I don't want to be in the Masquerade, but I want my craftsmanship judged?
You do not have to present a skit to compete in the Masquerade, but you will have to walk the stage. If you don’t wish to get on stage but would still like your craftsmanship judged we do offer a separate craftsmanship event, the Hall Cosplay Contest.
