As long as it's not the same costume, I don't see the problem.

There is no form yet, but it will be completely separate from the Masq. These are two different events.

Because there are two openings-one on friday and another on saturday-are we allowed to be judged on two different costumes?One for each day?I've experienced this setup in past hallway competitions.
Either way I'm thrilled that Acen has finnaly dicided to begin a hall cosplay-thanks for taking the initiative at last.;)

Because ACen is an anime and manga convention.

I will be using the masquerade rules as my basis here:
4) Costume Themes
All costumes must be directly based on Japanese Anime (such as Yu-Gi-Oh), Japanese Manga (such as Card Captor Sakura), J-Rock, J-Pop, Japanese Live Action (such as Godzilla and the Sentai contingent), or a Japanese origin anime-style video game (such as Final Fantasy). The rule of thumb: if the series and/or character originated any place other than Japan, it does not qualify. If you are unsure, ask.
With the successful test in 2005, Korean based anime/manga source characters will be accepted, though it will be in limited numbers.

We ask that you only enter once. It would be unfair since the awards are not split into days.

Just a question about prop size. Although this is a hallway contest, it is not actually being staged in a hallway. Why, therefore, do we need a prop size limit?
For instance, if a prop is collapsible into segments smaller than 4 feet but when assembled is larger than 4 feet, will it be allowed in the hallway contest?

Also to clarify, will entering the same costume in the Masquerade and in the hallway contest be prohibited?

Thanks for setting this up! It sounds great, and I can't wait for the con.

Since the hours are so broad, you will most likely sign up when you get there and fill out your paperwork :3

Yes, you may do that.

No you may not enter the same costume. Choose one or the other.

How big does the picture have to be? I con only find small pics and when you make it bigger the quality gets worse. In the mean time I'll keep looking for bigger pics.

We just need to see your details. I'm sure if you put out a request in the cosplay board, someone could help you find a nice picture.

We ask that you go to the office and pick it up before the con ends. If not, we'll have to find another way. I'll get more information on this!

This may be a super dumb question, so feel free to beat me. But if we've come up with a different version of a character--say, for instance, a *ahem* sexier version--can we enter that? It won't look just like the character's original outfit, but will have enough elements from it to be recognizable...

Now would i be able to enter the hall cosplay as Master Chief from the Halo series?
I see that there is going to be a Halo pannel and enough people here at ACEN play the game
also, so i was just wondering if it fit the guidelines.
If not, then I will enter my kyuubi (3 tails) naruto.

As long as it is appropriate and doesn't deviate from the original design tooo much.

Just for clarification - when providing documentation, you only want reference pictures correct? You do not want to have any starting sketches, in progress photographs or pictures of support garments? (support garments in my case is a wing harness, which is under clothing and not visible from the outside).

Thank you in advance!
