I'm sorry, but I'm going to have to tell you no. Judging cuts VERY close to curtain for the masq contestants and if we make an exception for you, we'd have to for everyone.

-Costume must be made by the person participating or the person who made it is present to speak with the judges.

I think I read the answer somewhere before, but just to make sure, what percentage has to be made? For my cosplay, I already had the clothing, I just needed to make the accessories (ribbon, hairclips, style the wig). Would that be ok for the hallway contest, or no?

Thanks <3

I wanted to enter my Sailor Pluto into the contest but I'm not sure if it complies with the rules.

The skirt and collar came from a school uniform that I altered. The leotard/skirt base was attached together by my seamstress
I made the bows.
Bought the staff and tiara
Styled the wig myself
and bought the boots black but made them sailor-fied on my own...
can i participate?

Also - my staff is about 6 feet tall but it can be split into 4-foot or less segments. Can I have it together if I participate?

You have to tell all of this to the judges when you see them. You can enter them, but you also have to remember that there will be people competing who did make everything in their costume. As long as you do not lie to my judges about the percentage you made, it's fine.

Ok....I am going to ask several question.
First-If we judge, do we get a discount on our badge?
Second-When you mentioned Video game based, what is the total detail on that.
I tried to enter last year as Master Chief and was told I couldnt compete because it was
American game set, not Japanese.
Third-If an outfit was made by two people and one of them is wearing it, what needs to be done.
I would guess that both partys are needing to be present for judgeing. The problem Im running into is that
the other party is going to be running an artest ally booth. Since the judgeing is during the time the alley
runs.....im a bit at a loss.

This year it is in DFW B, which is in the same area, but not the same room. I believe we have a bigger room this year. It's in between the elevators and where we were last year.

1. I'm sorry, no.

2. To quote one of my rules: NO original designs. Must be anime, manga, video game related, Japanese related or in limited quantities, Korean related. I'm sorry you were not allowed to compete in your Master Chief last year.

3. Yes. We are very flexible in judging, which is why there are no set times you need to come back. If your friend can find someone to watch her booth for a few minutes and told us that he/she needed to be back asap, we would allow you to skip line to be judged.

Thanks so much or your quick responses. I think my final question is...WHERE DO I SIGN UP? Lol.

I may not think I have a chance at winning bu it looks like a good place for a novice to start. After all, gotta work my way up through the ranks somehow!

It's a wonderful place to start. Don't hesitate to ask the judges any questions about improving your costumes either.

You will fill out a form when you get to the room at the hours allotted.

-NO original designs. Must be anime, manga, video game related, Japanese related or in limited quantities, Korean related.-

My costume is of a humanoid Flareon so even though the whole outfit will be an original design, the character is not so is that still allowed 'cause this rule isn't too specific...

Idk, I think what you mean to say is no original characters right?

So can I enter my Pokemon Gijinka Flareon costume? 'cause it is anime related ^w^

Then you must get out of the fire.
Will you get back into the pan or fight your way out of the fire to the stove top?

Aww man! I just looked at the time this was being held at! Shoot! This interferes with the Lolita Fashion Show. >.< I'll have to go to that instead. *sighs*

But there is the Saturday too! Hurrah! I might be able to make that!

I have what might be a stupid question. I'm interested in entering hallway cosplay next year (hurh, talk about super planning ahead), but I found it very unclear when it was talked about durring the Masq whether you could enter if you also enter craftsmanship in the masq? Because I would like to enter a costume that involves a lot more work in the Masq and another in Hallway if possible.

@ Thiefette: I'm not a person who runs this, but I participated in both the hallway competition and the masquerade this year. They will allow it, but you can't use the same costume for both.
Past cosplay costumes:
Priestess from Ragnarok Online at Anime Central 2006 ::High Priestess from Ragnarok Online at Anime Central 2007 ::
Atoli and Aura from .hack//series at Anime Central 2008
Alicia from Valkyrie Profile, Atoli and Aura from .hack at Anime Central 2009
Did not attend 2010 nor 2011 :(

You may enter the Hallway as many times as you like as long as they are all different and is not a costume you are competing with the Masquerade.
