Lots of things are changing this year. Just trying to better cater for you guys' needs! Remember that there is no pre-reg for the Hallway, you just show up and fill out a form!
What is the same:
-Best Individual Novice (Friday and Saturday)
-Best Individual Journeyman (Friday and Saturday)
-Best Group (One for both)
-Best Prop (One for both)
-Three judges awards (One for both)
-Rising Star (One for both)
-Best Child (One for both days and only if a minimum of three compete)
-Best American Based Cosplay (One for both)
-The Thriftiness Award (Closet Cosplay)(One for both)
-The person who made your costume must be present to answer questions by the judges.
-You MAY NOT compete with the same costume in the Hallway and the Masquerade. I go to both events, if I see you wearing the same costume, you will be disqualified.
-You may compete both days, but the costumes must be different and you can only compete once per day.
-If a part of your costume (prop, wig) was made by someone else, you must tell the judges.
-You need to bring at least one progress photo that is visible to the judges via print out, cell phone, ipod, computer, etc (we will be lax on this rule)
What is different:
Okay, the biggest problem I have every year is figuring out the hours. This year they are going to be VERY different. So this is what I am thinking for this year, opening on Thursday for a couple hours for the people who work and are in the artist alley. Closing earlier on Saturday to allow more time to get ready for the Masquerade.
This is what I have in mind:
Let me know what you guys think. I'll put up the registration forms in the next couple of days if you want to fill them out early.
We'll have lots of really great prizes this year as well!
