It's your neighborhood friendly Hallway Contest Master, Jessie! ACen is certain sneaking up on us this year.

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:

AWARDS LIST
-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)

RULES
-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:

Thursday
5PM-7PM

Friday
12PM-2:30PM
BREAK
5:00PM-7:30PM

Saturday
10AM-2PM

Sunday
Feedback panel

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!

I really wanted to do this last year but everything went crazy. ^^; Hopefully I'll be entering it this year~

but I have a question, I have a metal keyblade which I usually leave in the hotel room unless I leave for photoshoots (not inside ACen), can I carry it around for the Hallway Contest?

Unfortunately to compete in the Hallway contest, props have to be IRT compliant. The Masquerade is the only contest that allows the rule to be bent.

I entered in the masquerade and the hope to get to the Hallway contest. I won’t be entering in the same outfit. I guess I'm more nervous than anything. Is there anything that I should have on hand to be prepared for the masquerade or the Hall contest via paperwork or progress pics or reference pics to a certain pose?

Question:

I have two costumes I made: one I'll be wearing and another my friend will be wearing. Can I enter both of them together in the hallway contest?

So do we have to responsible for making most of the costume? What if it was bought by someone we don't know online? Or something we bought and altered(however much)? Could we still enter the contest?

if you look at the first bulletin under 'rules' it does say the person who made the cosplay needs to be present....so...i'm thinking no, you cant enter with a purchased cosplay offline from someone you dont know...:(

I will be making print outs available of the entry form, but you don't need to fill it out a head of time! Progress pictures are quite loved by the judges and they will look in your favor if you bring them!

Are they from the same series?

If it is completely made by someone else, no. If it was heavily altered, and I mean like at LEAST 70-80% altered, you can enter the thiftiness award.

Yes, they're from the same series but I'm wondering if it would be a better idea/easier to enter them separately, or can I only enter them together?

It would be odd to enter them separately and we usually don't get that many groups. I'd prefer you enter them s a group but in the end, it is up to you.

Many of the rooms in the Hyatt are named after prominent airports - DFW is "Dallas/Fort Worth".

How is the feedback panel on Sunday organized? Do you need to be wearing the costume that was judged when you attend the panel or is it simply a matter of the judges having taken notes on your cosplay the previous days? Thanks :)

Feedback panel is about the events itself, the judges do not usually attend (Though Jon and I usually have a pretty idea why you were chosen as we monitor our judges). Even so, you would not need to wear the same costume. We usually have good memory... I am organizing having the judges come to the forums after so anyone with questions can ask them.

Question: Are the times listed in the first post actually happening? The main site's masquerade page lists hall hours as completely different, with no Thursday hours, and I can't find hours officially listed anywhere else on the site. I was debating trying to get in earlier than usual on Thursday to take advantage of that if it's actually happening, but if the hours on the masquerade page are the correct hours, I'll be doing a little more reorganizing. ;)

These are the correct hours. They are the hours I listed, and since I'm the person who actually runs it, you can trust me. It's also the hours listed in the guide and on the app.

Also remember that the Masquerade office and the Hallway office are two different offices.

Awesome, thanks! And yeah, I know Hall and Masq are different departments, but there is no page for the Hallway contest on the main site, and the page for the Masquerade does list "Hall cosplay hours" right below "Masquerade office hours". Someone might want to fix that at some point, though it's a little late this year...
