Costume Contest

The Annual Madicon Costume Contest is almost here!

This year our Cosplay GoH RheaSylvia will be our guest judge and we are so excited for another year of beautiful and creative costumes at Madicon! This year we are taking the Costume Contest in a bit of a new direction regarding categories.

Category One will be for costumes that are primarily handmade (estimated 60%+ handmade).

Category Two will be primarily bought-and-assembled (60%+ assembled, you did not make the pieces)

This is our effort to celebrate costuming and cosplay of all flavors and creativity levels, and we hope you enjoy!

We are also allowing walk-ons for those who would like to show off their costume, but not be judged in the contest.

If you are interested in participating in the Costume Contest pleas sign up by 2:30 PM Saturday, and assemble in the Vendor Room promptly at 3:00 PM. When signing up please include your name, your character name, and the series they are from. Having a reference image may be helpful.

A bit about our Weapons Policy:

If you have a prop weapon as a part of your costume, please check it in with Reg Desk prior to the Costume Contest. This is so we can keep track of weapon-like props without the hassle of peace-banding.

If your prop weapon is deemed inappropriate for Madicon, we are willing to keep it safely at Registration till the Costume Contest, as which time you may have it in the Contest. This applies primarily to highly-realistic props, especially projectile-capable firearms. As a reminder we do not allow real weapons, no exceptions.
