Masquerade Registration


Masquerade registration for Otakon 2023

The link to the registration form is at the bottom of this page. Please read and be familiar with the requirements before you submit your application

Registration opens on July 12th, 2023 at 8:00 pm Eastern Standard Time, or when all slots have been filled.  Please note that the Otakon 2022 Masquerade slots were filled two days after opening.

Registration forms will be accepted only during the registration period above. Forms submitted before or after the registration period will not be accepted.

How to Register for the Otakon 2023 Masquerade

All entries wishing to participate in the Masquerade must register via the Otakon website. There will be no at-convention registration of new entries. 

There will be a maximum of 25 skits able to perform during the Masquerade. These slots are filled using the following methods:

  • The first 25 entries registered for the Masquerade are designated as "Reserved Entries". These entries gain first access to check-in at the convention on Friday to choose their perfomaning slot.
  • The next 15 entries registered are designated as "Overflow".  These entries gain later access to check-in at the convention and are able to choose from the remaining slots.

If you have not done so already, please take a moment to review the Full Masquerade Rules and Regulations.

Please read the following carefully before proceeding:

We will only accept complete skits. Please complete the registration form to the best of your ability, as if you will perform today. Forms found with incomplete information, including missing skit information and incomplete or missing cast member names will not be accepted. We understand that you will probably want to fine tune your skit in the coming weeks, but due to the limited number of slots available, we must do what we can to prevent unnecessary place holding.

Please do not ask or negotiate what you can and can't do regarding your skit in your registration form. Your registration information is used as a reference in the event itself and questions within your form will only clutter that information and hamper our efforts at the convention. In the event you do have any questions, please contact the Masquerade Coordinator through the Otakon Help Desk.

Submit one form per entry, please. Multiple submissions only make it more difficult for Masquerade staff to sort through the dozens of registration forms, and in very rare instances may require us to reject that entire group of multiple submissions. If you wish to revise your skit, please follow the instructions in your confirmation e-mail that you will receive after you register and your skit is approved.

Please provide a WORKING e-mail address. We will send your confirmation information and further information regarding the Masquerade. If we cannot reach you, we cannot send you your confirmation information, and your registration form will be rejected and your slot will be given to another entry.

What happens after I register?

After you submit your registration form, a confirmation screen will appear. At a later time a follow up e-mail will be sent to the noted address with further information. This email is a confirmation that you have registered to access a time-slot to check-in and choose a slot for the Masquerade. It is not a confirmation that you will participate.

Masquerade staff will review your form and contact your designated contact via e-mail regarding its status within 3-5 days of its receipt. If accepted, your designated contact will receive detailed information regarding check-in procedures and skit updates. If there is an issue with your submission, the Masquerade coordinator will contact you via e-mail.  Please remember that you must check in at the convention and participate in all necessary pre-show components to perform in the Masquerade.
