Sign up's to exhibit at Otakon 2019
The Otakon Cosplay Coordination department helps facilitate and promote cosplay photoshoots at 4 new locations at the WEWCC.
The Masquerade is designed for costumers who wish to perform a short skit on stage, or whose costume would be best presented in an on-stage format. For costumers who wish to have their costume judged but do not want to perform a skit (i.e. a walk-on entry), we recommend entering the Hall Costume Contest.
Open: Dec. 21, 2018, noon - July 15, 2019, 11:59 p.m.
Would you like to Volunteer at Otakon? Register to be a Gofer! Deadline Extended!
The Hall Costume Contest is a contest that deals specifically with the quality and workmanship of the costume itself. There is no performance element - it is a quiet scheduled judging session where you speak to the judges and tell them about the details of your work.
To receive press credentials to cover Otakon, please apply online.
Closes: June 24, 2019, 11:59 p.m.
