For costumers, future costumers, and those who simply enjoy watching on-stage costuming, this brief overview of fan convention costume competitions will discuss their workings, their history, how contests differ from one type of convention to another, how judging is done, and creating original designs and re-creations, plus costume research, planning, fabrication, and stage presentation tips for taking a costume creation from beginning idea to stage-ready showpiece-and most important, how to have fun doing it! Presented by Comic-Con Masquerade director for the past 23 years Martin Jaquish, Masquerade assistant John Ruff, award-winning fan costumer Allan Lavigne, and award-winning member of the HCC cosplay group, Judy Grivich.
