4:00 pm Masquerade Costume Contest (Cosplay/Costume)
Host:  OMNI FANDOM EXPO TYPE: Contest
1 hr

The Masquerade Costume Contest is a must see event at OMNI FANDOM EXPO! Costumers from all over will take the stage and show off not only their incredibly crafted costumes but performances as well. On the runway, contestants will face off against each other for the "Best in Show" prize of one thousand dollars! If you have the desire, drive, and creativity to be the best, sign up and show everyone what you can do! 

Come see what the contestants have in store for you at the OMNI FANDOM EXPO Masquerade Costume Contest!

What's Required to Enter:
All contestants / creators / models MUST have a current OMNI FANDOM EXPO Badge (VIP Pass, Weekend Pass, Saturday Day Pass, etc.), and a costume that has been at least 80% hand-made.

Note: If you are a Sponsored Cosplay Guest, you cannot enter the Masquerade Costume Contest in order to keep things fair for everyone.

How to Enter:
Sign up (location TBD) at OMNI FANDOM EXPO. If you are under 18, you will need a parent or legal guardian with you (they must be with you through all stages of the contest). If you are a model, the costume's creator must be present at sign-up to participate in pre-judging for craftsmanship awards. You will be given your pre-judging time when you sign-up.

What's Needed at Sign-Up:

  • Download the entry form and fill it out or fill out an entry form at the convention sign-up location. It will require your name, the name and description of your costume, the name of the costume's creator (if you're modeling it for someone else), what skill level you qualify for, and any awards you have won.
  • Do not bring any reference materials when you sign up. Please hold onto them until your designated pre-judging time.
  • We suggest not wearing your contest costume at sign-up in order to keep your outfit as much of a surprise as possible for the convention's audience.
  • If you are doing a cosplay skit/performance and have any audio that you want played, you must bring the audio in MP3 format ONLY on a USB Flash Drive and present it at signup. If accepted, it will then be copied for OMNI FANDOM EXPO's use in the competition. Note: entrant takes all legal responsibility resulting in any damage or legal fees associated with any media presented/copied for use at OMNI FANDOM EXPO.

Filename Criteria (Only for Performances/Skits): 

  • File must be MP3 format.
  • File must be on a USB Flash Drive. (OMNI FANDOM EXPO will only copy your file and will not keep your Flash Drive).
  • File must be easily accessible in the root directory of the Flash Drive. Please do not bury your file in multiple directories.
  • Filename must be the name of the contestant (first and last) followed by a dash (-) and then the name of the skit.
  • Filename must contain underscores (_) instead of spaces ( ). Again, do not put spaces between words, use the underscore.
  • No special characters allowed (*&%!"', etc...).

Entering As Walk-On Only:

Yes, you may enter the contest as a walk-on! Walk-on Only (meaning no pre-judging) costumes will ONLY be considered for all non-craftsmanship awards. 
IMPORTANT: If you enter as a Walk-On only and do not participate in pre-judging, you will not qualify for Best in Show or any craftsmanship award!


CONTEST GENERAL RULES AND GUIDELINES:

  • ENTRIES: One entry per person. Cap of 100 entries taken. Limited Late Registration will be available if space permits. We reserve the right to refuse additional entries.
  • PERFORMANCES/SKITS: Due to time contraints, a limit 20 of the 100 entries may be Performances/Skits. First come, first serve.
  • All Masquerade content must stay within the OMNI FANDOM EXPO General Guidelines, Code of Conduct, Prop / Weapon Policy, City of Kissimmee ordinances, and the Day's Hotel by Wyndham Celebration's guidelines, and not exceed a PG-13 rating. In addition to these basic guidelines, swearing and depiction of sexual acts is forbidden. Bleeps or other forms of censoring are acceptable.
  • All  skits / performances may not exceed 1 minute 30 seconds. The MC (Master of Ceremonies) or Contest Host narration/introduction will not count towards the performance time.
  • “Cosplay” aspect to show that you can not only look the part of the character, but also act the character as well. The judges should believe that you are your character - "suspended reality". This aspect is to demonstrate that you know your character inside and out.
  • Any presentations with stunts, extreme, or shocking performances must be approved by the Cosplay Coordinator before the event. Failure to do so may result in disqualification.
  • Any eligible costume that wishes to compete for craftsmanship awards must participate in a preliminary costume judging. Any costume not taking part in preliminary judging will not qualify for Best in Show or any craftsmanship awards. No make-up times will be allowed.
  • Technical contest for Best in Show and craftsmanship awards. All costumes being considered for those awards must be at least 80% hand-made.
  • Youth is 12 and under. Parents MUST accompany contestants.
  • Handlers are allowed; however, oversized costumes REQUIRE a minimum of one (1) handler to go on stage with them. Oversized costumes MUST provide their own handler ( minimum of one (1) ) in accordance with OMNI FANDOM EXPO General Guidelines.
  • Models are allowed, but the costume/prop fabricator must be present for the costume to qualify for awards.
  • Again, Sponsored Cosplay Guests are disqualified from entering the Masquerade Costume Contest for the fairness of all contestants.
  • Finally: Please remember that the purpose of this show is for fun and entertainment. It's to celebrate everyone's creative inspiration, ability, and passion for this beautiful art form. Please do not get so caught up in the idea of winning an award that you forget that there's an audience watching you, or the other contestants waiting for their moment on stage, or the staff who is producing the contest itself. This is for everyone's enjoyment. Also, many of the OMNI FANDOM EXPO Staff have been in masquerade contests themselves, so we know how it feels! Thank you for being part of this awesome fan event, and enjoy!

PREVIOUSLY CREATED COSTUMES (IMPORTANT):

  • Costumes that have previously won any award above a judge's award or honorable mention are not allowed to enter.
  • Cosplayers that have received a Best in Show award at a previous event will automatically be placed in Masters Division.
