Pre-Judging Begins at 3pm
We want YOU to show us your stuff! Super Heroes, Game Of Thrones, Dr. Who, Supernatural, Robin Hood, Disney.
Have a great Spider-Man ensemble? Come show off!
However, we do have rules.
At least 60% of the costume needs to be made, built, or created by you.
This includes: Sewing, Building weaponry/armour, painting, crafting. You can take pre-made clothing items and alter them, (Example: Altering a bodysuit to suit your character, purchasing pre-made boots but making a gown from scratch. Purchasing a pre-made wig but making an entire armour out of craft foam/foam mats/worbla and fabric).
You will be judged on Talent. Are you alive and “On” for the audience?
How much do you ‘resemble’ the character (This has nothing to do with facial structure, and everything to do with if we can figure out who you are trying to be? Example: Showing up in a t-shirt and jeans and saying “I’m Spider-Man” doesn’t qualify)
12-Under: Walk on stage and show off your costume or cute outfit! (We’re a lot more lenient for kid’s costumes but we do prefer if you’re actually in a costume!)
13-Adult: Show us what you have, Pre-Judging will be earlier in the day and signup sheets will end AT NOON, prior to Pre-Judging. You are required to show up for Pre-Judging at 3pm, or else you will not be called to stage during the presentation portion.
Judging is based on
Attire/Portrayal of Character:
75% Presentation: 25% Judging is graded on a scale of 1-5
