I will be attending next year unless comps happen that weekend. However, I will have to attend on Sunday. I work on Saturdays- it is the busiest day at the library. And it is difficult to schedule a Saturday off. I'd rather save that for AWA.

I may wear BT again. But I also have another character's costume in the works that will allow me to wear leggings. That's all I'm gunna say about it. I only have two new costumes planned for next year- have so many that I want to wear again.

Tia
10-29-2004, 12:53 PM
Yep, Tia is going. No idea what I'll be wearing, though. Probably my catgirl for a bit. I might wear that when Steve does the Venture Bros. cosplay. Oh yeah, if anybody else is interested in doing cosplay from The Venture Bros., let me know. So far there are two people doing it at Megacon. I'll know more about my costumes for Megacon after Otakucon. I have two planned for then.

I had a great time last year, though I hardly dressed up. I definitely would like to go to the upcoming Megacon, with some days left over to do the Disney/Universal parks again ^o^

Megacon is the best garage sale ever. Plus its more eclectic, with fantasy/scifi/ and anime. I've already set up my League of Extraordinary Gentlemen group, and part of my friends Vampire Chronical group.

Megacon also has the best location, who doesn't love being able to hop onto I-drive and enjoy the night (since the con pretty much shuts down at 6pm)?

Yaya, If you ever go to Disney, let me know. I can get you discount tickets.

I guess you've all heard by now, but Psycho le Cemu is coming. Even though I am not into J-Rock and have never heard any of the songs, it is still an exciting event that I would like to catch.

Why didn't I see this thread before? How weird.

Anyways, I'll be going as Zelda (Ocarina of Time), Temari (Naruto), and Tayuya (Naruto). Horray! I had a blast at last Megacon and I'm really excited about going there again. ^^

I'm definatley headed to Megacon, despite the terrible experience I had with the Embassy Suites last year (an R-rated tale that I shall tell only in person which involved Marshalls, or was it Sheriffs...).

Resident Evil! I'm coming as Carlos (a homebrewed mix of Movie and RE:3).

Also a contingent of the Peach State Cosplay Society (P.S.C.S) should be coming as well.

I'm only curious, if anyone is doing non-Japanese based cosplay to Megacon? It -is- a fantasy/scifi con at its root, and a nice time to do the fantasy type characters without people getting so snide.

I'm thinking of cosplaying Ford Prefect from Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. All I need is a towel, a satchel, and the Guide.

...for those that are doing costumes that aren't Asian(anime, videogame, etc)themed; I am hosting Megacon's SuperHero costume contest on Friday afternoon. More details to come later, but we're giving away pretty slick prizes this year. /end shameless plug

...as for myself, I'm trying to finish up a Batman Beyond costume in time for the convention on Friday, Jedah(DarkStalkers 3) for Saturday, and Irvine Kinneas(FF8) again on Sunday.

Tia
11-30-2004, 02:32 PM
Stephen is doing Bender from Futurama. I'm still pretty undecided, myself. Really just trying to get everything I've planned for december done. You got any plans for cosplay there, Lu?

Lucifer
11-30-2004, 06:20 PM
Makiotwist: Yep, can't wait to see that contest. Represent the American stuff yo! I might convince a few League members to go into it. If anything because we LXG members rock XD Can't wait to see your Axel costume! He's hawt...-drools-

Tia: I'm going nuts at this con. I'm a member of the LXG (League of Extraordinary Gentlemen), a very special special project for Saturday that has about as much sex as Dracula himself, and Sunday is Armand from Vampire Chronicals (aka, Nicole/Marius' servant).

I'm deathly excited for Megacon.

Tia
11-30-2004, 07:14 PM
Ooh, pretty. Deathly excited is pretty accurate lol. Oh, Jen does Mina Harker, have you seen her? She totally has the attitude down. It's kind of sad in that I don't really have ideas for Megacon. I'm totally stumped for once. It's probably just as well, though, since I probably won't have all my december costumes done and ready to work on a new one by then. Maybe I'll just work on my wings and wear them around the con as advertisement. Yes, Tia is a PR whore.

Tranquility
12-01-2004, 12:26 AM
Yay for Bender! I'll have to take a picture of him. lol I'm just going to cosplaying game/ anime characters for the con. I don't really resemble any superheroes and I don't think I could pull it off. :(

I would've picked the Genki one, but there's just no way I could make something like that... though I like that one more than the Frontiers' costume. Aaaaaanyway, to answer your question, they've been pretty tight-lipped about it; but it's safe to assume it'll most likely happen before midday Sunday, so it would be wise to arrive early. Personally, this is actually the first con I've been hyped to attend on a Sunday for. :thumbsup:

Sunday: Star Wars hosted by Star Wars ST group

Concert is on Sunday, so all the anime people will be just fine when it comes to scheduling.

Just as a slight plug and update on the SuperHero I'm hosting on Megacon Friday, the contest will indeed be gong-free(LOL)and prizes given for the following divisions: youth(1-18), adult(18-and up), crowd favorite, and overall judges favorite. Nothing too deviating from the normal; but the prizes however will be quite slick. :)

Youth Divison: $50, comic book gift bag, dvd
Adult Division: $100, comic book gift bag, dvd
Crowd Favorite: Free 3-day admission to Megacon 2006, comic book gift bag, sponsor prize
Overall Judges Favorite: Free 3-day admission to Megacon 2006, comic book gift bag, sponsor prize

...the Megacon 2005 Super Hero costume contest homepage should be finished and live by early January 2005. It will include rules/regulations, an updated prize list, anime/internet sponsors, and tips & tricks of the trade to enhance your chances of winning. :cool: If anyone has any suggestions/comments, don't hesistate to ask via PM.
/end shameless plug


Now that the plug is out of the way, I wanted to ask where everyone is planning on staying for the con? Despite the closeness to the Orange County Convention Center, I don't recommend staying at the Red Roof Inn after my "not-so-great" stay I had this year; though there are some other nice hotels in the area, all under a mile away from the OCCC... Hampton Inn($129/night), Spring Hill Suites($149), Quality Inn($80), Comfort Suites($87), West Gate Lakes($120), Days Inn($61), Sleep Inn($66).

I'm going for one-day so hotel isn't an issue for me. ^^ I'm going as Kenshin (which shouldn't be a big surprise) and just attending Saturday, so if anyone sees a Kenshin in pink it's probably me...or it could be like, a repeat of Megacon 03 and there will be THREE TV Series Kenshins...*~*;

makio
12-22-2004, 03:04 PM
:) Ah, good to hear. Your Kenshin costume is quite well crafted; which actually reminds me of something I forgot to post of earlier...

...would anyone like to attempt having a Cosplay.com group photosession? We can set a time/location within the Convention Center where we can meet up and get photos to post on site here. If so, post the 'yay or nay' to the idea. Hell, we could even go with the whole purple ribbon wearing notifier of being a Cosplay.com member too...

Tia
12-22-2004, 03:42 PM
Hope to see you guys there, Hime and Makio. I would so be there for a cosplay.com meetup. Do you think there's enough people interested, though? And it might be difficult to find a good meeting place. I advise in the second floor somewhere off to the side or in the walking-in area that is nice for picture taking. Otherwise, it may be hard to find people. Please, please if you're going to host this use a sign because I haven't been able to find anybody at the last two meetups I was supposed to have with ACP.

12-22-2004, 03:46 PM
The idea gets a yay. But I do not know if I will be able to attend. I am trying my best to get the Saturday off, but everything depends on comps. My classes look like they will have a quite heavy courseload. Plus I have 2 jobs- I don't even know how I'm gunna make time for subbing.

We are going to stay a Staybridge Suites. I'm hoping that it's close enough that we can walk to the convention because we probably won't have any way to get there. Last year we stayed at the official hotel and it was pretty nice. It had a shuttle bus to the con too.

Our group would probably go to the photoshoot if we knew the time and if it was easy enough to find. Was there ever one last year? I heard about one but I never found it..

Tia
12-22-2004, 06:43 PM
Oooh, I will look for you in the costume contest. I might be busy at some times during the day, though, because I know there are usually some Utena girls at Megacon and I'll be doing Juri one of the days at least. I originally planned her for then, but I had to do her earlier because Mandy Bonhomme was at OtakuCon.

That superhero contest sounds really cool. I am looking forward to it. Is it later on Friday so I can try to get there to see/participate? I guess I'll wait until you post more info to see what exactly you mean by "superhero" does it have to be non anime?

Yeah i definatley want to stay at the hotel within walking distance I stayed at Quality Inn and loved it much more than waiting for parking and getting to parking and getting to your car etc.etc.

I'm all for a photo thingie. I assume you'll want it on Saturday, since you'd be pretty busy Friday and with PLC on Sunday...yeah.

Thank god I won't be in the costume line, so I can make it (unlike last year -_-). Woot for non-qualitfying costumes :D!!!

And I'll definitely be at the Friday contest, maybe shove my League in for laughs.

Cosplay.com Members Photosession @ Megacon 2005
It looks as if everyone's good with having it on Saturday, which is perfectly fine with me. We could meet on the main floor entrance lobby off to the side(so we don't interfere with traffic)and then move to one of the more open areas of the con after about 15 minutes. I'll probably be there as Jedah(DarkStalkers3), so I shouldn't be too hard to spot. I'll also bring purple ribbon and tape(or pins, whichever's best)in case anyone wants to flaunt the site further, LoL.

I'll find you Saturday, maybe help you out with gathering people and what not. I figure you'd need a wee bit of help if you're going to be dressed as Jedah after all.

Hampton Inn($129/night), Spring Hill Suites($149), Quality Inn($80), Comfort Suites($87), West Gate Lakes($120), Days Inn($61), Sleep Inn($66).

...those prices came from Expedia.com; all of them also under a mile("walking distance", IMO)to the Orange County Convention Center. Keep in mind that most of the hotels in the area aren't too far away, or you can take a trolley-bus there. The only two hotels directly next to the convention center are upwards of $200+ a night(the Peabody and the Rosen). Ouch! :lost: Personally speaking, I'm looking into either the Staybridge Suites or Hampton Inn; both of which nearby gas stations, food areas, I-Drive, and of course - Namco's Arcade at Pointe Orlando.

who: Cosplay.com Members
what: Costumed PhotoSession @ Megacon 2005
when: Saturday, February 26th @ approximately 10am est(I doubt we'll be taking photos longer than 45-60mins)
where: We'll meet on the main floor entrance lobby off to the side(so we don't interfere with traffic)and then move to one of the more open areas of the con after about 15 minutes.
why: Well, what better way to show off your costume? Or meet new people from this message board? There is no 'theme' for this photoshoot, so come as whomever. :cool:

erk... if so, please comment! Personally speaking, I don't think I'm entering AnimeSushi's contest(not-so-great memories and hunger pangs from M2003... ask Chino. LOL). So I'll be free all Saturday... which basically means if everyone would rather meet later in the day, that's fine.

...just keep in mind the obvious noon lunch hour, Anime Sushi's costume/cosplay contest, and various guest signings & panels!

Either way, unless you're the first twelve people in line, don't worry too much about when the prejudging actually starts. For those sorry to be last in line, you can easily wander the con and just return to the line later (which is what most of us did last year, being #150 -_-).

I've been to cons back home in PA that had 8 cosplayers tops in the contest...XD I'm not used to this, and this is my first time on-stage (other than at JACO but that doesn't count really). Overwhelming, indeed...hopefully I get a really high or really low number so I can estimate a good time to be in line.

I'm only curious, if anyone is doing non-Japanese based cosplay to Megacon? It -is- a fantasy/scifi con at its root, and a nice time to do the fantasy type characters without people getting so snide.

I'm going to do a Star Wars costume. :3 It's been 95% done for almost a year and a half but they didn't have the contest last year and it wasn't done so it's been collecting dust since. :(

Umm..... well you said you were doing Dorian Grey..... I was mainly suppressing a lot of bad puns relating that with Dir en Grey. *is bad*

I've seen a good Battousai win an award at a FL con this year, thus why I am confident enough to enter...besides, it's about having fun even if I have to wait in long lines and deal with that sorta thing. XD An accurate costume is always better than a fancy, innaccurate one I always say. I wouldn't let nerves prevent anyone from entering, you never know. ^_^ Though I do have to wonder why there are so many entries.

Ah, ok now I get it. Granted there isn't really much in common aside from their names being simular.

Actually, its kinda suckage to enter a contest of a billion people unless you're doing something really eye catching. Don't get me wrong, but if you want any sort of attention, being #198232917 Naruto characters won't do much in contests where there are so many others. I hope that made sense.

Then again, I think the real fun is all in hall cosplay. Contests are rough, and hurt alot when you loose (if you truly tried your best). Hell I'll openly state that it hurt alot last year when our Shaman King group was overlooked for best group.

Never enter trying to win. Just have fun. That's all that it should be about.

It's not that I'd want to win anything, it's just that I don't want to get embarrassed or something. I'm always afraid that I'll humiliate myself on stage. I know it's a stupid fear and I've been performing so long that I shouldn't even have it, but it's still kind of there. I don't want to disgrace the character.

You were in that Shaman King group? I have to say, out of all the cosplay I saw there last year, that was what I remembered. It was a really good group.

It's always going to be something. First it was sailor moon, then Utena, then Final Fantasy, and now Naruto. I think the reason it's staying on Naruto is two-fold.
1. It's still going (my God, it's got to be like four seasons by now 0.o)
2. There's nothing else newer and as popular as it yet.

So I guess it'll keep perpetuating itself until the next new thing rolls along. It could perhaps be Galaxy Angels. It's just gotten noticed this year. It could start to get big next season, but so far the groups are fairly small and unfortunately broken up throughout the U.S. I think Wolf's Rain is going to start getting a lot more popular, too. At least I hope so.

Lost in the Field and I made Oscar's sword yesterday. It looks so beautiful! I even wrapped the rose around it- the leaves and flower form a certain shape that is representative of the kind of figure Oscar is.

Guess what minna- the AMV contest is also on Saturday. Anyone know at what time? It did not say on the Anime Sushi page.

Everything sounds awesome! I just hope that the costume contest pre-judging is organized...like, some cons will give you a time to come back for your individual judging while others don't and I fear standing in a line and not having fun. ^^; Sort of takes the fun out of a con to just stand there all day and not enjoy being with friends, the dealer's room, anime viewings, etc.

Hate to break it to you but Megacon every year has done the 'wait in line' thing. Only AFO and Jacon have given you a number and you come back with it. Well FX con is doing that too, but since that's ran by Jaco that makes sense.

Either get in the front of the line, or the very back. If you're in the back you can still wander a bit before being called.

Ah, okay, I was just wondering because I haven't seen many fursuit cosplays around, and I figured people who did one would be likely to do another.

Oh! I will so be at that EGL Tea Party. Actually, I would like to talk to everyone briefly before or after it starts, is that okay? Because the thing is, there was kind of one at Metrocon last year, but there were a lot of problems happening on saturday. And now the convention center won't allow an actual tea party, because of food reasons. So, I'm wondering if anybody would be interested in attending a separate tea party maybe sometime in the spring. I just don't have the connections to the EGL community, and I'm not sure where to host it. I will see you at MegaCon.

I might be switching to Hitokiri Battousai instead of normal Kenshin...either way I'll be there as Kenshin of some incarnation or another. ^^; It depends on how this wig turns out once I receive it on Friday and style it. High ponytails isn't something I've really played around with a whole lot, just did a test on my regular Kenshin wig once and it turned out good enough.

I'm looking very forward to going to Megacon, it'll be my first convention, and first time cosplaying. I'll be going as Shinya from Dir en Grey, from 'The Final,' video to be more exact. I figured I'd start out doing a rather simple outfit, even though it won't be so easy to do as I thought, especially since I'm a perfectionist. Anyway, I really just want to go to see Psycho le Cemu, that's what is -making- me go, so I figured it's a great excuse to finally get me to go to a convention. I will be going for each day, as far as I know.

And, Lucifer...you're going to cosplay Dorian Grey -and- Armand? Good luck with fending off the rabid fangirls!

I'm not too sure who you're going as for Saturday, but I know -plenty- of Dorian and Armand fangirls. But, you'll probably be fine since you're in a group. I doubt I'll get too much attention for my cosplay though, I'll probably be mistaken for Milly Vanilli anyway, haha.

I, too, am frightened by the fangirls. Normally I have no problem with them, but just one word: Juri. The amount of Utena fangirls on the planet is highly disturbing (and I'm sure you'll find that out soon enough, Lu). I'm just hoping the really crazy fangirls don't recognize the outfit. The fan situation is only getting worse for me this year. Forte is going to be even worse 0.o; We should band together in groups to protect each other!

Yeah, I wish my Ruka would get his butt in gear. I still haven't found a Shiori, either. Nobody ever wants to be her. Heh, fanboys can be just as bad sometimes, though.

Ah, I wasn't sure if you had a Nanami, yet, so I was talking to this one Nanami cosplayer on here who goes to AX every year and told her about the group. I hope that's okay. She wants to do Rose Bride, so I'm thinking you probably didn't have that version yet. I'm not sure if her costume is going to be done by then, though. I'll let you know when she replies to me.

I'm 5'5", with a weight proportionate to my height and build. Plus I'll be wearing boots with 2-inch heels. I'll be wearing a military uniform and carrying a sword (albeit a prop made of foamboard). I'm a morning person, so you can imagine how perky I will be. And my personality is very much like that of the character I'll be dressed as. Most guys are intimidated by me, even though I am nice to everyone. But just like for my character, there were always those skinny dogs dreaming about expensive steak that would hit on me regardless of how a TERRIBLE match I would be for them. Hence it is always a good idea to watch out for those crazy fanboys.

The best way to calm down your fears is to always stay by your friends. Last year I stayed always with a group- not always the same people, but close since I was part of a small group cosplay- and always felt very safe.

It is hard to get lost at Megacon. It is mainly the dealer's room downstairs, and then the few anime rooms upstairs that also serve as the contest rooms.

I wouldn't worry about fangirls/boys. I've had only 3 instances of 'odd situations' in the four years I've been cosplaying.

I doubt most will have any problems at megacon, no matter their costume. Yeah, people may squeal if they see you, or ask for a hug. That's normal. Being stalked, hit on, or whatnot...not likely. If that even -does- happy, best to just walk away. Seriously.

I doubt I'll have any issues with fangirls, most probably won't even know whom I'm dressed as.

Do you know if there are any age requirements to go without a guardian? I'm just worried because my dad is dropping me off with a couple of friends and then picking me up when it's over. I shouldn't worry, I doubt they'll notice because of me being 5'7 but I am.

Anyhow, I'm going to Megacon, I'm not going to be cosplaying, this is going to be my first convention, I'm excited, I'm probably going to be there all day Sunday so I can see Phycho le Ce'mu.

I honestly do not know if there are requirements. Haven't really seen anything in the main page. However, if you are with two friends it should be fine as long as you stay in the main convention area.

I have heard of other cons that do not allow people under a certain age to be without an adult (sometimes they specify the adult has to be a parent/guardian), as well as no people under a certain older age cannot be alone after certain hours of the night. Since Megacon isn't quite 24 hour, I do not know if it has a policy. Do check the website.

Children (ages 0 to 13 <- Wow! ) get judged in their own category.

Where do you sign up???
*Confused*
Cosplay is just with the costume, not doing skits, right?
The animé costume contest is the one where you do get judged on your costume. You can do a skit but are limited to less than a minute of doing so <-- it's not necessary & doesn't increase your chances of winning, & you will lose points if you do do a skit lasting over the allotted minute, just to let you know.
The cosplay competition event done by AnimeSushi (http://www.animesushi.com) is done differently by them. Here, it's more like a seamstresses’ competition, I think. However, I think it's at the other animé cons in which their cosplay contests are the more 'skit-friendly' costumed contest versions.

Tia
01-16-2005, 06:30 PM
That does strike me as odd, as well, that thirteen is still considered juvenile. I was making my own costumes by then, but I'm usually early with things. I understand that some other conventions (also sci-fi cons) have the same age requirements. I know that Necronomicon does, and it struck a few cosplayers I know, as well as myself, oddly when we were there. Perhaps the stipulation should also include that the costume should be made by a parent? Because that is typically how that category is supposed to run. I don't know, though, it's really difficult to plan for everything.

Hime no Toki
01-16-2005, 06:55 PM
I'm not sure what they base the age categories on...my guess is that yes, it's mostly because the parents made the costumes, and to give the younger cosplayers a better chance and a more relaxed competition. Also explains why they take the stage first. I mean, I'd be pretty frightened if I was into this when I was younger and had to compete against TONS of other cosplayers. Though I do agree, age isn't something you can use to determine talent, I'm sure people even younger than 13 can make their own costume and have the skill to do so.

And yes most people under a certain age can't sew and theire mothers do it for them only knowing that they want to cosplay. I was the same way when i was 11 or 12 i think . But i made my gardian teach me how to use the sewing machine and wala! i was making my own costumes!

Or is it just that c.com isn't involved w/ megacon and is just holding a photoshoot there?
Oh no, no, no! It's not like that! Heh. The Cosplay.com photoshoot/get-together idea was something started impromptu by some members of Cosplay.com. It's not a scheduled or an ‘official’ event (at MegaCon (http://www.megaconvention.com)). That's why MegaCon doesn't even know about it. There are a large number of other groups/communities/etc. that are going to get together at MegaCon for their own photoshoots, and most of these are unknown to MegaCon. For example, I am pretty sure WasabiAnime of FL or even OrangeAnime would have a photoshoot/party for animé fans and/or members of their own webboard forums that MegaCon doesn't have to know about. The convention itself is just one excuse for people to get together and meet up with each other. There needn't be a con like that at all for ppl, like the ones here on c.com, to actually meet up in person. But since quite a number of cosplayers from just this forum alone have stated they'll be at MegaCon previously, that's when one or more persons just decided to see if they could arrange a time & place for other c.com members to meet up for a photoshoot &/or meet new faces IRL. Heck, the photoshoot itself is also kind of just an excuse to meet others from this webboard face-to-face. :sunny:

Edit: Uhm, I just saw that Hime no Toki provided a much simpler explanation for the photoshoot. See her post too. :skidude2:

Everyone's changing plans, I went from Kenshin to Rei. Since I'm entering the contest, I figure I might as well enter my best work to date.

*~Hime no Toki~*


Rei, huh? I'll try and protect you from the stampede of drooling fanboys after you. It was a very well done cosplay though. ^_^;

Yikes...XD I'm all afraid, lol. Fangirls are not very frightening...fanboys are. >> << Good to know I have protection! XD

Fanboys...are...definatly something. Um...I would rather deal with fangirls though.

I'm sure fanboys -are- scary, I think I'll have more fangirls than fanboys though. But, yes...I shall protect you! XD

Me, Evali and Imriella will be at Megacon on Saturday. Sorry we haven't said anything sooner, but we've been busy working on the costumes/skit.

Can't wait to see all of you there!

I am going to MegaCon as part of a Ranma 1/2 group for MegaCon now :)

Anyone interested in some fun Ranma cosplay?

Actually, I'm interested in some fun Ranma cosplay. I just finished the manga (English version and the translated Japanese version; I know, I'm late joining the fandom ><) after learning that the same author did Inuyasha, one of my favorite anime/manga.

I started making a female!Ranma costume this week, but I could probably switch if there's a certain character you need. ^^

Lol, I just found out that my friend Earl wants to come with me, so right now we're brainstorming ideas. Anything's cool with him because I'm the one who makes the costume anyway, lol.

Still, it looks like we're leaning towards Ribbon Girl and Shakespeare Male for the moment (Kuno siblings...or something, I can't remember) because we love villians as much as we love corny and irritating laughter. Still, we also are considering Ryouga/Ukyo, Shampoo/Mousse, or Male and Female Ranma. Hell, we've even got Dr. Tofu and Kasumi ideas bouncing back and forth. Earl and I live (being Drama Club President and Treasurer, respectively) to find a relatively ignored (or conventional pairing that is always portrayed the same way) pairing and run with it. xD Out of curiousity, which characters do you have already?

We have :
Ranma-chan male and female
Kuno
Soun
Ryouga
Ukyou
Nabiki
Kasumi
Maybe a mousse
Maybe an akane

I am doing Kodachi but I was thinking about going creative with it and making the ball gown she has in volume 32 with the side pony tail and lots of black roses ;) And lots of ribbon so I don't know if I'll even be recognize but it'll be fun :)

Wooo I can't wait to see what you decide on all those pairings sounds really awesome. Dr. Tofu and kasumi sounds adorable couple too and I've never seen them cosplayed:)

I can't wait to see the Ranma group, Jade! ^^ You guys going to put on a skit? ^.^

For anyone who wants to say hi I am the "incredibly short blue-haired Ayanami Rei in a plugsuit". XD I'm sure I'll be the only person who fits that description though you never know at MegaCon...biiiiiig conage. I need to finish getting ready for FX (that is, add more flowers to the back of my Kenshin haori), anyone else going to that?

As an 'update' to the ongoings of the MEGACON 2005 SUPERHERO/VILLAIN COSTUME CONTEST (SVCC), here's some quick details:

* This masquerade will indeed be gong-free and prizes given for the following divisions: youth(1-18), adult(18-and up), crowd favorite, and overall judges favorite. Nothing deviating too much from the normal; but the prizes however will be quite slick!
Youth Divison: $50, comic book gift bag, dvd
Adult Division: $100, comic book gift bag, dvd
Crowd Favorite: Free 3-day admission to Megacon 2006, comic book gift bag, sponsor prize
Overall Judges Favorite: Free 3-day admission to Megacon 2006, comic book gift bag, sponsor prize

* EXAMPLES OF APPLICABLE COSTUMES: X-men, the Avengers, Fantastic Four, Daredevil, Justice League, Power Rangers, Hellboy, Spawn, Captain Hero, Freakazoid, the Incredibles, Space Ghost, Super villains, Cape/Super Mario(from Super Mario World), the Hurricane(from WWE), the Mask, League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Viewtiful Joe, etc.

* EXAMPLES OF NON-APPLICABLE COSTUMES: Inu-Yasha, Star Trek fleet officers, a Wookie, Starship Troopers, Sephiroth, X-Files agents, Naruto, Gundams, One Piece, etc.

* The homepage is nearly complete and ready to take pre-registration for the contest. It will include rules/regulations, an updated prize list, anime/internet sponsors(who contributed with some of our prizes), and tips & tricks of the trade to enhance your chances of winning. It should be live online this incoming week now that the "bugs" have been worked out of our online pre-registration form.

* Costume Judge selections have already begun; names to be announced shortly. If you would like to be considered to be added to the judging panel, please email back your interest and previous history/"resume" in costuming or superhero/villain intelligence quotient. For example, if you're known for getting many costume awards or an avid reader of comics and knowledgeable of their staff(writers/artists), this could be the volunteer job for you!

* The contest will take place on Megacon Friday, February 25th, 2005 at 1:30-4PM EST. The SVCC room number has not yet been announced but upon doing so; signs, convention announcements, homepage, and directions to the room number WILL be posted.


Keep in mind that if you do plan to register, you'll need the following --- the costume(obviously!), the registration form(if you pre-register, we'll have that), and a reference picture of the costume. We are -strictly- enforcing both the reference picture for judging this year due to the wide variety of characters available to be costumed as. So if you neglect to give us a reference picture, we'll unfortunately have to deduct your judging score.

Judging Score? Yes, it will be a points based system in which the entrants all start with 0 out of a possible 100 points. Each judge will deduct or add 10 points to your score depending upon how well you adhere to the regulations of the contest... i.e., costume resemblance to the character, construction detail/durability(i.e., did you remember to put that "A" on Captain America's forehead? Is your Sinestro costume sewn properly without loose strands or open seam rips?), etc. As a bonus, we will add 10+ to your score if you present the costume in-character. As usual, they will be judging more on costume accuracy to character more than presentation... but presentation can turn the tide on a decision! So give your best "Up, up and Away" heroic or villainous character quote to woo the judge's vote!

If you have any questions about the contest, unsure about what's applicable for entry, or even general comments in reference to the mini-event, please feel free to PM/email me back... though things have been hectic with getting the homepage up and running(which I'm proud to say was worth the effort), I'll try to answer back as "super-humanly" as possible!
