Yay!! Thanks for the post.

I just ran to register my group. I hope it's approved. ^_^ Exciting.

EDIT: I forgot to ask. What kind of skits do people do at costume con..? I went looking for videos but couldn't find many. Is it mostly walk ons..? any talking if there are skits or is that discourage? I was assuming it was more a chance to show off the costumes rather then perform.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Kags --

Presentations range from the simple walk on to more elaborate productions with props and choreography. The time limit at Costume-Con is shorter than for many anime cosplay contests, so that has a big effect on how people write their presentations. Remember, too, that there is no contestant microphone and the room is large. If you have dialog as part of your presentation, it should be pre-recorded with your music so it is played over the PA system.

Due to music licensing problems, you won't find many Costume-Con masquerade videos online. However, if you search for video clips from the 2006 World Science Fiction convention aka LA Con IV, you can see a number of presentations from the WorldCon masquerade. WorldCon and Costume-Con have similar rules and traditions for presentation, so perhaps those can be of use to you!
