What is a masquerade?

Hello. I am relatively new to cosplay. I havent been to any conventions and was hoping to go to my first one this year. Anyways, I was really wondering what a masquerade was. If anyone can tell me it would be much appreciated. Thanks.

A masquerade is, in it's simplest form, a costume competetion. There are many aspects to it, though, depending on the convention. Some have workmanship judging, in which you can have the quality of your costume judged, and some don't. Many people enter short skits, in which you act out something/perform something while in costume, to show it off. Others just walk on and pose to some music. Some conventions only allow walk-ons, either due to the number of entries, or just that's the way it is. The judging style changes from convention to convention as well. Some use International Costumer's Guild guidelines (ICG), while others don't.
