A Masquerade is usually the highlight of an anime con. It typically takes place on Saturday night. Cosplayers can enter in the Masquerade and have to oppurtunity to perform a skit and exhibit their costumes in front of an audience. At the end of a Masquerade, the judges usually hand out awards to cosplayers whom they feel exhibit quality craftsmanship and/or perform a skit with an outstanding presentation.

And make sure you buy the Masquerade tickets and not assume that the other one you bought will get you in. ^_^;;

There are several individuals and groups ( I think I'm part of a group) who have signed up to perform in the Masquerade (Need to fill in an application). Relax, no audience member is randomly picked up to perform onstage.

Tickets for said event cost nothing except the time you spend waiting in line for your ticket.

Last year they had a scheduled time in which they started handing out tickets. Think it was 9am last year. If you want a ticket be there early. Don't line up at 9am thining you'll get a ticket. Some people told me that they were there at 6am. I got there around 8 and the line was pretty long.

You don't have to buy the tickets. It'll say in the program book when and where they'll hand out tickets. I think it was one per person last year. I remember people at AX telling me that they lined up the night before for tickets. I don't think it's that bad at fanime.

Michi: I only spent 45 minutes sleeping friday night/saturday morning..blame it on my roommates and I had no choice but to wake up, get some breakfast and then go stand in line for the tickets, which I did. I think I'll go home, sleep and be down there by 5 a.m LOL :P

I would bring blankets and pillows and sleep in line if I was there that early.
