Masquerade / Competition events SO FAR (to the best of my knowledge):
1) Science Fiction and Fantasy Masquerade (includes Anime & vidoe games)
2) Historical masquerade (both recreation & interpretation, may include "classic" Anime designs depending on the rules)
3) Fashion Folio (design competition, currently accepting submissions)
4) Fashion Show (competition for costumes made from the Folio designs)
5) Single Pattern Contest (each entry is designed off the same base pattern)
6) Doll masquerade (for both costumes on dolls and completely crafted dolls)
7) Video Masquerade (pending, details TBD)
8) Skit-oriented competition? (tentatively pending)
9) Hall workmanship? (under initial discussion, so far a maybe)
Note: More info as forthcoming, I should be able to get it early as I am the CC26 Competitions Coordinator.
