    Other Social Activities at Costume-Con 26

    Posted: January 28, 2008

    One of the most important (and fun) parts of Costume-Con is its social aspect. It's a truly unique opportunity to meet and get to know the very talented folk who share your interest in costume.

    The Friday Night Social is our organized opportunity for you to "meet and greet" other convention members, but the conference offers plenty of room for more casual, personal gatherings as well.

    On-the-Spot Competitions

    Just because we like you, we're offering up the chance to win awards you weren't even looking for. Some require little (and indeed may allow only minimal) advance preparation or at-conference commitment.

    Hall Costume Competition

    Our secret judges wander the halls in search of fabulous yet practical costumes. If you're walking the halls wearing something that astounds our judges, you may just get a ribbon.

    Oh, and don't tell anybody, but our bid committee is giving out CC26 Bid Pre- Conference Hall Costume Awards, perhaps at a convention near you.


    If you've been to Costume-Con before, you've seen some of the silly competitions people have come up with. If you haven't, you can always go to another Costume-Con to find out what it's like.

    Watch this spot for more news on some sort of culturally significant bit of silliness with a costuming twist.

    The Mouse-kerade

    Invented by Fiona Leonard at CC16, the Mouse-kerade is being brought back to life by highly capable Minions Radar and Johanna at the Monday Night Reanimated Canine Party! This is really Costume-Con in miniature. Monday night, after the conference is over, gather in the ConSuite with your favorite plush toy, wearing a costume of your own creation (the toy, not you, well, you should wear something too, but it's the toy that's competing... you get the drift, don't you?). Watch the MC stretch between entries! See tech failures! Wait for the judges to return from their deliberations (in the bathroom)! Collect your carefully hand-calligraphed (in ballpoint) winner's certificate!
