Masquerade 101
For costumers, future costumers, and for those who simply enjoy watching costuming events, this overview of convention competitions will discuss their history, inner workings, differences among conventions, the judging process, and what it takes to compete well. Also tips on research, fabrication methods, use of music, reference materials, and stage presentation ideas for taking original and re-created designs from concept to stage-ready. Panelists include past Comic-Con award-winning costumers Allan Lavigne, Malis Vittorfolk, and Jennifer King, along with Ian Branson (San Diego Comic-Con/WonderCon Masquerade tech director) and moderator Martin Jaquish (San Diego Comic-Con/WonderCon Masquerade coordinator since 1992).

YouTube's Origin Presents The 2018 Comic-Con International Masquerade
The Ballroom 20 stage becomes a showplace for a fun competition of comics and pop culture creativity, with impressive re-created and original design costumes crafted by our talented attendees, presented before an audience of thousands. Not a dance or party, but a talent show on a stage, with trophies, cash prizes and other awards for the top entries. Doors open for audience seating at 8:00, but the line for choice seating will begin hours earlier. Tickets are required for seating and will be given out free at noon to those lined up. Any tickets that remain will be given out at the Masquerade Desk after 3:00. The Master and Mistress of Ceremonies are writers/artists Phil Foglio and Kaja Foglio, with special live entertainment from The Corps Dance Crew and the Saber Guild performance group during the judging intermission. Overflow seating available in the Sails Pavilion, 5AB, and 6A (tickets not required for those rooms).
