Greetings, lovers of the dark mystery of a full moon night! In the proud tradition of Demicons past we will once again be having a Friday night Hall Costume contest. As always, just don your finery and strut the halls, you may be our next lucky “Best in Hall” winner! We will be following the same rules and procedures as last year, so you don’t need to stand before a judge to be considered an entrant. And again, as in last year, our wandering judges will be scouting the halls to hand out special hall awards!
Here’s the scoop: To be considered a Hall Costume entrant and eligible for the major awards, you must have your photo take by our photographer, Brian. (His hours of operation will be posted in a notice next to Registration, so look for it!) There you will receive your Ribbon of Participation. Only those with Ribbons of Participation are eligible for the special hall awards, which include ribbons for those who best remain in character, or what anime we like best, or super workmanship (among others). The major awards, presented during Masquerade on Saturday, include rosettes for the following: ARTIST'S CHOICE, AUTHOR'S CHOICE, FGOH'S CHOICE, and of course BEST in HALL
In addition to rosettes, something special (taken from the darkside of the Moon itself) will be awarded to the lucky Best In Hall winner. Photos of this special item will be posted here upon completion, but you can check the Demicon archives to see what the lucky winners received last year!
FLY ME TO THE MOON!
We had so much fun two years ago with the special Pirate Hat costuming event, we decided to do something similar once again! In keeping with our lunar theme, the special contest this year will be dedicated to all things related to our moon, “Luna…” and how your idea can be best presented on a hat (or some other form of headgear)! There are subjects a-plenty out there, folks; the sky… no, “the heavens” are the limit! To get you started, here are some mind-jigglers: consider lunar phases; there are myriad songs about the moon or with the term “moon” in them; different cultures assigned different names to each month’s full moon (Google it!)… We could go on and on! The judge will be found at “Mare Serenitatis,” waiting to see your creations. Directions to this location and the time period in which the judge will be present will be included in the notice hanging at Registration.
