Costume Contest

OryCon36 is holding a costume contest in a format closer to what you may have seen at other conventions.  We have some incredible costumers and cosplay enthusiasts in our membership, and to encourage that sector of our community, we will be staging a more traditional competition.  We will have a panel of three judges, including our cosplay GOH, Jesse Lagers!

There will be three categories for the competition:
* Cosplay, for those that want to compete against others that focus on developing a character with careful attention to detail, accuracy and technique.
* Costuming, for individuals or small groups that have created a cool idea or project, with less emphasis on the details of creation and more on the presentation and effect.
* Kids, for our contestants under 18 that wish to show off their awesome outfits.  Teenagers 16 and above can compete in the first two categories if they wish, but the kids category is to encourage younger competitors to show us what they got, even if they don't have the resources to develop something at the higher levels.

The competition will be Saturday afternoon starting at 6pm in the Multnomah/Holladay ballroom. Kid's judging starts first, followed by costuming and then cosplay. Photos are being taken in Ross Island during the same period.

Contestants will need to be prepared to gather before the contests for picture taking and organization. Please get a registration form from the office prior to the contest and bring it with you to the Ross Island room between 5pm and 5:30pm saturday if you wish to compete.  Children participating in the OryKids Costume Parade should come directly to the Ross Island room after they are finished. 

Cosplay category contestants will be meeting with the judges before the contest to provide them an opportunity for a close up analysis of their outfit. If you wish to compete in this category, please bring your completed form to the main ballroom promptly at 4:30pm Saturday.
