Galaxy Masquerade

Where?

Cerise

When?

14:30h

So you think can cosplay? Think you have what we’re looking for? Do you make your own costumes and do you always get compliments from other people about how well-made they are or how they’re (almost) the same as the original? Do you excel at making Iron Man-suits or recreating costumes you’ve seen on Doctor Who, down to the very thread they use? Do people tell you you really look like that character from Game of Thrones, Star Wars or Supernatural? Do you like to pretend to be someone else and are your roleplaying skills so good that people at times even think you ARE that character? When your answer is a resounding ‘YES!’ to any or even all of these questions Imagicon is looking for you! For the coming edition of our convention we’re looking for cosplayers who can either act almost exactly like the character they’re aiming to be or have superb skills when it comes to using needle and thread or foam and wood, or plastic and leather, etc. For people who prefer not to participate in a contest, but still want to show off their cosplay: Join the Masquerade Parade! On this page you can also look at photos that were taken at both the contest and the Parade in 2014. BEWARE! As said Imagicon is a convention that focuses mainly on Science Fiction, Comics, Fantasy and Horror. The focus of our competition will be on cosplays that have their roots in one of these four genres. Although there certainly is room for anime-based cosplays, our preference will always lie with costumes that come from these genres. Rules and conditions 2016 The cosplay contest consists of a fashion show (walk-on) and acts (skits). Both solo acts and groups are welcome. Each entry counts as one ‘participant’.  Please read the rules carefully to see in which category your entry belongs.
