Yep! It starts tonight @ 11:59pm (Pacific Standard Time).

http://www.fanime.com/events/masquerade.html

It will also be posted at the top of this thread this evening when it opens.

It's basically an online registration system. You can add/update/change your information right up until May 16 with our system :)

It's not down -- check the first post in this thread. My SSL certificate just expired... like an hour ago >.<

This link should let you get to the site:
http://www.anime-online.com/cosplay/

However, when it tries to submit it, it's going to go to an SSL page. If you are using Firefox, you need to add an exception. For IE, just click on "Continue to this website (not recommended). "

Sorry x 100 >.< on the phone with my ISP right now

How long is "a couple of hours"?
I'm up early every weekday morning so right now I'm at my limit of being able to stay awake. No temp holds through PM until the registration site is accessible later in the morning?

I repeat: the web site IS up -- you should be able to register. It's not down. We've had 25 registrations so far...?

http://www.anime-online.com/cosplay/

Click there. It definitely works.

Okay, I started it on this PC and the link refused to work. But when I opened my mac, the link worked. It could be dependent on the browser.

*edit* sorry just finished reading your one post  :o

*second edit* is there a problem with getting the verification email too?

OK all -- I have the new certificate, but I'd have to reboot the server in order to get it working. I'm NOT going to do that right now, because I know people are registering and I don't want it to go completely down...

It will be fixed soon.

http://www.anime-online.com/cosplay/    <-- just use this link instead, all should be well.

To be eligible for the "best of show" award, does the group need to participate in craftsmanship judging?

Yes. Best in Show = best of both Craftmanship AND Performance.

I have a question about the music section on the registration page.
So the title of the section says Music Requests - is this where we state that we're bringing our own music? It's my first time entering the masquerade so I apologize if it seems like a newbish question (I just want to make sure I get everything right XD).

Please just bring your music with you on CD to the registration desk at the convention. The Music Requests section is basically for things like ... "Start the music after we are on the stage, fade the music as we walk off the stage". Or "Start the music before we come on stage, stop the music exactly at 2 minutes." Just explain what you want. Sometimes people have elaborite things like "pause the music here until we do xyz", etc. ^^;

04/02/09 Final Update for the night!

1. OK, all the links on the site have been changed to reflect the fixed URL:
http://www.anime-online.com/cosplay/

2. SSL is now FIXED!!!

3. At this point, I'm moving operations to the http:// URL for 2009, just so that it's consistant :/
http://www.anime-online.com/cosplay/

4. Again, I apologize about the scare. You all know I'm a database dork, so this was my worst nightmare Q_Q  sorries.

5. Approvals will be done tomorrow. I need to read through all the proposals and make sure they are OK. That takes a few hours. Expect changes on this page by tomorrow evening (probably lateish):
http://anime-online.com/cosplay/list.php

Hugs all! GOOD NIGHT :)



04/02/09 Registration Updates

Sooo I fail at life; my SSL certificate expired TODAY >.<  (from last year...) I'm renewing it right now. If you get an SSL certificate error, that's why Q_Q  I'm sorry! It's still a secure site >.>   April Fool's on ME >.<

The site to register is here:
http://www.anime-online.com/cosplay/

PLEASE ignore the SSL warning >.<  it will be fixed in a couple of hours, but I need to reboot the server to do it and I don't want to do that while people are trying to register.

04/01/09 Registration Updates

We are on track to open this evening at 11:59pm! :)

The links will be on THIS page:
http://www.fanime.com/events/masquerade.html

Instructions:
1. Register yourself
2. Get your confirmation e-mail
3. Click on the link in the e-mail to activate your account (NOTE: AOL users -- I will have to do this manually for you -- AOL seems to block Fanime mail)
4. Go BACK to the registration page, log in at the top of the page, update the rest of your registration.
5. You MUST log in and add at least one contestant or your registration will NOT be confirmed.

Usually I stay up this evening to approve entries and such, but because being pregnant makes me totally exhausted >.<  ... I won't be doing that this year. All entries will be approved on April 2nd.

If you have a problem registering  (once the Reg Application is live) -- POST HERE, PM me, or e-mail me. As long as you do one or the other, I can promise you that I will save a spot for you based on the time you posted and/or e-mailed me and I will help you register tomorrow (note: this only applies for the first day of reg).

Thanks :)

03/31/09 Masquerade UPDATES!!

Sorry I haven't been trolling the forums as much as I should -- I guess I should make it public: I'm pregnant!! So, I've been sick/exhausted/stressed for about 3 months straight now. We are expecting our little one (our very first) in October. So thank you for your patience with me :) I'm probably going to look like a beach ball in May for Fanime ^_^;; Never fear though, we have our super awesome Masquereade team ready to take care of you too!

ANYWAY -- more along the lines of ZOMG Masquerade.... some reminders.

1. Masquerade registration opens TOMORROW, not today. Tomorrow, April 1, at 11:59pm. So, that's basically midnight tomorrow. Please DO NOT stay up all night tonight (March 31). K? I know people always get confused. This is not an April Fool's joke :)

2. There SHOULD be a link up here when it opens:  http://www.fanime.com/events/masquerade.html
However, if there is not, there WILL be a link, right here, in this forum, in this thread. So please check this thread tomorrow night if a link doesn't appear on the forums for some reason.

Thanks and check back here tomorrow for more info!

*hugs*

-------------------
Hi everyone,

I will be working on making this a sticky thread. All information pertaining to the masquerade will be in this thread.

Basic info!

Online Registration Opens on 4/1/09 @ 11:59pm
Online Registration Closes on 5/16/09 @ 11:59pm

Cosplay Spectacular will be held on Saturday, May 23, 2009!

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. Whether you are competing for the first time or have a long history with competition, it's always possible we are doing something different than you might expect. It is your responsibility to read the rules and make sure you understand them. It is also your responsibility ask questions if you are confused. We are here to help you. Let us know your questions and we will do our best to clarify. Please feel free to contact the Cosplay Coordinator [Marisa / angeljibrille] with your questions and/or comments via e-mail cosplay@fanime.com or PM.

The rules will be posted when the Fanime Web Team gets a chance to post them, but they are the same as last year.

Thanks all!!
Marisa


So, if our group is said to be "pending" at this point, does that mean we didn't get in? :(

holy crap sorry for that huge quote! whoops! just meant to ask, "since your post on the 2nd said you'd be approving skits "tomorrow", does that mean we didn't get in since that was like a week ago at least"

*fingers crossed....

*fingers crossed....

OK, here's the deal... The first 50ish groups on the list are approved; everyone else is on the waiting list. If your group does not say "Problem" then it's OK and just on the waiting list. It will move up if people drop out, or the "problem" groups do not fix their entries. I do have one "Pending" which is due to a weapon's policy issue that I am still waiting on Rovers to respond to.

HOWEVER!!!!  In my experience, EVERY SINGLE GROUP on the waiting list gets in. I've never, not once in 10 years of doing this, had a waiting list group not get into the Masquerade who showed up, checked in, and did everything they are supposed to do at the convention. This is because normal attrition is about 20%. That means 20% of the groups "Approved" can't make it for whatever reason, so we infill with Masquerade waiting list people -- that's why we have a waiting list.

Also, if our Masquerade is "short" ... so say we have 50 entries but the total time adds up to only 2 hours of programming (based on their music), we will pad the numbers to get more like 3 hours of programming. It all works out.

So, what do you do? You need to make sure you show up at the convention to sign in at the Masquerade Desk and get your passes and get judged. I'm positive you will be just fine as long as you check in early and do everything we need you to do.

I hope that reassures you :)

Thanks,
Marisa
