2018 forms for competing in masquerade
« on: March 08, 2018, 09:43:06 PM »

According to the fanime website, forms to compete in the masquerade would be up at the end of January. There is nothing on the website that I can see. I've reached out to masquerade @ fanime as well as cosplay @ fanime and no response (perhaps I'm anxious) on when the forms will be available. I'd like to compete this year, but don't want to miss the deadline. Do we know when forms will be available?

Indeed- there are zero responses, only an update  that the first 25 entries starting in January can be submitted for early reg, and they aren’t even responding to that.
Right now, there is a major staffing change, and we will be lucky to hear anythjng on time at all. I wouldnt be surprised if this is one of those years like 2013. (We don’t talk about that year)

For the most part, sit tight. There will be some kind of registration. Download forms and get familiar with them. Make sure to follow all the rules and guidelines from the previous year as they most likely will stay the same. Gather all of your cosplayers information ahead of time.
Keep checking here, Facebook and Twitter.

Meanwhile, any cosplayers in for Masq- let’s keep communication!

I was wondering this too... Its been a couple years since I've done Fanime's masquerade and I know even then getting the form was a struggle. So no one has any actual updates right?

As long as they stick the rules and guidelines of Asian-inspired entries only, cause last year I found that really unfair.

Regardless though, I'm glad I'm not the only one having "issues" with the lack of updates. Thanks all! I will just have to remain patient. :)

Is it true that if you want to enter, it has to be based from something Japanese?

 If worse comes to worse they do have an on site sign up in one of the halls in case one of the people who signed up online doesn't show up. Just come prepared with your recordings and everything should be fine.

Well Asian related really as it can be Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Vietnamese, and etc.

Obvious examples are pretty much any anime/manga/manhwa.

But you can also use themes or characters from videogames which originate from Asian companies or culture. Examples of this are games produced by Capcom, Nintendo, Square Enix, Konami, Sega, and etc. They are all within the rules to use.

There are also cases of shows related to Asian themes such as shows like Avatar the last airbender was OK.

I hope this helped.
