My name is Marisa and I am the Masquerade Head for FanimeCon. You may remember me and my team from FanimeCon 2003 - 2012, or from many of the other conventions where we have run Masquerades over the years. We are so happy to be back at FanimeCon.

Please start planning that skit and/or craftsmanship entry in advance for Masquerade 2023!

Online Masquerade Contestant Application (Opens March 4, 2023, at 12:00 pm PST)

FanimeCon Masquerade is By Fans, For Fans: Cosplay for everyone!
We welcome both new and experienced cosplayers!

Participate in one (or both!) of our two prize tracts:
- Performance: sing, dance, or do a skit. No craftsmanship required!
- Craftsmanship: show us your elite skills!

We are changing it up this year to accommodate new cosplayers or those who may have a fantastic skit idea, but can't make their own costume, with our performance-only division. Unless you check the box for "judge craftsmanship" we will not ask you if you purchased your costume or had your [Insert Here] make it for you. You will only be judged on your performance and how it relates to the character you are portraying.

We still have a craftsmanship prize tract for our cosplay artisans! You can do both! We have prizes for those who do both performance and craftsmanship!

We look forward to seeing you in 2023!


Is it relevant this year?
I would like to apply for this time.
I study not far from the venue, and I can say that the group and I at the college constantly check the setting there, despite the educational process. I think that immediately after the opening there will be a really large audience of those who interested. I will come with everyone: students, writers from the site, professors, teachers. We are waiting for information from you.
