Tumblr will once again play host to the 2021 Comic-Con@Home Masquerade
More than a costume contest or cosplay competition, the Comic-Con@Home Masquerade brings costumes to life by including elements of character, story, and mood, sometimes dramatic moments, mock battles, or humorous surprises.
For decades costuming has been an important and fun element at our in-person conventions, as it is throughout the popular arts, so we always provide a venue for our talented and dedicated fan-costumers to share with style their crafted creations. As always, awards will be given in several categories as judged by professional costumers and others in the costume-related arts with prizes awarded in several categories.
Check out this year’s talented contestants, see what all the excitement is about, and consider taking part in the next Comic-Con Masquerade.
Awards & Prizes
Beautiful Comic-Con awards, featuring our custom-created Masquerade medallions, will be presented in categories of: Best In Show, Judges’ Choice, Best Re-Creation, Best Original Design, Best Workmanship, Most Beautiful, Best Group, and Most Humorous. We may expand these categories depending on the costumes that are submitted. Our Masquerade award medallions were designed by fantasy artist and illustrator Sue Dawe, and custom-crafted by the same maker of the Emmy and Golden Globe awards
