Masquerade 101
For costumers, future costumers, and those who simply enjoy watching costume events, this overview of convention competitions will look at their history, differences among conventions, the judging processes, and what it takes to make an impact. Also tips on research, fabrication methods, music, reference materials for crafting and judging, and stage presentation ideas for taking original and re-created designs from concept to stage-ready. Panelists include award-winning costumers from past Comic-Cons and many other conventions Allan Lavigne, Judith Grivich, and Rebecca Roberts Ryan. Also, Ian Branson (Comic-Con/WonderCon Masquerade tech director), and moderator Martin Jaquish (Comic-Con/WonderCon Masquerade coordinator since 1992).

NXonNetflix Presents the Comic-Con 2019 Masquerade
The stage becomes a celebration of costuming with a fun competition of comics and pop culture creativity, with impressive re-created and original design costumes crafted by talented attendees. Not a dance or party, it's part talent show, part fashion show, with trophies, cash prizes, and other awards. Doors open for audience seating at 8:00, but the line for choice seating will begin hours earlier. Since the ballroom can fill up, tickets are distributed and will be given out free at noon to those lined up. Any seating tickets that remain will be given out at the Masquerade Desk after 3:00. The Master and Mistress of Ceremonies will again be writers/artists Phil Foglio and Kaja Foglio, with special live entertainment from The Corps Dance Crew and the Saber Guild performance group during the Judging Intermission. Overflow seating available in the Sails Pavilion and Room 6A (tickets not required for those rooms).
