AnimeNEXT 2014 Masquerade Update

A set date is not confirmed currently, but for a general idea, registration for the Masquerade will open at the end of April.

We will have Registration open for 1 week or 30 slots, whichever comes first.

We have a lot of awesome fun things in store this year for our contestants.

Don’t forget to read up on all the rules because they have changed!

http://www.animenext.org/events/masquerade/masquerade-rules/

For example:

1. This event is an amateur competition for Anime/Manga costumes, Video Game costumes, Fantasy & Science Fiction costumes (Doctor Who, Star Trek, Lord of the Rings, etc), and any other costumes related to one or more of these categories. Costumes are not limited to just Asian media, but participants are encouraged to focus on such.

2. Original and Fan Art-based costumes are not eligible to participate in the Masquerade. Generic “outfits” and Genderswapping of an established character’s design are not permitted, as they fall under the basis of original and fan art designs. Costumes must be a copy of a published character’s design from Anime, Manga, Video Games, Movies, TV shows, etc.

We will keep you updated as the registration draws near. I’m super excited to see everyone and am looking forward to a fabulous year!
