Costume Contest


Wanna feel like a Rockstar? Bring your favorite costume and show it off for all to see! Whether you're new to cosplay, or seasoned veteran, you will have a great time showing off for the audience and judges. 

See Rules Below

Major awards go to "Best in Show", "Most Creative"  and "Fan Favorite" and "Best Apprentice Costume" (under 21).  The contest will be judged by some of our featured presenters and costuming aficionados, based on authenticity, originality, and a few other factors as appropriate.   Several POCmark (con cash) prizes will also be awarded for other categories that will be announced at the event ("Best Group", "Best Child's Costume", etc.).  Be there with your best and strut your stuff for this on Saturday night!

All costumes entered in any POC Programming contest must be PG-13 or lower.  Family show, folks!  Please save the grown-up costumes for the party dorms.

To sign up for the costume contest, simply show up to the event, preferably a few minutes early, and sign the sheet at the "presenter check-in" table.

  We need all the input that we can get to make Play On Con the best convention that it can be. If you have programming concepts, share them! If you have artistic ideas, let us know! If you want to help with convention operations, contact Marc to join the crew! We welcome your talents, and hope that you will volunteer to help!
