London MCM Comic Con Masquerade Reg Opens Tuesday

Article by Amy Lou (Amy-Lou) posted Thursday 4th April 2013

It is time for the twice yearly rush for places as people look to show off their craftmanship and performance skills at this huge event. Anyone looking to take part in the Saturday and Sunday Masquerades should apply when registrations open at 19:00 BST on Tuesday 09th April on the MCM website.

One participant in Saturday's Masquerade will be selected to represent the UK in the EuroCosplay Championships 2013 Final, along with a second representative to be selected at Ayacon later this year. No special invitation is needed- it is open to any Masquerade entrant who is a) at least 18 years old on or after 25th October 2013; b) a registered citizen of the UK or from a neighbouring unrepresented European country; and of course c) not directly involved with the organisation of any EuroCosplay events- strange that!

The MCM Masquerade Rules are on the website as well and budding performers should note that performances no longer have strict costume requirements- you can now perform in bought costumes to encourage a wider variety of entertainment.

If you have any queries about the Masquerade drop an email to cosplay@mcmexpo.net or find them on the MCM messageboards, Facebook or DeviantArt.

There are no requirements to take part, you do not have to have won awards or competitions with these costumes - we just want your favourite cosplays shown off for others to see!
