Sign up for the Costume Contest early! If you sign up on Friday, you’re much more likely to get an appointment for judging than if you wait until Saturday morning. To register, all you need is a printed reference photo for your costume - you won’t be able to register without it. Fan art is not an acceptable reference image, and hand-drawn reference images are only allowed for Original Design entrants. Groups are welcome, and you can print and fill out your entry form early by using the forms at www.awa-con.com. Just click “Events” and then “Costume Contest” for entry forms and rules.
