Indicate separation of persons by using the "/" in all fields. Ex.)  "First Name(s):  Stephanie/Rachael." Do this for all fields except e-mail and phone number.

Recreation is a replica of an existing character. Original/Mashup is your own custom character.

Make sure you have read through and understand the "Requirements for Entry" before selecting your class. All details can be found on the Cosplay Competition page:

Novice: Is this your first costume ever? Did you only make a couple pieces of your costume? Are you just getting into cosplay or like to do it simply for fun?

Journeyman: Do you love making costumes? This is or isn't your first cosplay and you're still refining your skills, but don't feel like a novice either! Do you love showing off your work but haven't won Best-in-Show at a large cosplay competition before?

Master: Calling all makers, fabricators and builders! Have a great new build you want to show the world? Need an audience of others who truly appreciate the time and work that went into that full suit of armor or intricate dress? Are you new in the game and looking to make a big impression on the community while having fun in the process?

*You must select Master Class if you make and sell anything professionally that is prop or costume related. You must also select Master Class if you have taken first place in a cosplay contest before, either at PCC or another con.

Group: Does the stage call your name? Do you truly love becoming the character(s) you're cosplaying? Show us your team chemistry and costume making skills in a beautiful blend of performance and costume art!
