CoreCon’s Costume Contest is one of the most attended events at our convention! Every year our attendees look forward to seeing all of the creative ways our contestants use different materials and props to complete their one of a kind look! 

Even if this is your first time designing a costume, we encourage you to sign up.  Our categories are novice to master and everything in between.  The most important rule is to use your creativity to put together something awesome!
