Since the publication of the categories for the adult costume contests, many of you have contacted us, wondering how your character might fit into one of the three available categories on each day. As a refresher, these are the current categories:
SATURDAY, APRIL 6TH
Comic Book Heroes
SUNDAY, APRIL 7TH
Comic Book Villains
While I’ve offered suggestions to some (Doctor Who is both a hero and featured in comic books), there are far too many characters available for us to consider. So we’re putting the responsibility on YOU.
Each contestant will have an opportunity on stage to explain exactly how your character fits into one of the three available categories. Our advice? Think outside the box. Be as creative with your reasoning as you are with the costume itself.
If you’re dressed as Deadpool on Saturday, tell us why he’s a comic book hero. If you’re dressed as Deadpool on Sunday, tell us why he’s a comic book villain. If you’re dressed as Deadpool on Monday,… well, you may have larger problems. Or you’re Deadpool.
Either way, you get the idea. Wow us. Win over the crowd. Take home fabulous prizes including almost $5,000 CASH MONEY and a CHAMPIONSHIP BELT. (Photos available soon.) (The belt. Not the cash.)
NOTE: The youth costume contest on Saturday afternoon DOES NOT have any category restrictions.
