#SDCC: The 2010 San Diego Comic-Con International Masquerade – UPDATED
To participate in the contest, the costumes must be original, and participants are required to send photos of themselves creating their costumes. Costumes that have been entered in previous SDCC Masquerades or have won in previous contests are not allowed– which means that means audiences get something new to be dazzled by every year.
Since there is no theme, costumes can depict characters from movies, comics, video games, anime… anything the creator wishes. There’s no telling what to expect, which is part of what makes the Masquerade so exciting.
This year, entries included “12 Signs of the Zodiac”, Mothra girls, and a mashup between the hit show Glee and Marvel’s X-Men, titled Mutant Directions.
We’ll have more photos and video up over the next few days as decent copies become available, along with the final results of the judging.
Updated 9:45 7/25: Videos from the Masquerade are slowly being posted online. Here are the “Best in Show” winners, the Vegas Villains.
Be sure to check out these performances, too. There were some great sketches this year!
Wow the mouth moves! How cool is that?
Nice, exciting choreography!
