FAQ: What should I keep in mind for my Maskerade costume?

First of all, remember that every entry is only judged against other entries of similar experience, going by the four categories listed on the Maskerade Entry Form.

Maskerade costumes are a special case under the Weapons Policy, in that the Maskerade act and the photo call afterwards are the only times we allow anything classified as a weapon out of Ops.

Besides these points, remember that:

  • The Discworld Convention is a family event and the Maskerade audience will contain children
  • Backstage areas can be a bit tight, so large costumes may be tricky. If in doubt, please contact productions@dwcon.org for more information
