Categories

There are 2 prize categories this year:

 

1st prize: Best Costume – Close up review of the design and craftsmanship that goes into costume creation and construction. How does the outfit look? Does it Transform?

It’s all about costume quality if you want to win 1st prize!

 

2nd prize: Best Performance – You’re wearing a costume, but can you act the part? We’re looking for a great performance in a great costume.

Character presentation is the key to winning 2nd prize!"

 

My 2 cents: I love looking at all the talented TF fans art,customs & Costumes at conventions via my computer.

 

I have a few questions:

 

1- Will hasbro attend TF Con? I think they might have in previous years.

 

2- Will their be 3rd party companies selling stuff,showing off future projects & having live panels? I think they might have in previous years.
