The Hall Costume Award (HCA) at NekoCon is different from other conventions Hall Costume Contests, as there is no actual competition element involved.
Here at NekoCon we believe that there are many great costumes that come and go from Thursday night to Sunday evening, too many in fact to name just a few. Therefore we give special recognition to those truly unique and amazing costumes wandering the halls that may never see the Masquerades main stage or competition. You never know – your first costume ever may catch our eyes!
Recipients of the Hall Costume Award receive a special NekoCon blue ribbon that they can proudly display, and are given the chance to show off those costumes during the Masquerade.
No sign-up is necessary. Just walk around in your costume and the HCA team will find you! If you’d rather watch the Masquerade than take a bow on stage that’s fine as your ribbons get you special advanced seating for the show. If you have any questions in regards to the Hall Costume Award please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll do our best to answer you!
