Two bits of news.

Cosplayers on Ice '11
Who: Open to all
What: Ice Skating & Photoshoot
When: Saturday, Dec. 3rd. 3pm - 6pm
Where: Centennial Olympic Park Ice Rink
Costs: Photoshoot, free. The park charges a rink fee and a small skate rental fee, if you wish to skate

MomoCon will be invading Centennial Park for a fifth year of fun on-and-off the ice! Door prizes will be given away, including free passes to MomoCon, courtesy of MomoCon on Tour. A photographer will also be onsite to capture the days events. Cosplayers are asked to leave all weapon-props at home for this very-public event.

AND

Black Friday Special:
Every MomoCon pre-registration completed and paid on Black Friday (Friday, November 25th, EST) will receive a special swag bag at the con, filled with figures, candy, plushes, DVDs and random assortments of cool stuff!

Hey artists, just a reminder that the deadline for submissions to our Open Call for Art is one month away: January 7th 2012.

Click here for all the details and technical specs.

You can enter multiple pieces for all the items we are looking for: badges, program book, t-shirt, and promo. If we use your work, you will get a 3-day badge to the con, credit in the program book, and a gift package.

We're looking forward to seeing what you all have created.

And news for all, over half the MomoCon room block at the Marriott is gone. When we run out of rooms, the great free pass deal ends too. Hotel booking link.

As first annouced on twitter ( @momoconcostumes ) feed a couple days ago. We have two Cosplay/Costume related contests this year!

Friday will host a Closet Cosplay Contest where the judging criteria is based on the overall poise and presence of the person in costume. Entrants are expected to have the majority of costume made from purchases off the rack or slightly altered. I.E the costumes that normally were not eligible to enter into competition for the past costume contests.

Saturday will host our traditional Craftsmanship Costume Contest where the judging criteria is solely upon the construction of the costume and props.

A costume entered into Friday's competition will be ineligible to compete for a prize in Saturday's; they can enter as a walk-on for the Cat Walk display portion. I hope to have the finishing touches done to the entry form and full rules done by this weekend. So stay tuned.
